|A touch of snow around here|
Today I'm feeling a little bit better, but it wasn't more than a few weeks ago that I got sick with the norovirus, and believe me, everybody around me knows how much I don't like being sick. I'm a terrible patient, but my dear partner has been making me tea and crumpets (Crumpets? What the heck are those anyway?) and I've got a huge 600-page book to read. Unfortunately, it will be gone before the day is over.
My sister introduced me to David Baldacci, who writes the kind of book that, once you get hooked, you cannot put down. Just what I needed for today. I am reading Absolute Power, a 1996 thriller that was made into a Clint Eastwood movie the next year. Maybe that's what I should do once I finish with it: watch the movie. Anyway, I'm on the upside of being down and out. I hate colds, especially when it's cold out.
