A Good Read

   I am reading a riveting book today, "Educated" by Tara Westover. It's a memoir of an unbelievably hard childhood, in fact, parts I had to skip over, it was so gruesome! Nevertheless, I highly recommend it.

   The cats have gone back home. I picked up their "parents" (my son and DIL) from the airport this afternoon, we returned to my place, and got the cats and all their paraphernalia packed up and loaded in their car. Not sorry to see them go (pets are a lot of work) but I will miss them greeting me each time I arrived home.

    Scary thing on the highway coming home from the airport - I was nearly side-swiped by a humongous tractor-trailer which decided to change lanes and obviously didn't see me. Luckily there was a paved shoulder for me to escape on to until he was past but I was quite shaken. All this at 100 kpm!

   Colder today after yesterday's mild temperatures but still no snow. I plan to binge-watch my newest DVD of "Line of Duty". It's a great series!

  1. Oh Chris that is very scary - tractor trailers drive way too fast these days & I don't believe their training is very good - I'll say no more. Glad you are safe. I love how my fur girls greet me when I come home & then the play that goes on to let me know how much they missed me. Happy New Year - wishing you a wonderful healthy, joyful year. ...

  2. I loved that book, it was one of the best I read this year! You should read Kristin Hannah's The Great Alone, that one is even better! Happy New Year!

    1. Hi Debbie, I've read "The Great Alone" and it certainly has a related theme. We are discussing it at my book club next week.
