Hurrah for three-day weekends! Hurrah!

     My first gratitude actually has to do with work. I have to cover film developing when Shelley is off, and since she's worked for the company for so long, boy does she have a LOT of vacation time to spend. So I've been doing a bit of film processing over the last month or so. What I am glad for is that I am finally getting used to the new location. After spending 6-7 years doing part of the routine in the dark in the old building, it was very hard for my brain to adjust to doing things in the dark in a new room. I am glad I am finally getting a 'feel' for where everything is.

     I'm grateful for a decent night of sleep that lasted almost to 6:30, thanks to the sleeping pill.

     Also glad for a cool morning--it gave me something that resembled energy, so I could sweep the sidewalk before it got sunny over there, and clear out/throw out a bunch of aquarium stuff.

     My mom is spending a whole day getting herself from California to New York for a wedding this weekend...so it was a treat getting a phone call from her this morning as she was waiting for her first of three flights. She printed out my newest book 4 chapters so she'll have them as a diversion on her flights. =)

     Last but not least, wonderful to have my terrarium looking so lush!

I must agree, the terrarium is looking spectacular!

I remember the old days when Dad used to process film at his work. Having a feel for everthing would be so important because there's no other way to find everything!

Glad to hear that it is all going well. Hopefully the cooler weather will stick around for a little while.

Thanks! It was fun looking at my photo from when I planted it, and seeing how much has changed.

Oh yes! I'm so silly now I cross my arms when I use the auto-winder since it was on the left side in the old place, I have to do it with my left hand! ;P

Friday was nice. Saturday was a scorcher and today looks to be even worse. I think I'll spend the afternoon emulating a slug. ;)
