"And to this purpose"

"If people like to read their books, it is all very well, but to be at so much trouble in filling great volumes, which, as I used to think, nobody would willingly ever look into, to be labouring only for the torment of little boys and girls, always struck me as a hard fate; and though I know it is all very right and necessary, I have often wondered at the person's courage that could sit down on purpose to do it." (In other words: rambling analyses, opinions, ideas, views, and comments from an English major, Essay/paper-writing enthusiastic, Austen-loving Master Librarian on, well, Jane Austen...and a whole lot of other things, too.)

"Celebrated Passages are Quoted"

Heidi's favorite quotes

"What is it really like to be engaged?" asked Anne curiously. "Well, that all depends on who you're engaged to," answered Diana, with that maddening air of superior wisdom always assumed by those who are engaged over those who are not."— L.M. Montgomery

What's Been Up with Me (some of it)

If you'd like a hint of what's going on with me at work, this is from my LDS blog yesterday:

Day 53

So much to be grateful for at the end of this day:
  • I got the splinter out that had been in the crook of my left index finger for about 6 hours
  • I had leftover dumplings for my dinner
  • I had leftover Sis. E.'s potato salad (so good!) for a snack
  • I got some books added to the order
  • I got a pile of books pulled to prepare for my soon-to-come storytimes.
  • The headache didn't get much worse
  • I had a good excuse to not go to the singles' FHE where the headache would have inevitably gotten worse and where I would have had to deal with the stress of my social anxieties (and annoyances)
  • My fabulous bed now awaits to welcome me with blissful sleep and take away "the Monday Migraine."

So glad you got that splinter out! It sounds like the children's room needs a good sander or something. I can bring tools from home if necessary.
