Here we go. Winter storm approaching. It might be more nasty than anything we faced in February. Lots of ice. Lots of sleet. With a nice snowy topping to hide it all.
In other news, I am on day 3 of the raging head cold. I feel better this morning, but still have some sniffles and a bit of a wonky feeling. It will pass. Lots of honey lemon tea, lots and lots of it, has been consumed.
Other things consumed, books. I read a few books while I was trapped in bed Sunday and Monday. In no particular order:
As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust by Alan Bradley: Flavia is at it again. This time in Canada at a boarding school. I adore this series. Great writing. Great characters. Great plots.
Miss Buncle's Book by DL Stevenson: This was a freebie on Nook a while back and I snatched it up. It was delightful. This series was written back in the 1930s and has been republished. Small town life in pre-war England. Lots of hilarious characters.
Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear: Another series book, and another mystery to boot. Set in post WWI England, Maisie has risen from a housemaid to a private investigator. Well written and the setting/time is captivating. Downton Abbey fans would enjoy this.
A Touch of Midnight by Lara Adrian: supernatural trashy romance. It was okay.
So, my long weekend had a decidedly English flavor as three of the four books were set in England or featured English characters! It made dealing with a head cold much easier, and almost pain free.
