Welding Goggles

I have my welding goggles for my Halloween costume!

I'm going to be Ramona Flowers... so it'll look better with the blue hair. But they're legit welding goggles, so if I need to do any welding anytime soon, I'm so ready.

I work in a joint-use library, so we're part community college, part public. I went to a meeting at another public branch last week, and I got to see their AMH! We have one too (they put one in our brand-new building to see if they liked it before they started adding it to the other branches). AMH stands for Automated Materials Handling, and it's the system that automatically checks in your books when you put them in the book drop, and sorts them based on where they need to go next. It's pretty cool to watch, and theirs is a little fancier than ours.

Damson wanted to ride on the conveyor belt, but that would have been extremely dangerous for him, so we had to watch from the side.

Damson and the Dumplings

This week's challenge is to post a photo of our LVs participating in our hobbies! Since I'm a cooking fiend (go check out my food blog, Look I Made Dinner!) I let Damson help us make Chinese dumplings last night with my new bamboo steamer!

Here's a picture of the finished product, too!

Cassy's Wedding!

My friend Cassy got married this past weekend! It was beautiful and lovely, and I told her that of course I was bringing my LVs with me, and she was very excited about that. Damson even matched the purple-and-orange color scheme!

Pretty banner out in front of the library where the ceremony was held

Handley Regional Library in Winchester, VA... beautiful!

Bookish centerpieces!

Orange-flavored cake! YUM!

My LVs congratulate the bride

Kiss from the bride!
It was lovely, and great fun, and Damson seemed to enjoy himself quite a bit.
