Our local library keeps some pretty strange hours:

Sunday: Closed
Monday: 1 p.m. - 9 p.m.
Tuesday: 1 p.m. - 9 p.m.
Wednesday: 11 a.m. - 9 p.m.
Thursday: 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Friday: 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Saturday: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

I really need to commit these hours to memory so I quit wasting trips to the library. I'm hoping that writing down the hours here will help. But maybe I should find a blackboard and do lines à la Bart Simpson. Essentially what I need to remember is that unless I want to browse with the hordes on Saturdays, I must time my trips for Mon.–Wed. evenings after work.

I turned in my last set of library books on Thursday after work, and of course they were closed so I couldn't check out more books. And of course I am going through serious reading withdrawals now. On top of that I received a notice from the library around 6 last night (after they closed) that a book I have on hold is available for pick-up. And they're closed today, so I must wait.

Sure, I could re-read my favorite blogs. But like me, most of my favorite bloggers haven't been posting as often as they used to, and let's face it, it typically takes 5–10 minutes to read a blog post and I want a book. A cohesive story that I can read for an hour or more at a time.


I experimented for lunch today and I really liked it—sweet potato oven fries and an open faced idunnowhattocallit sandwich.

It's a seeded sourdough bread with a homemade hummus spread, sliced orange bell peppers, sliced avocado, and provolone cheese that I tossed under the broiler. MMMmmm


  1. You had me with the melted cheese and avacado! Yum.

    I feel you on the book withdrawl, too. With sick kids this week, I have been bookless since last Sunday. Sad. I feel your pain.
