MAR 5 : 64/365


Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience:  this is the ideal life.

– Mark Twain

It’s been one of those Mondays.  And while any Monday can be rough, it seems that a Monday following a vacation tends to be particularly rough, and today was one of those after-vacation-kind-of-Mondays.

Anxious to wind down after a long day, I enjoyed a long hot shower after dinner, then curled up on the couch with a warm blanket, my snuggly pup and the book I’m reading, A Man called Ove.  Upon opening my book I noticed the title of the next chapter was a ‘A Man Called Ove and a Whiskey’, so I decided to pour myself a glass of whiskey as well… after all, I’m a firm believer in diving 100% into a storyline.

So with a blanket on my lap, dog by my side, a good book in hand & a whiskey on the rocks, I finally felt ready to let my mind relax as I settled in for the night.

That’s when the first line of the next chapter caught my eye:

‘It is difficult to admit one is wrong.  Particularly when one has been wrong for a very long time.”

How’s that for a little food for thought?  Seems my Monday isn’t over yet….

    1. I’m loving this book and will be sad to see it end… as is the case with any good story! Thanks for sharing the warm thoughts. 😊
