KNITTING GAL

January 14, 2008

Back on the Blog Roll............

I have been ignoring my blog- but with very good reasons.....holiday stuff, exhaustion, and then a bad head cold. Plus I couldn't get near a computer with the chicks home from college. We have three regular computers and two laptops and I couldn't use one of them for any length of time. And to top it off we were closed at work for three days to inventory around 30,000 books. I weeded about 40 boxes of books that haven't seen the light of day in five years. Then we moved bookcases and re arranged shelves to utilize the extra space. So I was too tired to even type last week. I feel asleep every night as soon as I came home. Woke up around 7:30PM, made dinner and then went back to bed. I think I am getting too old for such hands on work anymore. Thank heavens that I have two hard working gals with me and my chicks came in to help move the heavy stuff. Everything is spic and span and the patrons are enjoying the additional space. Libraries are hard work! Everyone thinks you sit around and read books all day-not hardly!



This is sweater vest for hubby. Back is finished and nearly done with front. I have been fooling around with the tessellating fish pattern. I have made about a half dozen and they are fun to make. Also I am trying to finish the gloves. I finished the thumb on the second glove and now must do the four fingers. I haven't been in the mood to knit lately. So that has been about all I have worked on.


I hope everyone is well and I will catch up with all my blog pals this week and then update for Dog's on Thursday. Thanks for being so patient and look forward to visiting with everyone.

Welcome back! We missed you, but it sounds like you have been BUSY!! I used to work in a library and I know it's not easy work for sure.

Rachel said...

Hey there! Glad to see you again--some of us were starting to worry! Hope you get some rest and your head cold subsides!

Cindy said...

Welcome back! Yes, library work is hard. I work in a library with only 3,000 volumes - I can't imagine 30,000!

I am so happy to see the new post. I was getting worried. Glad you're feeling better and that the hard work is over. Relax and knit.

I always wanted to be a librarian maybe I should re-think that. I guess I'll stay in my social work position. It's not always fun but not too many days of physical labor!

Sheila said...

I never would have guess that the little FH library had that many books! The town is lucky to have such a loyal and committed staff!
