November Update

Okay, so I've been a bit negligent in updating my wee blog, except for book reviews to keep myself straight. Let's see what's been going on with me and TinyTown for the last, oh, month or so...

I got a new toilet, which was good news, because this was vaguely alarming to come home to...

October 24

The fam got together for a fabu steak dinner in Indy to remember Grandpa...

October 27

My friend Jen and I rented a cabin in the woods to have a "girls weekend"...bliss...

October 28

I finally visited the Garden of the Gods in southern Illinois...breathtaking...

November 2

I celebrated Halloween with my co-workers...

October 31

I touched the Lombardi trophy, tried on a Super Bowl ring and hugged the Colts mascot during the ILF Annual Conference...

November 14

And sadly, we lost a fellow employee and friend unexpectedly at APL last week. Nancy worked for the library for ten years, and her passing was sudden and shocking. I closed the library the day she died, and again for her funeral, and the staff put on a lunch for the family following the service, which the family so appreciated. It was a rough week, but we were through it together...

November 8
(APL gone dark)


Aside from that, mostly I've been spending every spare minute in front of a computer writing my fifth novel, rather than blogging or Flickring. ;-)

November 4

Once NaNo is done (November 30), I promise I'll be back! Right now, I have to go prep for Turkey Day...the fam is coming here this year, so I'm in charge of the dinner - a rite of passage into adulthood. I'm not sure I'm ready to be a grown-up yet, but I'll try!

Happy Thanksgiving!
