An old Vermont barn

I got out before the rain and wind arriving later today, but I didn’t get in much of a run. I often pass this late eighteenth-century barn. It’s said to be one of the oldest in Vermont. I love the old boards, stonework, stone walls and maple trees. I’m writing about a stone mason, Adam Sloan in my Swift River Valley series. Inspiration!
Bronchitis is not helpful with writing or running! I’m on the mend but taking the rest of the day off and curling up in front of the TV, rewatching the third season of Shetland. I have books to read. I got an early copy of Karna Small Bodman’s upcoming thriller, Trust but Verity, that I can’t wait to dive into, but when I’m feeling better. I love adding to my TBR pile, but I love whittling it down even more.
Back to Jimmy Perez and the gang. Have you watched Shetland? We’re waiting for the last episode of Season 4. No spoilers! We’re planning a family trip to Scotland but not sure we’ll get as far as Shetland, but we’d love to. We’ll see. In the meantime, I’ll see it from my couch.
