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

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

Mid-weakly

Some days, yanno?

Today was a good day at work. I call it a good day when there are no incident reports. I did have to ask a guy to leave (watching videos on his phone even after I informed him that he needed to use earbuds/headphones), but he left without a problem.

I was checking out Google earth on the new phone, and peeped on my own place. This is my front door. I live upstairs.

That’s my Merry up in the top, left window. And I put that sign up.

It’s been super breezy all day, and now it’s cold & windy enough to keep knocking out my wifi. It comes back on, but the interruptions are annoying.

Was clearing out old files (new phone, ya) and found this video, looking out my kitchen window while it rained, in March 2020…before CA shut down.

Rain through a dirty window…
My dinner…

Goodnight, y’all!

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.
