That was a good night shift. I have been working in the CCU a lot over the summer, and last night was one of the first shifts in ages that we all weren't run off our feet. The patients were all stable, most of them slept, and we actually had time to play around with the new IV pumps that we went live with this week. It was nice. Things must have picked up since 7a.m., because so far today I've had calls from staffing asking if I would work a)tonight b)tomorrow days c)tomorrow night. And that was for CCU. ICU called as well. The ICU was insanely busy last night. I declined all offers, because I am booked for two nights this weekend, and I've decided I don't have to work every time they ask. I've gotten into the habit of taking on more work than I actually need to keep the finances steady, so I think I'm going to cut back just a bit. I am retired, after all. heh.

Went for my annual mammogram this afternoon. It's a bit uncomfortable, but was over quickly, and they have the new digital imaging XRay machine so I could see the pictures on the screen. Quite neat.

Cleaned up the apartment, made dinner, watched a little TV, finished the book I've been reading (a mystery by Rhys Bowen, quite light and enjoyable)so I can take it back to the library before I have to pay a fine, and that's about it for today.

I'm doing a Farscape rewatch, inspired by my friend Rob's rewatch and blog about the episodes. I haven't watched it for a couple of years, but it remains one of those shows that pulls me in every time. It's truly brilliant stuff, and Ben Browder and Claudia Black have the most amazing chemistry. Love it.

I think I'm going to have to find a copy of Frozen and watch it before the new season of Once Upon a Time starts. I really don't have any idea about the story, so I guess I'd better do the homework. Right, Masq? LOL.

The first storm of the fall came upon us yesterday. I was out at the farm, and the sky was black as we brought the horses in. We had just finished all the work when the sky opened and water poured down. We brought my two in from the field; they weren't keen on coming in, but I didn't want them out if the night was going to be nasty. They were predicting as much as 50 mm of rain overnight in the Valley.

I still have many squash. I'm starting to store them in the garage now, as they're winter squash and should keep. My friends are starting to avoid me! Can only push so many squash on them, LOL. The rest of my garden is still doing well and hopefully the warm fall will mean the growing season lasts into October.

Time for my next episode of Farscape.
