Coming up for air or Good Lord, it's November already!

The Quilted Librarian has been absent from the cyber realm of late, but we have definitely turned the corner at school in terms of getting things moved where I want them and arranging the library media center the way I want it.  Last week, I actually came home right after school twice!

Last weekend, Jim and I had a wonderful breakfast reunion with my childhood friend, Laurel Lea Schaefer.  We went to Bexley High School, attended the Columbus Junior Theatre (now called the Columbus Children's Theatre), and did lots of plays together.  In 1972, she became Miss America and after she finished the responsibilities of that job, she moved to California.  While we  hadn't seen each other in many years, we always kept in snail mail and email touch, but it was delightful to catch up in person.  Jim took the photo of the two of us above and Laurel took this great shot of Jim and me.

This weekend, Jim and I are enjoying some unstructured time--he's in his study finding music for the play he's directing and I'm finally back in my studio trying to get back on track there.  Hoping you are all enjoying a restful and productive weekend.

Thanks, Mary. I feel like I turned a corner last week with my work at school, so I'm looking forward to making it a habit to leave right after school!
Love all your wonderful new work on Flickr, BTW.
Warmest regards,
