A Daybook Page In May

From my window - rain drizzles down the window pane.  Looking further, the woods behind us are a lush green.

I am reading - Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie.  Before that I was reading Sleeping Murder by the same author.  Before that I read Claws and Effect by Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie Brown, a Mrs.Murphy Mystery.  Mrs Murphy is a striped tiger cat.  These are very good books despite a cat being one of the main characters. This is the second book I've read of the series.  Before that I read The Distant Hours by Kate Morton which I really whole heartedly recommend.  Distant Hours is a modern Gothic, Victorian novel set in the 1990's - so modern times.  The author has written another book, titled something like the Secret Garden or the Hidden Garden.  I plan to find that book also and read it!

I am grateful - as always for my family.  I pray that God blesses them for everyday of their lives!

I am angry - that I have a beautiful flower garden in my front yard that the deer find absolutely delicious!! They come in the early morning, and when their indelicate chomping wakes up my daughter and she yells at them, they don't leave!  Humans hold absolutely no terror to them, and my flower garden has some ragged leaves and stems without flowers!!!

I can hear - snoring from our 8 year old Lab Louis, who is fast asleep on the floor near me.

I can smell - nothing!  No scented candles, no air freshener, no doggie farts.  Sometimes nothing is good!

My mom had a full collection of Agatha Christie. I think I read a couple when I was a teenager, I don't remember their titles... but I remember my dad use to give me $10 for every book I read :) The first book I read was "Heart" from Edmondo de Amicis. The book is written in a form of a diary where Enrico narrates his school experiences in Turin, Italy. My father gave me the book as a present when I turned 10 years old.
Why don't you put something in your garden to scare the deer? Last summer I went to my friend’s house and she had something that scared them away, she told me it worked. I am going to ask her and let you know but promise me you won't miss them. I have the feeling you might just like you miss your doggie’s farts!!
I also have a family I am grateful for. We have a new member who is going to be born on September… We’ll find out if it is a boy or a girl on May 12th. My daugher Bianca wantas a baby sister… let see! Julie
