Friday Five, Finally

So, it turns out that transitioning takes a lot of time and energy, so I've been away from here for a bit. Also, we were away at a wedding for a few days.

Easing myself back in with a Hasty Friday Five seems like a good way to spend the last bits of a hasty lunch hour, so with no further ado, welcome to my day!

Today I am....
1. Wearing
Pink & white-striped shirt, khakis, and my tan socks with butterflies, and my always jewelry (engagement ring & wedding ring) . I chose the outfit because I knew I'd be moving boxes and unpacking boxes... and well, thats hard to do gracefully in a skirt. Oh! And very cute brown shoes that I love, but they're currently somewhere under my desk...

2. Reading
Preaching as Testimony, by Anna Carter Florence - I've been meaning to read it for months, but now I have conference deadline to help me along, and a whole lot of files for my new job

3. Eating
I just had Noodles & Co for lunch - and I'm very excited that I didn't add "mac & cheese" to the first category. That was a close one.

4. Doing
Um, blogging. Duh. But after that... see number 2 above.

5. Pondering
How to catalog the books I have for a resource center, how to set up my new office so that it has two functioning desks, how best to support friends who are hurting, and what it means to have a diocesan community rather than a congregation

Enough pondering though, time for more work.

well done on the lunch! That book sounds good- I may add it to my wish list! :-)

You sound very spiffy!

I'm reading ACFs book for the conference too! :-) It's been on the shelf for a while. Then came the email that said we should have it read ahead of time, and it got moved to the top of the "current" pile. So far I really like it.

For book cataloging, Booxter:

If you have an iSight on the computer, too, it'll scan the bar codes, look up the data (including cover photos) and enter it all in for you.

I've been using LibraryThing* and I love it. You can catalog up to 200 books for free, but a lifetime membership only costs 25 bucks, so I sprung for that. I ordered a barcode reader--it goes very fast when you can scan them. You can also insert tags and then search by them.

*don't work for them, don't profit by them...

I hope the new job is going well! I'd love to hear all about it!
