Still Love This House

I know I’ve posted pictures of this house before, but I still love it.

Woke up feeling miserable, don’t know why, but I’m doing what I can to alleviate it.  I bought myself lilacs, went to my local library branch to find out if my access card can be used to take out books because I thought the idea of all the money I could save not buying books might make me feel better, (it can and it did a little) had a burrito for lunch and strawberries for dessert.  

What else can I do??

Finney just curled up in my lap.  That should help.

I have my monthly meditation meeting tonight, except I really want to curl up in a ball and watch tv instead. That’s probably not the right choice though.

We’re so vulnerable as a species.  Some of us are anyway.

Okay, I’m going to go figure out how I order my library books online so they’re there waiting for me at my local branch.

  1. I used to spend a small fortune on books – with the Library at the end of my street I reserve them instead. I look on Barnes and Noble and see if any of my favorite authors are coming out with books in the near future and reserve before they come out. I am usually one of the first ones on the list and get them as soon as they come out and save a ton of money. Plus it’s a greener way to go

  2. Good point!! And I’m so excited to know about this. It kills me how much I’ve spent but I just won’t think about that.

  3. Stacy – I too am a lover of books – since I was a small child. I have given my books away three times in my 56 years. I always manage to hold on to a select few (several hundred). Lucky for me I have been working at the local high school for the past 15 years and have access to some of the greatest books around. But I still buy books – the last three books I purchased were your books and they are great! The bookstores always have tons of sales and then there are all the thrift shops and I love to walk into a used bookstore!!!! Lucky for me all of my faimly/friends know about my addiction and that is what I receive as gifts. You know how to tell if you are a real book lover? The condition of your books – real book lovers are very careful about getting any food/drink and don’t bend their pages – little things like that.
