Still no real winter down here. Just cold and rainy. So a slightly more miserable spring.

Two new librarians at work have shifted the burden a bit, but Wendy’s last day is tomorrow. So, still a bit busy for a while. I’ve been working on accessibility and formatting documents this week. Attended my first meeting of the Digital Accessibility Committee, as well. We are working on creating college-wide policy and procedures.

Had a great weekend with friends that had me forgetting to post last week. Dentist appointment went well. Got a flat tire this week, still need to find time this weekend to get that fixed, but I was home when I discovered it, so no big troubles.

Looking forward to more time with friends this weekend. Locke and Key premieres tomorrow! Also lots of Critical Role hype lately. So much cool!

Another colleague moving on. Work environment stress ratcheting up. Meeting to clarify spreading of duties just made it more muddy than before. I keep doing what I’m doing. Two new hires starting soon, then another round of sorting out job descriptions and interviews.

I’ve started a new thing in writing. I have a prompt that I’m going to respond to every day for at least four weeks. No word count requirements, just write what I feel that day. The prompt is:

Tell me how you crumble when
you hit the wall, the place you
cannot go beyond by the strength
of your own will. What carries you
to the other side of that wall,
to the fragile beauty
of your own humanness?

After I finished Kushiel’s Chosen, I’m back on Benedict Jacka. Got through Chosen and now on Hidden. I also am working on Volume 6 of Locke & Key.
