I had a short day at work today. I collected samples and did a couple treatments. I went back to the office. I have 'comp time' to burn, so I took the afternoon off. I went to comfort a friend, a librarian. Librarians are a fun crowd to hang out with, turns out. I took in a pizza. We all sat around in the staff room, swapping stories and laughing like crazy, and no one was shushed. Leaving the staff break room, I noticed that the "Book Cellar" was open. The book seller was a genial soul and I walked out of there with a pile of library books offered up for sale. I came home to my empty house and curled up on the sofa with my books as it rained without ceasing outside.
Days like this are good for the soul.
