One of the things I bought is a snake plant. I read somewhere that they are hardy houseplants that help filter toxins out of the air. This one is in a tiny pot so I will have to transplant it to give it room to grow and be useful.
Sometimes I think it would be nice to be a librarian. I like to keep things neat and organized, I don't like excessive noise, and I love books. If I had a little more time and energy I might pursue a degree in library science (you need one to become a librarian, evidently). Oh well. In another life maybe.
