In the Land of Unrealistic Expectations

On Fridays we head for a local library where our chess coach offers two hours of free lessons and game time with other homeschoolers (technically, it is open to anyone but since the hours are in the middle of the day, it is homeschoolers who show up each week). Finn and Lucy play chess while I get to chat..or whisper...with some other mothers and knit or crochet. Today was a quiet day with only a couple of other families participating so I browsed the shelves a bit.

Here's what I returned home with: Jamie's Italy by Jamie Oliver and The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky.

Uh-huh. Yup. You know, because what I will be doing in the next few of weeks is making innovative and delicious homecooked meals and reading huge Russian novels.

Can we see that picture of the water tower again?

Did I mention that it is the 10,000 gallon size? The largest one made in NYC?

That glass is always half full in my own special world that I live in...
