This weekend I’m going to hang curtains, real curtains in an apartment for the first time, ever. Go me. <Laughs> Mostly, I want to reduce my heat bills this winter. I’ve always complained about my windows letting in cold air in winter, so this year, I’m going to try to do something about it. We shall see how it goes.

Looking forward to Mom visiting. Planning to take her to see Dr Strange. 🙂 And to the Friends of the Library Big Book Sale on Saturday at Main. Should be a fun weekend.

Finished listening to Academ’s Fury. Now, I’m listening to Off To Be The Wizard. It’s fun and silly. I’ll probably head to the next Butcher book next.

The elections are over. Wow. So many people are surprised, myself included. But it’s done, it’s over. Now we have work to do. Regardless of your opinion of the results, this country has some serious problems. And we have a lot of work ahead of us to solve them. We always have, but this election seems to have woken up a lot more people to that reality. Although, I’m pretty sure there are still a lot of Different ideas about what those problems are, as well as the solutions. So, get involved, work on the problems you see, take action. This isn’t about ‘getting over it.’ Don’t get over it, do something about it.

That is one of the things I love about my library. We work with the community, helping the children succeed in school, helping the teens get excited about music and computers and possibilities, helping adults find jobs and navigate government programs. Providing a safe place for all.

Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.

Tomorrow is Guy Fawkes Night. We shall celebrate with V for Vendetta tonight since we’ll be busy tomorrow. Elections were earlier this week, it seems an appropriate time for such a holiday.

St. Ann‘s is still sending us nasty-grams about our bills, even though we keep calling them. Rich will be trying again tomorrow. They’re the last hold out on getting our payments fixed. They aren’t happy with the smaller payments we’ve sent them, but they haven’t been returning our calls in a timely manner, either. Might have to go hunt down their office up the road in person.

Signed a new consulting contract with Bookup. In negotiations with Flowered Intentions. Still seeking my first editing job on Elance. Lots of hours from the B&N this week and next. They tried to give me an extra one today, but I didn’t notice early enough to take a lunch break, so I had to leave at the previously scheduled time or not get paid for half an hour of work. Logging in and out for the Nook counter is really inefficient use of payroll. But the new NookColor looks pretty sweet. Looking forward to a demo device.

November and cold weather is here. Need to sew new buttons on my coat and maybe get a few warmer skirts.
