Hello, Birthday, and the Pumpkinvine

Image
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. ;)

Here are some of the highlights:








Weekend

Friday was a busy but fun day. I woke up early and took care of Tiny (26 pound lover cat), hopped on the toll road, stopped at a BP gas station to pick up caffeine. I accidentally took a wrong turn and ended up in the next county! It's a good thing I left really early; I still made it to the 'bary on time. One of my colleagues drove us through the countryside and treated me to lunch. It was really sweet of her; I am touched. We also worked on crafts for next week.

Then, we came home, and I crashed pretty early--probably from the adrenalin of the new job and new schedule. I'm looking forward to going back on Monday.

The Bun is Back! The First Day

Hello! I am nodding off while writing this post, but I wanted to share my first day with you. It has been a little over six years, but it is good to get back in the proverbial saddle. 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
