my new chair

I was at Salvation Army last week for my usual run through, when I found this:

A Lazy Boy recliner made in ’98, that looks like it had never even been sat in, for $40!! I just looked up new ones online, and they cost $435 new. Yeah, I’m feeling pretty smug. To me, it’s an even better deal than the $40 tv I got a couple of months ago.

Here are 6 unspectacular things me.
1. I have avocados in the house, and I don’t like to share them.
2. I still have my military ID dependent card.
3. My favorite website is Ravelry. My favorite community is the Completely Pointless and Arbitrary Group.
4. I’m a night owl. Always was, always will be.
5. I want to live on lots of land.
6. I plan to learn to spin wool this year.

Janice Holt Giles

I’ve been struck by the reading bug this summer. Specifically, I want to read(and buy) all of Janice Holt Giles’ works. I first read Hannah Fowler when I was 13, and it has become a tradition for all of my daughters to read, and own this book. Hannah Fowler was really only supposed to be a “bridge” book for Mrs. Giles. She had a book in mind, The Believers, and needed a sort of prequel to it. Hannah became, for readers, her most loved book.  One summer, when Joni was still living at home, we got all of the JHG books we could find out of the library to read. I would like to do that again, and have been looking online for original copies of the books. The University of Kentucky has reissued her books in paper back, but I want to find the old copies of the books. If I was ever to be told I had to give up all but one of my favorite novels, I would keep Hannah.
