Dark and Dreary

Today is one of those dark and dreary Northwest days…rainy and the deepest gray you can imagine. But I’m spending time today with two new delightful purchases from the bookstore: The Good Husband of Zebra Drive (just released yesterday), and a new CD by Rosie Thomas, “These Friends of Mine.” It’s going to be a delightful day!

    It’s a beautiful place to live and there are some great places to retire here. A close friend is retiring in 3 months and moving to Port Townsend…a lovely town. Despite it being dark and dreary at times, it’s a great place for readers and writers.

    Jenclair and Karen, the book and the music were the perfect antidote to the rain, and by the afternoon the sun finally came out. What a warm and gentle book to read on a rainy day and during a week of national sadness.

    Thanks so much for commenting! I’ve tried to get blogs going before without any success, and so every little comment I get makes me very happy. ^_^

    Just looking at the cover could cheer up a dark day! I’d love a wall hanging of all those covers. I think they are just beautiful. I’m going to check out Rosie Thomas. I’ve never heard of her, and I love meeting new musicians.

    Sounds like the perfect way to spend a rainy day. I’ll be interested to hear how you like the book–I’ve never read any of the series, but so many people I know love them.

    I may have to retire in the northwest, too, by the way…

    Ashlee, I was thrilled when people started leaving comments when I first started my blog, too. It’s a very warm and welcoming group of people.

    Nan, I love the covers, and agree that they’d make beautiful wall hangings. Let me know how you like Rosie Thomas. She was brand new to me, too. I’m always interested in new Seattle groups/musicians.

    Gentle Reader, I loved this book and the whole series. It’s full of gentle fun that warms your heart.
