"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

Which is Worse?

My desk after only 2 weeks as the new Children's Librarian


My bed after an afternoon of enjoyable R&R (reading, movie watching, yarn doll making, eating...)

I vote for Option 1.

I love the yarn dolls! Bob looks excited to be surrounded by so many women! ;)

I didn't know you are a librarian. Congratulations on being the new children's librarian! Are you at a public library? I am a librarian but I'm not currently working in a library. I was an interim library director for awhile and although I had a big desk it was always covered with piles of stuff and stacks of damaged books, etc. Your desk area in comparison is not bad at all! I hope you are enjoying your job.

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Which ever one people see more of! LOL!

Heidi said...

Christina T - yep! I'm in a public library. And I am loving my job!!!

Jess - oh, yes. But Bob is always happy when I'm around. Or is that the other way around?

SaraLyn - I know! I love the ones that I used more than one color yarn. Those came out really neat. Did I ever give you the yarn doll tutorial?

Serene - ha ha! So true!
