Thankful Thursday 10/19/2017

I can't believe it's Thursday again and we're halfway through the month. Only 12 more days until Halloween!

With that said, I am thankful for my co-worker that brought me in Halloween decorations for my desk. Since we have a new regime, we have to keep our desks conservative. I didn't go all out this year, but the decorations that were given to me make my desk look awesome. I love Halloween.

(I brought in the bear - Julie and Ghoulie are part of my Bearington Bears collection)

It has also been another peaceful week and I'm thankful. On Tuesday night, I listened to WRTI on the app and Mimi cuddled with me. When Mimi cuddles with me, it makes me feel good. I am thankful for that.

The head HR woman also wrote my letter for the future, then apologized that it wasn't done sooner, apologized for the refusal, and wished me much luck. I am thankful that I now have the letter. I will be taking things one day at a time for now on.

I also added yesterday's picture (and entry, which can be seen here) to my happiness box:

What are you thankful for today?

Selfies with People I Meet

Yesterday Barb, my friend Joyce's mom, to participate in the b & w picture challenge. I'm going to use this challenge to tell you about a cool incident that happened after work and before my library job.

7 days 7 random B&W photos of my life. Selfies with people I randomly meet. Usually I meet people on my travels and ask for selfies. Today, however, I was waiting for the train after my full time job and this guy asked me a question. He had a British accent and we talked about the UK. His name is Laramie and he's from Reading (UK). What a nice guy. He just got off of the train - he heads back tomorrow. I love how I can chat with others and I'm glad they agree to selfies. 😁🤗 Day 2 of 7.

Except that Google didn't save the b & w picture I edited on Instagram...

Halloween Greeting Cards

We're 16 days away from Halloween! Halloween is my holiday and I just love this time of year. Last Saturday, I received a Halloween card from Brooke. I am thankful for Brooke's friendship and I'm thankful for the lovely card.

I also sent Brooke a card last week. Tomorrow I am sending Michelle, a friend from Toronto, a card and next week I am giving Christina a card. Let me share the cards with you. (Yes, I am a fiend for cards, I love sending them.)

Michelle's card

Christina's card

Next Sunday when I see Christina, I will give it to her. I know that she will love it.

Are you planning on sending any cards? What are some of your Halloween traditions?

Academy of Natural Science's Member's Night | Friday, October 13th (Picture Entry)

I'm glad that the Academy of Natural Science had their Member's Night on Friday the 13th. I loved their spooky chemistry experiments and the creepy behind the scenes fun throughout the other departments.

Also, the library showed us how to use the Cutter System to come up with call numbers. Since I work part-time in a library, the head librarian loved explaining things to me because as she mused: "you're one of the few people I've talked to tonight whose eyes haven't glazed over when explaining this system." It was easy once I got used to it. Now I know even more. Maybe someday I'll get a MLIS, but wherever I move to.

I had a lot of fun. I love being a member of the Academy of Natural Sciences.
