a visit to the library

i briefly went to the library today and somehow managed to leave with a whole lot of books. i probably got carried away but i’m pathetically excited to dig in and learn about bread making, soap making and other made from scratch goodies for your home. i’m already thinking of christmas gift ideas for next year (some projects take weeks to complete so it’s too late for this year).

it was a long work day, but i came home to fresh salmon patties made by randy (i caught and canned the salmon) and now i’m sitting on the couch with a warm mug of chai tea, ready to peruse this stack of books:

which one to read/glance at first?

feeling tired yet thankful.
