It is raining. I see it drip-dripping off the gazebo roof as I sit here on the couch.
A pupster is on either side of me snoozing. Same old, same old.
Like the sign above, the rain brings me tranquility and peace of mind on an overcast rainy day mid-March.
I'm reading a Faye Kellerman book. For some reason I've never been able to get into her books. But since I recently finished one of her husband's books, and never thought I liked his books either, I thought I'd give her book a try.
Contrary to my earlier beliefs, I loved them both. I am reading through her book anticipating what will happen next.
Isn't it funny how we pick up a book and just can't get into the plot at all? And then somewhere down the road, we pick it up again, and we're enthralled by it?
In between those two books, I read this one...
And I truly enjoyed it as well. A young woman in her thirties, living in a college town in Texas, finds herself falling in love with the college football coach, who just happens to be her best friend's father.
Yeah, it gets dicey, since she almost grew up in their home.
And before that I read this one...
This Iris Johansen book had been on my book shelf for a few years. I guess I couldn't get into it either.
But on this second attempt, I loved it.
I guess it really depends on your mood, what you feel like reading.
Every night I settle into bed and read for hours. It is such a pleasant way to prepare for sleep. I've learned that being on the computer or watching TV keeps me awake longer.
I have an essential oil diffuser in the bedroom. And every night just before bed, I add water and lavender essential oil drops to it because the fine mist keeps Abi from coughing all night.
Lavender, as you probably know, is a sleep-inducing herb. And it has such a pleasant and lovely scent.
So what is your before bedtime routine?
