Fellow author and blogger Glenda Beall has been recuperating from COVID while visiting her sister and brother-in-law. In this post, she shares her experiences and recommends an interesting book. Enjoy!

 

Here I am recovering from COVID and watching the snow falling beautifully. I have survived the virus thanks to having been vaccinated and having taken a booster shot. Gay, Stu, and I tested negative tonight and I am so relieved. With Gay taking care of me and being with me so much, I have been afraid she would catch it, but she has had her shots, too.

I usually don’t read mysteries, but since I’ve always been fascinated by stories about musicians, I think this might be a worthwhile read. The author, Trish Hubschman, who recently reviewed my latest book Why Grandma Doesn’t Know Me, is offering her book, Tidalwave, for free from Smashwords for the next couple of weeks in exchange for  reviews on Smashwords and Goodreads. So, I plan to read and review this book and hope you’ll do the same. You’ll find more information at the link below. Happy reading!

If you have a valid reason for not wearing a mask or getting vaccinated against COVID such as post-traumatic stress disorder or a chronic health condition that wouldn’t allow you to tolerate the vaccine’s side effects, this post isn’t directed at you. But if you’re one of those people who think your body is a mansion or nobody can tell you what to do, I hope you’ll read this and always do the right thing. If you don’t, you’re part of the problem, and thanks to you, the coronavirus will never go away.

The Omicron variant is “hitting us fast” according to news commentators and the CDC. Still the beat goes on. Those who have been vaccinated and boosted are in less danger of infection or severe illness than those who don’t. It is those who have refused to get vaccinated about whom I write today.

Posadas: A Note and Short Story #WordPressWednesday #Reblogs #Inspiration

Image contains: Abbie, smiling.

With Christmas just around the corner, here’s a delightful short story and some information about a holiday tradition by fellow author and blogger Alice Massa. This was posted on December 16th, which would make today the seventh day of Posadas. Are you intrigued? Well, read on to learn more.

On this first of nine nights of Posadas, I am sharing with you one of my favorite short stories (a genre which, as my regular WORDWALK readers know, I write and post only rarely).  In Mexico and many other Spanish-speaking countries, as well as in parts of the United States, Posadas is the religious celebration or festival that commemorates the journey that Mary and Joseph took from Nazareth to Bethlehem.

Lapping It Up #WordPressWednesday #Reblogs #Inspiration

Image contains: Abbie, smiling.

For someone like me with a visual impairment, learning to use a laptop can be frustrating. But we’re not the only ones who can have trouble, as evidenced by the post I’m sharing today. Author Stevie Turner talks about her first day’s experience with a laptop supplied by her employer. She decided to start working from home to limit possible exposure to COVID. But after reading this, I hope she’s not thinking that having the coronavirus might be a better option. I also hope that her more technologically savvy husband can help her get things straightened out.

Today has been the day that I began to work from home to save catching the Rona, which seems to be accelerating at an alarming rate. At 08:00 this morning I arrived at the hospital’s I.T Department to collect a laptop. I have never, ever, used a laptop before.
