I went on a pretty magnificent vacation to Costa Rica at the beginning of the month. We were gone for almost two weeks! Lots of lazy mornings spent on the beach reading, swimming, lounging. Whereupon I got back and had to jump into a hectic end of the buying season. Four appointments in three days. Whew. I need a vacation.
And then we got a dog. I will try and promise not to blather on about her too much in future, so let me get this out of the way now. She’s a four month old beagle terrier mix we adopted from Canine Commitment in Maine. We named her Lucy.
This is what I’ve been up to for the past month. I’ve read a lot of books too, including a few on dog training. I’ll try and get some of them written up over the weekend. I will say that I finished reading State of Wonder by Ann Patchett yesterday and really enjoyed it. Our Harper sales rep Anne kept recommending it to me. I should just learn to listen to her. I’ve never read Patchett before but perhaps I should go give Bel Canto a go?
