Teaser Tuesday: The Library Book by Susan Orlean


Teaser Tuesday is newly hosted by Ambrosia at The Purple Booker. To play along, just do the following:

- Grab your current read 

- Open to a random page 

- Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page 

- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) 

- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR list if they like your teaser. 

My teaser this week is from The Library Book by Susan Orlean:

It was as if, in this urgent moment, the people of Los Angeles formed a living library. They created, for that short time, a system to protect and pass along shared knowledge, to save what we know for each other, which is what libraries do every day.

Always Grateful

Image result for quotes about november

I LOVE this quote! However, I feel it is important to be grateful every day of the year rather than only the thirty days of November. My children and I keep gratitude logs. We take the time to write something that we are grateful for each day. I am always grateful for my husband, my children, good health and happiness. Then we look at our day and pick something additional that we are grateful for from that day - like the fact taht we went to tap dancing class or saw a gorgeous sunset or a pretty flower bed while out walking.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all who will be celebrating today! I am ever so thankful for the gift of my family - immediate and extended - and true friends. Life can be hard sometimes and it is the love and understanding and compassion of support of said family and friends that sees me through. I am most thankful for my husband and our children who bring me joy, love and happiness every single day - even when times are tough. What are you grateful for?

Have a happy day!

He had the expression on his face that I had been watching for months. It was a funny mixture of looking grave and not being able to get on with it. If the war lasted for twenty years, I wasn't sure I would ever get used to that.

I didn't know the answer to lots of the problems but I did know that a kind response was better than nothing. I hated having to throw the letters away.
