A Book and It's Cover
Speaking of disturbing, I just looked up my reading history on my local library's website. Apparently I read over 200 library books in the last three years. That means that the amount of money I would have spent would have been between $667 (paperback) and $2,000 (hardcover) yearly. BTW, I still buy some books, and get some as gifts. My point? I am grateful for libraries, because $2000 would blow quite a huge hole in my budget. My husband has never complained that I don't have a job, and we do just fine, but that is a lot of money! (Which, writer's, publisher's, book binders, printers, etc. all deserve btw!)
Now that the weather is getting nicer, I'm going to spend more time outdoors, reading and gardening and walking. I'll need more bug spray. I LOVE the smell of OFF!™ bug spray. I have ever since I was a little kid. I'd wear it as perfume, but Bob discourages that, especially in the winter. Oh well. Nobody is perfect.
Here is a taste of the disturbing future: next Tuesday you will have the opportunity to read a post where I mention rideable ducks. Enjoy the picture I'm leaving in your head.
