It is becoming very clear (this week anyways) that Spring is close by here in New England. Last week snow, this week lovely lovely lovely. Yesterday, we took a ride to a great college town, and many of the young girls were in tank tops waiting in line outside the Irish pubs. People were everywhere (after all it was 58 degrees here --nearly a heat wave). My husband and I had the best window seat in the house at a favorite restaurant of ours, and we had the best time--people watching (that's why I love the beach so much). Are you a people watcher?
This week I have an interview for a full-time library position (it's been 10 years since I worked full-time, and (10) months since I worked at all. I'll share more info about this when I know more. I do have a pressing question though to those of you who work outside of the home.
- If you work outside of the home, how many hours do you work, and on average, how many hours do you get to read on work days? (You see what my concerns are about this job)...LOL
Speaking of reading, how was your week in books? The last (2) books I read this week were non fiction, and they more than satisfied the "animal lover" in me.
