Whew, Thanksgiving even by myself was a lot! LOL! I think I was fighting off some bug because I could barely stay awake much less have any energy but I'm feeling like my old self again...even better!
I also finished a book I've been reading. A memoir of sorts by Alice Marie Carey, an American gal born of Irish parents who reside in New York. The Father is rough, drinks and barely brings in any money but the Mother has a good job with a famous actress/Broadway personality as a housemaid. Alice grows up among these interesting characters and even goes to Ireland with her Mother to visit as a girl. When she grows up and gets on in age, she and her husband decide to fix up an old house in the Irish Countryside. It certainly held my interest but the country parts were the best and I wished they would have fixed up the house themselves but they hired people to do it. She and her husband never had any children and they led an interesting if unconventional life. I was also trying to read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn at the same time but I was getting the characters confused as they both take place about the same time in New York and Alice even mentions the book in her memoir so I had to stop reading the fiction and stick to the non-fiction.
