Hope everyone had a lovely rest. Today my plan was to get my exhaust on my car changed and since I knew it would take a lot of time decided the rest of my day would be full of tidying up details and little to no writing. Tomorrow I go to Gaborone for the job interview. Cross fingers for me, though I'm not yet sure what I want just yet. I guess cross fingers I figure it out.
It has been raining here in Mahalapye almost continuously for two days. Yesterday, Easter Monday, I woke up feeling pretty bad and spent most of the day in bed. Luckily I am just from a book buying splurge so started and finished The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and started Wally Lamb's I Know this Much is True, recommended by my writer friend Helen Brain. That hefty book will keep me busy for some time.
From early afternoon yesterday, I lay on my bed reading and just out the glass doors in the male morula tree was a big spotted eagle owl attempting to get some shelter from the relentless rain. He stayed with me the whole day until dark. Though the photo makes him seem miles away, he's actually quite near. I felt as if he was watching over me. Sort of hoped he had some mail for me from Hogwarts but it was not to be.
