I haven't written much about what I'm doing with my days lately. Probably because I'm not doing much, or the same and more of the same. Went to the post office this morning. Took this picture when I got home because there was a covey of California quail scurrying away as I got out of the car. No luck catching a photo of them, but I'm posting this anyway because the sky was so beautiful today.
This afternoon, I sat on my patio and read a "real" book, Perestroika in Paris, by Jane Smiley, a Christmas gift from Judy. For the past several years now, I read most of my books on my Kindle Fire. It was lovely to sit outside on a January afternoon, in warm sunshine, reading a book. I believe we will get rain and snow, starting tomorrow and continuing on and off for a week or more. We need it badly, so no complaints.
As always, Faith was very interested in what I was doing, so I explained to her that in the book, Perestroika is a horse that has a big adventure in this place called Paris, where she meets up with a dog, a raven, some ducks, a young boy and an old lady.
I haven't done a puzzle since I was a child, but now my friends here in California and several of my blogger friends are doing them, so since it's good at my age to do new things, I ordered one. Feeling insecure about my puzzling abilities, I got one for ages 9+ with 300 pieces. Well, I'm of course more 9x than 9+, but I dove right in and enjoyed it so much that I ordered another one.
As far as my cooking goes, I heated up a frozen pizza yesterday. A pretty good veggie pizza from Walmart, I wasn't sure how it would taste, but it was OK with plenty of those hot pepper flakes on top. I don't eat pizza often, but had two in my freezer. With a nice salad and a glass of cold water, it turned out fine.
Then to bed early, with my beloved little dog, so spoiled, but then she really spoils me too with her perfect behavior, so considerate. I've never had a dog that was as thoughtful as she.
Read for a while and then to sleep.
