    Actually, I was virtually speechless for some time!

    I made the turkey/sweet potato hash in the Weekend Link Love. Don't bother. A waste of ingredients, I am sad to say. It was very blah. For one thing, I don't think turkey has enough flavor and oomph to hold up to the other ingredients. Maybe if you did some major seasoning revamping. But why bother? There are so many other great things to whip up.

    I have to report on a book I read that is so good I can't stop thinking about it. It is a young adult novel called My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece by Annabel Pitcher. I don't usually like dysfunctional family type stuff. For one thing, books like that just seem to go over the same ground, over and over and over. Somehow Pitcher takes on alcoholism, eating disorders, grief, bullying, and a couple of other nasties and tells a great story AND manages to bring it all to a satisfying but not exactly happy ending. The amazing thing is that this is her first novel. I can't wait for the next one, which will be out shortly.

    Finger is sore but not as sore as you might think. Typing is hard.

    Good to know about the hash. I'll stick with my corned beef and sweet potato combo.

    I am already reading 'Katherine'. Do I have to put something else on hold at the library? Great title, I must say.

    Yes, you do. You must read it. It is very short. Another amazing thing about this novel, the author says more in 214 pages than many authors ever say.

    Glad you enjoyed the book - I have been around some of that stuff enough that I can't face reading about it too. Rather forget that it happens for a while, until it gets shoved in my face again. Sounds like she did a great job though by your description.

    The finger seems to be healing up nicely although it is still early days. I couldn't stand the thought of not swimming while it heals, so I rigged up a glove-tape combo to keep it dry. It worked fine. The glove is light gray and the tape is clear, so it is not even that noticeable. So I had a good swim, and also did an IF today.

    There is a therapy pool in addition to the regular pool and often there are people working with handicapped adults. I wonder if I should look into volunteering or something to help out with that? I wonder if I can even do it? I love the water so much I want everyone to enjoy it. Today a young man was afraid to get in the water, and took a great deal of encouragement. But when he got in, he loved it! It was a beautiful thing to see.

    Feeling better today. I had a nice weekend despite being depressed and the fingernail incident. Back to work tonight.
