I'm really proud of myself for doing this, because this time yesterday I didn't even know how to use my new digital camera. But I managed to take the pictures, upload them and post them, all in 1 day. That may not impress most people under 30, but it was big day for me.
So - welcome to my boring day.
7:50 a.m. - Today is trash day. Here is a lovely shot of my Love and Wealth areas (i.e. my one car garage and trash can.)
8:10 a.m. – Once I get signed on and settled in, I try to read my emails. Among my big important messages of the morning – my daily horoscope. Here was today's:
A good day unfolds before you, expanding as far as your eye can see. Your day is full of tasks you can easily complete and coworkers who charm you. Envision moving up the ladder for even better views.
9:30 a.m. – This is my office mate MB (not to be confused with MCB). He was a little hesitant about having me take his picture for my blog. But once I explained the 12 of 12, and how my daily point of view of him is usually the back of his head anyway, he sort of got in to it. So, much like those reality shows on MTV, this shot was staged/recreated for the camera.
12:35 p.m. – Lunch with my some of my team at the new Quiznos. I had the Prime Rib & Peppercorn. MB ordered the Black Angus, but asked for the Black Agnes by mistake. It did not go unnoticed, or unridiculed.
12:55 p.m. – Pulling out of the parking lot of the restaurant, I noticed the Boyd Tire Man statue. He has been in this location for as long as I can recall. I think that he got a new paint job, cause he looked very shiny and new.
12:57 p.m. – Since we pass my neighborhood on the way back from lunch, I always like to drive by and grab my mail so that I don’t have to go out and get it when I get home in the evening. I think that when I took a picture of my open mailbox, my coworkers CG and HF were finally convinced that I was a lunatic.
4:11 p.m. – I always need a little caffeine boost near the end of the day, so I usually take a couple of minutes to run up to the 5th floor breakroom for some fresh ice and a Diet Coke. This breakroom is on the top floor of our building and has the best view of Delta headquarters and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Even though I’ve lived in the shadow of this airport my entire life, I am still amazed every time I see an airplane take off – especially the larger aircraft like a 777 or 747.
The hours between 5:30 and 6:30 pm are photo-free. I had water therapy on my knee at the pool this evening, but I wasn’t about to take my new camera into the gym. Also, there will be no photographic evidence of me in a swim suit.
10:15 p.m. - Laundry all folded and put away, and now I can relax for a little while. This is my new heating pad for my knee. My old one melted in the microwave last week (I used the Hell out of it the last 8 weeks since the surgery). Of course, they had to go and "improve" the one I had, and the new version I purchased isn't as good. Plus, it smells like tomato soup when it is hot.
11:27 p.m. - Looking over my nephew's Amazon wishlist to see if I've got him covered for the holiday. Still having a hard time with my niece though. She is about to turn 13, so that should explain it pretty well. I like this picture because in one fell swoop I managed to give a photo shout out to several friends and family via the photo board on my desk. See if you can find yourself.
BONUS PIC: The theme for the month is the word "Believe." That sort of made me think of church, especially this time of year. This particular church is the Christ Church in the city of Hapeville. I passed it around 1:00 p.m., on the way back from lunch. I believe that I'm gonna get married in that church one day. So I guess that the word ties in several ways.
So there you have it. My boring day.
