in other news, busy making paper, and even teaching paper, almost every day, trying to figure out computer problems, teaching feltmaking tonight, a lot of online time, and remembering to shower, eat, and sleep in between. things will slow down after tomorrow, for a little bit at least, but it’s been a busy week. .. it always is though, isn’t it? also, i got a cheesemaking kit ~ very excited about that but so far just a lot of sighing as i look through the instructions.
oh! good news: i’m a substitute librarian for my local county’s library system :) i applied for the job a while back, forgot about it for a while, and then, months later, was interviewed and a few weeks later offered the position. it’s a very flexible job that allows me to travel all around the county, getting a feel for the different branches. it pays well and it’s a union job, yay. i don’t start for a few weeks still, but wow, in just a little over a month, i went from no jobs to two jobs, albeit both part-part-time. phew!
here’s some nice pics of some family babies & me from this past weekend. i’m trying to use my camera more, but it’s so easy to forget and be lazy about it. btw, since i don’t have photoshop access right now, i used picnik for free online editing of my photos. very handy.
lastly, to each one of you who read this, reading about me and my life, thank you ~ you all rock.

update: hmph! i just found out that i haven’t been getting some email recently.. i use gmail for all my various email accounts – i just forward everything to gmail – and, for some reason, lately it’s been taking a few days to get certain account’s emails to me. grumble grumble. so, if you haven’t heard from me, give me a couple days to figure this out, or leave a comment here, thanks.
Yay for job opportunities! Both sound so pleasant. The kiddos are adorable, and it sounds like you are settling in a bit – after all, you’re making cheese!
Hey sweets. i emailed you-let me know if they came through
it is so nice that things are coming together in a way that makes you happy and that you get to be home around family, with the little loves. but damn, i miss you.
You’re doing far too many interesting things over there- wish I were doing the same! Adorable kiddies, BTW. Glad you’re having some fun!
