This was the view from my apartment yesterday. It rained nearly all day, so I stayed in and cleaned, read and relaxed. I love nothing more than staying inside on a rainy day and enjoying the sounds of the rainfall.
I'm reading "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle," which someone on Facebook recommended to me. It's an interesting book but it's also huge, so I may be reading for a while! Still, it's an Oprah book, so it must be good.
I got some somber news from my mom this week: A guy who grew up next door to me died of a heart attack a few weeks ago. He was eight years older than I was, and he went to private school while I went to the nearby public school, so I didn't know him well. But I remember visiting him when I was very young, and given that he was only 50, it's shocking to think of him dead. As an old friend's grandmother always used to say, "You never know!"
