My little bird friends were almost out of feed (tsk,tsk), and so I decided I would head out early for a trip to town, get some seed, go to the library, and pick up some small labels, which I use for the books that I put on the church library shelves. I was almost out of them, and I have a lot of books to prepare. The day was supposed to get a bit messy, but I managed to get there and back before the freezing rain began.
I went to this store, which has just about anything you could possibly think of, usually at a cheaper price. I think they get their things from closing out sales and such. This is where I got my labels.....but sometimes I just have to go on a buying binge. So I splurged, and spent about $13, on things I really didn't need now, but will eventually, I'm pretty sure, maybe in a month or six months or so...... I have this thing for pens, and paper, which seems weird as I sit here typing. But, I am a note-maker, I am always jotting down things, and, well, you get the idea.
Here is my treasure.....
In that pile of stuff is a chain, for my glasses, which I will wear, though it reminds me of old cartoons of the grumpy teacher. I has become a necessity, because I am always setting my glasses down, and then when I do need them, I have to go looking. I really only need them for reading and close up work. (with my pens and paper). It is great fun when playing the organ or piano, since I have another pair that I use to see the music, since it is far enough away, the reading glasses don't work. However, if I look out into the congregation with those glasses on, everybody is blurred. I am always changing glasses, since I need my regular glasses for reading the bulletin etc. Oh, it is great fun. So, I guess the chain was a necessity. The other things were just icing.
Now, I think I have to write a few notes to myself.....Where did I put my pen and paper? :)
