My hopes for a lovely, spring-like May that were so quick to bubble up last Sunday with its sunshine have been dashed. Rain and more rain.
The library has benefitted. I spent extra time working on my clean up project for three hours yesterday. I'll put in another afternoon on Friday. Areas of floor are visible now, and by the end of the time yesterday I was starting to think there may be an end in sight--at least for round one.
Ar home, I took out a large load of blankets and sheet sets that we no longer use but I had stored for "just in case we need them." I looked for a an organization that was collecting bedding and blankets to send to Alabama tornado victims, but ended up taking the whole pile to the Salvation Army. There are people being displaced right here in Vermont because of flooding as I was informed when I called the SA to inquire. So they happily took what I had.
Finally, the wet and chilly weather has given me plenty of time to knit and I have finally finished my lace shawl. I'll actuall get to use it with this dreary cold snap.
