- A visit to the library
Some of these Plinky prompts are pretty hard to answer. I feel like my interests and habits must be so different from most of the people in cyberspace, or at least the sort of people who answer Plinky prompts or suggest questions to answer. But asking when was the last time I visited a library - yes, I think I can handle this one.
My last visit to a library was ... let's see if I can remember ... three days and six hours ago. It was shortly before closing time on Saturday afternoon, and I was there to get my son and my husband the next books in the series they are reading, plus a book on gardening for myself.
I got Lost in a Good Book by Jasper Fforde for my son, though we had trouble finding it because someone goofed when they made the label for the spine of the book, and it was shelved under "Florde" instead of "Fforde." I got Blood of the Fold by Terry Goodkind for my husband, but had to make sure he didn't start reading it until he was done with his busy weekend (it may have been a relaxing three-day weekend for many of us, but it's a very intense time for a pastor).
For myself, I got All New Square Foot Gardening by Mel Bartholomew. I am determined to have a garden this summer, and actually have vegetables grow that I can put in my salads. I'm not sure just how closely I'll follow Bartholomew's recommendations (I've found blogs by people who do things more or less how he says, but think one can be a bit more laid back about some of the details than he is.) But I intend to follow them for the most part.
I also got a couple of magazines, one on cooking so I could look for good recipes (didn't find anything I was interested in), and an old copy of Smithsonian to read while I'm on the elliptical machine at the Y, so I don't have to depend on finding something interesting in their stock of magazines.
