It's been a longish, busy day and I as I am just getting around to blogging now, I figured I'd just share a quick story from tonight before I go to bed (yes, it's 9:30 and I'm already ready to go to bed).
Tonight was the monthly book club meeting at the library. I went to September's meeting and enjoyed it, last month's was cancelled because of the hurricane, and so tonight was the next one on the schedule. I didn't really enjoy the book but I wanted to hear others' takes on it, and apparently I was the only one who didn't like it. Go figure. Not only that, but the one character that I did like, no one else liked. Anyhoo, that's not why I'm a little out of control.
See, the book club meeting ended a little early, and as we were leaving, we had to walk past another room that had some people in it. As I walked past I saw that it was a group of ladies who were knitting! SO excited to find fellow knitters, I poked my head in, got some info (sadly, tonight was their last meeting for the year), gave my name and number, and was then invited to sit and hang out. So I did. For almost another hour.
What a fun group of ladies! We chatted and ate cookies and chocolate covered pretzels. We drank sparkling cider. I had such a good time I almost can't wait for January to come and the group starts up again. So basically, instead of spending an hour at the library for book club, I spent almost 2 hours at the library partying with a group of knitters. I'm so happy now Josh made it home a day early from his trip to DC so I could go.
