Happy Saturday, what have you been up to this week? Here is a rundown of highlights for the week. I hope you find them useful in your life! My goal as a person and a writer are to always Pay-It-Forward, so please let me know how I can help you. YES, YOU!


Enjoy your weekend & this post! Amazing things to come!

What am I Reading? –- Home Before Dark: A Novel by Riley Sager ~ What was it like? Living in that house.


Maggie Holt is used to such questions. Twenty-five years ago, she and her parents, Ewan and Jess, moved into Baneberry Hall, a rambling Victorian estate in the Vermont woods. They spent three weeks there before fleeing in the dead of night, an ordeal Ewan later recounted in a nonfiction book called House of Horrors. His tale of ghostly happenings and encounters with malevolent spirits became a worldwide phenomenon, rivaling The Amityville Horror in popularity—and skepticism.

Today, Maggie is a restorer of old homes and too young to remember any of the events mentioned in her father's book. But she also doesn’t believe a word of it. Ghosts, after all, don’t exist. When Maggie inherits Baneberry Hall after her father's death, she returns to renovate the place to prepare it for sale. But her homecoming is anything but warm. People from the past, chronicled in House of Horrors, lurk in the shadows. And locals aren’t thrilled that their small town has been made infamous thanks to Maggie’s father. Even more unnerving is Baneberry Hall itself—a place filled with relics from another era that hint at a history of dark deeds. As Maggie experiences strange occurrences straight out of her father’s book, she starts to believe that what he wrote was more fact than fiction.



What am I Listening to? – - The Art of Limitless Living: The Joy, Possibility and Power of Living a Heart-Centered Life by Melissa Joy Jonsson
We already are what we wish to become. 

Join inspiring, life-transformational leader Melissa Joy on a journey to the heart of interactive reality creation, where self-love is the new normal. 

Humanity is in a position that we have never been in previously, on new and unfamiliar terrain. You may be at a place in your own life where you are aware that "tried and true" behaviors and beliefs are no longer working. You may be unsure how to proceed. 

Through a brilliant weave of unique language, testimonials, and practical play, The Art of Limitless Living provides multiple access points for creating new self-loving maps to navigate through changing landscapes. 

 

What Quote am I Pondering? –  “The first draft is just you telling yourself the story.” I used to think I was not a multi-draft person but, I am learning I am just that. I do it a little differently as the story grows.

 

What am I Researching? –  This week I discovered a new app MeWe. It is like FB and IG before they became popular. Kinda a nice break from the Social media norm. If you check it out. Definitely friend me, and we can discover together. Also read an Article in the LA Times about a sportscaster who ended up with COVID-19. He describes what it was like. I found it interesting. Here is the link. https://www.latimes.com/sports/story/2020-08-12/column-bill-plaschke-covid-19-experience



Yummy Meal of the Week – Apple Walnut Salad with Chicken - https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/apple-and-walnut-salad/
this is a no mayo, yogurt, or any other kind of creamy dressing salad. Eaten with a sweet vinaigrette which offsets the bleu cheese and tangy apples. Mouth-watering yum!

 

What did I Learn? –  I missed walking outside. About a year and a half ago I stopped walking outside. I didn’t realize how much I enjoyed walking in the fresh air, and sunshine. It gives me a clarity of mind and energy I have been missing. I am back to my goal of 10 thousand steps a day!

 

What am I Watching? – - Unwell on Netflix – Docuseries about the industry of being well. I got my son hooked on The Rookie on Hulu, sadly they only have Season Two so now I am on the hunt for Season One for him to watch.
