Well, work has been trying to stomp me flat this week (and sickness decimating Greg's side of things now) so I'm grateful for what I've enjoyed and accomplished despite that:
Monday morning and Tuesday morning both brought spectacular sunrises--and I grabbed my camera for Tuesday. The shots are a little blurry--a tripod would have done the trick, but I was trying to scramble for the bus stop. Practically the entire sky was streaked with pink and blue and wonderfully exotic-hued lighting--what a treat!
shot 1: looking east
shot 2: looking north-east
shot 3: looking north along the road I walk on to the bus stop.
Pleased that I got my avarii essay editing done and it all uploaded to my Triune page with its illustrations. (And enjoying the wallpaper and puzzle I made from one of the illustrations.)
Happy that I got started on the gift dialogue for ME that I babbled about on my main LJ back in August. The writing bug just had to bite at 11 am at work Tuesday, but writing the first sentence down and e-mailing it home worked!
Touched by Pantha's sweetness in telling me about her first blood donation and how I was an inspiration. =D
And happy to have everything in place to 'open' my Triune place at last, after all the legwork I've done in there since July.
Pleased that tomorrow is Thursday already!

I was just heading home from the prego center a few minutes ago and thinking the same thing -- Tomorrow is Thursday! Yay!
I love all this writing inspiration you're getting! Definitely good to hear! I'm currently confused by the Triune reference, but that's probably just my brain, which is having difficulty processing at the moment...for some reason...
Anyway, do you have to work next week? What are you plans for Thanksgiving?
*grins* And now TODAY is Thursday, which means tomorrow is Friday!
Ah, the Triune community is the place I set up for the next set of books I'll be writing after I finish the five Geren books (whatever decade that is). I've got my illustrated avarii essay hosted there, and maps, and small stuff so far, but most of it will only be accessible to people with LJ accounts that are members (so I don't lose my chances at publishing down the road). It's linked from my main LJ if you want to check out the parts that aren't restricted.
Of course I have to work next week! =P Including the Friday after Thanksgiving, though I'll certainly be wearing jeans and Jodi might bring in hot dogs and the few of us there will have a laid-back party atmosphere--that day's the most wanted one on the calendar, so I never ask for it unless I'm going somewhere.
Enjoy your visit to family, whenever you head out! *hugs back*

Sunrise photos are so pretty. Glad you got some shots of them.
Sounds like a rough week at work. Hope things get better soon.
Good to hear about your Triune page. Looking forward to seeing it completed.
May the writing bug continue to strike you often. It is the good kind of bug. SD
I'm glad too! I've got my camera in my bag now, but I doubt there'll be any more pretty ones this week. I took a couple pictures of my new desk--want to see them?
Me too! Poor Eva was sick Monday and got sent home Tuesday, she was in such awful shape, so she's off all week.
Sorry, it won't be 'completed' until the next decade at the earliest...but I am happy to have it officially 'started;' now I want to write some monologues or snippets about the characters.
That is most definitely is! =D
Those photos are amazing! I would have expected it of a sunset, but I don't think I've ever seen a sunrise quite like that.
Huzzah for writing and double huzzah for being an inspiration (for what it's worth, you inspire me too). I hope it will make up for being stomped flat (and if it doesn't stop stomping soon, send it on to me and I shall have a "talk" with it).
Hope all is well.
I've seen very few sunrises that set the whole heavens ablaze, but I have seen very many gorgeous sunrises (over the years). Perhaps the prevailing winds and dryness in your area make it rarer?
I've a feeling work will be stomping on my department for the rest of the year; that's just what goes with this part of the calendar. I'm glad my people are no so swamped as Greg's or I'd be worried about burn-out for them. If our business is any indication, the company is doing quite well...which translates into a pleasant lump of cash come March. =D
*hugs back* Thanks!
I certainly did! Not much up besides a sleep-inducing avarii essay, though (and a death threat from the Rooster, if you can find it ;).
Thanks! It was really an astounding morning; pity I was in such a rush to get to the bus stop on time I couldn't gawk as much as I wanted.
No hurry at all! It's not going anywhere...the 'worst' that will happen is that I'll do more editing or add more illustrations. ;)
(*hugs* Thanks for letting me know! *bangs head on wall* I'm working on a coworker's pc this morning, which made it perfect for checking out access settings--but I didn't even think of comment settings! They don't make it easy to find and change that, either, but I think it's the way it should be, now...)
