Building the book Pile #143

Welcome to Building the Book Pile!  A Weekly meme inspired by Stacking the Shelves

Hello Readers, Bloggers, and Awesome people! 

Another late book pile, but I was VERY busy this weekend.. so it is ok, right?! This past week had a lot going on too, I was at the Formula Hybrid event Sun-Tuesday, it lasted til Thursday but I had to get back to my desk. I got home and all I wanted to do was sleep but Wednesday I had to catch up in the office :/. Thursday there was an after work Concert thing in the atrium of my work building and it was a STEM project collaboration with the Arts dept and the Engineering Dept and we wanted to show support by having a good showing of 'Engineering' people - I count since I work in that department. It was pretty cool, the engineering students made instruments and the musicians played them to a composed piece. Friday began the Alumni weekend here so there was the Chair's Challenge, this year that was human foosball and so I stayed late for that too. FINALLY the weekend - relax-y time right? Sadly NO, Saturday I ran errands all day and Sunday we spent the day putting a roof on the lean-to that will be the shed/deck for the grill. It was such a busy week. I am really hoping this week allows for some reading and some rest.

But until then, here are some pictures of all the things I have been up to :)
