others. The aftermath of the party and the beginning of tax season. Heard some reviews of the party - seemed to go well. Nice to go back to the way it was - simple and enjoying every one's company. Next the housekeeper helped to get my life back in order - it is one of my greatest treats for me, once a month, I'm forced to pick-up, clean-up and then the magic of the housekeeper - viola! Nothing gets too far out of order.
A sense of order - it is truly the peace I enjoy. Life has too much chaos, responsibilities to others, and then some.
Friday night was the Friends of the Library Wine & Cheese event. It's a fundraiser, ticketed event, small attendance about 150 folks, and they raffle off literary baskets of goodies. It is a chance to mingle with folks in town and as a Library Trustee, thank them for coming to the event and supporting the Library. We invited our new Representative to the State House, Gary Byron to attend. I made sure he was introduced to all the Library folks - director, assistance director, FOL president, Board president, etc. A few of the RTCs and elected officials showed up along with the DTCs and elected officials. A good time was had by all. It was pretty much over in a little over two hours.
Lately every event seems to have a taint of political to it. After the town folks defeated the referendum 6 to 1, and then beating the DTC's candidate for the Representative seat in every district including her's - this town is just not going to take it any more. The town folks are 'sick and tired' of the increasing taxes with NO difference in services - possibly a decrease in services.
We were able to raise the Library budget in the pre-lim meeting, completed several other items for the PEP committee, the snow above.... worked on a crochet project....... all in all, another great week. Now let's see how this week comes with snow predicted for Monday / Tuesday / Wednesday..... we are looking to get two feet! Yippie!!!
doing what makes you smile,
and loving the life you live.
