Volunteerism

My daughter started a volunteer job at our local library today. She will be working in the historical archives section, most likely photocopying and scanning materials for the digital archive. This is what she will be doing for most of the summer. She won’t be getting paid but she is excited because she knows she will be getting more out of this than a measly pay check. Some benefits for having young people volunteering: They increase their knowledge and experience…

My sister has a treadmill in her bedroom. She swears she uses it often enough to warrant the space, but every time I’ve gone into her room, the only thing I see on the thing is clothes and shopping bags. lol!

My cousin from Japan was here the last few days for a visit, so we decided to show her around and also show her a good time. When I arrived last weekend, my sister was cleaning up her house and getting her guest room ready. She was also dusting off the patio furniture for the cook out she was going to have to welcome our cousin. Tweet
