Lots of Usability Testing and microfilm scanning at my internships this week. That’s most of what I’ll be doing next week, too. Weee! Almost done! Thinking good thoughts for the future.

My Otterbein supervisor gave me a rather large squash on Tuesday. Then I got my CSA delivery, with a Really Huge bok choy bunch. I have never seen it whole before, but I in no way imagined it would be bigger than my torso… I have a lot of chopping to do tomorrow. I looked up a good way to freeze it, so it doesn’t get mushy and gross. Also got a butternut pumpkin and an acorn squash. I may have to look into chunking and freezing squash, too. Got a bunch of greens, too – spinach, kale, and green beans – gotta use those all up this weekend, unless I’m going to freeze the beans, but I think I’ll just garlic them up and eat them.

Tomorrow is Ohio IR Day. Where I will go listen to people talk about what they are doing with Institutional Repositories in Ohio. Should be fun and educational. Hopefully we’ll get some good advice for promoting the Digital Commons @ Otterbein. Our survey is showing that a  lot of folks are completely unaware of it.

A couple Halloween parties this weekend. Gotta see how many spoons I have to go out and party. Been a bit short on sleep this week.

Good Weekend, Time to Sleep April 4, 2013

Had a great weekend with my friends at MARCon this past weekend. We hosted our usual excellent party, with red and blue of tastiness. The music was great and the dancefloor stayed full all night. Thanks to all who made the party possible and kept it running smoothly.

Easter, I spent exhausted, and bored. I worked my first Sunday in over three years, and the place was dead, due to the rest of the mall being closed. But we carried on, and when I got home, it wasn’t too late to call my parents and wish them a Happy Easter, and Mom a Happy Birthday. And, thanks to some friends, I had a brand new (to me) bed to sleep in that night, too.

I am doing a bit more work on that “take care of me” thing, and bought a bunch of veggies this week. Even made and ate the Kale with Peanut Sauce (almond, really). And I have stuff for stir fry and stew. Making veggies and rice as I type, today.

This weekend will be for relaxing. As fleet heads to Kentucky for ConGlomeration, I am staying behind to puppy-sit. Such a cute, cuddly puppy, who could resist? Hoping to also get some writing done, but may just cuddle and sleep.

Went up to Monroe this past weekend to launch the sixth chapter of Fleet. It was a great party, even if the weather decided to be quite cold. Had a good time hanging out with old friends and making new ones. The pub we all went to dinner at was excellent and kept the food and drinks flowing. Though, next time, I think we might want to reserve the upstairs dining room.

Also got to drop by and see Eeks in Ypsi. She fed me lots of tea and tasty healthy food. We had roasted broccoli, peanut sauce covered kale, turmeric milk, and pizza with cauliflower and sweet potato toppings, among other things. As always, a great culinary adventure. She also let me watch Les Miserables while she finished her work for Monday. It was good, but it was not what I expected, so I need to see it again with revised expectations.

This weekend is MARcon downtown, so we’re throwing a fleet party tomorrow night. It will be a great time, and next year, we get to get off Easter weekend, as the con goes back to Mother’s Day weekend. Then, of course, is Easter Sunday. I was considering spending time with family, but then my boss asked/begged me to take a shift, so I’ll be working the evening at the store.

Hope everyone has a great Easter weekend! And Mom, Happy early Birthday!
