But now school is out for summer and I have high hopes to get into a groove beginning next week.
Today, Lu is on a trip to Adventure Land with her 8th grade (or should I say 9TH GRADE!) classmates and Bud is enjoying a couple days with his Grandma.
So I think I am going to fly through a few errands that need to be run and projects that need to be tackled and some cleaning that needs to be taken care of and some picture taking and listings made on Etsy and booth rearranging at Memory Lane and laundry that needs to be washed and all the kids' end-of-year paperwork that needs to be sorted/disposed of and a couple bags dropped off at Goodwill and...Well, you know how it all goes. After looking back through my list, I think I am just going to pour another cup of coffee and just relax for another few minutes before I hit the ground running.
Enjoy your weekend!
So where was I now? OH yes...back to the library book sale on Saturday. Which was much lovelier than the trip on Friday Night. I am just not a crowd-of-people sort of girl. I get irritated and when nudged, I have a tendency to want to nudge back. Or when people are looking at books to their right with a huge box resting on the books I want to look at on their left...yeah...it just doesn't bring out the best in me. So it is much, much better if I go when the crowds have thinned out a bit and I can just look and look and look.
Lu and I hit the Library Book Sale Friday night and I was so very excited to find the books I found! This year I went with the idea that the books I needed would find me without much intense effort on my part.
And we didn't go until the sale was well underway to miss that first rush of book lovers.
My happy finds were the 3 hardcovers by the fabulous Mary Randolph Carter. The woman browsing next to me picked up each one and flipped through it and then would set it down. And I would pick it up. The BG&H Decorating book was in the same section.
I was so proud of myself for showing restraint and such focus walking out with only 4 books!
And then I went back on Saturday...(to be continued...)
