I took a blogging break this weekend to play with my friend Julie, a visitor from The North. We had great fun listening to The Help (terrific recording!) and talking about Olive Kitteridge (which we both adored). Although Julie's very good at prodding my writing along, this time we mostly focused on The Weather. When they cancelled her return flight to Baltimore, I got to keep her for an extra day or two. We shopped, walked in the sunshine, ate, and watched Emma on TV.
(Thanks, Kate and Carl, for the pictures!)
Here's what she escaped.
(Her street in Baltimore County.)
And this is my daughter's street in Bethesda... Had the plow arrived yet? She says not until Monday night. (Actually, this is a nearby street. Hers is still unplowed, deep, undrivable...)
Neither rain, nor sleet, nor... HA!
(No mail for a while, I guess.)At least the sun's shining?
Almost 30 inches? Maybe I'll get Julie until April! Lots of books yet to read and talk about.
(What she's recommending I read next: REMARKABLE CREATURES.
Here's what I'm recommending she read next: the Jackson Brodie trilogy by Kate Atkinson.)
