I hate Mary Higgins Clark.

Last night I started reading her latest book, The Shadow of your Smile. I stopped only beause I was getting tired. This morning I thought I'd read a little while having breakfast. BIG MISTAKE. I spent the rest of the day reading.

I should have known better. I've read her books before and I get so into them that I truly can't put them down.

I started the day with good intentions. I was going to walk, then put the meat I bought yesterday in the freezer, freeze some blueberries and strawberries that I also bought. I had bananas ripening on the counter, just begging to be baked into banana bread. There was laundry and ironing just waiting for me.

Alas, nothing got done. I spent the entire day reading. I finished the book. I wonder how many other do-nothing days Mary Higgins Clark has caused.

Now you can see why I say that I hate her. I mean that in a very loving way. I wonder when her next book will be available.

I'll look her up for an audio book for our next trip. I'm glad you treated yourself. The work will be around for another time.
