What I See Outside
I think it is supposed to snow again. 40% chance of more snow.
Tomorrow I go for a doctor's visit. Postponed (due to weather) from Monday--and previous to that postponed from last Thursday--for weather. The phone may ring in the morning postponing the appointment yet again.
I ordered books from the Maine Library Service. Lots of the lending libraries said there was a long holding time. So, I ordered nine. Thinking it would take time to get them. Not so. I have a huge pile on the table. I am working my way through the first one-- The Miniaturist by Jesse Burton. Takes place in the last half of the 1600's in Amsterdam. It's quite dark.
Not much else to write about. G and I took Riley for a walk on neighborhood streets on the leash. He (and us) hadn't been out walking since last Monday. When we got back home I took Riley out on the paths around the yard. Riley was running around like a crazy dog and knocked me onto the ground. And---I had fallen and couldn't get up. Really. I had hoped G would look out the door and come help me up. Eventually, I did manage to get up and back into the house. I was covered in snow. Riley thought it was all the best sort of fun. Wanted to do it more often.
I eventually dried off and warmed up. Riley took a nap. G had to go out and charge up the battery in my car--I've not driven the car in many many weeks. Since it started snowing.
Well, back to reading.
