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.

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.

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!

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.

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!
