It been awhile since we have shared a cup of tea or coffee but inside as it is sunny and freezing outside. There is a plate of Gluten Free goodies. It is 17° F this morning

I want to WELCOME all my new followers. I do appreciate all the clicks, likes, and comments that are on my blog. According WordPress I now have 889/my computer says I have 5 more. Twitter 67, Goodreads 305, Tumblr over 50, I also have followers on LinkedIn and don’t know how many. I want to remind everyone that most of the pictures were taken my husband, ROBERT  R. DAVENPORT during our RV adventure.

The train was taken southeast of the Tacoma area. They serve dinner and went a tourist area. I don’t remember where.

I turned 87 on July 6 and my health is poor. I am THANKFUL that can still WALK and SEE. My hearing is almost gone. It has been confirmed that I will get a shot every 6 months to help strengthen my bones. The first one time this week. I am finally seeing a dermatologist today. Tomorrow I have appointment to see my eye doctor.  I am behind in my e-mail mostly reviews to read. My husband is also 87 and has heart problems.

I have been stress out today. My Kindle has been charging as today it hasn’t shut down. It is still under warranty. I had 4 chats and one phone call about this it. Made that 5!!!

 I DON’T WANT REPLACEMENT!! My caregiver called Amazon this morning and are sending Kindle one that guarantee to arrive by Friday and they even sent a preprint label. The electronic problems keep on appearing out nowhere. Had other one with an ARC this morning but managed to find an answer and have the ARC. I will not have time for some of usual blogs this week. I am reading THE GOLDEN TRESSES OF dead by Alan Bradley and Liz Musgaveo MURDER SHE MEOWED 

Today  I received  an okay for 3 books from authors I enjoy.

Penstemon species I have forgotten which red one. Taken near in Southern California San Bernardino.

I have several blogs that I want to do but so far they are still in my mind. One on Sunsets and rises. One on traveling with a cat. Not all cats travel easy especially those that only go to the vets.  When I started the blog 4 years ago I promised someone to write about my grandmothers. I realize I need to write especially as my paternal Grandmother as she wrote a book on her homesteading in Idaho. It is called GODS OF SILVER MOUNTAIN.

Niland Landing near the Salton Sea, California

What would tell me? Have you read any good books recently?
