I started 2013 gleefully telling my Big Boss that I planned to retire in September. Looking down the months from January to September I thought the time would never pass.
I was able to look around and say goodbye to the library and its denizens and think warm fuzzy thoughts, especially at the end.
My plans for how to structure my days have worked out perfectly.
As I look back on the year, everything is suffused with a very happy feeling of contentment that I have been able to snuggle down at home, cook, bake, plan my garden, work on crafts, take lots of breaks to daydream...
I have been in one of those odd periods for awhile where I didn't read much, but now I'm in that ideal state where you put down one book and happily pick up another. That's the life for me.
Wishing you the very best in 2014, Librarian D.O.A.
