Welcome to my weekly update for March 28, 2021!
My husband and I met his parents at a park for a picnic last Monday. Everyone except me is fully vaccinated and the park was largely empty so it felt pretty safe. It was nice to see them and catch up! We haven’t seen them since Christmas 2019.
I liked the clouds and the color reflected from the sunrise in this picture, taken on my morning walk on Siesta Key.

It’s time to start thinking about the books I want to read for my April challenges. Any suggestions for books set on trains other than Murder on the Orient Express? Nothing against Agatha Christie, but I read that book years and years ago.
