EEBO is back!
I emailed the librarian (not the one in the show, but all librarians have secret informational super-powers, so just about) when I found out on Saturday. He emailed back, and said he'd check into it, and he did, and now it's back. It was just a glitch! Yay!
So what did I look for first, just for kicks? Herbert's Temple, image 22, "Easter Wings."
It made for a good morning.
And I turned in the conference stuff I was working with, so that's done.
And all that meant I was free to try something new, so, I actually rented a kit and tried my legs at cross-country skiing (with a friend for guidance). We had a lovely day for it, bright sunshine, a gorgeous trail out among trees, near one of my favorite biking roads, and enough warmth so that we were comfy moving very quickly.
I was very awkward at it. And slow. I almost fell over and over, but only got really close once (when I got my legs crossed, as I was trying to get out of my skis at the very end). I can see how it's great exercise, but I'm not sure it's my exercise. I rented the kit for a week, so I'll give it a try a couple more times (if the weather cooperates) and see if I get more comfortable about it.
Meanwhile, I enjoyed spending time with my friend and it felt great to get outside into the sunshine and get some exercise.
