Hello from Florida. We're still in the throes of moving, but at least I'm reading again. After a month of not being able to concentrate on anything, I have an ebook in progress on my kindle and an audiobook in progress on my phone. More about those below, but first an update on the move...
We spent much of August and September organizing our possessions, paring down to a bare minimum (furniture, books, clothes, and various other "treasures" accumulated over thirty years) and packing. It was difficult, to say the least, but also strangely liberating.
Last Monday the movers arrived. They collected our remaining belongings, loaded them into huge containers, and if all goes as planned, the containers will land at a storage facility in Naples soon.
The BIG news is that we also found a house here on Sanibel! We're on track to close on the new place later this month. In the meantime, we're living in what has been our winter home for the past five or six years and I finally have a little time to read again... at least until renovations (on the new house) begin!

My daughter and sister both recommended this "sister story" as a quick, summer read... and since I missed summer reading this year, that's exactly what I want. At the 25% mark, I don't think they've steered me wrong.

My daily beach walks have resumed... and I love spending that time with an audiobook. My current listen provides a behind the scenes look at a therapist's world. Four hours in and this book is a winner!
Finally, a question...
After eleven years, it may be time to change the name of this blog. Lakeside Musing no longer applies... would a simple switch to Gulfside Musing be confusing? Would you still "recognize" me?
I'm looking forward to visiting blogs and catching up with everyone this week.
