    I know, can you believe it? The dry-cleaners is just down the road from the library, but I forgot the books at home when I left for work!!!

    About seven. I finished several of them, but kept thinking I could finish them all and save myself several trips. I think I have two left that I didn't read, but they were more reference manuals, so not something you read cover to cover.

    Okay, I'm substituting out the vet call for "make a winter shelter for the cat." The check-up is routine, and with the temps guesstimated to be dropping into their 20's here, the cat needs a warm place to sleep!! Happily, he hangs out under my stairs, so I have a starting point!
