Yes, Marion the Librarian was correct. "Silas Marner" was milk toast after 15 minutes of Toni Morrison's "Beloved." What was difficult at the beginning were the long sentences and paragraphs! Remember I work with Kindergartners therefore I am use to 5 word sentences or less! I probably found the bio on Elliot more interesting than the book. That was fascinating! I did not know she was the author of "Daniel Deronda." One of my most favorite movies. I am going to have to see if our library has that book, but for the moment I am reading, "Anna Karenina" by Tolstoy. All 800 some pages of it!!!! I loved the first third, but did find a lull in the middle. Am looking forward to the last third. I have decided I need to read Spark Notes as I go along. I took a quiz on "Silas Marner" and I refuse to divulge my score! Perhaps I should have taken the quiz immediately after I read the novel instead of waiting a month. Between my age and A.D.D. I must admit I had forgotten some details. Does that surprise any of you?!?

"Oh, they can't. It is a man cave. I am the guard of the man cave so I have to make sure they don't go in. But my mom goes in to clean it!" he tells me. This was where I burst out laughing! Then I told him to go home and tell his dad Mrs. Bassett said he needs to clean his own man cave!

Oil wells! I have a fondness for oil wells, thanks to my growing up years in Rangley, Colorado. Going through Rock Springs and Rawlins I was definitely reminded of Rangely countryside. Beauty would be in the eye of the beholder. Rangely, was beautiful country to me.
Welcome to Nebraska! Home of the Cornhuskers. Though it was too early in the season to see much of that. We did see some tractors out in the fields. Also saw a large flock of wild Turkeys.
Nebraska was where I decided I was a prairie type woman. I have been from east coast to west and love and enjoy the beautiful scenery of it all, but have to admit mountains and trees tend to give me claustophobia. I prefer the wide open spaces. Sidney, Nebraska was an absolutely beautiful town to me!
Welcome to Bellevue, Nebraska and it truly was a 'Bellevue' (beautiful sight). Check out the following beautiful sights!
Beautiful sight #1: Little Miss Sofia. She is such a sweetheart! And, it was so fun to rock, cuddle, and have a baby sleep on Grandma!
Beautiful sight #2: Sofia's big brother Jaedon and big sis Livy. We had so much fun with these 3 little ones. Grandpa was a great sport entertaining Jaedon and Livy... playing games, swimming, entertaining them on the playground while Grandma enjoyed taking care of Sofia.
Welcome to Delta, Utah! As Dorothy would say: "There is no place like home!"
