Friday Five

 1.  I was at my new favorite shopping place yesterday--the antiques barn.  I brought home some new insulators for my collection.  I spent alot of time with a wooden and metal milk crate, trying to visualize where it would go and how I would use it...and I decided not to bring it home.  Ah, but maybe if it's there the next time...
 2. Last Friday, I had some time to kill while I was waiting to meet my mother-in-law. I was at an outlet mall, and I went in to the book outlet.  I've been in it before, and I know it's usually full of books I've never heard of or wouldn't want.  Even the "going out of business" sign on the door didn't get me excited until I walked over to the crafts section.  See that Mason-Dixon book with the $9.99 sticker on it?  I paid $2.00 for it!  The Gentle Art of Domesticity--that I've been trying to find in my library for a couple of years?? Two dollars!  It was very exciting.

 3.  These are my library books, not the kids'.  I plan to read an insane amount of children's literature this summer--why should the kids have all the fun?  And if they want to copy me, even better!
 4.  Chocolate chip.  I just don't think there's any reason to make any other kind of cookie.
5.  Not nearly as romantic as a clothesline, but that's okay.

This weekend will be much more relaxed that the previous one.  I am hoping to go to the pool and maybe go strawberry picking.  That's it!

I love your insulators. They're a real find. I'm sure when the sun shines in they look amazing! And "Anne of Green Gables" is an all-time favorite of mine. Happy summering!

What fun! I'm reading some classics this summer. I've got To Kill a Mockingbird on my list...I've never read that. Hope your week is off to a good start. And I'm with you...chocolate chip cookies are the BEST!
