4 facts about today:

1.  This morning I woke up two hours earlier than usual so I could attend a local annual rummage sale starting at 9:00 a.m. and hopefully find some interesting books there.

2.  I missed the bus because the traffic lights had an overextended interest in the color, red.

3.  When I finally arrived, there were no books there.  I was gently told that this year, they are saving all of their book donations for a spring book sale.

4.  I departed from the rummage sale grinning from ear to ear, holding two shopping bags filled with mostly new or almost new games, puzzles and learning materials.  The total cost:  $11.00.   I LOVE GETTING GOOD DEALS!  The children where I work will be delighted.

My nominees are:


All are blogs that I have recently enjoyed visiting!  Wishing all of my friends and readers a wonderful weekend.

Best regards,
