I confess – I really, really enjoy these warm, sunny spring days, driving my new-to-me convertible with the top down. 🙂 “And she’ll have fun fun fun!”
Let me add that I’m really enjoying being ABLE to commute again. Whereas I love the option to work from home and skip the commute, NOT having the option and HAVING to work from home can get tiresome. I missed the camaraderie of the office and the change of scenery. I still don’t enjoy the traffic congestion, but I’m so happy that I can drive again. Even if it’s NOT in the convertible! 🙂
Observing the car ahead of me at the light…..
If you are going to drive a Maserati, WHY would you settle for a sedan instead of driving the convertible????

reflections on life
I’ve been reading. A lot. It’s a great way to escape. I love murder mysteries. For the most part, they get resolved at the end of the book. Nice, neat, resolved, known. OVER. Murder mysteries are usually VERY satisfying.
Even better – finding a NEW AUTHOR!!!! This author has been about for years – won awards, published many books. But Ann Cleeves is new to me. I’ve been reading her Shetland series. And it gets EVEN BETTER. Besides a new author who writes great stories and has many books I’ve not yet read….. I’m learning new words!!! I have had to look up soooooo many words. The Shetland series is set in Shetland, Scotland. Other than Shetland ponies I’d never heard of Shetland and its isles. Most of the words I’ve had to look up are Scottish-isms. But there have been one or two I’ve checked to make sure I knew both the connotation and denotation. There are many more than I list here, but these were among the first to spark my curiosity and excitement: pelagic, maroon, peerie, soothmoother, broch, kirk. I know that there were more – foods and birds and customs (Up Helly Aa).
I’ve only read 2 of the 4 Shetland seasons. 🙂 Still 2 seasons to go!
