Happy birthday to phoenixfiredesigns!!! Clyde and I did wrap a present today... but unfortunately it wasn't for PFD. My supervisor at the library had a baby shower today (but I couldn't go, so I'm taking her gift to work tomorrow).

FIRE!!!!!

Yeah, no, seriously, there was a fire at work today. Just a little one, though. An outlet blew out and shut off ten of the library computers. An electrician was at a computer nearby and stomped out the fire, and we had Facilities come fix the outlet. Still... very exciting.

I snapped a photo of Clyde with the offending outlet before we left for the day:


There's a tiny scorch mark but otherwise fine and dandy, with a brand new cover!

The cake was delish! (I just had some for breakfast...)

Last night we went to the beach for dinner, so Clyde got to see the Oceanfront!



And, because Fiance's dad parked on the roof of the parking garage, I got a "high places" photo for the challenge!

Fiance's birthday is tomorrow and he's working until 1am, so I decided to make his cake tonight so it'll be waiting for him when he gets home! Clyde was very helpful:

Oooh I have a perfect high place in mind! But only if the weather gets better...

In the meantime, Clyde had some fun before we went in to work today. In Virginia Beach, we have dolphin statues everywhere, decorated by local artists to show important things in the city. The community college I work at has one on campus:

Oh wow!  So many fantastic pictures lately, everyone!  And so many great photographers!!!

Alexampersandra, I cannot imagine moving an entire library's worth of books!  In college, I worked in the music library and it took FOREVER one time when we were moving just one section into a storage facility!

I'm hoping to be around enough (since I'm part-time) to get some photos of the process! We hired a moving company, as far as I know, but it will still be quite an undertaking.

Plus, the week after we take away all their books, we'll be starting a new computer system that makes patrons log in every time they want to use a computer... I feel like I'm going to get a lot of complaints this summer...

On a happier note, Clyde helped me make dinner tonight. (It's a little sad that this is such a rare occasion, I photographed it.)

I received an awesome package from texscrapper!!! Let's take a look, shall we?


First, once I cut the tape on the box, POOF! Two pillow forms popped out! They were for cushioning the...


..beautiful glass jar full of whimsy!


Look at all the tiny fun! I can't even pick favorites, but I'll try... the tiny wooden hearts off to the left, two tiny leaf buttons under them and the letters that spell my name right above them... the cowrie shells... the elongated star buttons... the sparkly little Christmas tree near the bottom right...


But wait, there's MORE! A whole pile of translucent blue letters! Plus the rest of the letters, all of which I ADORE. And fun bright guitar picks! Look at the tree! EVERYTHING ELSE! But that's still not all...


Tiny picture frames!!! Because I'm making our wedding centerpieces out of an eclectic collection of all shapes/sizes/designs of photo frames!!! And these are SO PERFECT. These are exactly what I would have picked out myself! Also, the zippered pouch!!! I didn't take a photo of it but the inside is a beautiful bright blue that is just perfect.

What an amazing package! Thank you so much texscrapper!  Grin

I know I've been a little quiet but it was a crazy week (end of the semester, I went to a concert Tuesday, etc etc)... but here is my challenge photo for WORK:



I set up that display in the library in March. (It actually needs to come down, but we're moving our ENTIRE collection in a little over a week to the new library, so we're just leaving it up until then.) It was my first display! Do you see Clyde peeking out of the middle?

What beautiful sharp objects!!! Those are lovely!

I've had some opportunity to meet this week's challenge about weather... lots of rain and clouds and a freak cold snap (back to the 50s from the 80s).



I took this before I left work yesterday.

I got to leave work early today, so I got a little crafting done. And it looks so lovely out the window, I took a photo of Clyde helping me:



(That's a practice katana behind him... It isn't sharp but it is quite heavy.) And now it's time to grab that book on the left and go sit on the porch until it's time to figure out what's for dinner!
