When Silence Isn't Golden

I noticed in the comments on my last post that Dorte figured I must be feeling better because I was blogging more. Well, she's right. I am at long last well, but now life is getting in the way of my reading and blogging. We just returned from a quick trip to Philadelphia to see Dave's neurologist and now life is extremely busy until next Monday so I probably won't be blogging until next Tuesday.

I've been reading Brunswick Gardens, a Charlotte and Thomas Pitt mystery by Anne Perry. It's very good and I'm enjoying it although I must say it's slow going. The story is dragging as the investigation into a young woman's murder progresses like molasses in January. The saving grace is that the characters are fascinating and well depicted, and Perry has made an issue in this one of the fact that women were second class citizens in England in the 19th century. Not that things were different here of course. The fact that Charlotte's brother-in-law (was married to her late sister) is involved causes strife between this happy couple and adds interest. Apparently Charlotte had been more than half in love with him herself.

This short post is just to let you know I'm here, I'm well, and I will return with a more interesting post next week. Meanwhile, I have ironing to do today without fail, tax stuff to put together for our accountant, and lots of other lovely chores, while it snows outside although it's supposed to change to rain.
