Sunday Bookends: World War II Espionage, still recovering, and getting back into writing a little

What’s Been Occurring

Yep, I’m still recovering from COVID. No, I’m not 100 percent yet.

Yes, I still have the trembling or vibrating, but some days it is a little better than others. It never goes away 100 percent. I also have vertigo but dealt with that before Covid.

This week I remembered something else about when this happened on a smaller scale in 2017. I also had a virus when the vibrating started too back then. Weird, I know. It’s almost like certain viruses trigger some sort of auto immune response in my body. I don’t know but for now I am taking CBD oil to try to at least reduce the issue and it does seem to help.

The brain fog and fatigue are at least getting a little better.

Because I am still recovering, we haven’t done much that requires me to leave the house, other than to visit my parents.

I stay in the house and write and do homeschool with the kids, so not that much different than before.

What I’ve Been Watching

I have been watching a lot of clean comedians on YouTube in the last two weeks. A lot.

I went on a Ken Davis binge for a few days and then it was Chonda Pierce.

I’m watching anything that will make me laugh right now.

Last night we watched Free Guy on the advice of my brother and really enjoyed it.

What I’m Reading

This week I am finishing Saving Mrs. Roosevelt by Candice Sue Patterson.

Here is a description to whet your appetite for my review next week:

The Safety of the First Lady Rests in Shirley’s Hands

Shirley Davenport is as much a patriot as her four brothers. She, too, wants to aid her country in the war efforts, but opportunities for women are limited. When her best friend Joan informs her that the Coast Guard has opened a new branch for single women, they both enlist in the SPARs, ready to help protect the home front.
Training is rigorous, and Shirley is disappointed that she and Joan are sent to separate training camps. At the end of basic training, Captain Webber commends her efforts and commissions her home to Maine under the ruse of a dishonorable discharge to help uncover a plot against the First Lady.

Shirley soon discovers nothing is as it seems. Who can she trust? Why do the people she loves want to harm the First Lady? With the help of Captain Webber, it’s a race against time to save Mrs. Roosevelt and remain alive.

I’m not sure yet what I will read after this one but I do have a preview of the sequel to The Rhise of Light by Max Sternberg, which I am excited to dig into, and another author sent their book to me to read too.

What I’m Writing

I’m working a little bit on my third book in the Spencer Valley Chronicles series, which I have renamed A New Chapter, I think. I’m not sure. Maybe.

I wrote about 900 words Friday, which is not a lot but considering all I’ve had gone on with my health this week, I’ll take it.

I’m also working on blog posts here and there and managed to share one post this past week:

Faithfully Thinking: Peace That Passes All Understanding

Tomorrow I plan to have an update post on my roommate at the hospital.

What I’m Listening To

I’m listening to a lot of Christian music still.

One artist that is on my radar this week is Matthew West.

My daughter loves this song and sent me a recording the other night of her singing it in the back of her dad’s car on the way back from Awana (a Christian program at my parent’s church). She sent it through Messenger Kids which she uses with her little friends.

So that is my week in review. What’s been going on in your world? Let me know in the comments.

  1. I am so thankful you are on the road to mending! I will still keep praying! I’ve been reading a fictionalized account of the relationship between David Brainerd and Jerusha Edwards, that’s very fascinating. And I am patiently waiting to hear about Liz and Ginny, 😍 wanting you to take plenty of time to rest and recover! Praying blessings for you and your family during this Christmas season.

    • I will have to try to pull something together for fiction Friday this week. I don’t even know where I left off!

      Thank you for the prayers. I could still use them that is for sure but I am having some good moments in my days thankfully!
