I just laughed at this. I ordered 2 bottles (1 liter each) of liquid hand wash and the seller requested that I post a picture of it online together with my photo. Free advert? I posted a photo of the two bottles on FB without my picture…haha!

Lately, I’ve been using online stores to buy what we need. Yesterday, my order for maintenance medicine arrived and the pharmacy asked me to comment a word or two on their site, the kind of service, how fast it is etc. I obliged. It’s their way of getting additional customers I guess.

Finally, I am almost done cleaning and weeding the garden. Josef and Jovy are on vacation leave for a week so Josef helped me to trim the grass this afternoon.  It’s hot again, there was no rain for the past two days. Summer is almost over but I didn’t get to appreciate it much because of the lockdown. Whereas before, during summer, I would buy fruits in season but I could not go out nowadays. They say there is no need for quarantine pass but the way I see it, we are still on the upward curve, nothing has changed.

Back in April 2015, I read a book  entitled All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, Goodreads Choice 2014 Winner.  I know I posted a review of it somewhere here.  I found another book of his called About Grace, my third book but it seems a little disappointing, the narrative is good but the story? It was beautifully crafted of course, the language is good but I got lost in the plot.  All the while I wondered if he is the same author of All the Light You Cannot See.  I also wonder if I could finish the book until the end. For me, it’s either you can totally relate or you get bored.  There are so many still on my TBR list. I got curious about the short summary of  The Given Day by Denise Lehan. It touched on the Spanish influenza pandemic which I think is more interesting considering what we have right now, another pandemic. Try to read his other book Mystic River which I think is his best.

What do you know, I’m done with 56 books so far this year.
