An hour and a half of stuff to do tomorrow, then I’ll officially be halfway through my internships. Now it’s time to start applying for jobs and going to conferences. Currently have one scheduled for October and emailed about volunteering for one in November. There’s one this weekend that would have been interesting, but I am exhausted, and I need to focus on making a plan and getting some rest. I have a very busy couple of months coming up.

Camping, Halloween parties, conventions, and holidays, wee!

Enjoying my cantaloupe, zucchini and potatoes from my CSA, this weekend will be the squash and setting up the order for next week.

Internships still going well, though my posts last week were a few days late, due to busy and tired. Finally got the Annual Reports caught up, and now on to more items for the African American collection.

Received my welcome email from the CSA today. They changed my delivery day to Wednesdays. This Could be problem. They suggest leaving a cooler with ice in front of your house for the delivery, but I live in an apartment building. Originally, the delivery day was Friday, which is my day off. Hoping I’m early in the route, and can just head to work after they arrive. We shall see, first delivery is next week.

Fleet party this weekend. Looking forward to relaxing with friends. Haven’t had a local event since the early Summer picnic. Also a wedding shower to attend on Saturday. A day full of friends and chosen family.

Missed gaming this week, trying to fight off ConCrud before the weekend. Last week we made new 5th Ed characters, first time with the newest edition of D&D, to use when our GM is absent. Seems good so far. I need to flesh her out a bit. Regular game is going really well, my character is having a lot of fun. I’m slowly working on my gaming blog, getting his adventures online. It is hard to catch up when you’ve been playing for six months without blogging any of it.

Pants, Veggies, and Dinosaurs August 13, 2015

Had a good visit with my parents. Mom and I went to see Minions and Jurrasic World on Sunday. They were both a lot of fun. Dad told me stories and we reminisced about old TV shows. We had our usual Red Lobster family dinner, and even watched some Golf together. Mom also insisted on the Shopping. So we got groceries and had an unexpectedly successful trip to Kohl’s, landing me three new pair of work pants for my internships.

I had a great talk with my Columbus Metropolitan Library supervisor on Monday. A lot of really fun projects coming up that I can help with. (Note: my definition of fun is Certainly different than yours… unless you are also a (digital) Librarian.) So, even more excited for September to get here.

Today, I also signed up for a local Fall CSA (New Century) that will deliver me fresh vegetables every other week for two months starting at the end of September. If it goes well, I will definitely be signing up in the spring for Summer and Fall next year. I’m really bad at getting to the store for fresh fruits and veggies. Though, as it is supposed to be for a small family, I may need help eating it all… or preserving it for winter. 🙂

Two weeks, and 8 work days left at B&N.
