I am always happy when Friday arrives and the work week ends! It doesn't matter that I had taken vacation time off from work on Monday and Tuesday of this week; it still felt like a long work week! Probably because I've been busy with a project and there were one or two hiccups that had to be taken care of before I could say that the project was completed.
Today, I went to the office in the morning and had a very busy and productive day. As soon as I went in, one of the clerical staff informed me that there were strawberry doughnuts for breakfast - they are glazed doughnuts with a filling of fresh strawberries. I took half of one, which was plenty for me. I should have taken a picture, but I forgot!
During my afternoon break, I walked to the nearby post office to buy a stamp and mail a payment. They were just closing up when I went in, but the cashier sold me my stamp, anyway, which was very nice of her. I used to carry a book of stamps tucked into the pocket of my checkbook cover, but I had taken it out and kept it on my desk at home during the time I was working from home. I need to put it back in the checkbook so I have it handy every time I write a check to pay a bill. Yes, I am one of the holdouts who pays bills by check and mails them; it's my way of supporting the postal service!
Today, I asked my gardener friend to prune the bottle brush tree, especially the branches at the top which got singed from the neighbor's garage fire. I asked him to set aside 3 or 4 of the branches for me as I have a project in mind. He brought me two amaryllis bulbs from his garden to plant in mine!
I'm afraid I wasn't very productive once I got home in the evening. One of my friends phoned and I spoke with her for a bit. Another friend emailed and I replied to her email. I put away the dried laundry from yesterday and I video chatted with my daughter.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A sunny, warm day
- Strawberry filled doughnuts
- Getting my project completed at work
- Helpful co-workers
- The amaryllis bulbs my gardener friend gave me
