Ah well… I didn’t manage to write this weekend, but honestly I was so busy that I really didn’t have a lot of time. It was a great weekend, though. The big exciting news is that I was appointed Library Director! I met with a few Board members Tuesday night and was offered the job and then on Saturday they had a meeting and officially appointed me. I celebrated on Sat. night by going out to dinner with a friend I haven’t seen in months, then Sunday was all about taking care of grocery shopping and chores.
Today was my first day in my new role so I am just now getting around to blogging. I actually had to head out super early this AM to drop off my car at the dealership to have some work done, so between that and a full day at work I am so ready to wind down!
As usual, I am linking up with Sandra at Diary of a SAHM for Happy Homemaker Monday.
Today was beautiful, but it is going to get nasty and hot again. I’m over the summer weather, let me tell you.

I didn’t have time to eat this morning, so I just grabbed a latte on the way from the dealership to work

I started knitting that shawl this weekend and I’m having the hardest time with it, so I ripped it all back and I need to take a step back before I pick it up again.
Looking forward to:::
Seeing my friends on Sunday afternoon for drinks and appetizers!
Looking around the house:::
Gotta do the dinner dishes. Gotta put the laundry away. Everything is kind of a mess, but that’s OK — I’ll get used to my new schedule and get back on track.
From the camera:::
4th of July fireworks
What I’m wearing today:::
Skinny jeans, leopard print ballet flats, and a new tiered button top. I bought this one in yellow yesterday and I got so many compliments on it! I love the mustard yellow color!
One of my simple pleasures:::
An empty, clean sink when I go to bed (which is even better when I wake up in the morning and it’s still empty & clean!
