A couple of weeks ago I pinched a nerve in my neck which has caused my stitching hand to go numb. I am on a course of meds and HOPE!! that it brings me some relief because I am really really missing my stitching!!
I have been trying to rest as much as I can and although I have become quite adept at using my other hand on the mouse I am trying to limit my typing as it is just frustrating!, so please forgive me for not commenting so much lately.
So instead of stitching I have been catching up on my reading. Last I mentioned I had started Love in the Time of Cholera. I finished it a few weeks back, and I give it a thumbs up. I liked it but didn't love it. At first I found it so interesting as it was a translated work and I was enjoying the romantic flourish and detail of the story. Gabriel Garcia Marquez truly has a way of bringing the written word to a new level. However, and I think mainly due to the way the book was translated and printed, after a while, I started to be at a loss at what time period I was in, it seemed very vague as years were flying by. And, I did not understand the purpose of having all of the characters named by their full name throughout the entire book? for those who have read this I think you will know what I mean. I feel like I have read the names 'Florentino Ariza' and 'Fermina Daza' a ga-zillion times, LOL! And even if I tried to just read the first name it did not work, in my mind I would read it all. It started to exhaust me. Now that I have read the story though I will finally get to watch the movie, which I think will be a good way to reflect back on the book, as well as watch Javier Bardem!
So I am on to a new book, full speed back into the future... Stephen King's Under the Dome...
As only Stephen King can do, I was immediately swept away. I love getting into his thousand-pagers!!
The bummer is I just broke my e-reader!! So now I am reading it on my phone when I am out and about. I had the kobo and was wondering what type of e-readers you all may be using and how you like them?? Since I need to get a new one maybe now is the time to change?
Hope you are enjoying the Spring weather that seems to have finally arrived! I hope to be back stitching with all of you soon. Wishing you miles of smiles!
