Silver Liningness Sunday

Happy Sunday and Happy Pi Day! So excited, it feels like I missed an hour of sleep last night!

It's been another week of thankfulness things, so I must recapitulate.

My schedule is quite full these days with work and VoMo-ism. Run With Lumber action items are being checked off of my list, and I've enlisted a crack team of helpers to help get 'er done!

On the work side of things, I attended a very beneficial workshop this week. We have these gatherings about two or three times per year, and they're always worthwhile despite my getting stuck in a traffic clog on my way to the big city.

These things are practically my only occassions to actually meet my co-workers in person! And what a bunch of lovable eccentric geeks they (we) are!

On that note, I got a raise this week too - YAY!

Okay, enough about paid employment. Meego had the day off on Friday and it was nice to just have a lazy day together - like the good old days.

I'm also still finding time for my art play. Worked on figure drawing this week. Way back in my college days, I took a figure drawing class - the PG kind, not the nude model kind. Some say we must learn the nude model in order to understand anatomy better in order to depict clothed models, thus the prevalance of "life drawing" classes with nudies.

But I think my way-back-in-my-college-days professor did a good job of filling in the blanks. Plus, I would've been way too flustered back then, in my late teens, to draw a live naked person!

In movie notes, we watched District 9. I found it strangely interesting and thought provoking and good for general entertainment purposes. Nothing too deep.

Now, onto Pi Day! I'm sure I will be joined in the celebration and enjoyment of all things round!

I'm not so sure about this spring ahead time change. The kids are cranky but it's lighter out so they don't want to go to bed.

Congratulations on your raise! Well deserved I'm sure.

My coworkers are half the reason I enjoy my job so much. I can't imagine not getting to see them on a regular basis.

I think I'll have me some Pecan Pie in honor of Pie Day!

What? Pi Day? Oh. Never mind.

Happy Pi Day!
Congrats on the raise! Well deserved! You've earned it.

It is good to meet with some of your co-workers that you deal with on line. Occasionally I have seminars with people from other states or in Europe and we get to meet face-to-face. It is nice to put a face with the name you spend so much time conversing with. It makes the communications much easlier if you can visualize the body behind the keyboard.

District 9 was different. I thought it was good, but strange as well.

raise?! AWESOME!

I like the rapper guy, haha, or maybe he is some wanna-be rapper in a boy-band? ;)
