Today was such a laid back day..oh not saying I didn’t get anything done , I did after dragging my morning out until noon drinking a third cup of coffee 🙄 I luckily didn’t have much to clean around the house .. just some laundry to fold and my daughter who put it away for me and then wiped down the bathroom sinks oh the fun things. Then it was off to the post office and a library stop. Grabbed my book I had ordered along with another book that looked interesting. When I picked up the book Milkman by Anna Burns and asked the librarian if she had read it she likes all the new ones that come out. She said she hadn’t yet but would eventually , she stated someone else had but brought it back quickly stating that she couldn’t get into no matter how much she tried. So I said well I’ll try it knowing me I’ll be the one who likes it. I seem to like the books some do not . I’ll let you know if I do. I hope so it will be nice to have several books to read to get through this month along with everything else I’m doing . Supper is done and cleaned up my daughter is working then will be with her boyfriend my hubby will enjoy some tv until he gets to bed earlier for work in the morning . I’m going to write in my journal ..oh I started it last night it was a great feeling I was worried about how I would balance journaling with blogging but so far I’m balancing it easily . Will see as I go along but it’s comforting journaling it’s a nice release. Well goodnight everyone time for some journaling and reading.
I went to the library and checked out 3 books and two movies ,the movies will watch over the weekend. So tonight I am thinking is a good night to cozy up with a blanket hot chocolate and one of the books . Since the temperatures have dropped . The last couple of nights it’s been chatting with a friend online , I think we chatted till well after midnight. So tonight I think I will read. Even though I enjoyed our talk, I think it will be good to balance it out now with some reading and my friend can settle as well. Out of the three books I have starting with the smaller one to get myself back into reading . My minds been so occupied with things I needed the friendly chat . I’m hoping I can concentrate. . I guess I will give it a try.
I woke pretty early which is unusual for me since not having to wake and get kids going in the morning for school . So I tend to stay up late and sleep in. After a day of dreary wet cold weather . I gave in early and went to bed at a decent time . I woke to a nice sunny crisp fall morning. Enjoyed coffee with my daughter and some conversation then we headed in different directions to start our day.I left went to the post box ..hmm… nothing from my son. I know it’s early. But I can at lest hope..then headed to the library FINALLY ! I did it I was still in their system just needed. to renew my expired card but not having it still . The librarian issued me a new one . I Lucked out ..thinking I would have to order the books I wanted ,she had had them plus I picked out a book that looked really interesting and the Author was local ..even better. I found two movies . Chatted with people I hadn’t seen in awhile and walked out about an hr later with three books and two movies. I guess I’ll be reading after my hubby and I watch hour favorite shows and he goes to bed early for work . As well as a day when no errands need to be run and house is cleaned up . I can curl up with a nice hot cup of tea and a book on these cold days. Happy I finally went . It was nice and everyone there was pleasant. This way it’s cheaper too then buying the books I guess it’s time to see about supper hubby will be home soon and hungry . The Conners are on tonight the premier since they took Roseanne Barr off her own show . Don’t know if I’ll watch it or not tonight I’m recording it just Incase but that subject is for another day …. 🙄 I’m thinking of watching The Voice ,then start one of the books .I’m thinking that reading before bed helps me sleep better too. Okay time to take care of supper.
Its rained all day and it’s been a cool one couldn’t get enough hot cups of coffee or tea in my hands to warm them up . Happy I was out the day before getting everything done that needed to be . Then I could just worry about things around the house. An easy day ,laundry was all set ,house was not bad and supper was breakfast for supper …hot and delicious comport food ! So that being send after catching up on a tv show I recorded I started going through my books deciding on what to keep and what to send to the local church tag sale. There is only so much space to keep my favorites.. before looking like a book hoarder ( hahaha) I really need to renew my library card . I have books at the moment but do have a list of books I want so I will then get them at the library it’s cheaper too. Plus you can rent movies there as well. My hubby and I can enjoy some movies on the weekends cold winter nights . When football isn’t playing ..
I will say I love the DVR that works so great ! Used it finally today so yes the show I caught up on today was the first time I used this feature since we updated our tv dish . Love it . My daughter has just texted me to say she is on her way home soon from work so I could make some pancakes for her with the home fries I made earlier and saved for her and my son. I think my son will be all set he’s out with friends and they always grab food out and one never knows when he will be home . In a week I will know where he is every night . Even though he will be away in another State I will know he will be in one place every night ..bed sleeping 🙂 that part is comforting , right now it feels like he’s just wondering …during the day he’s working out staying in shape at night he’s out well not every night but it’s a guessing game and it’s hard to get sleep when my mind starts to wonder where he is . I know I’m such a mom(hahaha) after I make my daughters food I will settle in with the hubby’s and watch the new tv show FBI , it’s really interesting. Well she will be home soon so I guess it’s time to get off here for the night.
It’s been a hot humid very rainy summer that has brought reading back into my life. I’m feeling like an avid reader again. I’m almost done with the book I just started , well okay I started last week but that’s good for me , since I haven’t read like this in yrs. I’m liking this one author and I know it’s going to get pricey buying this authors books so I guess it’s time to head back to the library . Sadly it’s been yrs being in one . do they even give out library cards anymore? yes that was a serious question. I’m actually feeling like it will be awkward walking back into one.. the Good thing as well I can rent movies too since my hubby and I have been watching more movies lately. .
Our town library is unique it’s very little but has a lot of books and movies and the books they don’t have I can order from them and they can get them from other library’s well if they still do that . Yes once again I remind you so out of this scene . Any how the library very old and made out of stone if you look at the photo. I think it’s quaint and peaceful yes it’s a little dark looking ( hahaha) but inside it’s warm and cozy especially in the winter. . They do a lot of business Im always seeing cars there when it’s open. I guess on Thursday I will go back and check all this out and see if it’s the same librarian as well. . Looking at the time I see once again time as gotten away from me and it’s getting late so I guess it’s time to get some sleep . Out to lunch with my hubbies side of the family tomorrow . As both kids work so just my hubby and I and then who know what else we will do … I was thinking of checking out our local candle shop to get some fall scent candles for the house . So maybe we can do that as well. I guess it’s off to bed now good night..
