Sleeping in

Yay for sleeping in on the weekend!

spot on the couch w ipad and coffee

And time to hang out on the couch with my coffee and read blogs.

Alert! Squirrel on the porch!

I know something’s up when all three rush to the window. Alert the media – a squirrel is on the porch!

Bye bye Jetta

The Jetta got taken away Saturday – donated. It just got too expensive to maintain. It was a very good car for 13+ years.

Go Bears!

Afternoon football – too bad the Bears were no match for Ohio State this year.

Prosecco and limoncello - yum

Hurray for Sunday Brunch.

Sunday knitting

And Sunday knitting.


Sigh. Boyz. Just no words.

Well that’s that. A week in the life. I’m glad I got through it, thanks for playing along.

Breakfast - granola, blueberries, bananas and yogurt

I was so happy when Friday finally came. What a week. Here are some of the main moments from the day.

Books delivered


Lunch at the desk

Lunch at the desk

Harvested tuna (prickly pear)

Taking a break for a walk, I noticed the tuna (cactus fruit) had been harvested.


I have to remember that taking breaks is important.

one of the last few

Leaving work I see that most have left ahead of me. Bad habit of mine when I get busy is not noticing the time.


Home to put away dishes;

feed the kitties

and feed the kitties.

Dinner out

Thank goodness hubby wanted to have a nice dinner out.

Week in the Life | Thursday

Valeri morning cuddle

I’m not a morning person. Really, I’m not. However, I get up at about 5:10 am so I can get a little fun time into my day.

Washing greens for salad lunch

I also have more time to put a healthy lunch together.

Picking up the papers

Work duties start by picking up the newspapers.

Opening the library

Then I open up the library. Here are a few more of the workday’s activities which involve…

The cart

driving the cart down to campus,

Law library

visiting branch libraries;

Movable stacks

& picking up books.

the view again

I decided to go for a mini photo walk at lunch to refresh a bit.

Olive tree

orange with a bee

back to the desk.

Then back to the desk.

afternoon coke and meeting notes

Finally home and Ginny’s on the table.

She's not supposed to be on the table

She knows she’s not supposed to be up there. But she’s all “What? Something wrong?”

popcorn fresh

Yay for “Movie on the Square” night and fresh! popcorn.

Movie on the Square: 42

I was happy to see that 42 got a good turnout. Overheard: Man, Harrison Ford is old!
