Today is Maundy Thursday, tomorrow’s Good Friday, and Sunday is Easter. My work week isn’t actually affected by this, except for the difference in customers at the library tomorrow. Not sure what it’s going to look like in our neighborhood.

I have a lot of friends traveling internationally this week, a couple in Buenos Aries, a couple in Madrid, my second boss in Germany. I’ll be having a girl’s night on Saturday, but no traveling for me this time. At least I don’t have to work the weekend. 🙂

Finished Knife of Dreams, just three more to go in that series. Then I listened to The Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B. Du Bois, which has been on my list since February, but the wait list was very long. Now, I’m listening to another Heinlein, Glory Road.

Happy Thanksgiving!!! November 28, 2013

I wish everyone a very happy, safe and love-filled Thanksgiving today. Safe travels for those on the road, and a snow storm for those waiting outside retail establishments for sales. 😉 (No, I’m not looking forward to working this weekend, but at least the time will go by fast.)

This past weekend was pet-sitting while folks went out east, this weekend is pet sitting while folks go to Indiana. Poor Ralphie’s back in his cone, though. Dusty is ignoring me so far today though I imagine he’ll come out when I start eating dinner.

In the oven so far: Cornish hen and homemade stuffing. In an hour, I’ll switch the stuffing for the yams, and check on the hen. Tuesday I had an excellent Thanksgiving feast with my gaming friends, last night the folks I pet-sit for made me another excellent feast, today is with the pup and cat, and tomorrow, I imagine there will be all sorts of food at work. 🙂 Quite a good Thanksgiving week.

School-wise, I’ve got an annotated bibliography and summary to do this weekend, and one post to reply to sometime before Sunday. Next week is my last week for the semester. Hurray, a break so I can catch up on Dr Who and Bones. 😉

All in all, a good start to the holiday season.

 

Where did the warmth go? April 22, 2010

Wrote this last Saturday, not sure why it didn’t get published…

A low of 35 tonight? Really? Come on, spring, we liked you, come back…

Reading the revised and updated edition of 4-Hour Workweek. I got through the first section this week. Did the dreamlining exercise and my four most important goals for the next six months, I’m already moving on, just have to get to the next steps. Also learning about internet marketing for fun and profit. Still waiting to see if our man in India can pull off a miracle for the Bookup site’s integration. B&N hours are still steadily dropping, a couple more things in place and I’ll be done there. All signs say I should not wait, but my need for security is just too high. If I get desperate for money, I’m sure I can open up my availability and have a heart to heart with Lee Anne. Things are staying balanced for the moment, though.

On the first topic of this post, dreamlining, I thought I’d say a little more about that. The object of the exercise was to make two lists, one for six months and one for twelve months, of what you wanted to have, be and do.  My six month list of have was mostly new clothes, my list of be involved blogger, paid published author and being more fit, and my do list included two trips, concrete work on a book, making income outside traditional “job” structures, as well as a lovely anniversary celebration with Rich. My twelve month goals included a bigger home/apt, a tablet pc and a published book; financial freedom from the rat race, freedom from RA flares (I haven’t taken any meds in a couple weeks), freedom to travel, and more time with my family and friends.
