And another week goes by...June is almost here!
Hello book friends! I thought I would post this great chalk art picture because it kind of said 'June and summer!' to me. I took this last fall at the Kerrville Chalk Festival, which I wrote about here. I had such a good time at that festival and hope to get to attend again. This year? Who knows? However, I'm certain that it will come around again when the time is right.
I don't have much to tell other than to relate that another week has gone by. You knew that, right? Ha! I did get my haircut last Saturday and it went very well. Masks were worn by both of us. She didn't even need to shampoo my hair as I had just done that. She sprayed it with water, cut it short (very short at my request), did not blow it dry, we chatted a little, I paid and made an appointment for 4 weeks from now, and I went home. It was lovely.
Otherwise, I've been continuing my walking and yoga. I've actually improved my 'time per mile' quite a bit. Didn't really try to do that, but it's a nice benefit from walking every single day. I'm usually pretty drenched in sweat by the time I get home, even on the cooler mornings. I did notice that my rec center is open by appointment for use of the walking track and workout equipment. It just became available this week. I won't be going in quite yet, but I might consider it as summer advances. What I can't conceive is walking/jogging with a mask on - I'll have to think about that. Maybe early mornings outside would be OK even if they are muggy and warm.
Our mystery book group is going virtual for now or we'll be attempting to do that in upcoming days. We're having a trial run this week to see how it goes and then will do a discussion of Where The Crawdads Sing the next week. As the host, I'm a little nervous about it, but my husband will be around to help me if I need him. Quite a few of the group have indicated that they will try to attend (we're doing invitation only). I've attended the afternoon book group that I'm part of virtually and it went well. It's not the same as sitting in a circle and sharing, but it's about the best we can do right now. Who knows when libraries will be allowing meetings again?
Hope everyone is doing well and has a good weekend. Take care!
