Sunday with my daughter

Both of my children are adults now, and knowing that, spending time with them is an opportunity I cherish. When Jenny asked me if I anted to go to drive up to see her on Sunday, of course, I said, yes! I got ther in time for lunch. We ate at a local restaurant called Olive Garden for lunch, then, on the way back to her condo, we made a stop at her library. When Jenny was little, my husband used to take her to the library. They were always gone for a very long time. When they would get back, I would ask why they were gone so long. Dan would always say, "It's hard to take the worm out of the garden." Jenny was, and still is, a book worm. When she has time, she always visits the library, her garden. Who can blame her? Outside there is a pond! Inside, there is a beautiful, botanical garden. There's a small waterfall. Who wouldn't love that library! What a beautiful place to visit! I wish we had a library like that. I'm so envious. Oh, it was one of the places some beads were released.

It looks like you had a fabulous visit with Jenny, Mallory.
If the Library here was like that - I'd never be home! It looks like a slice of paradise to me - books & gardens - yep my idea of paradise indeed.
what a wonderful place to have released a bead :o)

Ditto what Deb just said! Books + that beautiful scenery= paradise. Lucky Jenny, having a mom to come up for the afternoon and stop by the library, too :)
