Hello, villagers ~
It's an end to my very busy, full-of-people week.
Thursday at work the library was wild. I don't know how else to describe it. From the moment I walked in the door, I was on call to multi-task. I had my normal tasks that I'm assigned every week, plus the boss instructed me to do other things that day, plus patrons kept coming through the door with bags
full of books and movies to check in and put away, and a higher-than-normal percentage of people needed personal assistance. It was fun and the time flew by quickly, but oh my when I got home all I could do was eat a snack and zombie out.
Yesterday I ran errands and filled my car with purchases. Lots of other shoppers, stockers, and clerks to maneuver my carts around and make small talk. At Sam's I even decided to use the self-serve check-out to try to get a break from talking, but a worker came up and tried to convince me to apply for a new credit card. No, thanks.
Made a good lasagna for supper last night, time-consuming but worth it when it tasted so good.
Today was my sewing group's monthly meeting. The program speaker was too ill to come, so for Plan B the members were asked to tell a short story about their sewing journey, how they started, what keeps them interested. It was very light-hearted and joyful. I didn't speak because since I've been on the board multiple times, I've been up front a lot and they all know me already. Plus, as y'all are aware, I don't know any short stories and I wanted to give everyone else the chance to speak!
I stopped at the library after the meeting so I could read newspapers. The library was busy today again so more chatting.
DH and I went out for lunch at the local diner, and as usual it was full of noise and talk.
Once we got home from that, I checked a few things on the computer and then went up for a nap with the calico cat. Now I'm sitting here in blessed silence. I was planning to watch videos and knit, but this silence is so nice maybe I'll quietly CUOP and read blogs instead.
Let's go see what all of you have been up to this week, shall we?
