The Bear Necessities

May 24, 2015

Friday Front Doors locked and office closed from 8:00-9:00 and closed at 1:00 (EC side only)

Our families often come up to pick up leftover items, the window for answering the door will be shorter than normal. Teresa, Kerry and Jeanie will do their best all afternoon to answer phones and door.

This Summer....

I wish you a summer filled with time for you. I wish you rest and relaxation. I wish you time to reconnect with those you love and time to connect with new friends. I wish you a day of doing nothing but what you want (a big challenge). I wish you gratitude and getting into the habit of writing in a journal (we know it will be a good for you habit). I wish you time to do what you rarely get to do, but love. I wish you the happiest of summers, you deserve it!


Please know that Lori and I are here through June, then Kim and I are here daily. Have a new idea, wish, dream, gripe session you've been meaning to have...we are here!! And those swings down by the pond make a great location for a summer meeting!!

One of my Summer Goals:

I hope to figure out how to listen to audio books and podcasts. I love to listen to books on CD in my car (stop laughing, I'm old, and I'm kinda proud it's not a cassette tape). But I hate getting out of my car when the story is really good, the answer, audio books on my phone that I can listen to in my car by Bluetooth and on my phone while I'm doing chores! I've attached a few podcasts below, just in case you are as techno challenged as I am! Feel free to share your favorites on our "2018 Summer Reading Staff Recommendations" google doc!

New Laptop

DO NOT STORE ONE SINGLE PIECE OF PAPER INSIDE YOUR LAPTOP...it will break!! This is a habit of many and we need to work hard to change our habits. THANKS
