Happy Friday!

It's cold and miserable here, but that's OK - we need the rain, and the cold has killed off the grasshoppers. Win/Win!

I am very thankful that I live close enough to a Half-Price Books that I can visit it, but not so close that I'd be there every day. See......right now the entire store is 20% off. It's a dangerous place.....:lol: We went yesterday, and some more useful books.

The main one? A book called "We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution" by the Center for Civic Education. I'm on Ch. 3, and it's FABULOUS. I wish it were required reading for all our politicians.....not that it would do any good. :sigh: Ah, well - at least my kids and I will be well informed!

I'm thankful for my husband, too - he didn't groan when he saw the stack (hey, it was a SMALL stack!) of books on the table. :lol:

We're taking it easy this week and next - only hitting Torah Class. Week after next, we start in again.....but right now, it's light. Makes for a nice change.

Shabbat Shalom!
