Today it is 53 degrees and sunny — and of course I am at the office. Drat. Tomorrow we are supposed to have a winter blast. I am really hoping that most of it goes around us. We shall see.
I finished The Historian and dropped it off to my mother last night. I needed to get gas for the car, so I decided just to let the pug ride along with me. I didn’t put her harness on that she wears to the park — just clipped the leash to her collar. When I got to the gas station — on the corner of two busy streets, of course — she just hopped out of the car behind me. I was so startled by that and it took me a minute to realize that she was heading for the street. I think she just assumed I had driven her somewhere to walk. I grabbed the leash that was dragging behind her and made her get back into the car. Scared me! It would have been nice to go for a quick walk, but it doesn’t stay light late enough yet. Maybe in another 3 weeks or so.
I picked up the new Anne Tyler book, Noah’s Compass, at the library. I didn’t care for the beginning, but I am still reading it and it is getting better as I go along.
Tonight I must get some things done around the house. I hope I can stay motivated.
