Hello, friends! How is your day? I had a rough night. I was sound asleep when suddenly I woke up with a claw in my foot. Jack was there in bed with me and I must have moved. He thought I was playing and pounced. Ouch! Daddy Joe woke up and evicted him from the room.
I had to get up early today anyway and be on time at the doctor's office to get my first Covid shot. They had that place down to a science. There were three people assigned to every 15 minutes. I was in the 9:00 group. We went in and two people were sent to an office and I was told to stay in the waiting room. Diane, the Medical Assistant, gave me my shot. Barbara, the CNP, and Dr. Kimmel each gave a shot to another patient. Then we sat there for 15 minutes. As we were leaving another group of three were coming in. We came in the front and left by the back door to keep things moving. Now I go back on the 30th for my second shot. So far I have had no side effects so that is good.
On Sunday Joe had to run to 7-11 before church. When he came out, he had a beautiful bouquet of flowers for me. He said it was a "just because" gift. He's always so sweet to me.
Today I want to tell you about a book that I have just finished reading: The Nantucket Inn by Pamela Kelley.
Amazon describes it this way:
Lisa Hodges needs to make a decision fast. Thanks to her dead husband's gambling addiction, their savings is almost gone. In her early fifties with a large, waterfront home on Nantucket to support, Lisa hasn't worked in over thirty years, has no in-demand skills and is virtually unemployable.
Her only options are to sell the house and move off-island, or, she could use her cooking and entertaining skills and turn her home into a bed and breakfast. She desperately needs it to succeed because she has four grown children with problems of their own and wants to stay close to them.
Her oldest daughter, Kate, has a fabulous career in Boston--working as a writer for a popular fashion magazine and engaged to a dangerously handsome, photographer, who none of them have met.
Kate's twin, local artist, Kristen, has been reasonably content with her on-again off-again relationship with an older, separated businessman.
Her son, Chase, runs his own construction business and is carefree, happily dating here and there but nothing serious.
Youngest daughter, Abby, is happily married to her high school sweetheart, and they've been trying to have a baby. But it hasn't happened yet, and Abby wonders if it's a sign that maybe their marriage isn't as perfect as everyone thinks.
The only reason I bought this book was because it came up on my Kindle as a book I might like and it was only $3.99. I thought I'd give it a try. Well, I couldn't put the book down. It was a quick read and I was reading it all the time. It's what I call a bit of fluff. Not a lot of your attention needs to go into this book. But that was just what I needed. And the characters are developed enough to keep your interest. It has been a long time since I read a book so quickly. I've already bought book 2 in this 6 book series.
I realize this book is not for everyone. But if you want a quick and easy read with a good story, give it a try.
And now I am going to go get something to eat. I don't know why I am so hungry today but I am. Hmm... maybe I'll do a "What's for Dinner?" post next. I haven't done one of those in awhile either.
Have a good day everyone. I'll have to go blog reading after I eat.
