It is raining. I see it drip-dripping off the gazebo roof as I sit here on the couch. A pupster is on either side of me snoozing.
Same old, same old around here.
The rain brings me tranquility and peace of mind on an overcast rainy day in mid-March, and makes me want to read.
I’m currently reading a Faye Kellerman book.
For some reason I’ve never been able to get into her books. But since I recently finished one of her husband’s books, I thought I’d give her book a try.
Contrary to my earlier beliefs, I loved them both. I am reading through her book anticipating what will happen next.
Isn’t it funny how we pick up a book and just can’t get into the plot at all? And then somewhere down the road, we pick it up again, and we’re enthralled by it?
In between those two books, I read this one.
The One & Only:
I truly enjoyed it as well. It’s about a young woman in her thirties, living in a college town in Texas. She finds herself falling in love with the college football coach, who just happens to be her best friend’s father.
Yeah, it gets dicey, since she almost grew up in their home.
And before that book, I read this one.
Sleep No More:
This Iris Johansen book had been on my bookshelf for a few years. I guess I couldn’t get into it either.
But on this second attempt, I loved it.
I guess it really depends on your mood and what you feel like reading.
Settling Into Bed To Read:
Every night I settle into bed and read for hours. It is such a pleasant way to prepare for sleep. I’ve learned that being on the computer or watching TV keeps me awake longer.
I have an essential oil diffuser in the bedroom. And every night just before bed, I add drops to it because the fine mist keeps Abi from coughing all night.
Lavender, as you probably know, is a sleep-inducing herb. And it has such a pleasant and lovely scent.
