A Trip to the Library!!!11:15 AM
If there's one place I love more than my own kitchen, it's the library. Anytime I go anywhere in the world, my first thought is to scout out the nearest library, I don't know what it is, maybe I was a librarian in a past life (if you believe in reincarnation or whatever lol).
Seriously, the books, the smell of the books, even the librarians themselves bring a huge smile to my face, I want to run up and wrap my arms around them and yell out stuff like "I LOVE you, you mean the world to me". Of course I may end up arrested and in a looney bin!!!
This morning, I grabbed Nicholas and headed to the library on base. I had an idea of where it was but had never been there before so I guess in a way it was like an adventure. Did I tell you the base is separated by a main road????? The housing and commissary and BX, hospital school etc is on one side, then across the road is where you find all the squadrons, the work areas, the post office, library etc. It's pretty annoying in a way because you have gates everywhere, so you get out of the housing area and have to show your ID to get into the other side of the base and then vice versa when you return. Yeah, a little on the annoying side, but that's why they're building a bridge to go from one side of the base to the other. And with all this I just realized I went completely off track of what I was talking about...........you'll have to excuse me I tend to just say what comes to mind LOL
Nicholas is suddenly obsessed with Scooby Doo, I mean, he can NOT get enough of it. Scooby Doo movies, computer games, books, toys, you name it, he wants it.
That was part of our mission today, finding anything at the library that he would have fun with.
We came home with 2 scooby doo books and a movie. He's a happy camper.
For myself I picked up:
Cooking for Mr Latte by Amanda Hesser (A novel and a cookbook in one, I mean, come on, how lucky am I?)

She's finally found that nice, good-looking Christian guy who-gasp-actually wants to commit, but will she make it to the altar with her sanity intact?The Best of Amish Cooking

So anyway, I have been trying to open myself up to this new base and to trying to like it. Yes I say trying because I don't like the heat, I don't like the place, I don't like the people and of course when you're already going in with a negative attitude I doubt anything will make you happy. At this point they could be lining the streets with gold and I'm sure I would find something to say about it........wrong wrong wrong attitude to have. I'm changing it and I'm working on embracing the new base. We'll see how it goes, you know I like to babble about everything on my blog so I'm sure you'll be hearing about it more. LOL
One of the biggest changes I'm making is the time I allow myself on the computer. My eye sight has been deteriorating and then because they were so red, I was using Visine and Clear Eyes, which turns out is only making it worse. Great isn't it, I look like I'm on crack 24/7, it's NOT becoming at all. I've stopped with all the eye drops and this afternoon I'll be working on a new schedule for me, that includes assigned time for computer. NOTHING more and NOTHING less. There's no need for me to be on here all day long, it hurts my eyes, it hurts my back and it's just ridiculous.
I'm bringing out my fabric stack and my sewing machine and getting down to work. I also have a Recipe Scrapbook that I'm working on, I have books to read and the house to take care of, tons of recipes I want to try etc.....so finding something to keep me busy will definitely not be an issue.
I've also missed having my hour everynight, hubby keeps the kids and I get to crawl into bed and read a book or watch tv etc. You have no idea how it helps recharge me at the end of the day.
Anyway, I'm leaving you with what is around me, my thoughts etc. God Bless.
