A little rain and a nice book

 We've had lots of nice, light rain around here.  I've always liked rain if I was inside and snuggled on the couch with a good book and cup of hot chocolate (says the diabetic).  

Today we did the Buddy walk while a light drizzle fell on us.  There was a time when Buddy would not go out if rain touched his back. But no longer.  That means when the urge hits, we go, and if I'm lucky, there is an umbrella left on the balcony.  

I read a new book yesterday and today titled The Book Charmer by Karen Hawkins.  I love books with book or library in the title.  I was such an avid reader as a child.  Those words warm my heart.  

I think this book would be called Contemporary Fiction.  I don't usually read this type of book. I usually prefer Historical Fiction, Mystery, or Suspense.  The book includes a librarian, a work-it-to-the -bone businesswoman, a wounded child whose mother died and a loved one with Alzheimer's.  When you add it all together and stir it up, you get a feel-good book.  

More later ....

  2. Hey, Barbara! I'm so glad Buddy likes rainy walks now, especially on hot days. I bet it's especially nice for both of you then. Your book sounds interesting!

  5. We had torrential downpours from the remnants of the hurricane but gentler showers recently brought out our umbrellas too. A day without wind so we can use the umbrellas has been rare.

  6. Rain, a good book and a dog who doesn't mind a little water sounds pretty good. I can't get Callie out the door if the dew is heavy:)
