This morning I walked in Glendover Park during the cool early hours. I saw a female Neon Skimmer dragonfly on a tree. I saw a Barn Swallow perched on the school. I attended my Weight Watchers meeting via Zoom. I walked in Story Park and in Green Park. In Green Park I saw a Mississippi Kite in the midst of a shady tree. I listened to two podcasts.
In the afternoon, I fell asleep for a few hours. Then I got up and got some more work done in the early evening. I ate a dinner of shrimp and pasta. Lately I like to put a little Tang in my water.
I finished Alice Thompson's novel "The Existential Detective." I found the solution to the mystery satisfying. I felt the denouement was perhaps a bit rushed and conclusory, but overall the novel was a very good read. I have had very good luck with the series of novels I purchased from Salt Publishing over in the UK. A good small press can do miracles.
I went to the Weightless Books site to find a new novel. I bought the science fiction novel "A Stranger in Olondria" by Sofia Samatar. I look forward to that one. But on a whim I went over to smashwords.com to browse some more for books. I decided to enter the search term "Shropshire" in its search engine. This led me to Roz Morris' "Not Quite Lost", a group of travel sketches. I read the first few dozen pages of this book today.
