Sorry to hear about your knee, Misfit - at least you'll have plenty of reading to keep you occupied! Hope it's a bit easier for you soon.

Oh my goodness me. You poor thing - it can happen in a second. Get well soon.

It was quite a challenge getting me up the stairs without putting any pressure on the right foot let me tell you.[/quote]

Worst thing today - I'm ill! Hate being clogged up. Got it from my new hubby who suffered last weekend. Typical! :p

[quote=""Misfit""]I just might make the 100 book read challenge on goodreads after all :)

Susan your new avator reminds me of Anna and the King, or am I mistaken?[/quote]

It's actually Queen Victoria and Prince Albert at Christmas. I had to shrink it and cut out the kids to fit the avatar requirements. Here's a larger photo.

Our reading room stinks because there was a minor flood outside of the side entrance. Maintenance has been cleaning up most of the time.

They're predicting rain, snow, a lot of wind and very cold weather this weekend and coming week. I don't now if it'll be as bad as it was wind wise like two years ago, but if I disappear for a few days then it's because we have no power, sigh!
