October In A Nutshell – Letting Go Of Old Dreams For New Ones

Once again, I had another rather ‘unproductive’ month.  I mostly played catch up.  But a few key events happened. Tweaked my blog design a smidge.   Went to our libraries massive bi-annual book sale. And yes, I got gobs and gobs of beautiful books. And behold –  the book haul! Three classics – I’m especially pleased with lovely editions of…
