Don’t worry folks, it’s a pun! We’re on strike at my place of work.
(I just love this picture I snapped of a colleague. She made this flag herself! In case the symbolism is lost on you, we’re both librarians).
I’m not the type of person to deal with this well. Four hours a day on the picket line is surprisingly exhausting, but I find my Type A personality makes me a little stir crazy after a couple of hours once I’m back at home. You’d think I’d be knitting, but I actually tend to knit to relax and unwind at the end of a work day. No work day = wired Erin = must partake of active pastimes. So far I’ve cleaned the entire apartment, caught up on all of the laundry, concocted a recipe (see previous blog entry) and baked not once but twice. I blame the baking on my developing Pinterest obsession. First came a rather complex (for me, anyway – two different glazes!) lemon cake, and then muffins. And it’s only Thursday.
Cleaning the apartment lead to a sobering discovery. This is how much yarn I own:
Oh no, that’s not all. See the edge of the chair with the grey and cream afghan over it in the top right of the above photo? Well, this is what’s behind it:
The fiancé doesn’t know about this secret hiding spot.
Well, now I definitely won’t feel tempted to buy more yarn during the strike…
Striking is no fun. But sometimes things like that are neccessary. Glad you still have your sense of humour! You are a ‘no reply’ blogger, so I can’t answer your comments left on my blog. Can you change that?
Thanks 🙂 That’s weird that I’m a no reply blogger. I’ll have a look at my settings.

1. I’m really really really hoping the strike turns out well. The TPL is such a wonderful system and I’ve been so frustrated at the nonsense lately.
2. I’m glad I found you (first on tumblr, then here)! I’m not a current librarian (I’m in immigration limbo, with my year-old MLS just chilling in my filing cabinet waiting on my work permit) but I’m always trying to find more GTA library folks. Hi!
Thanks for the support 🙂
Oh immigration limbo. I am familiar with it, having had friends go through it, not to mention a lot of the patrons in the neighbourhood our branch is in.
Glad to meet you too! Bonus – you have wonderful content on your blog and Tumblr 😉
