I had not intended for a week to go by before checking the blog but....here it is Thursday again! Quick update from this part of world, 24 degrees this morning near Havana, Florida. Wind chill to make it feel 17 F. My friend in Alaska texted me to say we were 9 degrees colder this morning than it was in Eagle River Alaska. Yikes!
The night sky around 6:15 in Havana Florida. We had stepped out of Oscar's Pizza to walk Aja a bit before the pizza was ready. Takeaway and movie night organized before the rain arrived. This photo doesn't do it justice, the clouds were silky midnight blue and there was orange just above the treeline.
I will, perhaps, sit for you if you give me cheese. This one is loving the cold, cold weather. She walks so fast and shows such joy in her eyes when it's bitter cold. I'm sure it's tougher on a dog with a double coat in the hot summers we have. But it's her time of year now. We get back from a walk after battling a biting wind and she still runs to the back door to get back out. Crazy.
Speaking of cold - it snowed again in Tylertown Mississippi!
What a beautiful sight, this pasture covered with snow. It would be so nice to enjoy a coffee with Aunt Ellen and our cousins, looking out at this scene. Much thanks to Lee Ellen for sending the photos.
On the bookish front, I started the next book in the Frieda Klein series, Tuesday's Gone. Good start to it, I can tell I will read all in the series. Also just read that a follow up book to Silent Sunday will be published so I'm stoked about that. It's called The Day of the Dead and will be out in July of 2018. Maybe I will be all caught up by then and read the other books on my Kindle.
Doug just finished Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness and has Tana French and Andy Weir books on hold. Has anyone read Artemis by Weir? I am looking forward to that too.
That's about it for now. It's been too cold to ride but I have been making lots of soup and bread. Heats the kitchen and it's good homemade food. Hope all is well in your world. I hope to be back before next Thursday :-)
