March Around Oak Meadows

Around OakMeadows

Arrrgghh! I had 3 books on reserve at the library and all three of them came at the same time! I will never be able read all 3 of them the the 3 weeks that I can have them. I won't be able to renew them because there is a long waiting list for all 3.  Well, I will start with The Summer before the War by Helen Simonson because I just loved her previous novel, Major Pettigrew's Last Stand.

The first hummingbird has arrived and departed. He is on his way north and I am glad he got to refuel with fresh sugar water at my house.  We should be seeing more soon. 

I ordered a Medical Alert system. It has a necklace that I wear so that if I fall or need assistance, I can push the button to call for help.  It also has a fall alert so that if I fall, they will automatically call and if I don't respond, they will send help.  I mostly want it for when JMM is away from home.  It is $44/month with no contract and no fees to begin or end the service.  

It has been overcast and drizzly for two days now and I am ready for some sunshine.  We are planning a trip to the Hermann Park gardens on Monday if the weather will cooperate. 

Quilting is still on hold but I plan to get back at it tomorrow. 

I am still aghast at the level of Republican political discourse this year.  I hope this doesn't become the norm for election years. 

That's all the news from OakMeadows for now. Only the usual cooking and cleaning and reading this week.

I've been doing so much reading about politics and current events that I haven't had any time for fiction. But it gets harder for me to find things I really want to read, too, even from writers whose work I enjoy.
I've taken a couple of bad falls, one when I was alone, but I don't know if I could get a useful alert system here.

That is a good idea Florence
