Seriously, it is FINDING MONTH and we haven't even had a Festival/Carpet Cleaning/Mess Week wrap-up yet!
I asked Photographer to take some pictures of my Library when it's a Big Mess. On Festival Saturday (which, in feline time, was about four months ago) AB Karen has the library carpet cleaned. This is a one-time-a-year thing, so my staff huffs and puffs and moans and groans and moves ALL (well, most) of the furnitures off of the carpet. Except for things like book cases and hundred-year-old desks and stuff.
Here are a bunch of chairs To Be Cleaned:
Here is part of my Library minus Stuff:
Here is Stuff in weird places:
While all of the carpet cleaning FUN was going on in my Library (and under my supervision), my staff was busy Floating in the Thorntown Festival of the Turning Leaves Parade.
Here's some of my library staff. We have Little Red Riding Hood (and Big Bad
The Thorntown Heritage Museum entered a Float in the Parade, too. It features two barn quilts that are going to be on the Boone County Barn Quilt Trail someday.
AB Karen is frowning at the sunshine--but it was the only picture Photographer had that didn't show someone's backside. I was a-ok with showing backsides (mine is on here all the time!), but ladies seem to take issue with that sort of thing. Huh.
After all of the Floating and Book Sale-ing and Carpet Cleaning, it was time to move the furnitures back on Monday morning. This would be everyone's most favorite day of the year to call in sick--but they don't, because the rest of the staff would know that the "sick" person is full of malarkey!
Every furniture gets polished and shined and put back in its proper place. Here I am investigating a printer cabinet that hasn't quite made its way home yet:
The worst thing about the whole process is that it becomes very difficult for a BossCat to find a comfortable place the sit. The desks can get downright Dangerous. It's a good thing I'm so brave and mancatly!
There you have it! My re-cap of Festival of the Turning Leaves/Book Sale/Carpet Cleaning/Mess Week! If you will notice, it was very light on the "Book Sale"--that's because we had lots of super Volunteers who set up the Book Sale, watched over it during the weekend, and helped to dismantle it and box up the leftovers. AAB Photographer and the rest of my Assistants are very thankful for our Friends of the Library and volunteers.
That was a Huge post--I need a nap!
Oh, and do you know what TOMORROW is????
