First Day of Fall

I cannot tell you how excited I am about this new season. Summer was long and exhausting. Here are some things I'm looking forward to:

- Fall Back: An extra hour of sleep and waking up after the sun comes up? Yes please.
- Hikes at the nearby park: I like walking through the woods more than walking around my neighborhood.
- Taking more photos: I feel more energetic when it's not 100 degrees outside.
- Carnivals: Every year we meet up w/ dad and we visit the carnival. It's a nice little tradition we have.
- New clothes: I'm going shopping for fall clothes this week and I'm stoked! I might even buy a bike! Yay!
- Traveling: I'm planning a trip up north to visit my family on Thanksgiving. Stoked again!
- Food: Making stews and chili again. Nom nom nom!

Also, I started a new blog. Like I need more to do, right? It's about my adventures around town and the surrounding areas:

Whatcha Been Up To Lately?

Last week was mighty busy, my friends, and I'm currently recovering from it. Today I took a long nap after dropping the kiddo off at school. I hate taking naps because it makes me feel so lazy and useless but today I needed it.

Look! See there's a bird on my finger. I'm slowly gaining his trust. Unfortunately I must've made him mad since he wants to bite my finger again. One step forward and two steps back, right?

I had an interview with the library last Wednesday and I think I did really well. I haven't had a job interview in over 9 years and I was really nervous. The library has an opening for a part-time circulation clerk and I really, really totally want the job. I think it'd be so cool to work at the library. Sadly, they want me to work everyday, including Fridays and that's the only day I work at the Arts Council. I can not stop working there. The Council is my thing, y'know, and I can't give it up. It's very important to me and even a part of my identity. So I don't know if the folks in charge at the library will see the the light (my very awesome light) and change the schedule around so I'm not needed on Fridays. I should hear from them before the end of the month.

I've got my fingers crossed but I can't be too hopeful. With the economy the way it is now, I'm sure they got over 50 applications for this part-time job.

That's just the way it is sometimes.

Introducing Chester


Look at that little face! Could you resist taking this cutie home?

Well, we sure couldn't. We were at the pet store buying treats for the bird and the other hamster. I always take a moment to peek at the little critters for sale and we spotted a very active, very cute Russian hamster. Daniel and I both AWWWWWWW-ed and Daniel says, "Let's take him home!" I was like, really? You willingly want to get a new critter? (Usually I just end up bringing them home w/o any warning.) And he says, "Sure, you have a cage, right?" Dang skippy I do! So we fill out paperwork, pay for him, and make our way home.

We've named him Chester. He's a bit nippy and scared of his new surroundings. His coat is beautiful. Daniel says he reminds him of an Ewok.

I've added him to
