Because I want to live in a bookstorePosted: January 12, 2012
I’ve always wanted to live in a bookstore, especially the big, rambling kind like the Book Loft which has 32 rooms of books, and you’re led from one room to the next as if following a bird or a butterfly. Or the Book Barn in Chester County, Pennsylvania where I swear you can get lost and it might be years before they find you again. I exaggerate a little, but it is a wonderful place to ramble and browse.
Since I don’t live in a bookstore and it’s unlikely I’ll live in a bookstore, I have to settle for liking videos such as the one I brought you today. I have seen it on a couple of blogs and over at Facebook (because I know and/or follow other people who would love to live in a bookstore).
It’s raining here in the Bogs today. The surface of the pond is thawing. There are very few patches of snow left. It’s all melting with the rain.
I’ve spent a good part of the day decluttering my picture library. It’s amazing how quickly things can get cluttered on the computer. Today’s photos are courtesy of the recent archives (January 1 – 8). It’s too wet and squishy for a long walk with the camera. We’ll just stay in and have a look at recent times past. It gives me a good excuse to bring out some of the photos that didn’t make it to the blog for one reason or another.
The rain will be changing over to snow tonight. According to weather.com it will be a Big Snow Event. Often that means for places other than the Bogs because we’re not really on the radar of the major news and weather media. Besides, we are used to Big Snow Events, and I’m sure the guys that drive the snow plows are looking forward to having some work to do.
That’s about it from the Bogs for today. It’s a slow day with not much to ramble about. If we do happen to have a Big Snow Event, I’ll let you know. We can all go sledding or snowshoeing or cross-country skiing or build snowpeople and snowforts and have a big snowball fight. For those less inclined to play in the cold, we’ll get a fire going in the fireplace and you can relax there, staying warm and toasty. Feel free to browse the library. I’ll be decluttering that soon and there are a lot of books that will need to go.
Letting Go: Of old photos, freeing up space for something new.
P.S. This just in… A great big THANK YOU to Four Blue Hills for nominating me for the Kreativ Blogger Award. I am honored that you like my blog so much, and appreciate the recognition. 🙂 Please excuse me for not participating fully. I can’t think of 10 more things to tell the world about myself, and I would have to nominate almost all of the blogs I’ve been enjoying lately.
