A wicked storm blew through last week, downing trees and knocking out power to thousands of people both here on the island and on the mainland. Our lights stayed on, so we were lucky in that respect, but the pots on the back patio took a bad hit. A towering red canna lily fell over by the back door, smashing the beautiful blue grazing ball beside it. We had to clean up the glass so Team Sheltie could get outside to do their business. They weren’t thrilled to be out there in the first place. They were much happier when I closed the curtains, lit the fire and curled up on the couch with a book. It’s something I seem to be doing a lot of these days.
Here’s what I’m reading this month:
On the Kindle: That Night by Lisa McManus
Beside the fire: What We Hide by Marthe Jocelyn
