January 3, 2023 – New Year, New Book!!

Hello, Everyone! It is that awkward time of year when I want to do things, but I’m stuck doing other things. I keep forgetting what day it is and the whole routine is off. Also, it has been raining and overall gloomy outside. What to do with DD on one of her last Christmas vacation days? Luckily, this morning I remembered The Library!

Today was an excellent day to visit the library. We hadn’t gotten over there in months…and I felt it inside. The last few months have been consistently busy and I haven’t been working on any book in particular. I needed to get outside my own story and get lost in someone else’s. Just being at the library with all of those wonderful books, filled with stories and ideas made me feel extraordinary! AND I found a great book! 😊

I tried to get DD to find a new book, but the book she wanted was an ebook. She will download her book later. I, personally, don’t like ebooks. I think it’s important to hold a book and turn its pages. Anyway, she drew a picture of the cover of her ebook. It was really good! She’s really great at drawing! She didn’t want to leave when it was time to go. She said she likes being at the library with all the other people. I was so happy when she said that! ❤️

I started several books I own at home before Christmas, but I couldn’t get into them. I had wanted to pick up a copy of The Screwtape Letters, but our library had no copy. (I will order it off eBay. This book keeps popping up on my radar.) I ended up searching for the 12th book in The Saxon Chronicles: Sword of Kings. I was surprised to find it at our library. I usually have to have those books transferred over. I am a few pages in and I feel so at home. I will be sad when I finish this series.

What I am reading right now – Book 12

Today was a wonderful, unbusy day! I could use several more, but I am grateful for one. Tomorrow we will also play by ear, but Thursday it’s back to business as usual. At least I have my wonderful book!

Happy Tuesday to You!
