My morning walk in today was rather like being in a fairy tale.
The walk through the enchanted forest:
To the wizard's tower:
Though I don't actually walk anywhere near the tower to get to work. The clouds were just cool.
It has, once again, been eleventy billion years since I posted. I think the problem is that I feel like I should post tons about what's going on then I get overwhelmed at the time it will take and never post at all.
So things that have been going on:
Just finished the winter break. It was mostly restful at least until Vegas anyway, which is a city designed to be the opposite of restful.
I did have a small christmas eve get together where I did not make small food choices. I made a kale, cranberry and sweet potato salad (surprisingly tasty though I think I'd have like to have broke up the kale with another green. I know it's trendy but I get tired of it), coq au vin, homemade pasta (only because I got the mixer attachements to make it from a lovely friend for Christmas and wanted to try them out), french onion soup and a lemon meringue pie.
I had a better time this year in Vegas than last year for New Years though there was one unfortunate fight with a friend about rooms that was frustrating but could have been worked out. All ended well though.
I did end up with a bit of a stomach flu on the day I was leaving, however, and having a stomach issue and needing to deal with a plane is not a fun place to be in. It was uneventful though and I managed to bum a ride from the same friend I had a fight with home so i didn't have to do the hour and change commute I would have had to do on my way home if I'd done it as originally planned. Promptly slept for fourteen hours.
I could have done without the last day before going back to work to be sick though it was admittedly a fairly mild version of stomach flu. Mostly consisted of being blargh and not even wanting to contemplate eating rather than reenactments of the pea soup exorcist scene, which is what it was the last time I had it.
Still wasn't feeling too hot yesterday but made it the whole day. Today, not too bad but still doing JUST fine on one granola bar and two jolly ranchers. Though I may just say to hell with it and get nachoes on the way home.
Other than that, FC is next week which means it's even closer than usual to the winter closure. Should be fun.
More importantly I'm going to be doing a speaking engagement with my boss at a conference in April. The conference will be in Hawaii. So yay? (aka yay for Hawaii, ? for why did I suggest doing this for the speaking thing)
Anyway, I'll try to be better about posting but I always say that, don't I?
