The Sweetness of Doing Nothing

 My friend Sherri surprised me with a lovely gift this morning. It’s a book called “The Sweetness of Doing Nothing” by Sophie Minchilli daughter of  Elizabeth Minchilli.  I happen to follow both women and love their posts. It’s ironic that just before this gift arrived I was gazing out to the garden enjoying doing nothing but looking out at sunshine and the shadows of the red bottle brush trees against the green leaves. Despite the setbacks of the pandemic I’ve learned many good lessons. Living life the Italian way, slowing down to enjoy the sweetness of doing nothing yet taking the whole of life’s blessings in, is one of them. Thank you Sherri!

 I'm so happy Sofia was able to join a Daisy troop for the Girl Scouts. I am reliving many wonderful times that we as a family enjoyed with our long ago family girl scout adventures. Last week Sofia's troop took a field trip to a science center where they made robots and learned simple coding commands. Sofia's school friend Oliver loves robots so she made a drawing of a robot for him. Today the family is on yet another field trip with the troop to Discovery gardens in Dallas.

Not Just About A Book Club Reads "The Four Winds"


We met on Thursday May 20 at book club member Sharon's home. It was the first time we have met together in person at someone's home since Covid 19 restrictions began in 2020.  It was wonderful to be mask free and to hug each other.  We felt sunshine on our shoulders and in our hearts.

We had a wonderful time being together and discussing "The Four Winds" which was a powerful read for all.  Thoughtful discussions about the book followed.  Wonderful to be with everyone again.


 Special thanks to our hostess Sharon
