aloha friday

Happy Friday my beautiful parkie friends. This weekend I’ve got a couple of books I’ll be enjoying, including If I Can Climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, Why Can't I Brush My Teeth?: Courage, Tenacity & Love Meet Parkinson's Disease by Nan Little. I came across Nan’s site and she has some beautifully written essays. I’m sure I’ll also watch a movie. TCM is having their 31 Days of Oscars showing some great Oscar winning movies every day this month. If you haven’t seen Whatever Happened to Baby Jane with Bette Davis or High Society with Grace Kelly you’re in for a treat.

~ If you or someone you know with PD that has young children, here is a booklet that might be helpful in discussing it with them.

~Two books I just finished and would recommend. What Would Mrs. Astor Do? The Essential Guide to the Manners and Mores of the Gilded Age by Cecelia Tichi & In Pieces by Sally Field. By the way I recently started tracking the books I read two ways. I list them in a small notebook and I also use Goodreads. How do you track them?

~ More book talk. Did you know that you can download ebooks that are out of copyright for free at the Gutenberg Project? There are so many fantastic books! Great for a parkie with time on our hands.

~ If you’re looking for a new eyelash curler this review can help you choose.

~ Great & Fascinating Beauty Advice from Seniors. Love it.

~ I’m going to give these collard wontons a try this weekend. I’ve got broccoli leaves from the garden that I will use in place of the collard greens.

~ Ina Garten just posted her valentines day love song list on Spotify. I’m listening to it as I write this post. If I had a nickel for every time I said how much I love Ina…………….

Have a wonderful weekend and I’d love to hear what’s going on in your world this weekend! xoxo kai
