HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY. You can read my book for free on kindle.com. ENJOY!
My book keeps selling. The sales are all in the U.S. so far but they are selling!
Hope you enjoy the read!
THERE IS a list of 5 MAJOR CONCERNS we all have. We all can figure out what they are but what better way to sensitize or remind staff than through humor?
I am available to broach these tough subjects in an entertaining manner. Just get in touch with me!
This lady clearly loves flowers but her yard is slightly overgrown and there are odd pots strewn here and there. Her house is a little run down and I can relate. Once I got joy from doing the gardening and my daughter even bought me special garden knee pads to help me with my work. But my knees now hurt and I am afraid that if I go down on them, I may never get up. Besides, I can only do a certain amount in the day, and writing and doing art has replaced my love of gardening. I can see letting the house go a little at a time because that is how aging happens, a little at a time. And at this point in my life, I became Cindi Lauper: I JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN!
Nonetheless, I am very fond of this lady and her house and her garden and perhaps I will get a dog!
There are benefits to publishing that no one really talks about. It opens the door to a whole new world of networking. You have put yourself out there and others who have done so, recognize it. THANK YOU to CARYN ISAACS, Patient Advocate, who invited me (and my husband by default), to a networking party of SUN-Q. I learned a whole new vocabulary yesterday – the vocabulary of SUN-Q. There are people in place, out there, to help with elder care- all the different resources that are available – in Queens but they exist in Brooklyn, on Long Island. They are a phone call away.
My book RAGING AGAINST AGING was the raffle prize. And I was there, as its author.
THANK YOU AGAIN! Your parents do not need to age alone. And our generation put in place a safety net so that we will not have to age alone, either. Let’s hear it for the Boomers!
I got to sit in Johanna Hurwitz’s study and chat with her for almost two hours. Johanna Hurwitz, author of CLASS CLOWN, ALI BABA BERNSTEIN, ALDO APPLESAUCE AND MORE THAN 70 OTHER BOOKS, is my hero. This invite came via mutual friends who read my book. I had taken a workshop with Johanna years ago.
Anyway, my daughter sent the principal of my grandson’s school Johanna’s proposal. I am praying that Johanna Hurwitz, who is one of my daughter’s beloved authors, and is now my grandson’s and granddaughter’s beloved author, will be a guest speaker at my my grandson’s school. I will post when this will actually happen.
IF YOU HAVE GRANDKIDS, GO TO AMAZON.COM AND PURCHASE HER BOOKS AS GIFTS. YOUR OWN KIDS WILL THANK YOU FOR REMINDING THEM OF SOME OF THEIR CHILDHOOD FAVORITES.
I finished the kids’ room. For those of you who remember the baby shower – these dolls have a Merimekko elephant wall hanging. And like the original, that wall hanging dictated the room decoration.
Anyone want to play dolls with me?
