Weekend Plans - Taking Ideas!

It's been a pretty rainy kind of week, and now that the weekend is here I realized I didn't have any plans. Whatsoever! How did I end up this way. Mmm. Housework and kids are getting to me or what! So anyways I thought I would drop by the library this evening and drop off some books due soon. Or maybe catch up on a beauty sale I know is happening today but haven't planned to go yet lest I get caught up in another downpour.

So yeah that's my boring weekend plan for Saturday at least. Guess tomorrow will be sunnier so a bit of retail therapy tomrrow sounds great, and possibly dinner out with the family to finish it off. There, that sounds more like a weekend unwinding session!

Library Woes!

It has been awhile since I have been hounding libraries. Not too long ago I was a book addict. Always glued to a novel, be it a piece of fiction or even philosophy. If I had an hour to spare I would pick up a book. And then as priorities changed so did my passion - at the least it took a backseat. And quite recently I rediscovered my love for the library. Which saw me frequenting the National Library right in the heart of the city.

But of course, my journey back to my hobby was not without issues. First things it was tough getting time off enough to be able to spend a few hours browsing the huge array of books and journals and magazines at the lending section. And when I did get a breather I headed down to my favorite spot to dive into the author's fantasies. But the problem began when I began to return and borrow new titles. I continued to receive reminders on returned items which began to irk me some. Thankfully though it appears to be some misunderstanding and with that resolved I am back to enjoying some quality reads, minus the niggling! And that's exactly how I like it.
