With the rainy windy day that had been predicted, we did not get the port spring clean up done. I must confess that maybe if we worked between 8 and 11 AM we might have accomplished some of it
The rain increased considerably after 11 AM. Allan went to pick up books at the library and took this photos of the early crocuses and irises at the community building in which the library is housed. You can click on the photos in this mosaic to view them individually.
I had finished the excellent book The Shock Doctrine and was pleased at the prospect of a new batch of library books. While I waited, I photographed a pile of old postcards (from the collection of our friend Joe Chasse) for my Grandma’s Scrapbook blog. They will begin to appear there later this year.
A sneak peak:
My books arrived. What excitement opening the book bag! This new assortment contains some fiction, for a change.
I settled right in with one of them.
It is poetically written and its only flaw is a plot twist that I did not much like. The parts about Scrabble, I liked very much. (A boodle is what I call a bingo.)
Even though I only play online now, I remember this sound:
I finished the book. It was a much easier read than the non fiction I’ve been perusing lately.
Our garden club weekly dinner was postponed because of members being under the weather.
For the next two days, the actually weather won’t matter much because we have indoor political activities to attend.
