    • January- reread a translated book or a book in which a character speaks more than one language  I haven’t finished it yet, but I’m working on a reread of A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman. It’s taking longer to read because I’m annotating it. 

I’m glad to see I’m at least making progress on most of my goals. There are ones I need to focus on more, but I’m pleased with my progress so far. How are your 2020 goals holding up so far?

  1. You have such a good attitude! I don’t make yearly goals, maybe I should. I am not as structured and organized as you. I have never been a detailed person. I flit from one conquest to the next. It amazes me how you can delve into reading so many books at the same time. You also have a good grip on who you are, what you need to work on. But leave out the word fail. It isn’t a part of your character, or your vocabulary. You are a very progressive person. Measure by inches, not feet. You are an inspirational person.

    1. Thank you so much for this. I don’t think anyone has said so many kind things to me since my husband became unable to speak. As I tell Pepper when she goes out of her way to be kind, This made my heart happy.
