Joy

I did a lot of stuff today – see:

While I was standing in line at the library waiting to check out my book, I happened to be privy to observing a tiny little girl of about 4yrs, entering the library with her family. She seemed to be looking right at me with the biggest smile of recognition – and I smiled back as that kind of smile you just can’t resist returning. It wasn’t me she recognised though. She was seeing the Children’s library section which was behind me and down the stairs. You could tell she’d been in that little bit of heaven before.

I thought about what magic it must seem like to her Рa zillion trillion bright, colourful intereresting books Рall there for her to have a look at, to hold, to TAKE HOME for awhile, to sit at the little tables designed just for kids her size to look through and decide what treasures to take home with her and what would stay behind, perhaps for another day.

Even as a grown up, I find the library to be such a wonderful place and it’s still magic to me that with a wave of my library card I can take home a few books or other media to enjoy … for a little while.

11Feb23 Lunch Group at the Mt Compass Hotel.  This was the Fish Platter and I couldn't finish it.  I took what was left home and had it for my dinner.  It was really good.  I even took Per's salt & pepper calamari home too!  We plan to return as everything was lovely - the food AND the service.  @MtCompassHotel #2023pad #lunchgroup #lunch #MtCompass #mtcompasstavern #fishplatter
10Feb23 My Pink Tigger!  The pink is from my nightlight, which makes everything pink when it's bright when I first come to bed and it slowly fades to very dim through the night.  But isn't GaliLEO so cute stretched out and about as conked out as you can get?  #2023pad #catsofinstagram #pinkcat #sleepingcatsofinstagram
9Feb23  I thought I had possibly broke my arm, so got a ride to the hospital to get it x-rayed.  It wasn't broke (phew!), but it was badly sprained.  The day before I had, for 10 full minutes, stood at my boxing bag and beat the heck out of it.  That didn't help - so I had muscle soreness from that, but then I was carrying a water reservoir from my dryer and bumped into a wall, wobbled or otherwise was carrying it awkwardly, and that's when it started really hurting.  The dryer is self contained (no vents), so I have to drain the water that it removed from the clothes, when I'm done washing for the week.  #arm #fracture #hospital #sprain #2023pad #dryer #wobble
