Because I do not work on Fridays, I enjoyed an additional beautiful crisp day for my weekend.
I ran to Half Price Books to look for a couple of easy sewing books for the girls at school. I did find some good ones, then I wandered over to the Children's Books. I have ALWAYS loved Children's books. Even before having children I had a collection on a shelf. I have always been a reader & I thank my Mom for taking us to the Library every couple of weeks. During the summers of Junior High we had the Book Mobile park across the cul de sac. I was thinking about picking up Early Readers & Story Books for my Daughter, Emily. She will soon be teaching and wants to build her library supply. So hard not to buy dozens! These books are awesome! Always in beautiful condition. I picked 9.
I will give them to her today after Church.
Yesterday Hubby & I went back to Ball State for more tailgating.
It was great fun. I love our friends, the Boyd's, and we had fun catching up. Hanging with the "Baby", Annie, is always a treat. She showed us the house she signed her 2012-2013 lease with. Amazing she is just starting year 3 at BSU, and already finalizing plans for year 4 living. But if you want a good place, that is what you do. She and two current roommates will join four more for a house of SEVEN Roommates!
When I got home I snapped a couple of photos of a sneak peek of our lovely foliage. It's already starting and soon will be full bloom.

I must make sure I make a trip to Brown County this year for the full effect. It is quite spectacular and I must share it with you this year.
Today is rainy. I still love it. One of the best things about living in the Midwest is the change of seasons. We really get it all and I feel blessed.
