Keeping Busy and Educating MYSELF

Times are tough and I hope and pray that all of you are safe.  My daughter lives in NY and we assume she has it: cough, slight fever, achy and no taste or smell for two weeks now.  She's feeling fine now.  It's a scary time out there and I need distractions from the news.

How are you keeping busy?

Here are 3 things I highly recommend right now:

1. Free Online Class at YALE UNIVERSITY (or any IVY League School!)

Yep!  That's right!  ALL Ivy League Schools are offering FREE classes right now.  But there is one in particular that gets such amazing reviews.  I just signed up.  So did my daughter. It's called The Science of Well-Being.  It is a newish class and has proven already to be the most popular is Yale's history.  (My daughter just texted she completed Week 1 and says it is a MUST-DO!)

2. Reading ADULT books.  

No picture books for me!  Honestly, I was such a huge reader but ever since I've become a children's author, it seems that I only read kid books these days.  I read them all day long at school but also read at home WAY too much.  My friend just sent me this book which I am starting today:

It was such a treat to get this surprise gift in the mail last week.  Patti bought it for my week-long hospital stay that was JUST CANCELLED at Hospital of Special Surgery.  Oh, my.  This delay will be a long one but I get it and will deal with it.  Just a bit of a bummer because I need 4 months in between first two leg surgeries so it obviously pushes everything back.  Praying hard for all health workers.  Praying for their much-needed supplies and their health.

AUDIBLE has been allowing us to download THREE free audiobooks, too.  Check them out!

3. Watching Tiger King on Netflix  (It is CRAZY!)

My son and I watched together.  It gets crazier and crazier by the episode.  You will go through a range of emotions watching it.  No doubt.  If you watched and want to share thoughts, leave a comment.

Stay safe.
