We suddenly are very busy — yesterday and today. This morning, I have a doctor's appointment at 8:30 a.m. in Saint-Aignan, and then we need to be down in Ligueil (south of Loches) by 10:00. I'm not sure we'll make it on time, because Ligueil is a 55-minute drive from here. We'll try not to speed.
I'm doing some typing these days, as you can see, but it's still a struggle. I guess I'd better get used to the situation. My finger will be splinted for another month, if not two! I'll see what the doctor says about it this morning.

Yesterday we were able to sit outside from noontime until late afternoon — we were invited for lunch by friends and had the meal around a table under a big shade tree. It was sunny and pleasant, though it was far from hot out. Welcome to summer in Saint-Aignan. It's only three months late this year. Let's hope it lasts more than a couple of days.
Hunting and pecking on the laptop keyboard is frustrating. That's what I'm doing right now. It's actually easier to type short messages like blog comments and e-mails on the Android tablet — and that's saying something! Typing on the tablet's on-screen keyboard is no fun. Maybe it's because my fingers, even the ones that aren't swollen, are just too fat. And getting the cursor to land in the right place when you want to correct an error or change the text is like trying to thread a small needle with fat twine. Sigh.
