Monday Update: Columbus Day Weekend
Happy Monday, friends. Are you enjoying a long holiday weekend? After a quick trip to New York City on an apartment hunting adventure (for our daughters), we are back home. Unfortunately, the deal fell through and it appears Daughter #1 will stay put for another 6 months until Twin A officially joins her. We still had a great time in the city... a walk in Central Park, an art galley, delicious dinners, and the best doughnuts ever.
It has been all Trollope, all the time this week. After listening on my morning walks, I really wanted to continue reading The Small House at Allington on my kindle... and so I did. I did not realize the book was so long (I'm on page 473 of 776) and may need another week to finish. Trollope continues to enchant me.
In the meantime, I have decided to wait on Fates and Furies. It seems like it will be an intense reading experience and I don't want to lessen its impact by dividing my attention. The book is due in a few days, so I will return it to the library and put my name back on the hold list.
I'm still hoping to squeeze Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman in before the end of the month though.
