Writing day Saturday 10/1/2005

This fountain is in my friend Braveheart’s front yard. It provided a lovely aural background to a couple of hours of writing. The Elegant E and Gia were there, too. There’s something nourishing about writing where others are writing. A photo of Braveheart’s cat was a close runner up to this one.

Geraniums in waiting Friday 9/30/2005

These geraniums were, no doubt, excited about being transfered to the ground in the near future when I selected them from amongst their peers. Sadly, they still wait on the front porch. Hopefully gazing at me as I pass by on my way to work in the dark. (I bought these to add a splash of color outside the new front door.)

My beloved tea pot 9/29/2005

Yes, it’s beloved. It’s my tea pot. It makes a wonderful brew for me every work day. In this photo it’s communing with my desk lizard. I like it when my stuff gets along.

Window at work 9/28/2005

This is part of what I look at during the day at work. I took this early in the day, thinking that it would just be a fall back, that I would have grand adventures worth detailing by nightfall. Well, I did have some very good experiences, but none that I thought to document.

This flower is a cyclamen. They are very forgiving and continue to bloom for a long time if you keep them wet. The African violet was rescued from my boss’s office. It was half this size and brownish a month ago. Maybe if I feed it, it will flower again.

The Mess On My Desk 9/27/2005

How does this woman get anything done?

In my defense, everything I need is right at hand. Um, even my car keys in case of emergency earthquake evacuation. (Right, those could probably be moved.)

In a little while, I will squeeze a Chinese take-out container in between the script and the phone.

p.s. My office mate just asked if I noticed a weird flashing in the office. Um, yeah, that would be me taking photos of Desk.

Bob's Big Boy 9/26/2005

Treated myself to oatmeal and coffee and some writing time this morning before work. Cheers to all 24-hour restaurants!

By the time I came out, there were gorgeous clouds in the sky and I took a shot of that too.

Another day, another door 9/25/2005

Okay. So. “It’ll only take us two hours,” my husband said, with fabulous optimism, when we were talking about whether it was too late to start installing the new storm door on the back door of our house. We got started at 1:15 in the afternoon. We didn’t get back into the house until 7:15. We had to put new moulding around the door, etc. Just reading the directions probably took us two hours.

This photo was taken around 3:00 pm, nearly an hour past the two-hour ETA. It’s a good thing we love each other so much.
