I've been delinquent in my writing the past few days. The holiday weekend started on Thursday evening and just wrapped up this afternoon. Lots of people to see and things to do, and side dishes to make for parties. It's hard getting back in the groove of things, and I have to pull a lot of shifts at the bookstore this week, meaning getting back on track is going to be extra difficult.
One of our degus got injured last week and she does not appear to be getting better. She has a follow-up with the vet tomorrow, and I'm very worried.
My 1902 Leaves of Grass has finally been repaired and is back with me. Huzzah! It's as good as new; you can't even tell that it was damaged. And it cost much less than I was expecting.
