Journey Through A Day

Welcome to Spring to all... I hope that you are getting the sense, at the very least, that spring is right around the corner. There is a tree in the front yard of my house that is home to a group of very happy birds. They sing in the rain. They sing in the dark. And they even sing when there is a cat watching them.

I am not travelling much these days, though I suppose in a way, I do every day. I thought that I would take you on a walk in a day of my work life. Don't worry - I'll keep out the "work" in work.

Morning on the south side of the mountain. I see the sun rise on the other side of the mountain, as the light descends into the valley. Here was my view on the day spring arrived:

My office has a view, and new blinds though I am not sure you can see them here. They are techno blinds that will block out the heat of the summer sun. The verdict is still out on this one. As you can see, I have a very fine view of the backlane. Let me tell you, there is a lot that happens in that backlane.

I didn't take any pictures of my actual work because my work involves meetings with other people, and they are entirely confidential. My desk looks like any other, so no picture of that. My work involves a lot of talking and well... that doesn't seem to translate into photos very well.

This day I was doing follow up phone calls to people, and doing this after hours when they were home from work. I went for a walk to get a beverage. Here it is:

It is not coffee. It is a Dandy Dairy Latte.

And that is the end of my work day. I came home and got the parcel ready to go Manitoba for my sister's birthday. I did this in a Tasmanian Devil style, and it shows:

I got to Greyhound before the bus heading East, so there's a good chance it will be there by Saturday.

When I got home, I picked up the sock I started on the plane from Spokane to Phoenix. I didn't do much in Puerto Vallarta - knitting is impossible at the beach (if any one has any ideas, let me know), and didn't mix with the myriad of other things we did.

Here's my progress so far:

Good afternoon, my dear. That was a lovely reminder of what things are like in your neck of the woods. Looks like the snow is all gone, too. I like that idea as I am getting tired of the cold and snow.

All things considered, I'm surprised that you thought about knitting at all while in Puerto Vallarta. But it looks like pretty good progress on a sock to me.

Be well. I'm off to see my folks shortly. I would have left yesterday, but I am afrid I got more than a bit sick and spent the afternoon and most of last night sleeping.
