First Chapter First Paragraph Into Tuesday

Every Tuesday, Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea posts the first paragraph or maybe two of her current read. Anyone can join in. Go to Diane's website for the image and share the first paragraph (or2) of the current book you are reading.

Last night, I started reading by Paulita Kincer. The first chapter and first paragraph follows:

"The quiet of the house mocked me as I rummaged through the Sunday paper looking for the travel pages. I ignored the meticulously folded "Help Wanted" section of the the newspaper and the yellow highlighter that my husband had placed on the counter to remind me that I'd been unemployed for two months and needed to find a job - soon. The ring of the kitchen phone saved me from isolation and from a job search as the thick accent of my aunt came across the crackly line inviting me to move to France. "

So, what would you do?  Would you continue?  I did, and am enjoying the story so far. Paulita is a fellow blogger and I for one will support as many of our fellow bloggers as I can, as they follow their passion of writing.

Schools had another snow day in our community yesterday. We probably had 6-8 inches on our deck when we woke up. But it melted a lot yesterday, and though there are more snow showers predicted this evening and some tomorrow, it is supposed to be 75 by Saturday. We should have sloppy roads and wet yards, but maybe just maybe Spring is around the corner.  Keep your fingers crossed!!

Until next time,
Stay Busy and Stay Happy
