Onward and upward

The past week has been full of good things.

Last weekend, my husband and I celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary by taking a short trip to Cuyahoga Valley National Park, which is situated between Cleveland and Akron in Ohio. It’s an interesting park, because it is very much an urban park, but it’s still beautiful and the hiking trails are lovely.

On Monday I began in my new position as the clerical specialist at a new library branch. This promotion comes with more responsibilities and duties, and I’m excited to really dig into it. My first week has been a time of observation, getting to know the library, some of our patrons, and my new coworkers. I’ve learned a lot already, and I know I’m going to learn and grow so much more.

I’m also trying to expand my regular writing gigs to challenge myself, meet new people, and generally be an engaged literary citizen rather than just a blogger/writer of weird fictions.

And in addition to all that, I’m trying to build a daily yoga practice and hopefully begin riding my bike to work, at least when the weather permits.

All of this adds up to a lot of time, though, so expect me to be scarce while I find my footing. I’m going to bump down to a three-day-per-week posting schedule on this blog for now, and hopefully once I’m settled into my new routine I’ll be able to add more back in.

What do you think?
