So, I've blogged for seventeen consecutive days. I really enjoy blogging and the social media craze has not deterred my enjoyment of blogging. 

As s young girl I always wanted to write, be a librarian or photographer. I am not a gifted writer, I do not have stories and characters come to me. I enjoy putting words down, and of course I love writing about my family. I am creating a journal of our lives. Maybe someday I will be able to afford to order a book of the old blog out as a print momento for my crew. When I began on October first, I just wanted to challenge myself to blog everyday for one month, without announcing or getting on board with a 30 day challenge deal.

Now, on to our day. I have fallen back into my stay up later and sleep a bit later. Must change that this weekend.

Benjamin built this at piano.

We stopped at the library after piano. Benjamin is working on puzzles while the girls
look for books.

One of the quilts hanging in the children's room. This is North Pole, dontcha know?

The turtle quilt, why turtle? Keep reading.

This is the library turtle, Hawkeye. He lost an eye in a fight before coming to live at the library. 

The logo or mascot or some thing for our library.

The large stuffed animals that live at the library, they gross me out as they must harbor germs and viruses. 

Dinner was easy peasy, precooked and frozen taco meat, frozen refried beans, chips, cheese, sour cream, salsa, lettuce and tomatoes. Yep, I had taco salad. 
I read a book today, all 319 pages. Tonight was swimming so I had an hour of uninterrupted reading time. 
Good night from the Pole.


  1. I didn't know that about the turtle!

  2. Sounds like a great day. So glad you are completing your challenge. I like reading and seeing about your days. And that Christmas quilt is so pretty.
