Cozy with a book

Tonight I'm wearing my winter robe. It's dark purple and semi-fuzzy. Long sleeves, high neck. Feels so cozy.

This morning my drive was foggy most of the way to Bellingham, then it ended quite suddenly. It's intriguing that fog is a cloud lying on the ground.

I'm reading a biography of Queen Anne, the last Stuart monarch of Britain. Her friend, then enemy, Sarah Churchill, first Duchess of Marlborough was quite a piece of work. (Those are the same Marlborough/Churchills from whence sprang Winston Churchill.) After Anne came the House of Hanover, which is the current dynasty, although their name has changed, first to Saxe-Coburg-Hesse when Queen Victoria married Prince Albert, and then to Windsor during World War I, when they wanted to shed their German name.

Aren't those some interesting historical facts?
