Happy Weekending!

So, I am in Woodbridge with my heart.

You can’t see my long ponytail from here…

I woke up with enough time for coffee with Emily before work, and I have not regretted the “loss of sleep” inherent in waking up earlier for this.

That face tho!

Work was grand. I stayed busy enough for time to fly by…

I’m up to “O” in my shifting and things are going great.

See you on Monday morning, JFK.

I fell asleep in the arms of my love, and today I am as lazy as one can be on a single day off.

I’ll do laundry tho…

…clean clothes accomplished. We had pizza for dinner, and I’ll drive home after Zoe.

On the Road..

…made it home to my Emily.

She missed me. I know because she purrs so loud when I get home, I call her “My Motorhead”

It’s time for sleep. Another week in the library for me…

Goodnight, y’all.

Fri-yay?

If one works on Saturday, should one celebrate Friday?

It’s all good. Today has been a nice, pretty, day. I’m all the way to the “M” section in my shifting project, and it’s so calming for me.

To make order from chaos warms my Librarian heart.

I’ll drive to Woodbridge tomorrow after work to spend one precious day with my love.

Matt & Nancy
2019

I adore this man.

Goodnight, y’all.

Thursday Sunshine

Today was beautiful…sunny with a little breeze…

My morning starter…

Work has been great. I just try to keep up with the changes. We were going to stop requiring appointments on Saturday (5/1), but now that’s been pushed back for 2 weeks.

My shifting project keeps making me happy…I’m already done with Grisham…so it’s on to the “H” section.

Felt pretty cute today…

Went grocery shopping after work and wandered around for an hour, hungry, but I didn’t buy too much crap to eat, so I call it good.

I originally went because I needed creamer for my coffee.

I have to be at work an hour earlier on Fridays and Saturdays, so I need to go to bed…

All Staff meeting in the morning, so I CANNOT be late. This will likely be my last chance to hear from our Library Director, as she is retiring in a few weeks.

(More Changes a’Coming)

Goodnight, y’all.

Back to it…

As always, I had trouble falling asleep last night, but I woke up at 7:45, which meant I had time for 2 (two) cups of coffee and extra cuddling with my Emily before I had to leave for work.

My Adult Graphic Novel collection

Work is great. I’m continuing with the Adult Fiction shifting, and it makes me happy to do it. There’s something “zen”, for me, about organizing and displaying library items so that they look inviting and are easy to locate.

My shiny New Fiction section (we’re waiting for fresh signage with our new branding on it)
My hair scraped back cuz I am WORKING

So…on my way home for lunch (a 9/10 of a mile drive), I nearly got into an altercation with a person who was standing in the street, talking on her phone.

I said, “Get out of the road,” and she went OFF, yelling at me.

She tried to spit on me but spit on Shelley (my frankencar) instead.

SPIT.

ON. MY. CAR.

Stay classy, Vallejo.

I threw Shelley into park and unhooked my seatbelt.

She leaned into my car door and said, “What are you gonna do about it?” so I opened Shelley’s door, pushing her away from me.

Her little friend popped up and yelled, “Why would you push her with your car door?!?” and I replied, “Because she spit on my Fucking Car!”

Then I swung my legs out and stood up.

And they all stepped back just a bit.

Thus, these little millennials (Gen Z? I dunno, they all look 12 to me now) decided to start sauntering back toward the sidewalk, talking smack the whole way.

I said, “Stop standing in the road,” and the original road-blocker yelled at me, “You’re Still Talking Shit!”

So I used my Bartender voice, and said, “AND YOU’RE STILL IN THE ROAD!”

Then I drove home for lunch and kitty affection.

My Mom raised a lady, but I’m from Fresno, chica. I’ll pull some Chola action outa my back pocket and beat you down with it.

Anywho…I went back to work after lunch and all was well in my world.

The sticker my roomate gave me. Gonna put it on my coffee mug.

I’m home, with my Emily on my lap, thinking about what to make for dinner…

…made 3-cheese tortellini with pesto. 😋 🥣

Tomorrow is another day, where I hope to make better choices.

I could have handled that whole thing better…

Goodnight, y’all

Jigitty-jig…

…if you know that reference, you’re at least GenX, if not older.

I came home to my BabyGirlKid after a wonderfully comfortable 3-day weekend.

I received this little doorknocker in the mail today. I’ll hang it indoors tho…

Heehee!

Also, when I went to Raley’s to pick up some coffee, I happened upon this, and I HAD to have her:

She’s a cat! With a book AND a cup of coffee!

She, and my new, tiny succulent (doesn’t it look like green kitty toe-beans!?!) will move out to the back patio with the other plants I’ve kept alive.

I drove home tonight to spend the week with Emily (and to work my weekly 40hrs) and when I arrived at my apartment, I saw the full moon watching over me…

Super Pink Full Moon

Which is weird, cuz I think THIS is a Super Pinky:

Hmm…I think I have one somewhere…

Goodnight, y’all…

Oscar Sunday

Woke after a great night’s sleep, to fresh coffee and a turkey, fried egg, and cheese sammich, made by my love.

He is an excellent cook. I think it’s genetic, both of Matt’s daughters (Kelly & Megan) are incredible cooks as well.

The blossom on one of my succulents
Freshly washed hair – I’m seriously considering a haircut.

Watched the Oscar’s and I’m glad that John Baptiste and H.E.R. won.

Goodnight.

The Day After The Jab

Received my 2nd Covid-19 vaccination yesterday, and took today off work to recuperate.

I slept for more than 10 hours last night, but that’s not unusual for me, as I always sleep better/longer at Matt’s place.

Despite sleeping that long, I’ve felt tired and muscle achy today. I think some of that is from shifting the entire Mystery section, then starting on Adult Fiction, over the past 2 days.

Last night we got tacos at LA Picosita and this is what the moon looked like:

New camera phone goodness.
I think I took this one while Matt took a flash photo with his iPhone.

I’m full as a tick right now. We picked up Asian food at a local place in Lodi, Shangri La. Shared pan fried noodles, crab rangoon, and an unagi caterpillar roll. YUM! 😋

There are new neighbors moving in across the street. They haven’t unpacked yet but they hung this flag at the peak of their garage roof:

Originally a George Washington era battle flag, now represents xtian nationalism/xtian dominionism.

Well, yee-haw.

New glasses, who dis?

Shiny Spectacles

I also got my 2nd Moderna vaccine today and I am EXTATIC about it. In 2 weeks, I’ll feel so much safer than I have in over a year.

I have the next 3 days off. I took tomorrow off because many folks I know have felt puny the day after their 2nd jab. Sunday and Monday are my regular days off.

I plan to rest tomorrow, and probably putter on Sunday, as the forecast is for big rain.

I’m happy and tired. 😌
