I'm a Librarian and paper artist. Unless otherwise noted, the art on this blog is mine. I made it, and I don't authorize anyone to use any of it for anything. Just look at it, and tell me if you like it or hate it...don't steal it. Thanks!

Tech service = Being on hold

I’ve spent the majority of today trying to get my new phone set up.

Currently, my old phone cannot be used for phone calls, unless it’s an emergency.

Contrarywise, my new phone cannot be accessed at all until I get the SIM card unlocked.

I’ll take everything (including a new screen protector they can apply for me) to the AT&T store tomorrow to have them straighten it all out.

Have a good night!

New phone, who dis?

Received my new phone yesterday, and have been transferring my information from my old S8 to my new S21.

Since I use my phone so much, there are a huge number of things to be transferred. It’s mostly a case of having to remember way too many passwords.

The new cameras are pretty impressive on the new hottness.

This succulent was purchased from Costco about 3 years ago. It’s blooming!

It’s so nice outside, We’re gonna either go for a bike ride or wash our cars…Shelley sure needs it!

More later!

Fridays are my Thursdays when I work Saturdays.

Woke up a bit late this morning but still had time for that 1st cup of coffee with my girl. You all know Emily.

My sleepy head.

Work was good. Stayed busy and generally cheerful the whole day, so yay!

Found out that my pedi spot (Signature Nails in Vallejo) is open with limited folks inside. Couldn’t wait any longer, so I made an appointment, picked up a small frappuccino (because pedi + coffee = happiness), and now I am comfortably ensconced on a massage-y chair, while my feet are pampered. 👑

Looks messy, but feels SO GOOD!

I spring for the #3 pedi, which includes: scrub, mask, hot stone massage, paraffin foot soak, hot towel wrap, and RAPTURE!

I came home to my sweet girl, and I am now relaxing…admiring my pretty toes:

They feel like buttah…

I’m going to sleep early tonight, as I need to be at work by 8am.

After work tomorrow, I’ll head east toward my heart:

Back before we let our pandemic hair grow…

Goodnight lovely humans.

Later than usual

Woke up.

Had coffee.

Worked 8 hours.

Took a lovely HOT shower.

Tomorrow morning is my stellar coworker’s goodbye party before he transfers to a library branch across the county.

It’s also when I have to go to work an hour earlier…

Found an old, previously unknown photo of my Grandma, Dannie Mae Rader:

I was Grandma’s Baby long after this photo was taken.

Going to sleep now.

Goodnight.

And today…

Is turning into another good day…

Woke up to this GLORIOUS poppet…

Work was busy and I love that because not only does that mean that many folks are using the Library, but staying occupied makes the time fly by.

Samsung S21 5G

Today I ordered this fancy, new phone…it should arrive by the weekend, so I’ll get to try the new camera hotness in Woodbridge.

(Of course I ordered a couple new cases for it online, too).😉🤪🤩🤓

Lucky me…I get to end the day in much the same way I started it…with THIS fluffy lover:

My Best Friend.

Goodnight, ya’ll!

Back to work…

I woke up early enough to have a 2nd cup of coffee and extra snuggles with My Emily.

She’s SO FLUFFY!!!

A retired former coworker brought these in to us from her garden:

GLORY!
The COLORS, tho!

Today is looking like a pretty good day here at JFK, even though one of my favorite coworkers is leaving us after Saturday and it’s rather jarring to watch him pack up/clean his desk. 😥

He is promoting to full time at another location, so I can’t harsh his gig, but I hope he can come back to JFK when a full time spot opens up. 🤓🥳

Tonight I’m going to collect up a few items and supplies to take back to my new Art Space at Matt’s…

I mean, you KNOW there will be beautiful tapestries and twinkly lights in there! 🤩🤪

I purchased a string of lights much like this, and three (3) were delivered. MWAH-HAH-HAH!
My forest tapestry is quite like this…

I do believe I’ve got some Aries moon energy going on.

Happy Tuesday!

Day 12 blog along. Day 1 Aries Moon Vow.

That’s right…I have been keeping up with Effy’s blog along so far, and I love this shit.

In addition, in my Art Class on Saturday, I vowed on the dark of the Aries Moon that I will get paint on my fingertips.

I did this with my fingers.

I was testing out my new paint from yesterday in one of my art journals.

I anticipate that these iridescent colors will REALLY pop on black paper.

Also, I ❤ Iris Apfel.

It’s Me! In the Thing!

I’m so happy to be making something Arty!

Tonight was my journey back to my place, to prepare for my work week.

She’s licking my fingers cuz I had salmon for dinner.

I came home to her, so all is well…

Sleep for 13 hours…

Then wake up to hot coffee and snuggles with the love of my life…

My Matthew, My Heart

Received an art supply order.

YAY!

My new Iridescent Paint Set!
A case for my set of 98 watercolor brush pens. They are currently in a box…not conducive to my artsting style.

I made an Aries Moon vow to get paint on my fingers, and I plan to start with that yummy iridescent paint…

Happy Sunday & 11 days of blogging so far…

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!
