 Yikes, it's already Thursday! This week is flying by. Actually, the whole month is flying by!

I went for my walk this morning. It was a lot colder. My walking friend is back from her broken foot. Unfortunately, the day after she got the all-clear for her foot she fell and broke her hand! Definitely more than a little accident-prone. Obviously, she is able to go for walks. The only problem she has is keeping her hand warm as she has to constantly wear quite a cumbersome hand splint. 

After my walk I stopped at The Dollar Tree to pick up a couple of items. I wanted some different highlighters to use when working on my cross stitch as the ones I have are old and yellow and difficult to see what squares I have crossed off. After that I stopped by the charity/thrift shop. They have been having quite a few craft items in. Nothing new there. I checked by the books - nope, I really don't need more - but I was so excited to find a couple of bird books. 

This one was a paperback book

There are lots of lovely photos and descriptions. It was .50 cents!

The second book is an absolute treasure. I was so excited to find it! It is all gorgeous pictures of birds and animals

I thought about using them in nature journals, but I'm not sure I can take the book apart. 

This book was a dollar. I snatched it up really quickly!

Once home I got my Thursday housework done and I managed to sort out the lighthouses I have left from Jane's house. I condensed them all and started listing a few more. I can't believe how few are left. I have decided to only keep a couple. I have nowhere to put them. I would also rather keep a few of the postcards from older times. They are certainly a lot smaller to store!

It's been icy outside this afternoon and evening. When I last went outside there was a layer of ice on the ground and the car. I'm hoping I'll be able to go for a walk tomorrow. I don't have to go anywhere else so it shall be a walk and home. 


  1. Your poor friend - what a chapter of accidents.
    Those books look amazing. What a find, especially the second one.

  2. Oh, your poor walking friend! You found a great bargain with those books! Sound like you are making good progress with the lighthouses, too! Well done!

  3. Those books are gorgeous. What an amazing find! If you are taking the books apart, you should perhaps frame those pics.
