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.
