Well, my first day as a woman of leisure was anything but leisure. I got up early and went to the gym and after that it was pretty much a day spent running around. My mom and I visited some family friends and then ran errands. I expect that the next few days will be much of the same as we are taking a short trip to Monterrey and we need to get ready for it. The trip should be fun but at the same time I will be anxious to get back to start my projects.
I did manage to get some reading done today, mainly catching up on my magazines, and I finished The Dirty Duck by Martha Grimes. I really like the Richard Jury series and look forward to reading more. The Dirty Duck is the fourth one and I believe she’s up to 20 books now. Lots of crime-solving ahead.
Tonight I’m starting a new book, The Spanish Bow by Andromeda Romano-Lax. First sentence, “I was almost born happy.” Sounds intriguing doesn’t it? Of course I’ll let you know how it goes.
