Good morning, everyone. Though cold we have sun today which makes it nice. It is amazing how a bit of sun makes me feel so much better. That system that just left with the rain is supposed to back in some clouds on Wednesday. I covered up my little peppers last evening--just in case, since so many of them are still a bit small. I hoped the temps would not fall low enough to threaten the tomatoes and other plants and it didn't. Everything is doing well.

I did fritter well yesterday, Kay. I read all of the news and blogs I usually do (those with new posts) but didn't comment on anything. I also lounged around with a couple of e-books. For the past couple of weeks I have been playing with a new Nook. I find I like it a lot more than I thought I would. I find two features attractive: the e-books are significantly less expensive than the physical books and you can store so much is such a small space. The only draw back right now is that I can't easily page back to find something to review it. Nor is it easy to check out footnotes and then come back to the same page I left. I think as I become more adept at using it I will overcome some of those issues.

Ah, yes I find the same problem with the ebooks but like you, I feel that once I get used to it I will be able to do all the things with it that I do with a normal book.

Glad the peppers are doing well. take care :)

Glad you frittered well. My techie ex has a Nook and really likes it and if I ever decide that I want an e-reader, I'll probably bow to his expertise. In fact he stores his the back up of his e-books with me so I could probably share some with you -- I doubt he would mind since you were in the canoe club. :) Let me know via e-mail.

Glad your garden is doing well! I'm tired of the grey days -- I'm a creature of the sun.
