  1. The second book sounds good. You should try Rachel Hawkins “The Wife Upstairs.”

  2. You have reviewed some good books lately. I am keeping them for reference when I go to our local library which will be soon now that I have had both my vaccines and past the two week time. I am feeling so optimistic about life this summer now after listening to the presidents calm speech to America last night. I actually went out today to a restaurant here in NY for the first time since last fall. The owner said his business is just as good as before covid so he didn’t lose any customers and is thinking of keeping hours cut shorter in the future since he likes not working as many himself. When there’s a will, there’s a way as my grandma use to say.

  3. I’ve had squirrels and chipmunks dig in my flower pots and my planters. It got to the point where it was happening daily and they’d leave a mess with muddy little footprints and dirt they’d dug out scattered everywhere. I solved the problem by putting down a piece of weed preventer fabric cut to size around the plants and then covering it with larger size marble stones. They dig everywhere in the yard, it’s noticeable right now with the lawns dormant and frozen, but in the summer I see it as a form of easy and free “aeration.” LOL.

  4. Of late I can’t settle down and read. It’s strange for me because I’ve always been an avid reader but this for sure is one of the strangest years of my life. Pandemics have a way of making things feel strange. I think spring may have come early here in South Carolina since we’ve been enjoying several days in the seventies. March is always unpredictable though. I’ve ordered some seeds and I’m beginning to look at my planters. I’ve had my secretary nd ahoy now so I’m hoping I’ll be able to move about a little more freely in two weeks or so. I did not have any reaction to it so I was thankful for that. We’ve had to take our bird feeders down since salmonella was spreading through the birds and it was spreading through the bird population at feeders. I miss my birds because everyday I would sit and be entertained by them. In two weeks or so we should be able to put them back up. They’ve entertained me so much during this pandemic and I do miss them. My three cats continue to amuse me and I feed a small neutered colony each night. Hopefully we’ll reach herd immunity by this summer. I’m praying most people will accept the vaccine and help us to achieve this. I’ve been so proud of President Biden’s leadership and his willingness to share this vaccine with the world once America has it under control. It’s like the America I once knew as a child is back and I’m 70. Be careful & stay well.

  5. Do you have squirrels near the patio? The hole that is dug seems to be the same as when the squirrels dig around here to retrieve their nuts they have hidden for cold weather. I am terrified of snakes and generally don’t like reptiles to begin with. Both of those books seem very intriguing! Looking forward to seeing what you have up your sleeve for your dining area.
