A few Sunday random thoughts:
Yesterday was nice. I drove up to Olympia, Washington. I’ve got a couple of dear friends who live north of Seattle and every few months we get together. We meet up in Olympia because it’s almost exactly halfway between my house and the friend who lives farthest north.
It’s nice to have a long leisurely lunch with them. The bonus to the road trip is almost 4 hours of audiobook time.
There’s no college football to watch on weekends. I feel lost. Pretty soon we’ll hit that dead season of the year when ESPN starts trying to convince us that poker is a sport. Dear ESPN – it isn’t.
The sun is starting to come up before I get to work in the mornings and this week we had our first after 5pm sunset of the year. If I don’t stop for errands it’s not fully dark when I get home. Yay!!
My company moved to a new office the week between Christmas and New Year’s. There is still an ‘under construction’ feeling with a lot of finish work still going on. What’s definitely not working is the heating system. My corner of the floor is suffering from Frozen Office Syndrome. I know it’ll get settled eventually but It’s annoying being so cold. In the meantime – thank goodness for my heated throw.
The nice thing about our new location is the proximity to one of Portland’s many Food Cart pods. I normally take my lunch to work (because I’m cheap and a picky eater) but I have instituted Food Cart Fridays to try new things, So far the gyro, ramen soup and pad thai have all been excellent.
Hope you’re having a great weekend!!
