The library

I treated myself yesterday.

After sitting in a cold, damp park for 7 hours, I stopped by Slate's Bakery and picked up a walnut cinnamon roll for me, and a small pecan pie for Lars. Yum. Yesterday was the annual "Day in the Park," a free family festival. I have a booth every year with some sort of activity, and then also sign up kids for the library's summer reading program.

The summer seems to unfolding in its usual cycle. There's the 4th of July, the Fresh Air Fund program, my birthday, work, and then fall. Every year the library has an entry in the 4th of July parade. We usually work off of some sort of theme, and we wheel book carts down the avenue in a variety of formations. This year we pimped our carts out as pirate ships. Mine is called the "Naughty Knitter." I'll get pictures.

I sometimes wonder if I spend too much spare time doing library stuff...

Sounds like you have a good time, and you are helping the public so I doubt it is a waste of your time. I love the naughty knitter. Too funny.
