This cheering sight greeted me as I looked up from one of several Barbara Pym novels this weekend. The Columbus Day holiday weekend turned out to be beautiful — and maybe that's why we had only a few visitors at the two open houses for the new condo. It is still on the market, with only a peep of interest here and there. But that's still something, so we're clinging to those hopes.
Reading Prudence and Jane, An Academic Question, Quartet in Autumn, and now A Few Green Leaves helped to distract me, especially in the wee hours when sleep is impossible and worry is constant. And Possum and his pals also helped.
