more animals Apologies again for the long gap between blog posts, things have still been hellaciously busy at the day job, but it's almost over. We finally finished weeding the library. In the past months, we've weeded: Large print (twice), fiction (thrice), audiobooks, nonfiction, ya (took out almost half of that collection), children's (nonfiction, fiction, and picture books), and reference. The only things we didn't do were the dvds and the music cds, both could use weeding but not as badly as the rest of the collection. The rearranging has already started, they came in Friday and put in the new circ desk. It looks really good. I'd post a picture but can't seem to get into the dayjob email from home. Monday and Tuesday will involve paint, and moving (almost all) furniture, rewiring for computers, moving books, cleaning (Dusting), and god knows what else. So needless to say, not much has been happening on the home front. I did do my taxes, and will get enough back to take both trips this year (to RT and to Lori Foster's even in Ohio- Yay!), and at some point I'll make a trip home to see my family. Once I recover from Monday and Tuesday, I hope to get back to a more regular posting schedule, as well as a more regular writing schedule. So I hope everyone has a great weekend, enjoys the Super Bowl, and (where necessary) stays warm.
more animals Today is day 2 of a 4 day weekend. As far as I can tell, this is the first four day weekend that I've had in 8 years that didn't involve annual leave (or some wench named Isabel *g*). Yesterday I actually went out in the below freezing temps to do some shopping (which involved Not finding more work clothes and then finding a couple of books at the BAM in VA Beach). This morning I woke with my back aching (not very bad, but with the feeling that it could become very bad if I wasn't careful) and spent the day surfing the net and watching movies on tv, and this evening I started getting my books in order (and adding books to my Library Thing- feel free to go look- there's a link on the sidebar). I'm currently reading Amy Knupp's new book (The Secret She Kept), which is very good, I'll probably finish it tonight. Not much to report on the writing front. Yet. The brain is still recovering from the week of weeding (the entire library at work), but I've been getting ideas, and need to start writing them down soon (they start taking over ya know). Before I get mugged by plotbunnies. So how has everyone been? Read any good books lately? I've been going through my books, and found several duplicates, and thought I'd offer them up for trade, if anybody wanted them. I can post them tomorrow. Just let me know. Thanks.
see more puppies That's what I've been doing this weekend, so far. I woke up early this morning with charley horses, in both legs. Went back to sleep and slept in, missing my writing group's monthly meeting. Leg muscles are still sore, but not cramping (yay). I hope to get something done tomorrow, at least. I did have some fun, at least. After work Friday, Jean and I went to the Waldenbooks that is closing, and we picked up some good bargains. I got: Rescue Me by Jaci Burton The Treasure by Beth Williamson Pack Challenge by Shelly Laurentson The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova The Host by Stephenie Meyer Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan Dawn Keepers by Jessica Andersen Veil of Midnight by Lara Adrian Devil Inside by Jenna Black Devil You Know also by Jenna Black (autographed) A Twilight Bookmark An Origami Kit and 2 small, 1 medium, and 1 large Picadilly notebooks Plans for the coming week: get my receipts in order so I can fill out my taxes as soon as I get my w2s, and organize my bookcases (it's also that time of the year when the wooden bookcases need another rubdown with lemon oil- to keep them from drying out). Next weekend is a four-day weekend for me, but no plans yet. Any suggestions?
