My Friday…

For the month of April, I work Tuesdays through Saturdays, so today is my Friday.

Being a #saturdaylibrarian is mostly the same as weekday librarian-ing, except that the Vallejo Farmer’s Market that occurs every Saturday from 9-2 increases foot traffic, as it’s right around the corner from the library, on Georgia street.

Ted “Theodore” Logan

This is Ted.

Ted lives just outside the library door, on the City Hall side.

Ted loves unsalted peanuts.

He’s just so perky…

Welp! The work week is over for me…its time to pack it up and drive to Woodbridge to be with my Heart…

in Monterey

PS – I love talking to ya’ll every day!

Long day…

I worked at the smaller library on the other side of Vallejo (Springstowne WOOT!) today and, for many reasons, I’m wiped.

Side yard at SPR

Springstowne is a house that was converted to a library in 1956. It is the smallest branch in our county system.

Close up of the signpost…

I like working at SPR once in a while, but I must admit my preference for my JFK.

Therapy tonight (you’re welcome)

I’ve been in therapy with Dr. Susan for 3 years this May. We generally meet (via phone, currently) every other week. When we were able to meet in person, we’d have coffee, and sometimes, the best Hawaiian burger at George’s Giant Hamburger in Walnut Creek.

Susan knows me very well by now, and I am heard and helped every time she and I speak.

She noted that I have CHOSEN not to worry about things that are not in my control. This is a great thing for me as I have generally been an, “I can fix it!” type of person.

“Fixing” things is an asset at work as a Librarian, but I was inclined to take it just a BIT too far, at times.

My regular routines are very good for me and I have little concern about changes I may have to deal with.

I can handle it.

If I can’t, I’ll find someone who can.

That’s how I roll.

A day to rest…tonight, I mean…

I have a full, regular day of work happening here, but I am sleepy. I couldn’t fall asleep last night until nearly midnight, then woke up at 730.

See…I’m not a morning person…never have been.

Before I went back to school to become a librarian, I was a Bartender for a decade.

Now THAT was a great schedule for me!

The only thing that keeps me trying this morning shit is the fact that I LOVE my job.

One of the main things I get to do is Help People find the information they need right now.

Sometimes that’s the location of the latest Mystery, or help with research for a school assignment, often it’s assistance with printing or scanning, and most importantly, it can be directions to the restrooms.

I get to assist with these and SO MANY other informational needs every day and I LIVE for this shit!

My roomate, Angelina (age 10) created this.

So…here I am…ready for bed. Time to curl up with this lovely furbaby:

Goodnight!

A new Art Space is being formed

My Love has been organizing the items that have been stored in the spare room at his place. This is the room that will become my Art Studio there.

An EXCELLENT start…

I’ll bring my Ott Light to replace that lamp in the corner, but this table is SUPER sturdy, and the chair is nicer than my work chair.

My Love also brought the art supplies I’ve had in the dining room, into this room, and sorted them really well, truly.

The cardboard in the window will be replaced by one of my wonderful tapestries.

I am looking forward to making some art in this room.

More importantly, this was all done by the Love of My Life, because he supports my Art Practice and Process.

I love this photo….

I am incredibly blessed and lucky.

Song of the Day
