I flew the coup yesterday while the littles napped and the oldest two girls were having their “quiet play”/reading time. (Ken was home–he works nights so they were all home sleeping or reading.)
I gloried in book errands! First stop was Barnes and Noble, where I sipped a latte while looking over Newberries. (I did well–only spent $25 including the latte!)
Then on to the library where I loaded up on books about ancient civilizations (to supplement our history reading as we do the Mesopotamians and head into Ancient Egypt, Babylon and such… ) By special request of the eldest two girls, I also emptied the library shelves of all their butterfly books again.
I only checked out one book for me. I’ve been indulging in too much fiction reading lately. I was averaging *gulp* a book a day last week, and I really need to buckle down on the water treatment course (grumble mutter…mutter…), so… I only checked out Nourishing Traditions. It is so much more than a cookbook, and the author thinks like I do (only she’s better at it). I placed it on my ever expanding Amazon wish list where it shall taunt me until I finally break down and put it in my virtual-cart. Until then, I’ll be hogging the library copy.
