Java with Jo


I've decided that about once a week I want to post something that just shares some random things about me, they may be book-related or they may not be.  I just wanted an opportunity to share some things that may be going on in my life.  This post could be any day of the week, as it is not part of a meme in any way and I don't want another commitment right now.  I am titling this segment Java with Jo because I love my coffee!  People really should not talk to me in the morning until I've had about a half a pot of coffee.

My life has been pretty busy lately as a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving we moved my Grandma in with us.  So the kids are out and Grandma is in!  Grandma is 87 years old and is fairly healthy.  She gets around our house pretty well and I'm also grateful that we are able to have home health care come to help her out during the week while my husband and I are both working.

Last week was super busy for me so Grandma has probably been lonely in the evenings because I haven't been getting home until almost 10pm every night.  I work every day from 8-4:30, so when I don't get home until 10pm that makes for a long day, even if it is for fun stuff!  I had birthday club Tuesday night, Wednesday night was book club, Thursday night was choir and ladies bowling, and Friday night was mixed couples bowling.  Crazy I say! 

With my evenings so busy this last week I haven't had much time for reading, but I'm hoping to catch up on Monday, since I am taking a day off just to relax.  I've started reading Her Fearful Symmetry and I'm enjoying it so far. 

I wasn't feeling so good this morning so I stayed home from church today, but if I am feeling better this afternoon I plan on going to the choir concert yet, where I have to sing.  Wish me luck and enjoy the rest of the weekend everyone!

This was fun to read. I REALLY love the message on your button. Your life sounds full, a little too full. Forgive me but I couldn't help saying, "I'm so glad I'm retired." I do remember those very full weeks.

Hope you feel better soon! And I love the idea of a post that may or may not be bookish! I love learning more about fellow bloggers. I miss my Grandma... sounds like you have a great relationship with yours as well.

Love the pic on your post too. Those vintage looking pics with hilarious (and true!) captions are hilarious!

Java with Jo is a great idea! My grandmother is the same age as yours and still lives at home, but I don't know how long that can continue.
Hope you have a relaxing day or two :)

Jenny loves her Java too. I knew there was a reason I liked you :)
I completely get the update post thing. Sometimes you just want to talk about other things, or vent, etc. I like it.
My husband and I order Kona coffee from this website and it is freaking awesome!
Sharkeys coffee
It is very reasonable considering how expensive Hawaiian coffee is.
