56 days of summer – 2

I did write while at the beach. Internet connection at the hotel was TERRIBLE. :/


Today we went to the beach early, then walked to downtown. We stopped in every little (or big) shop and browsed, ate lunch on some patio at some grille (can’t remember the name but they had great food) and walked back.

I’ve got two books going. I started the Silo Series by Hugh Howey. ¬†I’m in book 1, Wool.¬†Easy reading. The Abyssinian Proof¬†by Jenny White features a detective named Kamil and is set in the Ottoman Empire. Took a bit to get into it, but it’s grown on me.


56 days of summer

or is it 40. I couldn’t decide to count the the weekends or not, but I wanted to use the time to get back in the habit of blogging and thought this would the be perfect time to do it. So, for habits sake, I’m going to count the weekends!

Last week was a work week. There are so many things that have to be done that just don’t happen¬†when the students are there. I don’t ever want to sound like I don’t love most every minute that I’m with students. I do. So many things pile up though: series needing new call numbers, books to process, books to fix, weeding, shifting, book room, deleting¬†lost materials and that doesn’t even touch lesson plans and materials. I couldn’t believe the amount of things we got through last week and still have so much left to do.

But, today is the first day of summer, and while I’ll have to address the left overs at some point, we are going to the beach. I’ve got items for the library¬†to cut out on the drive and of course books to read. Hoping for a lovely and lazy few days.
