 I love to read.  We have the most wonderful library in downtown Ft Wayne.  It is huge and I could and do spend hours in there. There is also a good branch library close to my house that I pass daily.  I don't have as much time to read as I would like.  There are so many other things I must do.  I always have a book with me in case I find extra time to read.  Like waiting at the drug store etc.  I don't mean to check out so many books at a time but they just leap into my hands.  Some are by favorite authors, some just looked interesting.  Luckily my library lets you have them for 3 weeks.  Then you can renew them for another 3 weeks.  And I can renew on line which is even better.  If I ever have to be snowed in somewhere,  I hope it is the library.  I have no intention of buying an E-Reader.  Browsing at the library is half of the fun.  I enjoy holding a book in my hand to read. Growing up during the summer I would read 5-10 books a week.  I was lucky that we had the library truck come into our neighborhood every Wednesday morning at 10:30.  When it was summertime the library truck man would make sure to stock more kids/young adult books since we were out of school.  You can see what I have read so far this year on my books read page.  I hope to read 100 a year but so far I am off the pace.
This week I worked on Garden Seed Packets.  I am down to the last one.  Should get this finished next time it is up in my rotation.  I am kitting up a new one to replace this one.  It is a HAED.  It will take me years to finish so I need to get started.  I will have to make a trip to my LNS to get a piece of material big enough.  Who knows what else will leap into my hands there.  I must have friendly hands as so many things like to leap into them.

Next weekend we travel to Cedar Point to visit my daughter.  I don't like to ride roller coasters so I usually avoid amusement parks.  But my daughter gets free tickets so at least I do not have to pay to stand there and watch everyone else ride.

Oooooh, Cedar Point sounds wonderful. I've never been there, but always wanted to go!! Good progress on Garden Seeds. I'm guessing it's a carrot? My mom is growing carrots this year. And what HAED are you replacing it with?

One square left!!! You will whip this one out and then replace with a BAP!!! I love Cedar Point, but haven't been in years. I love the roller coasters!
