I know, I know….I really rarely do stay HOME to homeschool. Usually carschool would be a more accurate description. The thing is, lately carschooling has been wearing us out, and so has traveling. So we decided to stay home today…..but then I couldn’t actually bring myself to stay HOME home….. because then I’d be to distracted with doing things like….canning, mopping, etc.
So…… we came to the library. I love the library it’s truly my home away from home. In fact I always tell my husband…..heaven has to be full of libraries…..because I can’t think (in my natural mind) of a more peaceful, wonderful place! It just CALMS me to be among books, I’m a bookworm. Books take me places I cannot physically go. I love them. Just being in a room full of books is calming to me, even if I am not reading. I have an extensive library at home, but it’s not as neat and orderly as the public library hahahah :).
I think it’s the knowledge that all these books are in an order…..I can walk to an aisle, glance at the call numbers and know exactly which books are where….Order gives me peace. I have to think though…. and say that in general, although I love all the order of the library, I prefer the spontaneity and surprise of real life.
So I’ll keep my chaos, but occasionally……I’ll slip away to the library and revel in the calm, peaceful order of it all.
