FOR TODAY, March 7, 2017
Outside my window ...
The days are getting noticeably longer. The birds are singing. The sun is up. Its not raining. Its a bit warmer. Spring is springing.
I am thinking ...
I was having the most horrible dream for the last two hours or so I was in bed this morning. And it has stuck with me. I am having a hard time shaking it. I hope I can get it out of my head soon. Why does that happen?? There was a man who was stalking me, and I could not get away from him. And he was a dangerous man. The last time I woke up he had a bicycle chain around my husbands throat while my son watched and I was screaming to all the people in the school yard, to help us, please help us. Horrible. Very vivid.

I am Reading ...
But Tyler Caskey is barely surviving himself. His cold, church-assigned home is colder still since Lauren's death, and he struggles to find the right words for his sermons; struggles to be a leader to his congregation when he himself is lost.
When Katherine's schoolteacher calls to discuss his daughter's anti-social behaviour, it sparks a chain of events that begins to tear down Tyler's defences. The small-town rumour-mill has much to make of Katherine's odd behaviour, and even more to say about Tyler's relationship with his housekeeper, Connie Hatch. And in Tyler's darkest hour, a startling discovery will test his congregation's humanity - and his own will to endure the kinds of trials that sooner or later test us all.
From the Orange Prize-shortlisted author of Amy & Isabelle, this is a startlingly beautiful novel about love and abandonment, faith and hypocrisy; and the peril of family secrets…
This is very good! I am really enjoying it.
I am looking forward to ...
Going teaching with the Missionary Sisters this afternoon while Todd is at his treatment. Its only a few doors down from where I live, so walking there won't be a problem.
