Reading Rainbow


Tonight's dessert:


Yum, yum, sugarfree gum! (A veritable smorgasbord)

I spent some time at the Victory Home warehouse sorting books - my favorite job. Look at all the old books I found:


It's hard to tell from the picture, but the one called "How People Work Together" has a neat coppery sheen. I love old textbooks. Well, I love old books. I try to keep the thrift store well-stocked for others who do, too.

And we offer plenty of not-so-old books, too.

It may be 80 degrees outside, but fall is in the air at the thrift store. Does anyone else get butterflies in their stomach when autumn arrives? It just takes a few orange leaves (even if they're fake), that woody smell in the air, and the sight of a pumpkin for my tumbly to get rumbly with anticipation.

Delicious autumn!
My very soul is wedded to it,
and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth
seeking the successive autumns.
~George Eliot

Autumn never excited me as a kid - probably because of the whole back-to-school, no long holidays part of it. But now I love the chill in the air and all the fall decorations.

I remember Danny Orlis!!! My mom had some of those books. I love old books, but since I have no time to read, I don't check the book section much any more.

I'm so very happy that God hasn't instructed me to give up sugar. I get lightheaded and dizzy from low blood sugar. A doctor once gave me a LifeSaver and told my mom to go get me a Coke because of it!

Ooh, I wish! Wish I had to give up vegetables. Or all things yellow. Or liver. Or tripe. BUT God's been helping me, and so far I've done well. We're going out of town for three days, though; could be rough...
