The state is still slow on testing for COVID-19 but the county I live in is trying to have lots of people get tested, so I set up an appointment. I don't think I've been exposed or had it, but they need as many as possible tested and are reaching out to a group of 45,000 to start with. I responded to a rather complicated message in my voice mail to call in and learn about this. Since I went through a period of recovery from surgery in the spring if I'd had a virus that didn't have overt symptoms I wouldn't know and I was feeling bad enough already to have missed any.

It's tremendously hot here this week, so most of my work has been indoors. I transported a large box to the FedEx drop-off for an eBay sale (finally!) - shipping is more complicated now when the USPS is so messed up by Trump's postmaster general. Bashing sorting machines mean it takes over a week for a first class parcel to travel 20 miles. Anyway, that was a couple of cubic feet of bulk cleared out of the front room.

I'm reading two books, one due in a week (audiobook) and one I just want to finish (Kindle). Completing both of those won't affect any space in the house. There is a cartoon of a huge set of bookshelves in a grand home library and they're empty, except for a Kindle propped on the bottom shelf in one corner. I'll never get to that point, but my Fire tablet is slowly filling with volumes.
