I was way too tired to post last night, so here’s a middle of the day post.
I made the most outstanding discovery on Sunday. I was walking around, freezing my butt off, when I decided it was too cold to continue. So I went in this “store” that was open on Sundays. Turns out you can get books from this “store” for free if they give you give them a lot of personal information and they give you a card. I got a library card on Sunday. Who would have known. I haven’t had a library card in years. In fact I don’t remember the last time I was in a public library. This one is very small but they have the latest best sellers and it’s cute and quaint. I’ll take pictures this weekend and post them. So I checked out two books. One I needed for my class and one is just to read. I’ll let you know how they are.
On another note, I have had to find a hobby to keep myself busy. I have LOTS of free time here in Iowa with not much to do. So I have started crocheting again. My mother taught me to do it in when I was in 6th grade. That winter we missed almost two months of school and I was bored, so she sat me down and taught me the basics. It’s not hard and I managed to teach myself the rest. I haven’t crocheted in years. In fact, it took a couple of days to really get used
to it again. So now I am making scarves for all my friends. I have made 7.5 scarves since I have been here. Two of them I mailed out last week and the other 5 were mailed yesterday to both sides of the country. It’s been kind of fun. I crochet while I am watching TV and it doesn’t feel like I am wasting my time. I have one more to finish and yarn for about 20 more so I have enough to keep me busy until it gets to0 warm to make scarves and then I’ll have to move on to something else. Here is a picture of the scarves I finished so far.
