Not much to say today, but I do have an addition to the list of things I love about my job. The weather for the last week has been unseasonably warm; near to 70 degrees on Wednesday. But late yesterday a cold front came through and it's been raining ice and snowing all day today. The view outside the copy room window at the office was very wintery: I often stand at this window and watch for a Great Blue Heron that visits our *pond* - usually there's a few Canada Geese and some Mallards. Last summer we had a bunch of baby snapping turtles dig their way out of the banks of the pond and under the chain link fence that surrounds it. I was talking about the weather, wasn't I? See how easily I get sidetracked by birds! Anyway... so it was very cold out today. Winter on the outside.
But inside it was a balmy 81.5 degrees! Yesterday it got up to 84. A summer's day to go with my coworker's tropical postcards there in the background. It's so nice to be dressed for the winter weather and have to sit at your desk and sweat day after day! I love it!
The summertime is even better because I can go to the office and freeze my ass off! I have this pretty blue serape from Mexico that I wrap myself in for the summer months because it's usally about 50 degrees.
I'm trying to be funny, but I sense that I'm not fooling anyone here. So I'll end this with an invitation to any of you that are suffering through the last few months of winter in the frozen north to come and visit me at work someday. Whatever the weather, you can count on the opposite once you step inside. I'll be the one alternately fuming or freezing in the back corner.
