Now waiting on the results of two interviews. A weekend of work ahead, and then all the busy next month. Fortunately, some of that busy is puppy-watching again. Yay, puppy-time. πŸ˜‰

Work is going along smoothly. Quiet day at the library today. Another flat of books arrived at the warehouse. Two more layers of boxes from the previous flat to go. Lots of old paperbacks.

Finished Star Beast, and am now working on First Lord’s Fury at work. Onto Changes at home. I’ve got an anthology downloaded, too, Rogues edited by R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozois.

Temps have been all over the board this week. Just another January in Ohio. Had a great time with my friends at DeCon this past weekend. Played some games, had some tasty food, even danced a tiny bit. Short post today because I’m also hanging out with friends tonight, and tomorrow, and the next day. Busy, happy life.

Finished Small Favors, and I’m now on Turn Coat in the Dresden binge. At work, I finished Callahan Chronicles, and now I’m listening to Star Beast by Heinlein. Still waiting on quite a few books on the hold list.

So much to do, and so little time. πŸ™‚

Sorry about the late post, I spent yesterday working, and moving gear into the DeCon hotel. It’s going to be a lovely weekend relaxing and partying with friends. I had a great time last weekend watching musicals with friends, as well. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful life and great friends.

Work moves along at it’s usual pace. Fingers crossed for a big change soon. But the library continues to find new ways to serve our customers, this year the focus is on, not what we think they want, but finding out what they Really want.

Started into Callahan’s Chronicles this week, while waiting on the hold lists. Finished White Night, and am now into Small Favor on the Dresden front.

Right now, I’m waiting for lunch to finish cooking so I can eat and get out to DeCon. πŸ™‚

Had a nice quiet long weekend and played Lots of new boardgames. I’m not even sure I remember them all, let’s see: Star Wars:Rebellion, Lords of Waterdeep, Tsuro, Pandemic, Star Trek: Five-Year Mission, The Game of 99, and Run for Your Life, Candyman. Β It was a nice way to ring out the old and in the new year.

Finished Princep’s Fury, and Proven Guilty and am waiting for First Lord’s Fury to become available – last book in the Codex Alera series, and am listening to White Night at home. I’m on the Dune waitlist, too. Figure I should at least give it a try.

Two pre-interview rejections on the job front. One interview next week, and one more application waiting. Looking, looking, looking. Full time needed as soon as I can manage.

Life’s pretty good, all in all. Getting together with friends this weekend, and DeCon next weekend. πŸ™‚
