Ursula K. Le Guin died this week. And I realized, I’ve never read any of her books. I cataloged some of hers this week, though. So, many artists live in obscurity, and though she did not, I know I should take the time to appreciate more of them than I do.

OhioDIG meeting on the DPLA and the ODN was good yesterday. I talked to a couple new people about their projects. And I got to see the really nice large-object scanner at the State Library. It’s something like This One, but the table is Way Bigger. Waiting to hear back from an interview I had later in the day, as well.

Working all weekend, so a quiet one. Might finish my paint-by-number. If so, I’ll post it.

This week, I’ve listened to Death Masks, again. Tomorrow, I’ll probably do a bit more Mists. Everything else I want is on the Holds list.

We had a great week at the library. My branch had two events, one special story time and one big party. Our community also had a march on Monday that a handful of staff and volunteens participated in. It was a good week of coming together and celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr.’s vision of peace and equality, and remembering that some things are worth fighting for.

On the job front, I got one more rejection, and one more interview scheduled. Need to do a bit more looking around after I get this posted. Still working my way through Javascript lessons, and I attended a webinar on Caring for Photographic Collections this week. Coming up is another OhioDIG meeting at the State Library.

I had a nice couple of nights hanging out with friends this weekend. Today I’m doing some housecleaning, laundry, and maybe putting away Christmas, having received my final presents from Amazon yesterday.

On the audiobook front, I finished Green Rider. Then I listened to two excellent books recommended by my aunt, Mary who heard about them from her son, Jonathon: Binti and Binti Home by Nnedi Okorafor. Then, I went back for a bit more Mists of Avalon.

We all made it to the hotel safely. Having good music, good food, and good fun. Later today games on the lido deck with the Captain.

Work is going along quietly now with the kids back in school. Lots of events starting today to Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr and Black History Month.

No word on jobs yet. Pretty sure I didn’t get the one. Waiting for interview requests on the rest.

Reading Mists of Avalon (Bradley) and Green Rider(Britain ) I had to stop Mists because I was getting annoyed with the women.

Happy New Year to Everyone!

I gamed with friends all weekend. First Rifts and then a handful of board/card/dice games.  Now, I am finishing the night watching football in front of the fireplace.
