Having my dear friend, Alise, here for a week was fabulous, and I was sad to have to say goodbye on Wednesday. I drove her back to San Jose so she could catch her flight back to Canada early in the afternoon. I parked the car and walked her to the airline counter where she checked her bag and got her assigned seat. As we were walking towards the security line, we stopped into a gift shop. I spotted a rack of books... in English!! WOW, jackpot!
I checked out the titles and landed on "Quiet" by Susan Cain. It's all about how introverts cope in an extroverted world. I know many people think I'm extroverted because I can be quite sociable and chatty. I'm certainly not shy and I'm pretty open. Although that's true, I need a lot of time alone to recharge my energy (which is ultimately the definition of an introvert). Extroverts get their energy through external factors... being with people recharges them. So, the topic of this book intrigues me. I haven't started it yet, but will start tomorrow, I think. I always look forward to cracking open a good book. I've heard good reviews, so I'm hopeful.
We have more B&B guests arriving late in the week so we have a little break until then. And we have my daughter, Phoenix, coming with a friend for a week in early May to look forward to. I can't believe it's almost May... where does the time go?
Oh, and let us not forget about the rain... finally!! The skies opened up and it rained for several hours on Friday and Saturday. This is a very good thing.
