The long weekend is here... and so is the rain! The day is mine, so the weather can do whatever it likes! Yesterday, I worked a few hours in a bookshop in my neighborhood where I got myself an on-call job. It's run by a husband-and-wife team who split the week between them. They need me, they call me, and then they leave it up to me when to go in and how much work to do on any given day. Just perfect.
I unpacked, priced, and shelved schoolbooks from kindergarden to grade 8. (I love that clicking price-tag thingy.) I learned and operated the till, and enjoyed helping customers with the books they wanted, too. I know my books. Best of all, it's a five-minute walk from home.
Lilacs from the roadside. They were languishing on the side of the grounds of my building where the TTC has been doing roadworks, so I brought some home.
