Hurrah for a weekend!

     Work Friday was definitely entertaining. Not only did we get to celebrate my coworker Kathy's 10 anniversary today, but the event was marked by a FileNet crash and network issues on top of that. So the paper scanning folk could hang around and chat without any pressure, because they can't do any work at ALL without FileNet. I could hardly do any work either, since I'd just reached the point in my reports where I required it. Made for a very lazy and relaxed Friday morning. (Can't forget the wonderful pastries, either!)

     I'm grateful for my progress on monthly reports as I worked toward quarterly reports this week. Feeling much less stressed about the March 12 deadline now after Friday than I was before diving in last Tuesday.

     I'm delighted I made it all the way to Friday afternoon before any flooding kicked in. Came home to find the closet full and a narrow lane of water down the north side of my room--but less than the last time that happened, AND the water slowed down the moment the sun got low. So no bailing tonight, yippee!

     Started on my illustration for 'Of Insults and Arguments' last evening, and very happy with how quickly it's coming along. Always a pleasant surprise when Vue/Poser cooperate for a change! ;)

Wow, there's a hyarmi there! And one blowing bubbles, how cute!

Sorry, got a bit distracted there.

You must have been glad to have such a quiet day at work, particularly once you came home and found the flooding. Spring seems to bring a fair few problems with it, even if the flowers are nice.

Thanks! That was the 'fuzzy fun' I mentioned in my last post. (Forgetting that people can't see it from a 'Friends' view.)

It was an entertaining workday, but I'm glad things were running in the afternoon so I could make good number-crunching progress.

Spring flowers don't really come to Minnesota until May, some in late April. I like Tolkien's elvish concept of six seasons, because 'thaw' and 'spring' are quite distinct around here.

How interesting. Obviously, we don't really get a thaw in these parts because it doesn't snow. Instead we tend to skip straight to the flowers!

Sacramento is like that too, I believe. Much more blooming time. What I dislike about my home is that it can get nearly summer-hot way too fast and the lilacs, tulips, and crabapple blossoms don't last nearly as long as they might if it were more moderate.
