Ok…for an area…ours…that usually really does not get much snow…we are set to get our fourth Nor’easter this month…today! In fact…it is happening right now! We are about an hour from NYC…an hour or three from Delaware Beaches, New Jersey Beaches and Maryland’s Eastern Shore…home of blue crabs, crab cakes…the Chesapeake Bay is not far away…and Baltimore, St. Michael’s, Annapolis…practically in my back yard…well not Annapolis but it’s not that far away. If we want to have blue crabs or a crab cake sandwich while watching boats on the water…we head to Chesapeake City in Maryland and that is literally less than an hour away. There isn’t a house in this area that doesn’t keep Old Bay Seasoning on its shelves!
I digress! Sorry! My point is we don’t get tons of snow! But this month we are getting snow…tons of it, too! The joke is on me…sigh! Everything here is closed today. Den stopped at Giant to get half and half and pronounced it a mob scene! He came home without it! It’s Spring! But you would never know it! Those water taxis are in Annapolis…
Plans for today?
Treadmill walking…ugh! We should be walking in the park or at Longwood Gardens. Isn’t it Spring?
Puzzles…it’s a good day for an IPad jigsaw puzzle or two.
Reading! I am reading this…it’s not normally the kind of book I love but I am enjoying it so much. It’s little vignettes or short stories of this house in France and it’s inhabitants…it covers both present and past times and I love the writing! Notice that it is from Little Brown and Company…the publisher who always says no to me!
I love that they are not saying no to me any more!
A century-spanning portrait of the inhabitants of a French village, revealing the deception, despair, love, and longing beneath the calm surface of ordinary lives.
Have a great day!
