Once we calmed down from all of our beachy thoughts...and once the kitties got over being outraged about being left with a sitter...we had a relaxing Sunday! We do both have Bethany Beach cams on our iPads so we can dream about the ocean and watch the ocean and contemplate life near an ocean. Our latest thought about our situation is that we still continue prepping to sell here. If we decided to buy in Bethany Beach it would not be a house we would live in full time and it wouldn't be ready until late late late fall anyway.
We are proud of this almost decision.
It gives us wiggle room.
We thrive on wiggle room.
Since I have Den hooked on Columbo,too...seriously in all of his rain coated cigar ash dripping glory...we had Columbo on in the background while we both read papers and iPads and books. Den is loving Sweetbitter. I love it when we both have a book in front of us! I just love it.
I finished this. It's the first in a trilogy and really creepily good. It's a private boys' school and secret societies mixed in with other scary stuff. I can't think of a book that this reminds me of...it is quite unique! How's that for a proper review?
Reading this right now...I just started it so I will know more about it tomorrow.
New books from Amazon and Edelweiss and NetGalley and their awesome publishers...
