The curse of the Place Hold button

I regularly look for books at my local library, and via the Libby App, at two other library systems I’m not local to but use with my Kindle.

Sometimes the books aren’t available because they have been checked out. But you almost always have the option to place a hold, then when it comes in, the app automatically checks the book out and emails you.

This week I hit the jackpot, I guess. Three books I requested all became available and were auto-checked out to me. Yay. Except I had just checked out a book! Now I have four books to read in three weeks. Better step up my reading game.

The books I have checked out are;

Tell me. Am I the only one this happens to?

Short and Sweet

I’m not really the type to set New Year’s resolutions. I always want to be working on bettering myself and our quality of life. I know I need to do things like exercise more, eat healthily and be more patient, always.

So rather than specifically have a resolution here are the things I want to focus on;

  • make the most of our acre and grow food, and actually eat it
  • shop local
  • focus on getting chemicals and toxins out of my life, that means you too, diet Pepsi
  • find my people, I’ve been a hermit this past year
  • blo more

In a nutshell, we are already planning what we want to grow, will refocus on shopping places like the local farmers market and the newly opened Earth Fare, clean up our eating with help from the previous two, and put myself out more in the knitting world and visit my family.

Short and sweet with the intent of accountability. Next time I’ll tell you a bit about my nephew’s visit with my mom. Anthony, too, is a huge fan of our chickens.

Until then I’m off to measure my gauge swatches on my January Gansey for the knit along I joined.

Happy Knitting, gardening, cooking or whatever brings you joy.
