600 miles!

I ran 3 miles tonight, hitting the 600 mile mark! It was a difficult run because I had a migraine all day and couldn't seem to shake it. I felt better after the run. I went out for dinner with Kathy, Brent and some of Kathy's friends for Chicken Burritos at the Spadina Freehouse. The last picture above is of our neighbors' dogs. They are absolutely wonderful, cute and friendly. 

What have I been reading lately? I admit I am not reading as much as I do in the winter. I finished Geraldine Brooks', People of the Book a week ago. This is a wonderful novel about Hanna Heath, an australian rare book expert who is asked to restore a fifteenth century Hebrew manuscript. The story moves back and forth between Hanna's investigation of the tiny artifacts found in the book and the dramatic stories behind the presence of those artifacts (insect wing, wine stain, salt crystal and white hair). It is an interesting story spanning several centuries and historical locations, including Sarajevo in the mid-1990s. I found the book intriguing and enjoyed particularly the stories of the artifacts. I am now reading another book by Canadian author Andrew Pyper, The Lost Girls.
