I don’t ever remember it raining so much at one time. It’s been at least four days now of straight rain.
I just dropped Charlie off at acupuncture. It’s the one thing I decided I would do whether I felt like it or not. I’m kind of walking like a stooped over old lady. I will pick him up soon.
Then I’m ordering groceries and staying in.
Last night I couldn’t sleep in bed so I slept in my chair. Charlie was not happy and barked at times. But I just piled up soft blankets for him on the couch to keep him happy.
What I’m Currently Reading:
I’m now reading “Moonlight Child” by Karen McQuestion.
A woman walks out her back door to see the lunar eclipse. But she sees something odd at the house behind hers. It’s a little girl washing dishes at the sink.
But it’s so late, Sharon thinks. Why would a child that young be washing dishes? And she didn’t think the Flemings had a young child. Just a teenage boy.
Her daughter Amy, an attorney and child advocate, calls and asks Sharon if she’ll take a former foster child in. Sharon thinks: Well, I’ve got the room and I’m retired. Why not?
Sharon and Niki get on quite nicely. Niki has never had a grandmother. Or much of a mother for that matter. It’s nice to have someone worry about her and be so kind.
Together they watch the goings-on at night at the Flemings house. Both think something unusual is going on. When it’s dark they watch through binoculars to see what’s happening there. It’s certainly suspicious.
As things progress, they decide to call social services. But that does not result in swift action. So the two decide to investigate on their own.
This book moves along and keeps you reading.
