*warning=video does contain bad words (but it’s really funny!)
I’ll won’t go all sloppy on you. At least not entirely. But I will share some positives that I’m going to focus on instead all the junk I unloaded earlier.
*I do get to sit on a panel talking with future librarians tomorrow. Despite some things in the environment, I still like the work I actually do. (When I stay focused on that, things aren’t bad at all.) And it was nice to be asked to do something like this. I also had an email from a former classmate who is considering going into library science. I am passionate about what I do and enjoy talking about it with others.
*The weather is starting to feel like fall finally. It was fantastic to be able to enjoy all the colors starting to pop out as I was driving back yesterday. And I’m pulling out sweaters and long sleeve shirts finally. There’s nothing better, imo, than cozy, warm clothing. Except hot chocolate…wood fires…chilly moonlit nights…football games…Halloween… You get the idea. All great autumn related things.
*My first book review should have been published by now. I keep forgetting to go look in our newspapers for it. Whoops! There is another opportunity that I’m exploring involving writing reviews for historical fiction books. (It would entail free books. What a terrible thing. *laugh*)
*Next weekend is Homecoming at LittleU. Homecomings are so much fun. And it means football and the homecoming musical. Going to see if DH would be interested in hanging out in LittleUtown this week.
*Every time I go home, I’m reminded of how much I’m loved. Three dogs and DH certainly cheer me up. Thinking about the next time I’ll be there keeps me going through the weeks. Our house outside of BigUtown is a haven.
*I found a delicious hot chocolate I’d not heard of at the local grocery store. It’s a nice treat on these cooler evening. Rich and creamy! Except for coffee I don’t drink too many hot drinks during the warmer months. But in the fall and winter, I like hot tea, cider, and hot cocoa. Starbuck’s has a tasty caramel apple cider beverage that I just discovered today that I’m sure I’ll get again.
*Although I don’t have lots of time during the week, I am carving out time to cook. I discovered a couple of years ago that I really enjoy trying out new recipes and making old favorites. Now it’s even more interesting as I find good vegetarian recipes that DH might like as well. (I also enjoy cooking for him.) I’ve even figured out a way to still have tasty sandwiches for lunch without fake lunchmeat.
*It’s been wonderful to keep the tv off some nights. I’m using my imagination more and rediscovering a deeper love of words. I’ll probably soon start exploring our CD collection at the library for some new music. It’s nice to reacquaint yourself with things you once really enjoyed. Didn’t realize how much of a brain suck tv can be.
*Halloween is coming up. I’ll be working on the goodie bags next week for our students. Trying to decide if I want to do something for the staff and faculty here at the library. I’d like to, but I’m not sure what exactly. Maybe I’ll just bake some treats and bring them in that day. Still need to get the tulle for my ghost costume. That can wait until next weekend. It’s an easy-to-make costume and shouldn’t take much time to assemble.
There are many more good things. Just a sample. (And I feel better!)
