Happy stuff for the weekend:
~ Marg at Reading Adventures is organizing a Terry Prachett 2010 Reading Challenge. I’m embarrassed to admit that although I’ve some Pratchett TBR, I’ve never read past the first 20 pages. Perhaps I’ll join up 🙂
~ The last bit of The Biochemist’s birthday present has arrived, so I can wrap everything and mail it on Monday.
~ I’ve gotten slightly organized and boxed up about 50 books to take to Good Will for donation. (My local library branch isn’t taking donations right now.) Two small packages of books will be mailed out for an informal bookswap, too.
~ A beautiful quilt in green and blue, made by
for the Save Dave auction, arrived yesterday.
Not so great stuff for the weekend:
~ Granny is back in the hospital. She was severely anemic, and her doctor believes she may have developed an autoimmune problem because of the rapidity of the drop. [I’m a little peeved because Mom asked the nursing home to monitor her blood because this was a known concern after her last hospital stay, but the nursing home said it wasn’t necessary given her age and general state of health.] The hospital is limiting patients to two visitors due to the flu risk/spread, so I can’t visit.
~ Someone broke my car’s passenger side mirror. It was fine Friday night. This morning, I saw that it was broken. My car was parallel parked at the curb — it cannot have been hit by a passing car, but had to have been broken by a person on the sidewalk. And they had to have noticed when they did it, since it took a bit of force. I’m thinking it may have been the same neighborhood hoodlums who smashed my neighbor’s pumpkins and stole her flower pots.
