It was a nice long weekend of relaxing and not accomplishing much beyond laundry. I did drop off my car to get it fixed, but most of the work was done after the holiday, and now my car drives smooth as ever. Yay!

All the schools have started up again, so my mornings at the library are pretty quiet. We’re reorganizing some of our sections to see if we can up the check-out rates in audio books.  At Sprawl, I’m getting back into Glen Cook’s collection, while Mowgli sorts books he sent back from his WorldCon trip to Europe.

Coming up is some time with the puppy, and some playing of Kingdom Hearts remastered on the PS4. But first, I’m going to a conference tomorrow: 2017 ASIS&T Midwest Regional Conference.

I finished The Republic of Thieves, and Maurice and His Educated Rodents. Now I’m into Towers of Midnight. I’ll finish The Wheel of Time some day soonish, just one more after this.

Another quiet week at work, with lots of shelf-reading. Finished up the current contents of Collection 3 and started into Collection 2 (Glen Cook) at Sprawl. Pretty quiet and peaceful.

Had a weekend with friends. Started a paint-by-number at Girls’ Night In. we’re going to keep working on them over the next few gatherings, as well. I’ve got a quiet weekend ahead, probably car repairs.

Paint-by-Number Sunset, halfway done

Listened to The Princess Diarist and The Witch’s Vacuum Cleaner and Other Stories, and am most of the way through The Republic of Thieves. Next up is The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents.

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.

Biggest news of the week – I have had my application for a new apartment accepted. At the end of September, I will be moving to a new place – townhome with A/C and everything. 😉 Well, not everything, I think I’m still without a dishwasher, but at least I’ll have kitchen counters. And according to the crime map, it’s a safer area, too.

In work news, Whitehall’s wrapping up their Summer Reading Club and getting geared up for the school year. This weekend starts IFLA ( International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions) and since we’re a new branch, we’ll have international visitors next week. Over at Sprawl, I just finished putting the newest collection into plastic totes – 54 in all, and tomorrow I’ll start cataloging them. A Lot of 1st edition hardcovers, and many of them signed.

In audiobook news – I just finished Wintersmith by Terry Pratchett (yes, I’m reading the series in the wrong order), and I’ve started in on Memnoch the Devil by Anne Rice because, of all the books I’ve read by her, I thought this would be the most interesting to revisit. Also, everything else I want to listen to is on hold. And The Martian doesn’t appear to be available through the library.

Mom and Dad are coming to visit this weekend. The girls’ birthdays are next week, but they’re to the age of having friends parties instead of family. Had a nice weekend with the puppy, and enjoyed a few movies and finishing the first season of The Librarians on Hulu.
