We took a stroll to the shop this afternoon to pick up a few groceries.It was a very productive shopping trip! Not only did we get our bread, milk, eggs, and some produce, but we learned about some upcoming village activities.
Bill was surprised at my enthusiasm when I spotted this sign and gasped, 'A garden fete! I have read about so many fetes in so many British novels and here is one coming up!' He kept asking me what I was talking about and I kept jabbing my finger in the air in the direction of the sign. What fun!
Found some good resources for the German lessons--older, but still useful.
I could not believe they had this Miss Read book! Friends have recommended her to me and I found one book in the Mayo library system when we lived in Ballinrobe, which I enjoyed very much--she just does not show up much, but here she was--3 novels in one volume. Yay!
And there were a couple of novels by recently departed mystery writers.
Simple excitements in my simple life--just the way I like it!
