And how is that cough, Deb? you ask.
My best guess is that I acquired this cough six weeks ago at my grandson's first birthday party. Everyone at that party---my son, daughter-in-law, granddaughter, grandson, my daughter-in-law's mother, and my husband and me---everyone except my husband came down with this lingering cough. Last week, my daugher-in-law's mother visited the doctor and had a COVID-19 test. Happily, her test came out negative.
I've been coughing for four weeks. I spoke to the doctor last weekend and he prescribed a powerful antibiotic and a strong cough suppressant. On Wednesday, I had a cough-free day. Optimistically, I wrote a post that I was well. Thursday, though, I was coughing again. I rewrote the post. Then Friday was another mostly-cough-free day.
Maybe I am...better? Getting well?
Saturday morning update: No coughing....
My library began curbside pickup this week. After a month and a half of reading from my TBR (generally there is a reason these books haven't been read, I've learned) and library ebooks (that mostly have long waits), I was delighted to receive eighteen books from my wonderful public library this week. I immediately read four of them: Storm of the Century, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, The Humans, and The New Life of Hugo Gardner. I also read a book from my TBR, Ever Faithful, and an ebook, Kate DiCamillo's Beverly, Right Here. Here are my reviews:
The Humans by Matt Haig
Beverly, Right Here by Kate DiCamillo
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Storm of the Century by Al Roker
Ever Faithful by Karen Barnett
The New Life of Hugo Gardner by Louis Begley
1,000 Books to Read Before You Die
Devotions by Mary Oliver
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
The Book of Nature Poetry
Mañanaland by Pam Muñoz Ryan
I thought this was interesting: Five Unexpected Benefits of Eliminating Library Fines.
1. We finished our first jigsaw puzzle. What do you usually do with your puzzles after you put them together? I thought about disassembling it and putting it out in my Little Free Library. Or disassembling it and giving it to a book friend....
2. My homemade pizza is getting better. Olive, pineapple, and ham pizza with a garlic-butter crust.
3. The Action Calendar is excellent for May: Meaningful May Calendar.
