Random Musings

Lots of little things tonight. For instance:

I've been sitting here watching my cats play with each other. It's so funny! They wrestle and jump on each other, and Leo has been entertaining himself with an empty gum wrapper. Angel decided to jump on his head and walk away. For a cat with such a "spread," Leo is extremely agile. And Angel is the quiet stalker, lying in wait to make her move. I think she makes Leo nervous. hehehe

Tomorrow is October 1, the first day of my favorite month of the year. I love everything about October - the crispness of the air, the riot of colors, the crunch of the fallen leaves, the sound the leaves make when the wind blows them across the driveway, street, or sidewalk. The way the wind makes less and less sound as there are less and less leaves on the trees. Instead of a rustling, the wind becomes more of a sigh, or a roar if it's a windy day. No other month has such a change in season and weather as October.

Our reviews of the library director are due tomorrow, and for those of you who have followed my stressful work environment this year, mostly told on MySpace, you'll know that the reviews are not going to be in her favor. Her behavior has not changed at all this year, becoming more erratic and passive-aggressive as the year has passed. I just hope the library board will read all of our reviews and realize that a change must happen.

(By the way, Leo has lost the gum wrapper in my tennis shoe, so now he's attacking the shoe. So far, the shoe is winning.)

Gillian is campaigning for student council president at school. Voting is Friday. She's worked hard on her speech and made posters, and she really REALLY wants to win. I hope to have good news to share sometime on Friday. Keep your fingers crossed for her!

(Oh - Leo won, the wrapper is out of the shoe. The game is on!)

Your cat tales are so fun to read. Makes me miss having a cat. Fortunately, our little dog more than makes up for the lack of cat playfulness. He's such a doggy and loves to chase his ball and destroy his doggy toys.

Best wishes on the librarian review/showdown. It's tough working in such an environment.

Hi Elaine.
How nice to read your random musings.
Good luck to Gillian. Give her a hug from me, will you :-)
