Hangin' with the Locals

We're blessed to live in a little community that's part of a much larger urban center.  This means we get all the charm of the small town life with the convenience of those essential things like Target.  

We spent this morning hitting our local haunts: the library, the thrift store (13 books for $11 - woo hoo!), and the feed store for some seeds for our garden (more on that in future posts, I'm sure).  

The kids had the best time at the feed store.  They got to pet a pig and a rabbit and even hold a chick (the fuzzy kind, not the sweetie-pie clerk!).  Afterwards, we walked down to the dry cleaner to pick up one of my dresses.  

We've been going at full steam the past few weeks (whatever happened to "those lazy summer days"??) and this morning was a welcome change of pace.  

The kids are headed to bed for a nap so I think I'll just amble over to the couch now and curl up with one of my bargain books.  Why break the momentum of relaxation?

Woohoo for thrift stores. Especially books at thrift stores. There's just no reason to buy a book at full price. You can always find them used. We need to compare reading lists. I have some new authors I could recommend.

I miss our informal book club! FYI - Celia Rivenbark has a new book coming out in August.
