A good read

No sewing done this afternoon! After another frosty, sparkly morning it was so warm and sunny outside - 20degrees C on our terrasse that I just had to sit in the sun and enjoy it. Sorry I have not taken any pictures!

 So I finished a very good book. Miss Garnet's Angel by Salley Vickers. It is a lovely story about a lady who retires to Venice and it loosely parallells the story of Tobias and The Angel. I loved this book and would recommend it.

Now I am watching yet another beautiful sunrise form outside my window which means we shall have another frosty morning tomorrow.

Have a good week



  1. Well that sounds like a grand way to spend the day! Seeing the sunrise/sunset, especially when it's vibrant, just adds to the day doesn't it? It was -2 this morning here with snow on the ground :-)
    Have a great week,

  2. This is SW France at its wintry best don't you think. I have been tidying up my sewing space and hope to get down to some serious sewing before too long but we have to enjoy the sun too! Have a good week.

  3. Lucky girl! Here, in Montreal, we will have today 15 cm of snow and maybe some ice tonight.

  4. Hello Lin,

    Enjoy your lovely weather. Thanks for the book title too.

    Happy days.

  5. Sounds like a wonderful way to spend the day, Lin :-)

  6. Sounds like you had a lovely afternoon relaxing in the sun. I love reading so I will go the library and check this out after I finish Jackie Colins confessions of a Wildchild. Hope you have lots more afternoons like this. :)
