Sometimes not sleeping well can have its rewards. I awoke early this morning and decided that I would check out a local community yard sale. This subdivision had half a dozen houses that were participating in the sale. However, I came away empty handed and so I drove around a little to look for new prospects. After several more duds, I turned into yet another subdivision with a yard sale for one final try.
Well, for a book lover like me, it was the mother lode. A media specialist from a local elementary school was selling thousands of children’s books. What an opportunity to update my grandsons library.
I was able to buy a total of 64 like new books on a wide range of subjects for just $l6. I must admit that I am planning on reading many of them (history and science) myself.
Here is one that I plan to use right away. It is a terrific cookbook divided up by Countries and what their food specialties are, including recipes, food tips, interesting facts and great photos.
There is a simple scone recipe in the England section which I will be trying. I also plan to make good use of the internet link which ties in with this book.
Now, if only I could find a yard sale with loads of teapots or cups and saucers. Maybe next time.
