I know I'm a big baby and there's nothing that can be done about it so there's no sense whining - however - the cold wet weather is starting to get me into a funk. We're looking forward to some warm sunny weather so our flower boxes in the front of the store can get planted (and survive). Although this is great weather for curling up with a hot beverage and a good book (which I highly recommend to all of you) that would require us being closed and therefore not on my list of things I'll be doing today.
I just finished a great curl-up-on-the-couch read -
Belong to Me by Marisa de los Santos.
From the publisher - A devoted city dweller, Cornelia Brown surprised no one more than herself when she was gripped by the sudden, inescapable desire to leave urban life behind and head for an idyllic suburb. Perfectly manicured, impeccably dressed, and possessing impossible standards, Piper is the embodiment of everything Cornelia feared she would find in suburbia. A saving grace soon appears in the form of Lake. Over a shared love of literature and old movies, Cornelia develops an instant bond with this warm yet elusive woman who has also recently arrived in town. As their individual stories unfold, the women become entangled in a web of trust, betrayal, love, and loss that challenges them in ways they never imagined, and that ultimately teaches them what it means for one human being to belong to another.
