I just finished this book and it was lovely. I love books that take place in Maine. This one takes place in North Harbor, Maine and has lovely quirky characters, lots of food descriptions, great writing and a cat named Elvis who relaxes by watching Jeopardy every evening. I guess it could be called a cozy mystery but it had lots of substance. I enjoyed it so much that I am reading the first one, too. I most likely will read all of the books in this series. It’s that good!
I want to focus on reading these books this week. I mean actually reading them and not switching to something else. That’s my goal.
It is a relatively calm week as far as chemo issues are concerned. I won’t have another one until the Monday after Thanksgiving. I am learning that the roughest parts of this chemo are within the first two weeks. And they seem to change constantly. The most consistent thing is that I am just not hungry. I have no appetite at all but I try to eat. Sweet things? I can’t handle them…they taste sweeter to me. I crave eggs, apples and pickles…and certain meats…it’s very strange. I also crave this chicken soup that our local Chinese chef makes every day. He took Den into his kitchen and showed him the huge pot that he uses to make his stock. When it’s done it’s delicious. He will serve it with rice or really long noodles! I love the long noodles. The soup is actually restorative for me! Yum!
Some new books…both of these are from Berkeley…
Both of these are from Frontlist…
It’s really cold here today…there was a slight chance of snow!
