Nights are getting cooler, though days are still mostly oppressively hot. But fall is on its way. 🙂

Had a nice weekend. Hung out with friends. Wandered around Easton, including the Lego Store, Jenni’s, and at least one kitchen store. Watched OSU’s opener Monday night on a big screen with other friends. All in all, not a bad way to begin September. Much larger group gathering this weekend.

Internships are both going well, even went to a meeting with a bunch of Digital Librarian type people from all over the state on Wednesday (OhioDIG: Ohio Digital Interest Group). That was really interesting, learning about OSU’s big digital reorganization, and getting to tour the Westerville Public Library’s archives department.

Busy Family Weekend August 18, 2011

Saturday was the big day. The nieces had their 2nd and 4th birthday party, and all the family came. Five (and a half) cousins, three grandparents, three aunts and uncles, and even a great aunt and uncle. We had fruit and veggies  and chips and burgers and cake and ice cream. There were presents and games and a huge cardboard colorable castle. It was good to see everyone and be surrounded by family for an afternoon. Hadn’t seen a lot of those folks for around a year(since last year’s bday party).

Sunday was also very nice. A nice lunch with my parents and aunt and uncle, chatting and munching on cheddar bay biscuits. Mom and I went shopping after that, wandering around Easton, enjoying ourselves, but having no luck. We went to Walmart after that and found exactly what we needed. The simplest answer, usually is the best. Then a nice Italian dinner that was both delicious an pleasant. We missed our movie, but the food and time with my parents was worth it.

Re-energized by a pleasant weekend, I was able to get up early for a goodbye breakfast and quick stop at a thrift store for pants before they left for the long drive home. I spent the rest of the day being quite productive. Cleaning, taking care of finances, and running errands. Good, thing, too. The rest of the week has been far from productive.

I did sort out the FTP problem, I think. Just need to check one more thing. The school job is out, but maybe not permanently. And there might be a bit of paid temp work I can help out with there. As I said this past weekend, I really don’t mind, to the point of liking, data entry, but I’d really like it to be for something meaningful. I’m a terribly procrastinator, but I’m opening my eyes a little bit wider now.

My back is doing better. My elbow is being weird. And anniversary plans are still up in the air. This month is not yet over. 🙂
