I feel like it’s never enough time to do much in a day.

What I do when I’m not at the library:  I love to spend time with my family. I have a huge family and we get together often, I love to travel and just recently I have begun to attend musicals and plays (which I love!), I of course love to read and I love to crochet. I have done many different crochet projects and I am now learning the strict protocols that is involved with crocheting caps for Chemo patients and premature babies, so within the next few months I will begin to donate my talents to help those who need it. 

What I’m reading now: Well I’m sort of reading it (does listening count?) on the Libby app in my car and while I’m crocheting. I am listening to the book The Mother of Black Hollywood: a memoir by Jenifer Lewis.
