book sale Thursday, Nov 9 2006 

Today I got to go to my local library’s used book sale, and for $30 I got a load of good books!  I got a couple of children’s books to read to some of my art classes, one new one that I like called Art Dog, Froggie Learns to Swim, and Dinostory.  I have a few lesson plan ideas to go along with these books, so I’m thankful to find them for cheap! Of course I also took the chance to pick up an Andrea Bocelli cd that was cheap, and I’m currently enjoying it now 🙂  Merry Christmas to me!  Oh yeah, and thanks to that book I mentioned last time, I bought a gold eagle coin.  So, we’ll see how this collection comes along.

Collections Monday, Oct 30 2006 

I remember having about eight million collections as a kid, and as I’ve gotten older I’ve begun to look deeply into collecting things that could make me some cold hard cash.  I recently picked up a copy of a coin collecting book that was suggested to me, and I’m trying to decide if I’m interested in it enough to put some money into it.  I don’t have a clue at this point which ones are valuable coins, so I’ve got a lot of reading and studying to do.  But, at least I’ve matured from my troll collections.  Ha!
