Started reading The Library this morning and since I‘m at work for another 1 hour and 43 minutes -but who‘s counting - I might finish this tonight. A cozy mystery with a character who volunteers in a Library.

Sitting in the doctors office and I just finished this book, which was entertaining btw. But, of course I didn‘t bring another book...I should know better 😆

I live 200 miles north of Panama City Beach. The eye of Hurricane Michael passed just east of us and was still a category 2 hurricane when it came through. We are safe, with no major damage and I am amazed at the photos I‘m seeing of the destruction. Cute granddaughter photo for perspective on how valuable life truly is.

DGRachel So glad you made it through okay! 12mo
