Because I need to remember there *is* good stuff. Because being on the lookout for it somehow seems to help. Because it's better than bad stuff.
*sigh* I am so not in a good place right now. But I'm working on it. I know things will get better. I do. But in the meantime, I think I need to use this place to help me focus on the good stuff. Because it really is there, even when it overwhelmingly feels like it isn't. So anyway, for the next little while, that may be all that gets posted here.
*Today was library day. As in the day that Annie volunteers at the library, and I get to hang out there for two hours. We load up our bags to make the most efficient use of our time while there, but it's not as productive for me as it used to be since Gray is now present to provide a healthy dose of interruptions. :) Still, this is one of my favorite parts of our school week. You know, because LIBRARIES = AWESOME!
*Fresh picked garden goodness.
*Chris's apple butter! Mmmmm...
*I read three short, incredibly fun, graphic novels over the weekend while we were off "sort of" camping.
Annie had picked up these books at a used bookstore many moons ago...and when RIP rolled around, she put them in my pile and told me that I *had* to read them. Thank you, Annie! According to whomever decides these things, these are middle grade books. But they are by no means entirely tame. There's delicious darkness within the pages. And I enjoyed every minute of my time with them, more and more so as I read further along. Enough so that I'm really hoping I can come across the next volume more sooner than later.
*Also while pseudo-camping, I finally finished a farmers market bag for us. You know, just as farmers market season is nearing its close for the year. :P (Thanks for modeling for me, Annie.)
