I am now paying for the siesta I took this afternoon; it is almost 3:00 a.m. and I am writing instead of sleeping. Steve and two of the four cats are sprawled out on the bed. Perhaps a king-size bed is not out of the question. The weather is slightly chilly, so I am donning Hello Kitty pajamas and curled up on the couch with a favorite grey blanket.
Oscar is taking advantage of the fact that I am in the living room; he stared at me with those gorgeous orange eyes and begged to be let out on the porch. So, I caved. He is now camped out on top of the cat condo, and probably will not move until dawn. Lucky cat; sleep still eludes me. Hopefully some almond milk will help. I now stand corrected: the two youngest cats are running back and forth and playing out on the porch.

I did not realize how much I missed librarianship until entering the library doors today. Everyone was helpful and kind and welcoming. I arrived at 8:20 a.m. today and brought flowers for the branch. I filled out paperwork, read circulation and policy manuals, perused Kirkus and Library Journal, visited library websites, and helped out at the service desk.
Thank you for your kind words and support.I really appreciate you! I will most likely be asleep by 9:30 p.m. Good night! xoxo
July has been a whirlwind! The last few weeks have been a blur. I have been coming home and then pretty much crashing after dinner. Also, I have been celebrating since Wednesday, and this new job is an amazing birthday present! It makes turning 45 a lot more fun. I feel incredibly blessed and humbled to have so many good people in my life. Thank you for being part of my life. :)
Also, a small group of us biked the Pumpkinvine (a nature trail in Middlebury)as a YA program after two cancellations due to stormy weather. Here is a link about the Pumpkinvine if you are interested: http://www.pumpkinvine.org. I'll be able to snap better pictures this fall when I'm not on a borrowed bike. ;)
