What an absolutely glorious Spring day. The first sunny warm day in several weeks – a warm 18 C. I played hookey from work to enjoy the afternoon with my dog and My One and Only. We strolled along the street browsing in the local shops with all the other happy people enjoying the day. And the best part of the day, the library called to say that the book I had placed a hold over a month ago had arrived. I love it when I get home from work and there’s a message from the library telling me I have a book (or sometimes books) waiting to be picked up. It’s like Christmas morning – you know that you are getting a present but you’re not quite sure what it will be. I spent the rest of the afternoon sitting on my front porch with Abbey and My One and Only reading “A Discovery of Witches” by Deborah Harkness. I can’t think of a better way to spend an afternoon.
