This week started out rough (summer heat and humidity = ugh), but is ending pretty great. :) Enjoy! Since summer starts next week and I'll be taking a break every three months, I won't return until July 11th officially. I'll do a special blog party for my birthday, July 4, however! Stay tuned for July 4!

It poured and whenever it pours, the downspout from the porch shoots water at full force. I thought this was cool.

As I posted for Thankful Thursday, when John handed me this DVD... it made me so happy. I'm thankful for him, the Center, and everyone else who makes a positive difference in my life.
My library boss gave me a new task. Since I know how to use a typewriter and love using typewriters, I had the duty of looking for inter-library loans, typing the address labels on the typewriter, and packing them up to ship the books.

Despite the heat, I took a walk. It was really hot.

Went to Philadelphia to get my SEPTA pass before work, Had breakfast at Cappriccio's. So good!
Another sweltering day that resulted in downpours. Still really hot.

I caught the 7 AM bus. Although I wasn't supposed to meet Claire until 10:30/11 AM at the Exton Square Mall, I had a hankering going to Everhart Park. Everhart Park is one of the couple of "safe" places for me in West Chester. Would I make a habit of going often? No. I avoid town, and minimal amount of time there is good for me. So, after I had coffee at Starbuck's, I took a walk to Everhart Park. It was 8:30 AM; I think with how early it was, that's why I felt at ease I guess (early and not many people in town).
I went swinging and as I went swinging, the breeze played with my hair. I had my iPod blasting as I was so high up in the air. Ironically, as I was high in the sky, "Let It Go" began playing. You know, from Frozen. After Let It Go, I leaped from the swing and noticed people setting things up. There was a race at 10:30 for a fund for a small girl that died in a car accident in 2007. They wanted me to run, but I told them I had a commitment. I donated money and they gave me a shirt. I figured doing something nice that contributes to a good cause could replace one really bad memory. Who knows if it makes sense, but I was thinking about that. I then went back to the bus stop and boarded the bus to the Exton Square Mall at 9:30 AM.
Yep, I brought Wesley Bear and Baymax for an adventure!
This is reminiscent of the picture I took of Christina a few times during college:
The red bench has always been my favorite. :) (These photos are from 2013)
Claire and I met up around 10:50 AM. We went shopping, to the Chester County Library, had lunch, and just talked. It was a nice day out. It was a lot of fun and it cheered us both up.
She loved her gift! YAY! This calls for a tea party soon at the Lincoln Room! :)
Claire looking lovely in the scarf.
And very beautiful in the dress!
Claire and Wesley.

Baymax was envious of my bento box.
My favorite shirt! :)
Although I live in Montgomery County and work for a Montgomery County branch library, I did get a Chester County Library card as well. I figured since I have been looking at FT library jobs at the Exton Library, it would look good. I also loved the selection of books, CDs, and DVDs they had, and well, I really wanted to check out the Arabic documentary!
Looking forward to watching it tomorrow. :)
Can't wait to see what next week brings! :) Have a great week, y'all! See you again for the blog party on July 11th (and a special one for my birthday, the 4th)! ~ Jessica
