Two and a Half

As I remain challenged to stitch together much in the way of coherence please indulge a thimble full of random thoughts:  

1. The work (of more import, commute) week is shortened by two and a half days.To that I scream a resounding YaY!!  Well, the commutes will still be three full days as I must return even after the half day of work. But, still . . yay.

2. You shall be pleased to read that after much hand wringing and hair pulling, I have finally decided my contribution to the eve breakfast potluck: deviled eggs.

3. A joyous noise moment: the company holiday party won't happen until the ninth of January. It shall be a casual, family affair. In a bowling alley. To that I scream a resounding YaY!!!

4. The pooch (don't worry, she has since had her face done, eyes no longer hiding behind all that fur) and the catdog, Buttah continue to  navigate a, "I'm the favorite" course.  Neither need not worry. Plenty of love for them both (as well as for the more aloof, Pete.)

5. A condolence card arrived the other day which confounded
and astounded in equal measure. Quite moved by the outpouring of kindness expressed therein.

6. Birds are a common theme in greeting cards. Birds are a common holiday theme. My comfort threshold with birds is low. Not so low that I'm overly quacked out by images alone. But should I come face to face with a gaggle of geese, a covey of partridges,  a murder of crows, and so on . . way quacked out. Still, I shall be looking for every and all opportunities to shrink the bird themed greeting card collection currently in my possession.    


  1. Is that the same dog??? The post picture and the one on the blog sidebar???

    Sounds like things are looking up in your work-a-day world. Which is always a good thing.

    Wishing you a happy (birdless) holiday and a very joy filled new year.

    1. That IS the same dog. The sidebar photo was taken after a spa day, i.e professional grooming. We clip but don't blow dry her.

      I like my work, the company, and people I work with. I am beginning to feel more at home, so to speak.

      Thank you for the well wishes. I pass the same on to you and the family.

  2. I love this post. I love seeing the smoochies and I love the updateyness and I love that things are working out with your commute.

    Once again, I apologize for my birdiness. I will not send you cards with birds, not even penguins.

    1. The commutes are still a mess, but this shortened week should be better since school is out. ;-)

      Penguins are okay. Seriously, ♥ penguins.

  3. The commute this morning was a breeze! The roads were empty! I hope it's the same going home.

    I love the thimbleful of newsy content. Thank you!

    Enjoy the holidays, D, with or without a murder of crows.

    1. Yeah coming in it.was quiet m i don't loke it when buses creep and crawl from one stop to the next but that of lighter load.

      You are welcome. And thank you

      I shall. You do the same.

  4. Congratulations on the shortened work week AND the belated, casual party.
