When I logged onto my email this morning I had a notification message from the library that an e-book I'd reserved was 'already available for download.' I'd placed myself in the queue a couple of weeks ago when I was clicking around on the page. 'Ah sure, 23 July,' I thought, 'That's plenty of time for me to read the e-books and regular books I already have and the ones that will be coming any day now.' I did read a couple of e-books. Some of the expected books showed up yesterday. I have one ready to return tomorrow, having started it last night and finished this afternoon. I renewed the large collection of Elizabeth Bowen short stories and one of the e-books. I read a couple of my own books. I will download this new one and into the 'pile' it will go. When it rains, it pours!
So it is with the glorious unsummery weather we are having today and, so they say, tomorrow. I am thrilled that it is grey, chilly, and sometimes raining--and even pouring. It is chilly enough that I think tonight I can work on my largest work-in-progress--the circular crocheted lace shawl. It is getting big now and has been too warm to have on my lap.
