A New Stack of Library Books
There is a librarian who watches out for me because she knows I like to make things. I am so warmed by her kindness and interest. She will catch a book going through the system and put it aside for me. When I went to the library to pick up some other books I had reserved (The Homemade Pantry, Vintage Cakes), there was a surprise from her rubber-banded to the others: a mending book. My heart jumped. Mending! Codified! Explained! Photographed!
I didn't get to have a Sunday afternoon on the couch with the books because I was at the last Christmas gathering with my dad's side of the family. I truly didn't mind. They are lovely, polite people who know how to make conversation, so it's truly enjoyable to spend the day with them catching up.
So these books will be my bus reading this week and next. Have you read any of them?
