If we were having coffee, we’d be sitting at a table by the window in the sun, basking in it’s warmth like cats. I’d be drinking my usual mocha–what would you have?
It’s been a really weirdly paced week. I didn’t work have to be at work on Monday and Tuesday, then was offsite all day Wednesday. It feels strange for the weekend to be here already, but I’m not complaining.
This afternoon, I’m going shopping with a college friend. We’ll be visiting thrift stores to see what kind of bargains are to be found. While I’ll certainly see if I can find any nice clothes, I’m mostly looking forward to seeing what books are out there. Yes, I work at a library and can get everything free. Yes, I just bought a bunch of secondhand books on Amazon. Yes, I own more books than my shelves can handle. But still… more books please!
On Wednesday, I got to be part of the Minnesota Library Association’s annual lobby day at the Minnesota State Capitol. With a group from work, I spent the day meeting with legislators in St. Paul about library funding. Thankfully, I didn’t have to do much talking–my bosses handled that part. By the end of the day, after hearing the speech six times, I could summarize our legislative platform to the point of sounding really, really smart.
