What Has Been Going On?

Remember this sweet but sad looking daffodil plant?
Here it is today!
It's blooming!!
(Doing a happy dance)

My Hero!
Our dryer quit on us.

But not for long.
Thank you Tom!

The Little Free Library 
(click here for the post on the library)

Monica and Jack

This is a neighbor who lives in the apartments behind us.
Monica is the mom and Jack is her two year old son.
They come quite often to play at the library.

Mom: "Jack, let's go to the big park with the slide."
Jack: "I want to go to the library".

So, Mom packs up a backpack full of toys and food.
Mom bring her coffee and then gets a book from the library.
They both are content.
 Sometimes Mom gets in the dirt and plays with Jack.

 I don't know this lady but she comes almost everyday!
I've tried to converse with her but to no avail. 
I have decided to let her enjoy her quiet time.
She has her coffee and just sits for about an hour.

We get so many visitors everyday. 
Some come for a book.
Others drop off books.
Some just to look
some to sit!


  1. A lovely peek into your world, Christine. Enjoyed the visit.

  2. Dear Christine ... thank you for sharing the happenings from your home! Blessings ♥ Teri

  3. This is a great post..and I love the library. I truly need to do one of those one day.

  4. You gotta love a handy man! :)

    Your little library has really become quite the success! That is so fun that people use it regularly! Love it!

  5. So proud of your dryer repair man! You know that I love that husband of mine to pieces, but I don't think he could fix an appliance to save his life. (Shhh... don't tell him I said that.)

    As to Mom and Jack and the rest of your visitors to the free little library? I just love that too.

  6. And in another random comment:

    I want a big old SIMPLIFY sign like that in my house.

  7. I love that picture of your hero repairing the dryer! ♥ Made me smile.

    Thank you for joining the GRAND Social! So pleased to "meet" you.

  8. Every time I think of your Little Library I just smile. So many lives you brighten.

    Tom is WONDERFUL!! Such a blessing!

    Christine... I love the daffodil story... I can relate. Yep. I'm waiting to be standing tall and blooming. You extend hope. Thank you. blessings and hugs ~ tanna

  9. I love seeing your daffodil blooming. There's hope that someday I'll see flowers again too. That's great that Tom can fix things. It sure saves time and money! And of course I love the library. Especially that it's being used.

  10. Good Morning Christine, This Library is amazing!! The flower story is in all of us :o)
    Your Hero must love his sweet wife and it blessed him to fix your every need!
    My Hubby would of loved the cars !!
    You are a very precious Lady! Thinking of you today!
    Always, Roxy

  11. Hope you aren't anywhere near that mudslide! Thinking of you!

  12. Wow, what a difference your library has made, Christine.
    And kudos to that handy man of yours too!

  13. Jack reminds me that sometimes simple is all that is needed . . .

  14. Yeah for a fixed dryer. I just love your library.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  15. It is always nice to have your own handyman that can fix appliances. I like the hearts around him.

    And, as always, I really like your library ministry. What a great idea!
