No thirteen for me, today. Instead, just an anecdote and some other chatter.
I completely forgot to mention yesterday's best moment! I rushed to move a tipsy planter and some other items I thought were likely to be damaged if an approaching storm produced the seventy mile-per-hour winds predicted. As I stepped inside, our black cat, Spooky, ran out the door. "Oh, no you don't!" I said, and swooped her up to keep her out of the imminent downpour. I opened the back door, once again, and Sunshine ran out. So, without putting Spooky down, I ran and snatched up the other cat. I had a black cat under my left arm, an orange cat in my right and the black cat was hissing at the orange but we made it inside and two minutes later the sky cracked open and let loose a deluge. Spooky jumped up on the windowsill and I said, "See! See! That's why I brought you back inside!" She gave me the blinky look of contentment. More than likely, the cat already had forgotten she wanted to go outside just minutes before, but who knows.
Still reading verrrrry slowly. It will probably be a few days before I post a book review.
Just arrived from Paperback Swap:
A House in Corfu by Emma Tennant
Fortune's Children: The Fall of the House of Vanderbilt by Arthur T. Vanderbilt II
The Painted Veil by W. Somerset Maugham
Some of my books are also going out the door.
Kind of comforting knowing:
The youngest is taking lifesaving. You know, just in case one of us someday clutches his or her chest and collapses or starts to drown. Again, you never know.
I am migraine-free, today!
Thought you'd like to know and thanks to those who posted well wishes!!
