So my desk area is actually part of the lobby of our office. The joke for years has been that I wanted an office with a door...well..over the weekend the contractor came in and put up walls around my space, and there will even be a door...I am sitting here watching the guy sand the walls, oh ... and watching the dust land everywhere..
I get to enjoy the mess...then the office becomes someone else's and I get moved to a smaller space.
Ah well...now that the walls are up, I have decided I would have being in here..but don't tell anyone...their guilt trip is funny.

So after suffering some pretty steady intense pain in my left foot (not to be confused with the pain in the right ankle from the break in 2008), I finally went to see if we could do something...holy bone spurs, Batman! No wonder it hurts... someday the doc will have to go in and fix that...but I can wait..yup..yup...I can wait...

The DIA (Detroit Institute of Arts) has a program called Inside Out where they have reproductions of some of the art in their facility posted out and about at different locations. My hometown has 5 or 6 pieces..this one hangs on the outside wall of the library. I will have to look up the others in town and go check them out. I think this is a great idea, don't you?

Was at a wedding reception Saturday night and sat under this chandelier. The crystals were beautiful...my date and I spent some time wondering if anyone would notice if we stacked tables and chairs so we could snag a few....decided they probably would so I took a picture instead...

I found this recipe for Banh Mi and it looked like it might be tasty...so today is the day. While the meat is marinating, I will head out and run some errands and by the time I get back it should be ready...I'll let you know how it goes....fish sauce, hoisin, sriracha, sugar, honey, garlic, green onions...who'd a thunk it...me, the original picky eater using those ingredients....not me....

I got my first tattoo a month after I finished treatment for breast cancer. Something I had secretly wanted to do most of my life...It was the first item on my life list. I got 2 more when I had my 5 year anniversary.
Ten years ago this week, I finished up my treatment and tonight I got my 10 year ink. The phoenix is a symbol for rebirth, so I thought it fitting to be the subject for this milestone. I am, after all, a somewhat different person today than I was back when this journey began.
Yeh...yeh...yeh....I know...I have to live with for the rest of my life....but hey....I've already lived a good portion of the rest of my life...

...of the girl in the shades....visited the opthamologist earlier in the week and got my eyes dilated. Didn't have my shades with me so they gave me these handy dandy slide-behind-your-glasses shades. It was really hard trying to keep my head down and still drive myself back to work. No retinal detachment, tho, so it's all good.

Courtesy....so I see these vans on the freeway quite a bit...sometimes just travellin' along, sometimes pulled over behind some vehicle....so I am wondering....are they looking for courteous drivers to reward them? Or maybe they are looking for rude drivers to admonish. Nope, I don't think they are looking for rude drivers to admonish...they would never be able to keep up. Although it does say "frequent stops"

I have noticed signs of nest building the last few days...this morning was the first time Danica Duck was present. This is her 3rd year nesting between the garage aprons at the condos...I adjusted the lighting on this picture so you could see her...in reality, she blends in perfectly with the mulch...Hopefully this year will go as well as the last two and she will hatch the kids and move on out...

No....not the NCAA...but rather the fully blossomed daffodils that hang out under my window at the office. I actually took this last week(they are still looking good). Mid March and the flowers are abloom. It is the weather that is madness .. but a madness I love.
