Mother stood across the room and smiled at us as at two small strangers, and said in a bemused voice that she knew of an old country custom; without an inn nearby and with no spare couch on which a visitor might sleep, she would allow us to bundle. "I see no reason to keep the fire tonight or waste candles." I felt the brush of Nehemiah's chin as he nodded behind me. -- pg 148, Angel and Apostle by Deborah Noyes
QUICK NOTE...Update: 10/10/19
Good news: We're back home! Bad news: It's like Apocalypse Heck Part III.
The one year Hurricane Michael anniversary is already here. Where did the time go...and yet it feels like forever. You don't realize how much you take for granted until it's all gone. I'm grateful my family/fur babies survived, and I know they are just "things", but sadly, in this life, those "things" help us get through every day. So yes, "happy" yet not. Every day is still a struggle...not just for my family, but so many others.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.
