Forgot to post last week, because I was At MarCon. Thursday was setup and welcome party. Friday I worked all day, and got back in time for dinner, crew meeting, and our first public party. Saturday was a bit more relaxed. I got to play Battletech and have more tasty foods, before crew meeting and the big public party. Sunday was tear down and move out, and our dead dog, where I got to play Zombicide and Jackbox quiz games. And back to work on Monday.

I hope all the Mom’s had a great Mother’s Day on Sunday.

This week starts into Summer Games prep, so I spent four hours typing up dogtags last night. (Thus the post today instead of last night.) I won’t have internet connection next Thursday either, but I’ll TRY to remember to prepare a post ahead of time.

Work is going well. I’m getting a bunch of time to work on my project in the next two weeks for MLK. And then we start Summer Reading Club. Which has gone Digital this year.

Finished Lies of Locke Lamora, and got through Stardust. The audiobook is cool because it even has an interview with Gaiman. Then I listened to The Gathering Storm by Robert Jordan/Brandon Sanderson. Now, I’m listening to Leviathan Awakes by Corey, because The Expanse is a great show.

I missed last week completely, and yesterday, too. Thanks, Mom, for reminding me. Not a whole lot going on, yet.  This month is when everything happens.

The library’s going well. We’re gearing up for Summer Reading Club. I’ve started cataloging the archival materials. At the warehouse, we’re over 17K books, plus a few thousand magazines.

I’ve finished Good Omens, and I’m most of the way through The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. Next up is probably Stardust. We started watching American Gods and The Handmaid’s Tale this week, as well.

Most of the kids in my area are on Spring Break this week. Library’s been pretty busy, full of kids on computers, mostly. They’ve had science experiments in the afternoon, and lots of reading buddies. I’ve got Saturday left for the week, as well as tomorrow at Sprawl.

Has a good time with friends this weekend, came home with a few new random books. Had a nice Sunday with the Puppy for Easter. Nice Easter service, too. Main topic: Doubters are welcome at the Tomb.

Finished Glory Road by Heinlein, then listened to The Daily Show Presents: Earth, by John Stewart. Now, I’m listening to Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.

Well, everything is in the new place, and keys have been returned for the old place. I am officially moved in. Only about halfway through unpacking though – kitchen set up, but not the extra stuff. One bookcase filled up, but not the second. One pewter case re-installed, but not the other. Internet set up, but only one computer. Bedroom is fully set up, and all the furniture is in the right places, as well as most of the boxes, but a lot of unpacking still to do. There is, however, internet, which makes me very happy.

This weekend, though, I’m going camping. It’ll be slightly on the chilly side, possibly damp, but it will be fun, and there will be friends. And we will have a good time. 🙂  And Chili, from what I hear.

I go through M is for Magic, and this week I’m listening to Ender’s Game. With Ender’s Shadow on deck, because I’ve never read it, and I’m curious. I’ve also got a Robin Hobb book checked out because it came off my reserve list just after I got Ender downloaded. Lots to listen to.

See you next week, with photos.
