I’m sorry if I’ve been a bit M.I.A. lately but I’ve been sick (AGAIN) with one thing after another: RA flare-up, upper respiratory infection, sinus infection, cold, severe headaches. I’m still here though! And I think and hope that I’ve finally turned a corner with feeling better.

Hope you’re doing well and that you have a great weekend!


Paper, Please!


“A room without books is like a body without a soul.” 
― Marcus Tullius Cicero

Reading is a form of therapy and self-care for me, I think. I love it. I love books. I love talking and writing and sharing about books. If you do too, please join me and follow my new Instagram page at @biblioange! I hope you will and I can’t wait to find out what you’re reading. :)

So Long, Sandals


I practically live in Birkenstocks, especially after discovering that they’re actually comfortable for my painful and swollen feet and ankles. So, now that winter is quickly approaching, the “sandal season” is near its end. No! I’m not ready yet! I’m not ready to give up comfortable wide soles and feet free from the oppressive restraints of regular shoes. But what can I do? The snow will soon fly and I’ll have to say goodbye.

So long, sandals. I’ll miss you.
