Still hot and sunny. Going to be even hotter tomorrow. Looks like it's going to that way right into next week. And no rain in the forecast, either. We're under a burn ban......no fires of any kind, including fireworks, even charcoal grills. There have been brushfires in neighboring counties, so there's cause for concern.
Didn't do a lot today. Changed my sheets and took a shower. Brushed Nougat. Talked to Tim, read the local paper and continued reading the novel I'm into.
Brother's up in NY for a few days, so it's just "the ladies" as he would say. I thought we might go out to eat today, but Mom didn't seem to want to today. I suggested we go to Denny's tomorrow, and then Dollar General so I can get a Mother's Day card for Ellie. I think Dollar Tree has nicer (and cheaper) cards, but they're out by Walmart, and it's a pain driving over there. Dollar General is practically at the end of our street.
When I told Mom I was able to use my old library card to get ebooks, she decided to try her old card at her former county's digital library. No such luck. Her card had expired. I suggested applying for a non-resident card, like I'd been considering. For me, it would've been $25/yr. She checked what it would be for a non-resident Nassau County (Long Island) card........would you believe......$385/yr!!!!????? That is INSANE!
Needless to say, Mom will manage without it. I can see $25/yr, or even $50 for something like the NYC Public Library......but seriously......$385?!?!! I wouldn't spend that much even if i bought every book I read in a year!!!
Well, it's Nougat's dinner time, and I don't have much else to say, so I'll end this here.
