Catching Up On A Sunday

As I shared yesterday, the blog has been quiet here and I took a blogging break. My plan is to get back into regular blogging. I've missed it and writing about books and other things as well as connections with the wonderful people that I have met through blogging. I have been reading, although not as much and I plan to change that as well and read more. My focus will be  on reading books of my own choosing and not being pressured to review books on a deadline. So, I will be very selective about what I write about in my reviews. I believe I was also struggling with burnout and writers block. I felt pressure to write reviews and my focus now will be on quality reviews/thoughts on books that are short and to the point.  

I have dealt with some health issues that have taken my focus away from many things. I am still dealing with this but realized that I need to focus on things that I enjoy and find that balance. Reading and books have always been my favorite things and they bring me joy and happiness so I plan to focus on that along with my's all about balance! As an Occupational Therapist, I started a new part time job, this past fall and work with preschoolers. Besides being exposed to a lot of germs, I have enjoyed the sweetness of these little ones. Early intervention is so important with special needs children. 

I appreciate those who are still checking my blog and commenting, your support means a lot to me. I've stayed connected to many bloggers through facebook and I've started visiting blogs today and plan to continue that. 

I will share with you what I am reading and I plan to start posting reviews of some of the books that I have been reading.

  1. I'm sorry you've been having health issues and I'm glad to see you back. There are no rules to blogging so just do what you want.

  2. Sorry to hear you've been having health issues, Bonnie! Glad to see you back blogging! Your new job sounds wonderful; kids are so good for a person's mood (well, most of the time!).

  3. I'm so happy to see you! I wondered about your health and job. Sorry to hear that you have still been struggling with your health. Regarding your blog, whatever you do, I'll be reading. :)

  4. I have Faithful Place on audio too!! What do you think so far of it???? I'm glad you're back and blogging on your terms!! You Go Girl!!!

  5. So glad you are back. Just remember to take it easy and to just have fun.

    I hear you on the health issues. I made the mistake of stopping my meds. When I was so sick with the flu, I went for a month without them and had no ill effects so I figured I could just quit them entirely. Wrong! It took awhile but my ankle swollen to baseball size and the lump at the joint of my elbow told me to start taking them again.
