Well, back to the grind! I went in to work yesterday and wrangled with an immense stack of magazines that had accumulated on my desk over the summer -- and now they're all logged in, sorted and the newest issues have been put out on the magazine rack. So at least the library looks up-to-date and the magazine covers no longer say things like, "Will Boris be Prime Minister?!"
It's kind of nice to be working again, honestly. It's fun to catch up with my co-workers and there's comfort in routine.
I can't pull the library together completely because orientation meetings are taking place there, so the tables and chairs are haphazard and the shelves are all moved around. But little by little. I think next week I'll be able to make it more orderly. The kids don't show up until a week from this coming Tuesday.
Yesterday afternoon was sunny and cool, and I walked home and mowed the lawn. (Because I can bring home the bacon and fry it up in the pan...even though I'm not a woman!) There are still three caterpillars hanging around on the ragwort, including Rupert -- what are they waiting for?! It's getting chilly out there! (A high of 67º F today.)
