I know I haven’t updated in a while as life all of a sudden shifted. The first week of August we received a termination of the lease on the place we were living at for almost five years time. We weren’t in a spot to up and buy a house and the time to move out didn’t lend us to do so either. Through a lot of searching, seeking the Lord’s will, and letting go, we ended up in an apartment. It isn’t where I personally would have liked to end up in but it was the best choice for our family for now.
It’s been a hot Summer so far, no doubt. One of these ways we beat the heat this month was taking a trip up to Portland to visit the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. Fun, learning, and air conditioning? Yes, please.
Our Family tradition of picking berries happened this week. Click to see my u-pick post from 2017.
We were blessed with the cooler weather which was welcome after the upper 90s-100 degree temperatures we’ve been having as of late. We almost didn’t make it because my oldest had been fighting a viral stomach thing that had her not feeling well for three days straight. She’s still getting back into the swing of things and we are praying for a full speedy recovery right now.
These very full roses have been blooming since we’ve been renting this duplex (4.5 years now).
I’m not sure how old they are but even when cutting all the way back they re-emerge every Spring and bloom until Autumn.
Not surprisingly, a library in operation today looks a lot different from a library operating 100 years ago. So, if you want to become a librarian, it’s best to know a little about the services provided by this professional in the 21st century. Look at five examples of services provided by today’s librarians.
Recommendation of Authors
A librarian recommends authors to people visiting the library. For example, a visitor may ask a librarian to recommend an author who writes suspenseful fiction, westerns or romance novels. A knowledgeable librarian will be able to recommend authors who are writing in various genres. Part of a librarian’s preparation for the job is to stay informed about authors working in many areas of the literary world and understanding the impact of books on people’s lives. In addition, it’s important for a librarian to be reading the latest novels as well as the classics to become a knowledgeable individual working in this profession.
A winter storm arrived a few days ago and to the delight of many, we received several inches of snow strung out over a couple of days. Snow is a lot of fun to play in and look at but not so fun to drive in. My husband had to stay home from work because the roads were a mess and we live up a hill that can be treacherous when there’s a mix of ice and snow upon it.
