our neighborhood variety


I have posted before, at some point, how much I love our neighborhood for a variety of reasons (the pig walker–the pig’s name is Chorizo, our enormous wandering flock of guinea hens, the “urban farms,” the back entrance to the huge park where we hike and mountain bike), but the tons of Little Free Libraries are a big reason.  Sadly (for me), though, most of the books are either for children or are books that I’m not really into.  But, yesterday night as we were walking the dog, the husband pointed out a new library to me–I was in the middle of a reenactment of some work drama and didn’t even notice.  Oh my gosh!  This new little library had books in it that were actually on my to-read list and had a few I’d read and enjoyed!!!!  SO exciting!  So, I took these two books–I notice that one is the book @healthyontheinside is reading right now!  Today, I’ll bring over two of my books and drop a little thank you note in their mailbox!  SO excited to have found a kindred reading spirit in my neighborhood!  The husband is currently finishing the install of his custom designed and built air filtration and dust collection system for his garage shop, but once that’s done, I want him to build a little library for us, too (among a zillion other projects I’ve already lined up for him, ha!).

I’m grateful to be working from home today.  I have so much to do for this huge MLK Day project…and now there’s terrible weather predicted.  Getting to work on it from home while also taking care of some errands like getting my car inspected is nice.  And, anything feels less stressful when you get to do it comfortably and in your own time.  Happy Wednesday, friends! :)
