Happy Birthday, Erika!!!

It’s been a pretty rough week outside, but nothing unusual for July. Makes me not want to go out and do things though. On this, the first community day for a new Harry Potter game. Might still do…

Work has been busy. Boss’s last day. Code4Lib Midwest chapter conference for two days. Meetings and measurements in the Archive. Writing up my presentation for OPAL. All the things with an August 1st deadline. Having a consultation this week with a conservator, then may have to completely rewrite my grant proposal. Still have to create the PowerPoint for my presentation. Weeee, summer!

At home, my skirt is nearly done. Just the hem (which I should have done before attaching the last row, but didn’t), and the waist band, and then sewing the final seem to bring it all together. Been finishing up my coloring page from Girls’ Night, too. All the pretty colorful things.

All the excitement for August. It’s going to be a whirlwind. One conference, Two international conventions, an arts festival, and a wedding!

In books, I finished Ender’s Game Alive, and now I’m listening to Ender’s Shadow. I picked up the first issue of Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins II (both digitally and physical) and on my birthday, A Darkened Wish issue two comes out! I’m hoping to get both signed next month.

Have a great summer!

Classes back in session, and the library is busy again. I had a Code4Lib conference. Got to meet lots of folks and learn a lot of new things. I even have a GitHub account now.

Working on some Use and Usability this week. Getting a proposal ready for the bosses.

We had our first big summer picnic this weekend. Lots of tasty smoked meat and homemade desserts. Also got to play a new game: Jamaica, and some rounds of Zombie Dice and a chapter of a Zombiecide campaign.

Read Magical Misfits and Proven Guilty. Now, I am working on Mirror, Mirror. Also watched the first season of Handmaid’s Tale.
