Thankful Thursday 18 May 2023

I can’t believe we’re halfway through May. The weather has been in the 60s for the past few days and I wish it could stay like this for the rest of the summer. Anyway, I have a lot to be thankful for today.

Last week, Ms. Sharon and I took a walk around Norristown. We found a used bookstore that supports the Norristown library. I decided to go in yesterday and I bought a book from a local author. Since I work part-time in a library, it doesn’t make sense to buy non-local author books since I can get them at the library, so I like to support the locals. It’s harder to put local publishing houses into the library system since their ISBNs aren’t as recognizable as something from a big name publishing house, so many libraries don’t carry local authors. They have to know them. That’s what I learned when I gave the library I work for copies of my books… it took them awhile to put into the system.

I digress, I’ve become friendly with the shop owner and yesterday she told me about an author meetup. The event is free and the first three people who reserve a ticket can get a free book. I reserved a ticket and got a book. I picked it up today and Kate greeted me. She greeted me like she was my best friend and we had a lively discussion. I know I’m going to be spending my lunch period in here after my walks, and I’m so thankful for this space. I know it’ll be a vibrant spot for Norristown and it’ll bring the community together. So grateful for this.

Of course, I am thankful for David. Yesterday he picked me up from the County and brought me to the library.

I was tired from working overtime on election day. I didn’t want to work the library, but here I am. When dad was taking me to work yesterday morning, we passed by this beautiful tree. I knew I had to get a photo with David under the tree.

Tired and moody and blah, but hugging him sort of made up for it. This is my favourite time of year (well, anything that can be photographed or make pretty photos).

You may feel tired but you can definitely tell your in love ❤️ 😍

I’m also thankful for my dad, my mom, friends, and co-workers. What are you thankful for today?
