Since my last update:
I spent last Sunday afternoon on the patio reading The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street by Helene Hanff. It was a thoroughly delightful way to spend a Sunday afternoon. After that I went back to Beach Road by Patterson and De Jonge and finished that one. I’ve started Guilt by Degrees by Marcia Clark. So far her second book in the Rachel Knight series is just as good as the first one. I've also started The Drops of God (vol. 1) which is a manga series about the wine trade. This is my first foray into both graphic novels and manga but based on the first few pages I read last night it's quite enjoyable.
For my audiobook I’m nearing the end of The Ape Who Guards the Balance by Elizabeth Peters. It’s been nice to be back with the Peabody/Emerson clan in Egypt. I have several audiobooks out from the library right now that I’ll be loading onto the iPod so I’ll have plenty to choose from depending on what I’m in the mood for when I finish this one.
Other than books and reading:
It’s been construction week at our house. We had the furnace and air conditioner replaced. Luckily we had three very mild weather days so being without heat or cooling wasn’t too much of a problem other than a couple of cold mornings.
We went wine tasting out at ADEA yesterday.
Almost forgot the gratuitous photo of Abby . . .
Hope you’re having a great weekend.
