I remember my husband asking me once, ‘Would you want to live 200 years?’
‘Of course, imagine all the books you could read in that time’, was the first answer that came out of my mouth.
A few months ago I wanted to make myself a Christmas present and put a big order through Amazon.com. I happily picked my books, then picked some more… until I looked at the postage price. Mmm, no.
I checked my wish list against the library catalogues of the two local libraries I was a member of. Between the two libraries I got about three quarters of my wish list. How lucky that I checked before I paid for the order! I’m still going through those books.
This week I discovered that one of my local libraries had increased the allowed renewals from 2 to 3. For someone like me who always borrows too many books and has no time to read them, that’s three extra weeks! Definitely something to be grateful for.
And finally, I’m grateful for another rainy day. The kids are off to a dental checkup and I’m at home with my book and my cup of tea. Double comfort ( as Kimmie from Art in the Red Wagon would say).
What are you grateful for this week?
