We worked outside yesterday until, as predicted the rain and wind came at 2pm and forced us indoors. I wasn’t too unhappy to come inside. I had a book ready for me beside the fireplace. Years ago I read Michael Connellys series starring Detective Bosch. I found out this week there are six I haven’t read. I sat down to read my third (The Reversal) yesterday at 2 pm. At ten, I finished.. It was great.. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough… A perfect day despite the horrid weather which had appeared.
More than one of our friends are (is? ) stuck on the other side of the water today unable to get across the white tipped waves. Our intrepid friend MB headed out but with weather like this everyone makes their own decisions based on comfort level and boat size. No one makes the decision for you….E and I are quite happy we don’t have to decide today. It is a great day for another visit with Detective Bosch.
All of you islanders who have chosen to spend these winter months in warmer climates can quite rightfully congratulate your decision. Cause it is one giant yucky out here. Even the birds are hiding.
I hesitate to start the next book (The Drop) . Surely there is something productive I could be doing. I could write Christmas cards but I have decided not to send any this year. I could make Christmas cookies but we would just eat them. I could decorate the house but what is the point, we are leaving on the 23rd. Gosh, I sound kinda Grinchy.
Ok, I have a plan that can incorporate the festive season to my indoor island day. I will read my book while drinking a
rum and eggnog
