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 – a zillion trillion bright, colourful intereresting books – all 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.

21Sep20  Quick and easy pasta and veg made with @vettapasta’s new Ready Pasta Fibre Penne.  I wanted to have some pasta for dinner but was having leftovers so didn’t feel like cooking. I had a packet of the Ready Pasta so made that, microwaved my green beans and then added parmesan and garlic butter to give it some WOW.  Perfect dish for one person and all done in under 5 minutes.  It went well with my leftovers and I had my veggies too.  The pasta is a winner. It tastes exactly like I’d made it myself, and saved me a heap of time too.  #2020pad  #cookingforone #cooking #easypastaandveg
22Sep20  New vape.  This is a beautiful Rainbow Eleaf iStick Rim C.  I ordered it in June and finally received it today.  It came via the Netherlands so of course it was opened by Border Force.  It perfectly matches my rainbow Crown 4 tank.  The “C” in the name is because it charges using a USB-C cable and is fast charging. You add your own battery to it so I can have a spare ready to go. It’s small, fits well in my pocket and even though the sides are quite smooth the back has a rubber strip on it so grips well. It’s early days but I think this one is winner.  #2020pad #vaping #vapegear #eleafistickrimc #uwellcrown4tank
17Sep20  I had an appointment at Flinders today for my carpal tunnel issues and a friend took me and brought me home. I’ve had a change in my meds recently so until I’m completely used to them, I get a bit befuddled. I’ve done a lot of dumb things this week but losing my keys at the hospital was right up there.  I had to have neighbours (who have a set of my housekeys) let me in.  And then, a few hours later I double checked my purse and there they were. NOT lost, after all. YUP. It’s been that kind of week.  #2020pad #keys #lostandfound #frustratedbutgrateful #befuddled #medchanges

21Aug20 BUNNY!  This cute little bunny blankie belonged to somone really special to me.  They used to sit holding it sucking on two fingers.  When I ran into Bunny while visiting family, I first took it to the original owner who let me have it as a keepsake. So sweet. #keepsake #cf20 #muchlatergram #bunny #fisherpricebunny
