Worked Today


It was so quiet at the office, and I got about three times more done than I would have gotten through on Monday.

I parked in my boss' spot, the CEO, when I got there because the parking lot was empty. Also, when I'm there alone, I don't like parking in the spot with my name on it. Call it silly, but I don't want strangers to know I'm in the building. Anyway, he bopped in about 10:30, laughing and saying he saw that I got a huge promotion! LOL!

I stopped by the Fabric Patch on the way home for a quick run through of the owner's personal book collection that she has out for sale. I picked up a bunch of state quilt books, plus an old Jan Patek that I had not seen before, all for $35. I can't wait to relax and read through the books!

You've got some great books there - what a lucky find!

Wow!

Nice collection for such a small amount of cash! You'll have to tell us which ones you like the best. :)

What a wonderful haul Vicky! Grab yourself something to drink, put your feet up and enjoy them.

The North Carolina book is a very good one; I envy your having the Ohio one, is it good?

That's a great deal for $35. I thought I was going to be able to donate a lot of my quilting books in anticipation of the move but I'm finding that I'm not willing to give up most of them.

Luckily I'm over the magazines so I'm ripping patterns out and tossing the rest - that will clear up space on the bookshelf for all the books I'm NOT getting rid of.

Sounds like smart safety to me. What a great treat after working on Saturday. Have fun reading.

TEE HEE (At least you have your own parking spot!) Yesterday I parked near the building - but I am back under the tree today...

Hopefully I am as productive today as you were yesterday.
