Lots to do

It's almost two weeks since I have retired from the Library and I cannot fathom where the time has gone.  If I were to have a few days vacation I would be chomping at the bit to go back to work but I'm finding that the days are rushing by - I hope things slow down soon but not to the point where I get bored.  I just received some photos of my retirement from my immediate supervisor and I'll post one of me being presented with a nice cheque from the Library Board by our Director and my Department Head - very nice...................

I was asked today if I would help out sometime with our local Arts Council in assembling their monthly magazine called "Articulations" - I said I would, they only have to call.  I would like to do some volunteer work but am not sure where yet.  I'm sure it will find me, just like it did today.  I signed up for two of the local Craft Shows which will be coming this summer, RotaryFest and Art in the Park.  I'm sure there will be more but I wanted to make sure that I was guaranteed a spot before I left on vacation.  They are so much fun.

Also went for my bloodwork this morning, I'm hoping that my haemoglobin levels are up and I won't need any more transfusions.

I finished the book by Tess Gerritsen "Harvest" and am starting on another one by her entitled "Girl Missing".  It's been a while since an author has captured my time and attention and I'm really enjoying her work.

Bought some new towels at Wal-Mart today for my new bathroom, in lilac.  I thought lilac and green would go well together and I have some new bathroom accessories in those colours.  Can't wait to put it all together.

Just a few more days and I will be heading out of town to see my darling grandson (and his mummy and daddy, dog and two cats).  I can't wait to hold him and kiss him and cuddle him.  I hope he doesn't find me strange, most people do, so I will forgive him if he does, LOL

Time for bed.  Have to get up early (just like when I was working) as I have a doctor's appointment with the "lupus specialist".  So, TTFN, be good and I'll connect with you again soon.
