Thursday morning I woke up very hungry.
I ate some produce from my inventory, and sat down to read the paper, which was fairly boring,
except that I found out that there was a new baby girl in that family whose garlic I always steal.
I got a message that there was a 15% off sale at the bookstore,
but I wasn't sure whether that meant I would get any discount additional to what I get via my Bookstore Bargainer reward.
Because the only place I can sit and read is my toilet, I priced a nice armchair,
but decided it was way too expensive for me right now. (I still have so many recipes to buy!)
I was committed to mastering Cooking as soon as possible, so went back to the library. I was very surprised to find Jon Lessen there--
he gave me a quick wave and told me he didn't want to disturb my studying. This guy is so good!
I sat down to continue reading "Cooking Vol. 3",
and in several hours got to Cooking Level 9.
I tried to keep going, but I had barely made a dent in my Level 10 study before I had to eat something out of my backpack,
and go home to sleep.
I got up before 8:00 a.m. on Friday, starved again--this is getting to be an unfortunate habit!
I harvested my garden, and ate some of the produce,
including watering my plants (I'd had a wish to do so, so I'd left the sprinklers off for a day).
I upgraded my Very Nice onion plant to Great,
and returned to the library. I met a nice older guy named Rocky Guthrie--he's Brave, Frugal, and a Perfectionist.
I sat down to resume reading "Cooking Volume 3", finished it (finally!) and maxed out my Cooking skill!
(I was in the bathroom when this picture was taken....) Now all I have to do is read and learn all those recipes!
I went home to sleep before 2:00 a.m.
