So I took the weekend off: Early to bed, early to rise and a little bit of a catch up with myself. Just what I needed, only to discover that our internet is staggeringly slow. It rained in a torrential kind of way, and our internet just can’t handle the rain… so slow slow frustrating blogging over here. But a post is out and a week of bookish posts are good to go…
And in case you think getting a gang to actually just look at a camera like regular folk is as easy as all that…
Lovely Links from This Week
- I blogged about Nature Journals last week… I think it must be the season: Here’s another great post on Nature Journaling on Mother Nature Network.
- And Alisa Burke… What can I say: She has new online classes for the Northern Summer… would you take a look at The Traveler’s Journal. And then… you have to take a look at her journaling in Staying Inspired on the Road.
- I am all for this… just drop the perfection and do stuff. For Fun. Things Worth Doing Badly on InEarnestMag.
- For all the mother’s hearts out there… Meet Me at Mikes said it all this week.

Our Library Book by Book Project
So last week we delivered our library of books… and were we grateful for the boxes of books from all our readers. We opened them up with the school children and we had a blast reading with them… and then all the books were put back into boxes, because there is so much more to a library than having piles of books…
The hard work and behind the scenes of any library has begun, with unpacking and sorting anywhere between 1000 and 2000 books (never thought to count them!!!) into categories. Then the recording, labelling and covering in plastic will begin. My word we have given these poor teachers quite a job. They aren’t librarians, they aren’t trained as librarians and the amount of work that follows after a delivery like this is fairly formidable. But they have got stuck in and they are keen and eager and committed… and I love how excited they are to get all these books to their young readers as quickly as possible. We will keep you posted with updates!!!
That’s us… Hope you all have a fabulous week!!!
