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!

It’s Beginning to Look… December 15, 2016

… a lot like Christmas. The librarian brought in garland to decorate the office today. The snow is sticking quite firmly to the ground. Parties have begun for the holidays. I’m halfway through present shopping/making and am still trying to sort out the family visit. Looking forward to seeing my nieces and nephew, and brother and sis-in-law.

My jobs are hot and cold. The library’s heat is running quite well, though I hear the A/C turned on yesterday when it got warm enough. Sprawl, however, is a bit on the chilly side. I have a space heater for my work area, and the office folk turned on the big blower in the back when they realized I was there yesterday (they didn’t have anybody on their side of the warehouse). I finished the collection I was working on, and Tomorrow I start the new collection that just arrived.

Instead of TV/Netflix at home, I’ve been binging on Dresden Files audio books again. At Sprawl, I’ve gotten through Harm None, and now I’m onto Captain’s Fury. Though, today I did watch the new Ghostbusters and the newest James Bond – Spectre. Hoping to see Rogue One this weekend.

Hope everyone has a great, and safe, holiday season.

Welcome to Summer May 31, 2012

Summer is hitting full force. This past weekend we were hitting the 90 degree mark and occasionally passing it. The humidity came right along with it, too. Therefore, I stayed inside pretty much all the time. We didn’t get to go rollerblading like we hoped, nor out to Hocking Hills for a hike. It was too hot. A whole bunch of my friends, however, braved the heat for a camping trip. I was sad I could not go, but there were other things to take care of. By all accounts, it was a great time, with games and s’mores and smoked meats of various varieties. They’ve all told me I have to go next year. I’ll have to plan better so that I can. 🙂

I, instead, spent quite a lot of time playing WoW. I’m now level 80, and flying quite fast. Leveling goes far too quickly these days. I have so much more of Northrend yet to do, since I’ve never done it before. And yet, they’re trying to send me on, because I’ve outleveled most of the content. I’m stubborn though, and quite alright with doing grey or green level quests, and hitting max before I even get to Cataclysm content.  I’m also up to 64 pets. So close to the next milestone of 75. But there are 150, so quite a lot left to do there. Enjoying all the fishing and cooking and archeology, too. And 5 short of the next mount achievement of 50, as well.

Coming up: Father’s Day, Birthdays, Anniversaries, trips and conventions. A busy summer indeed.
