We went to Donegal Town this morning to go to the library. The Diamond has been sporting the bunting for weeks now and the Abbey Hotel has gone all out with the flags.
I knew I had one book in at the library and four others in transit. I hoped to get those today, but honestly thought that since yesterday was a bank holiday, I probably wouldn't. I was wrong--they were all there. Woo-hoo!
After we were done at the library, we walked around a little bit and then called in at Aldi before it was time to get the bus home. We'd read that the Animals in Need group really needed cat food donations because they are rescuing lots of cats this year, so we picked up a couple of bags while we were in Aldi and dropped them off at the nearby charity shop that they run. While there, we also picked up a couple of books. I took a cosy mystery that takes place at Christmastime in the Cotswolds. Another time we were in there, I found a book in the same series that takes place at Halloween. I've set them aside and will read them when it's the appropriate season and then they can go in the wee free library.
The gladioli are still spectacular and seem to be enjoying life in our living room, even if they are not arranged, but just plunked into a jug.
