May Monthly News

Welcome to the May edition of the monthly news!   Still under lockdown. đŸ€· Mother's Day came and went. Just as uneventful as Easter. I worked, does that count? I got my first vaccination on the 21st! I received the Pfizer vaccine. Wasn't bad at all. I got a sore arm, mild headache and felt tired. For being a diabetic with severe allergies, I was surprised. Hope my second dose in September goes as smoothly. We also (silently) celebrated Victoria Day. Since the government opened things up a little bit, we went to my aunt and uncles for smoked meat, drinks and fun!  I know it doesn't look like I read much, but I read review books that are not released yet, so they are not listed. Plus that Joe Hill book was a biggin'!! I have to admit, I am in a bit of a slump though due to the nice weather. Happens every year. Nice weather comes and I want to do more outdoor activities that are hard to read whilst doing said activities. Anyone else have this problem??  BOOKS : Nos4a2 - Jo
