This Week’s Reads: The Sweetness of Water – Total Health Turnaround – The Lord of the Rings #AmReading #Books #Reads

Hey, everyone! I hope you’re all doing well this week. First, I have to apologize for being somewhat absent recently; I’ve tried to keep up with posts, but it’s been difficult for me. I’ve been dealing with some health problems, which has led me back into the doctor’s realm again—where I don’t want to be. Since my daughter was sick, and the stress of dealing with that on top of some other things (I believe) has activated something in my system and I’m in a bit of a setback now. Something really neat happened though: I went to the wrong doctor. Have you ever gone to the wrong doctor because there were other doctors with the same last name and Google misled you? I did, and at first it seemed like a huge nuisance. I was supposed to be visiting a cardiologist in a new group and instead I went to his cousin’s office, who’s a family doctor but highly active in functional medicine. It must be a sign because it’s exactly where I needed to be. I’ve always had an interest in functional medicine, and this doctor tends to treat with a more natural approach. We talked for a time, and he didn’t even charge me for the visit. What’s happened to me is an imbalance of stress hormones (including a thyroid imbalance no surprise), and I’m hopeful I can get it under control quickly. My plan is to go back and sit down with him for a comprehensive visit. So, there’s something good that happened for me this week. 😀

In the reading world, I’ve finally finished The Princess Bride over the weekend. I’ve been thinking about it considerably, and I’m finally ready to write up a review. We watched the movie again so I could compare the two with both fresh in my mind. There was so much that I forgot about, even with this being a reread. It turned out to be a good experience overall.

We also finished The Black Stallion, and then we watched the movie with Mickey Rooney, and I cried. Gosh it was good. Watch for that review coming up for Shabby Sunday.



My new fiction book pick for this week is The Sweetness of Water by Nathan Harris.
