Better Is Better

Still wimpy on the eye front. I have a follow-up appointment on the 8th. We'll leave for Florida on the 12th. I have 9 days for this eyeball to improve enough to drive the lion's share of our trip. It is not better than it was two days ago, but much better than last week. Better is indeed better.

The library found a really good Braille learning book. I'll be bringing that and the other Braille book I checked out on our trip to Florida. When I'm not driving, I plan to be resting my eyes and what better way than to learn Braille.

Little Free Libraries/Pretend You Don't See Her (Book Review)

This post is NOT a double entendre, but more of a double-thought post. See, the book I will be reviewing came from a Little Free Library that is located inside of my local mom & pop grocery store--especially during this time of social distancing, when I am out and about, I am trying to eat and shop local. I've been holding off a little bit on this post because I wanted to snap a photo of the little free library to go along with this--but, the last time I went to a big chain store (because I needed specific Mexican ingredients that the mom & pop grocer doesn't carry in order to make slow-cooked barbacoa...and it was AMAZING).

I have always been intrigued by the Little Free Libraries, and even contemplated starting one myself...but I live in Redneckville, and reasonably figured my books would be completely desecrated by people who didn't appreciate them. (That's no way to treat a book, people!) If you live in a more respectful community, and are interested in donating to one yourself, I suggest you start at the source to learn more about the movement: https://littlefreelibrary.org/faqs/. The pandemic, drawing me to places I don't normally patronize, introduced me to a wonderful little free library, wherein I found another solid novel from Mary Higgins Clark.
