Oh my gosh, friends, this has without a doubt been the most boring week of my whole life. Throw in a little "spring fever" and it has been almost unbearable. Everyone is enjoying this wonderful weather we've been having (sunny in the high 70s/low 80s) and going to the library is not a priority for anyone. People are dropping off books and leaving. Right now I am at lunch and when I left the front desk there were 2 (count them 2) people in the building. Most of the last hour there was 1 and at one point NONE.
It wouldn't be so bad if I were at my own branch where I could find something to keep me occupied. But there is NOTHING to do here. Can I shelve for you? "All done." Library cards to make up? "Done that." Do you want me to shelf read? "We did that earlier this week." So for my time off of the desk I have been roaming the internet looking at various things.
To make matters worse, it's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. I am purposely not going outside because I know I would not want to come back. Richmond, my home branch has been RED HOT all week. Whew. Today at the Fishtown Branch they have the air conditioning on and it is ICE COLD. Go figure.
So enough of my grumbling. Just a few more hours and I can go home, put on a t-shirt, shorts and my flip-flops and make barbecued chicken legs on the grill. Yes, folks, we have decided that tonight is the night to fire up that baby and indulge in some good eating. (And Elaine, Larry and Marion I know you are reading this -- I am making my world-famous potato salad.)
Have a good rest of the day everyone. Even though it is going to get colder this weekend (and the coming week), I am still going to enjoy my time off tomorrow and Sunday.
