Unplanned Library Stop

I had a dentist appointment today at 2:30 p.m.

Just prior to going to the dentist I wacked my fingernail on my desk drawer at work and broke it (shouldn't that be a worker's comp claim? LOL).

My next nail appt. is not until next Monday. I can't go that long without a decent nail. So I called for an emergency fix. Got an appt. at 3:50p.m.

The dentist appt. was a quickie just to see if previous procedures worked (they did) and I was out of there at 3 p.m.

That left about 45 minutes between the dentist and the nail technician, so I went to the library.

It's been months since I've been to the library. I used to go every week or two.
I did not even know how to use their new computer system.

After finding an old high school friend (who works there) to help me, I finally got these books.

I've been wanting to read more of the Jennifer Chiaverini quilt novels and went there with those books in mind.

As you can see I found 3 of them and a couple of garden books.

Now if only I can find the time to just sit and read!

I did arrive at the nail salon 20 minutes early and started reading The Runaway Quilt.

On Friday after work DH and I are leaving town for the night so I can read for 2 hours in the car while he drives.

I just need a few more hours in each day.


  1. I used to love to go to the library...since I joined the Blog community I find I don't read near as much as I used to. But, those books look interesting.

  2. Tammy,
    that is exactly what happened to me. I just have not figured out how to blog and read books at the same time.

  3. I used to do most of my reading when breastfeeding my babies. Then I read while pedaling the stationary bike. Now that I'm "between bikes" I'm not getting any reading done, either. But I can't read in a moving vehicle--that makes me carsick.

  4. I was in the library a few months ago to help Sean look for books on the Battle of Brandywine. I checked out their craft books and cookbooks and I have a better collection than they did. : )

  5. BTW, I read a few nights a week right before I turn off the light. It takes me forever to get through a book, but that's what is working for me right now. I read faster when it's a book I really like. The one I am reading now is almost like a fantasy, so I'm not into it as much.

  6. I agree we should get worker's comp when we break a nail at work.

    As for reading I am an avid reader and always read for awhile in bed before turning off the light. Just like Dianne it can take me forever to read a book, which of course is my excuse for not reading the full version of War & Peace.

  7. I used to read a lot but now I'm so busy with my other hobbies, magazines are about the only thing I read now lol I love any kind of decorating magazines as well as the celebrity gossip ones!! I haven't gone to the library in ages but now you've got me tempted to go find a few gardening ones!!

  8. sounds like we are all spending too much time on the computer and not enought on the books! LOL
    Kathy, I used to use the treadmill at the gym for 1 hours every day and I used that time to read also. I got a lot of reading done then...too bad the fitness addiction left me....
    CG and Dianne, I have tried to read in bed, but I fall asleep after the first page!
    Pea, I love the decorating mags, too....actually I like all kinds of mags...cooking, gardening, women over 40 mags (MORE), etc.
