That's Good!

A Holiday of Many colors.

Yes, that was good.  I came into work and found that all the bookshelves had been stocked, and half the remaining books had been priced.  Very good actually.

I got myself out there into the store and radically rearranged the bookshelves so there would be more room.  Whee….and got all the priced books out, shelved, and on display.  That was really good.  Today is the last day of the book sale before the massive 50% off everything in the store sale tomorrow.  The book sale has been a success as viewed by the empty shelves in back, and that is very, very good.

I like volunteering there.  I think I am making a difference.

Not so good, my notes are way down in OD since our vacation.  I went away and my readership vanished.  Not in Blogger tho.  I meet new friends there almost every day, and there I seem to be the one who has less time to note. 

I remember when I got my first computer.  All I wanted to do was go to online AA meetings.  And I did.  Now days my life online has expanded exponentially.  There’s AA, and writing, and blogging, and a second, mirror blog because the first kept collapsing with a certain regularity, and friends, and Facebook for work and home, and best of all I use the computer as a tool.

I pant to keep up with myself.  All this is very, very good indeed.

  • Keeping those on the east coast in my thoughts.  Loved what of the concert we could stay awake for.
  • Himself:  ”Okey dokey, poop poop, de, poop.”  Obviously better.
  • Herself:  Not sleeping well.  I don’t know why.  Not good that I cannot leave notes on Xanga and Diaryland without elaborate preparation.  I refuse to join them.  Darn.
  • Reading:  Nothing….imagine.
  • Balance:  Knowing how blessed we are.  Just today.


  1. I am so glad you blog. Without that, would we have become friends?

  2. I always enjoy reading your blog. Hope you keep it up.

  3. Thought of you today. Will share with David he can check out AA online. Any special link? (send info to my email address).


  4. You have been pushing those books very well. I still wish I could be there to peek into those books myself.

  5. I am envious of your feeling useful in your volunteer work. I am feeling a bit useless and not so happy with my volunteer efforts. I really would like to do something else, but do not have a good direction to go. Glad the books and G are doing better. What in the heck is OD? Is that part of your AA blog?

  6. I love how you keep yourself productively busy. I also love your profile photo! Lovely!


What a delight to get a note from you. Thanks for leaving one.
