Today was a long day.
I'm not quite sure why it seemed so. It wasn't a bad day, but not necessarily a particularly good one, either.
There were little soul-satisfying bits throughout, but I will be glad to lay my ever so tired head on my smooth pink pillowcase tonight.
The one good thing is the lovely stack of books that are sitting waiting for me on my World War II cot (which I use as a "couch") in my bedroom. We haven't belonged/been to a library in ages...something hard for me with my infinite craving for new reading material. I now have a little red card-stock-ish sort of library card for the tiny little library in the town near us.
I'll never get used to these little towns and their funny ways. They don't seem to realize how old-fashioned they really are. They believe they are quite up-to-date and official. It cracks me up...but I love it all never-the-less.
I still remember when they had to hand write book after book on a piece of paper for their "check out log". Quite the problem, considering we always fill bag after bag with our books to take home. In the last two years they have "modernized" and transferred a lot to computers. It is handy...at least we can check out much, much sooner now, but I sort of miss their neat "old-fashioned" ways...and they don't hand out little cloth bags to carry your books home in anymore. Previously coming from a big city, it was unbelievable to me that they freely gave bags to strangers to borrow and bring back each library visit. How neat is that?
This is what we get when we modernize. ☺
Anyhow, I'm soaking up these books like water after a long drought. Now that I have so many new ones available at my fingertips, I'm searching for other people's favorites to read. Do you have any suggestions for me? I'd love to hear them!
