I have decided, in order to "stay in the loop", to do a few OLD postings of mine....I hope you won't mind.
I may not be able to post EVERY day, but, I will try.

Once my strength comes back, I can begin to take new pictures again.


The stories, the places books take us to, the information, the pure fun of reading....
and a bonus....
the books themselves are BEAUTIFUL
I love FUN book-ends, too....

And a good, comfy chair to sit while I read....

I found these cute baskets at TJ MAXX
(one of my favorite stores)

I've had HER for a long, long time....
Probably from WALMART and I just love her.

hope your day is fabulous,

Hi BJ,
Glad to see you posting again. All of your old posts are new to me...I haven't been blogging but a couple of months...and I have found so many blogs I enjoy reading! So...keep on with your old posts as long as you like. Your home and pictures look beautiful. I love TJ Maxx too...I always find something there that I can use!

BJ - so glad you are feeling better and better every day - I love all your old posts - I periodically go back and read them...I love to read, too!! Like mini-vacations for me!! When I read, I am oblivious to anything else going on around me!! I love it!! Right now I am reading an old classic - Cold Sassy Tree - wonderful book.

BJ, your old posts are still fun to see! Believe your doctor, time is the great healer. My 84 yo Dad is with us for 10 days now following cervical spine surgery, and that is what I keep telling him. DON'T let yourself get discouraged. It just takes times to get your strength back. Love you, Christy:-)<><

Beverly said...

Dear lady, you will always be in my loop. I am just so thankful to know that you are stirring around. I am praying for your strength and well-being every day.

Adrienne said...

What a great reminder of your wonderful bookshelves. I wish I could drop by, find a quiet corner and read your books! So glad you're back and making some progress. ~Adrienne~

Kathleen Grace said...

Good morning BJ! It is reassuring to see that you are able to be up and about enough to post even oldies. They are all goodies so no worries. Take it easy and get better:>)

Rosie's Whimsy said...

Sweet, sweet BJ! This is the first chance I have had all week to greet you and wish you a steady recovery now that you are home.

We will always be here waiting with joy for your next post but we won't get discouraged if there is a lot of time between them so don't you fret.

Instead, read the day away ..... listen to music ..... and let other's grant your wishes :-) Get well sweet lady!

((hugs)) Rosie

BJ, I'm so glad you feel like sharing some of your older posts with us. Being fairly new to blogging, I haven't read them, but would probably enjoy reading them again even if I had.

I, too, love to read and love "pretty" books. They say you can't judge a book by its cover, but I do. I love the covers of Belva Plain's books and Barbara Delinsky's.

You take care now ... and keep on getting stronger.


Suzy said...

My sweet BJ,
as I saw your post today I just know that you are getting back in shape. It is nice and so good to read your sweet writings. From the first day I loved your library and I like the cute baskets. As usually so many magnificent details.
I am wishing you a magnificent weekend.

Love Suzy

Hello Dear BJ,

Old posts are fine to me. glad to see you are doing better each day.
I had no idea your surgery was so serious. Take care of yourself. We love you!


Brown-Eyes said...

Hello Mrs. B.J. You are such an inspiration! I'd probably be curled in a big ol' self-pity wad lamenting about how much I've been through if I were you...but thanks be to our God Almighty you are moving on toward a complete healing and keeping in touch with all of blog-lurkers who miss you terribly...Sending lots of prayers & loves your way, :-) Brown-Eyes

Cottage Rose said...

Hello B J; I love you large wall of book shelves. It is so pretty. Wow I thought I had books, you win... lol
Hope you are doing well. You are still in my prayers. And I am glad to be reading you posts. take care.

BJ it is just so good to hear you are home and on the mend.
Take care of yourself.


Life on Bonnie Lane said...

You amaze me that you are getting up and about already! I'm not sure I would have that kind of determination if I had gone through what you did. You're so sweet to think of us all, but you really could take a vacation from us and work on getting yourself well. However, if this is what makes you feel better, then more power to you! I am just beyond thrilled that you are on the mend!
