Off the Shelf; Or What's New in My Corner of the World 8

Beth Fish ReadsQuick personal update here. You might have noticed that I haven't been posting much and that I haven't been visiting blogs or posting on Instagram or even tweeting. There's a reason for that.

My mother has been having some health issues, and I've been visiting with her and taking over some care-giving duties from my brother. As you can imagine, all my non-work time is focused on family and helping my mom regain her strength and vigor. I have not been reading or reviewing or tending to my blog.

I will have a Weekend Cooking post up on Saturday. I hope next week I can be more active on social media and my blog. At the moment we're taking each day, one at a time.

So, in case you were wondering what happened to me, now you know.

I'm sorry about your Mom's health problems. However, I do understand helping out with parent care. Know that all of you will be in my thoughts and thanks for letting us know. Take care of yourself as well!

I'm so sorry. It is very emotionally draining doing this, and it doesn't leave much energy for anything else.

My best wishes for your mothers recovery Beth.

I'm so sorry to hear your mother is struggling--and so glad you can be with her. Try to take a bit of
care of you in there, as well. All the best hopes for better days ahead.

I’ve been away camping and no signal, just got home. Family comes first and I’m glad you and your brother can be there and help. Hoping your mom sees improvement. Get rest for yourself as well!
