Well, it was a good news day, and I love that kind of day! Despite Tammy being an enabler of the quilty Post-It notes, I resisted. OK --- I thought about it and could NOT find her e-mail with the source. So it must have been meant to be!
Nope -- the day was even better than that. I had to go to the library to pick up a book for DH. When I arrived, I looked at the other books, not that I have time to read. My audiobook will expire in the next three days, and there seems to be no time to finish the remaining 5 hours, perhaps this morning.
I even had a librarian come to me and say they had more of the lightning loans (no wait times on popular books) in another section. Alas, I didn't check, as I bet my account is frozen because of my lost library book.
I had a few minutes of "spare" time just before my final presentation last night and was determined to find it. I know I had it recently, but what could I have done with it? Then I spotted this cabinet, which sits near my chair in the office.

I started opening the drawers, not sure what to find in each. Most are empty, but the large one on the bottom was full of "current" stuff I'm supposed to take care of. Oops. I had forgotten that I snuck a pile of paper stuff in there to clean up, which is why there are boxes of paperwork, as this is not the first time I've done that!

I rifled through it and was getting close to the bottom with no luck, and then POOF --- there was the missing library book! Yeah!!

So I'll take that to the library today, and I see they tried to renew another book last night, and the system said NO. So either someone wants that book, or my account was frozen, and everything needs to be returned on the due date! No worries -- I have no problem returning the other book, as I'm done with it, and YES -- I know exactly where that one is.
As DH mentioned last night, we should both STOP using the library and read the books we have on our shelves!
Not only was it a good day for library books, but it was a fabric acquisition day! I need some fabric for a magazine, and I picked it up yesterday. You don't get to see more than that, but this collection is called Happiness by FIGO Fabrics. How could you NOT be happy with beautiful, cheery prints like that?

And I needed some white batiks (Barn Star Sampler), which I ordered from Lindley General Store in Ontario. Note -- they are an ONLINE store only.
