Anyone who really knows me knows I love books. Books of all kinds. Old books and new books, non-fiction and fiction, novels, mysteries, cookbooks, and how-to books. I just love books! And today, I got to go to the library with Sam and Elijah, the sons of my good friend. It was great fun. We stayed maybe a touch too long - they were really tired by the time we left - but teaching kids to love libraries is opening up such a world to them! Some people get overwhelmed by the number of books at a library, but I love knowing that as long as there are libraries, I will always have more books to read. It's inspiring! We checked out kids books for Sam, Tamara got cookbooks, and I got three Pride and Prejudice sequels (I'm on a Jane Austen binge! :)). And the piano lesson that's scheduled for tonight was moved to last night, so I think I'm going to start one of those books tonight. :)
The greatest thing just happened! I talked to a piano tuner to make sure I wanted to recommend her to my students and while talking to her I mentioned that I don't have a lot of students and are looking for more students and she said that she tunes for several teachers close by here. She said that they have told her recently that they are pretty full for the fall, so she'll give them my name and number so they can pass my name on to people that contact them for lessons! wow! that's amazing. (i'm sure i should edit that rambling missive, but you guys don't care, right?)
I had the most wonderful surprise yesterday afternoon. Crystal, a friend that moved away last year, dropped in. So we got to sit and catch up with each other for a little bit. I love surprises like that!
