So, it's been awhile since I've had a real post other than hodgepodges. Has anyone heard of Little Libraries? Basically it's a box of books, you take one and give one back. They must send you a generic box, because a lot of them look alike, but then you decorate it however you please. I've also seen a lot of customized boxes. This one is fairly close to my house and they decorated it all with buttons. How cool is that?
The first place we went to, we went to it last year, they moved to a bigger location. I saw a lot of cool things, but since I'm trying not to spend much money lately, I didn't find much I couldn't live without. Maybe that's why I had a better time, I took the time to figure out if I really wanted things before buying them.
My first purchase was this cute little pillow made out of an old quilt. I love old quilts, but they're usually out of my price range, so I try to find other ways to get them.
Like I said I had more fun this year than in previous years. Maybe we'll have to do it when I limited time next year.
My week has been nice and busy. I feel as if I've been working all week, and I did most of it. Monday was work and then it poured right when I got done, and continued pouring for about an hour. Tuesday we had flooding and a little more rain. Wednesday, I picked up an extra shift and just worked. Wednesday was my birthday, but I didn't do anything special. We went out for supper and I got a cake, which we haven't touched yet. Thursday, I had a split shift and in between had to mow and rake the lawn and take care of laundry. I was so exhausted when I went back to work that night, afterwards it was fireworks. Friday, got up and went to the parade, after that we got ready for a family get-together and then I wandered downtown for a little while. Unfortunately, that was un-exciting. I thought there was supposed to be more to do/eat/see. Yesterday, we spent the day sorting through my brother's old things while he was here. And today, I got back to work, I'm not sure I'm ready for it.
How was everyone's 4th of July?
