Zeeland Public Library used booksale

It is 3:35 PM Tuesday afternoon. It is a cloudy sunny chilly day here in West Michigan.

I am feeling tired this afternoon. I have had another hectic day. I got up around 7 o'clock AM this morning. I drank coffee Carol made last night for her Elders (House Visitation). I messed with our main computer after getting myself a cup of old coffee (fresh hot coffee is a blessing in the mornings).

Carol got up and made a pot of oatmeal for breakfast (I like a lot of brown sugar in my oatmeal). After breakfast we left for a used book sale at the Zeeland Public Library. I was in line for this used book sale around 9:20 AM. There was a small group of us waiting to get into the used book sale. We went to this used book sale last year. We found these used books at this used book sale to ADD to our library.

I had a quiet time at the book nook selling used materials and reading one of the used books I bought this morning titled, "The Provincial Lady in London" a novel by E. M. Delafield. I brought home from the book nook two used books to add to our library.

Well more could be written but I am wasted so I will close to carry my new used books down into the lower level. Throw them onto the heap.
