As soon as we got up this morning we noticed that there was far less haze in the air. We had a bit of a shower when we walked around the lake but we were just happy to be able to walk again without worrying about what the smoke was doing to our lungs.
I picked up this book that I requested at the library ( I didn't have to go into the library because you can show your card at the window and one of the librarians brings it out to you.) I was a little disappointed because I thought the stories were true and based on his life but they are not ( although he was a doctor in Ireland and he also practiced in Canada for 31 years.) So far it is easy to read and interesting enough.
This author has also written An Irish Country Christmas and An Irish Country Village so if I enjoy his style I will have more winter reading choices.
In my kitchen... the pears I bought just yesterday were developing brown spots and needed using today so I made some Pear Crisps in ramekins as I usually do.
Of all fruits I think pears are the most likely to get over ripe very quickly.
So it is almost one o'clock now, lunch is done and I'm ready to continue reading Patrick Taylor's fictional tale. Are you having a pleasant day?
Thanks for visiting, GM
