escaping to mitford
thanks to karen, i am reading fiction again, after a crazy 2 month reprieve. i missed reading fiction. somehow, i always feel guilty though! i should be DOING something! not that my normal weekends are all that productive, but still.
anyway, she loves jan karon and the mitford series. i've been thinking about getting some of these books for YEARS. finally, this weekend, i found 2 at the thrift store, so i bought them. started on book #4, which bothers me slightly. i am a 'start at the beginning' kind of person. still, for 99 cents, i will compromise.
then, this morning, i went to my friend amazon, and got the first 3 books in the series, used, for under $9 total. that's $11 bucks for 5 books. which makes me seriously happy. i don't really know why anyone would buy a new book, when used ones are perfectly fine. then again, why do people buy new cars, for that matter? i know, i digress.
most of all, i like the town of mitford. book #4 started out with the folks of mitford looking for spring and putting their houseplants out. hooked me in right away :)) ha. i hope the rest of my hobbies are clearly illustrated as time goes on.
and of course, the underlying thread is God. nothing is for naught when that is the case. i am anxious to see Him through the eyes of father tim.
thanks for the tip, karen :)
on an unrelated note, i also bought 75# of bird seed this weekend. look for fat birds to start showing up on the back forty this winter ;)
