Another sign of the times....

January 25th, 2009 at 02:12 am

I went to the library today...and it was PACKED...I guess the word is out that this a frugal way to spend an afternoon...and a great way to find things to read and watch ...I have never seen the library like it was today.

I had a few overdue fines from my inability to get to the library...I gues $18.40 is a "few"...ouch. But uf I have to pay a fine, that is where Id want to pay it. I love our library. Ichecked out 4 books, including a Rachel Ray cookbook and the book: The Shack. Now I just need to find time to read....

I made a loaf of banana choc chip bread today since my bananas were getting overripe. And I made a roast for dinner. I stopped after the library and picked up french bread (it was still oven warm, yum!) and some lettuce...they had boneless/skinless chicken breasts on sale, so I got two bags (8 lbs for $12). A few other odds and ends came out to $31.56.

The library fines come out of my allowance...and the food comes out of the food envelope.

No grandbabies visited today...very quiet day. DD3 is staying at her sis's house the hub and I are home alone...this is happening pretty often anymore...feels like an empty nest.

Throat is feeling better tonight.

We will probably watch a movie on TV and enjoy the fire and p&q...oh and a glass of red wine.

Great day.

    Great price on the chicken breasts!
    Enjoy your quiet evening. It is these times we need to stock up and rest for those more stressful times.

    Nice evening--and we had exactly the same experience at the library today!

    Isn't that amazing? IIRC wasn't your library the one being shut down a couple of years ago?

    I went to the library today and it was packed as well. It's funny I am always late returning item to the library but I don't mind had it been another place I would be upset

    Baselle- I am not sure what IIRC is..but YES, our libraries were shut down a couple of years ago due to lack of funding...for about 6 was that same year, Oregonians recieved a nice 'kicker check' (tax refund) at the end of the year...(scratching my head over that one!) Good memory!!

    umm....IIRC = if I recall correctly??? if that is it...then yes, you absolutely do!

    I know what you're saying about paying library fines - I hate paying them, but at least I know it's going to a good place.

    IIRC does mean If I Recall Correctly. Big Grin

  8. baselle Says:

    yep - iirc is "if I recall correctly". ymmv! (your mileage may vary).

    oh...this blogging shorthand makes my brain hurt. Everyone would get a good chuckle if they knew some of my initial decoding thoughts

    My library has been very packed for the last few years. There are lines in the morning, waiting for it to open. The local libraries have a lot of dvds and I think that has a LOT to do about it.
