I have a book that I have been repeatedly borrowing from the local library. Mostly I just look at the pictures and wish I could give it more of my attention, but so far this year I have been called back to the need to be studying.
I had decided that I loved this book enough to put it on my birthday wishlist later in the year and just borrow it from the library until then, although once when I wanted to borrow it somebody else had already taken it and I couldn't get it for a week or so.
Yesterday, I took Tim on a date. We had donuts and watched the ice skating, then we spent a long time checking out lego at Target and Big W. Just as we were heading home I suggested we have a quick look at a large book sale display, with no intention of buying anything.
There it was! The book I've been wanting, for a fantastic price. So this morning my trip to school will involve returning a library book I no longer need.
Here's my prized purchase.
