I have just a quick post today to say that I enjoyed Nancy Mitford’s The Pursuit of Love very much, and now have to decide if I want to read Love in a Cold Climate, in the same volume, or move on to something else. (And if I move on to something else, what will it be??? I’m not sure ….) The novel is light, breezy, and amusing. It’s about the Radlett’s, a large country family, and their exploits as the children grow up and make their way through the world. The narrator is a Radlett cousin whose mother has abandoned her, and so she stays with her relatives; she focuses her story on her cousin Linda, a high-spirited, romantic character, and her attempts to find true love. Although the novel ends during World War II, it never loses its brightness; the family gathers in the country once again and spiritedly takes up the challenge of dealing with rations and the possibility of invasion.
And for a health update: I don’t know yet exactly what is wrong with me — I should find that out in a couple days — but I do know I won’t be riding for a couple months. The endocrinologist said — depending on what I actually have — that I’ll probably need a month or two of medication to get back to normal again, although I should begin to improve right away. So, it’s time to take up yoga more seriously perhaps. And once I feel a bit better I can probably handle strolls in the woods. But no strenuous exercise for a while, alas.
