Ah! So Much Accomplished!

library haul

You know those days when you somehow manage to get a ton of stuff done? Yeah, today was one of ’em. On a spur of the moment, Drew’s mom offered to take Noah for the day (Drew picked him up on the way home from work), so that meant I had the majority of the day all to myself. I decided to take advantage of this and use my time wisely and run a number or errands that I had been putting off. First thing, I scheduled a doctor’s appointment. I am way overdue, and was happy to get one with a doctor I really like! Then I headed to the library where I registered Jake for summer camp. The librarian also helped me fix my PIN number so now I can reserve books online 🙂 I founds some great books to check out including a wonderful vegetarian cookbook that should help me with ideas for CSA produce.

Next stop: Goodwill, where I dropped off a bunch of books and clothing donations. We’re slowly making our way through all the stuff we had “decluttered.” During the winter, I gave a bunch of baby stuff, including the boys’ old baby bedding to a donation our church was having, so that worked out really well! I also lucked out in the thrifting department. I’d been wanting one of these kinds of planters with the three small pots and the long catch tray, but the ones I’ve liked were all too pricey, but I found this one at Goodwill, brand-new-still-shrinkwrapped, for all of $5. Original pricetag, $19.99. I then picked up some herbs (sage, rosemary, and lemon thyme) at Walmart and couldn’t stop sniffing all afternoon.

It was a good day 🙂

    Ahh… LOVE days like that. We have an *awesome* library system here. I never knew how great it was ’til I moved away. I can get almost anything and lots of it on audio book. Let us know how you like the veggie cookbook. I’ve got a ton of greens I’m not sure what to do with.

    I love the library! I need to find our local one now and get signed up here. It’s nice to declutter. We just did that with the boys things. Nice photos!
