roses on my window sill at work. i bought 2 dozen of these (latin beauty) at sam's on sunday and i've barely seen them. yesterday i met with folks from 10:00 a.m. until 7:30 last night and started all over today from 9:30 until 5:00 today. great meetings, productive and all that jazz.
i'm exhausted. tonight for dinner i stirred up some goat cheese spread and had a couple of pitas. it was all i could do for the night. tomorrow i will go through the lists of stuff to do and breathe. hopefully i will have time for lunch and potty breaks for the first time in two days. challenging - yes, frustrating - yes, but on the other hand it's exciting too.
i tried catching up tonight with some of you - love the happiness that i read today - there was a lot of it spread around. there are so sad times too and i'm thinking of those folks and hope they can feel the warmth. mandy had me thinking a lot about saying 'yes' and about old friends. sometimes by virtue of being alone, my time seems to be subject to other people's lives...sometimes that matters and sometimes it doesn't. it's a lot of something to think about.
and...i lost my lens cap somehow today. and it was my spare. guess i'll be going to the camera store tomorrow - that's always dangerous. *smile*
Gorgeous photo Char... sounds like you're very busy at the moment - but it's wonderful being busy. When you stop, there's too much time to dwell on things.ReplyDelete
Beautiful roses and photo. Glad to hear you are handling the work load with such grace.ReplyDelete
Glad to know I am not the only one losing my lens cap...you'll find it (right after you buy a new one). Glad to hear all is well. Love those roses!ReplyDelete
What lovely roses!ReplyDelete
love the photo, such pretty flowers...ReplyDelete
and enjoy the trip to the camera store...
My Mum wanted to buy me two dozen roses but I told her to send me some camera stuff instead! hee hee.ReplyDelete
I have a thingy to stick on my lens cap but just can't find the time to stick it. :)
the roses are beautiful. i hope you find some time to stop and enjoy them...ReplyDelete
You seem to be immersed in a "good" busy, which is always nice. Enjoy the camera store!ReplyDelete
the yellow and green/blue of the jar are a sweet gift to see..thanks char for sharing them with us!ReplyDelete
camera store ...stay strong..or NOT!!
oh those camera stores....so dangerous and I thought that word only applied to dark alley ways....like you see in the movies....but noooo, someday, it will be CSI discovering that just the excitement of buying something new in the camera shop is what killed me.....ReplyDelete
love the roses !
beautiful roses. i love productive meetings - but hate the ones when its just talk and going round and round without being able to find a solution.ReplyDelete
how pretty. Hate losing lens caps.ReplyDelete
Love your bright and cheery photo of roses! Busy is good but enough is enough!ReplyDelete
These roses are so beautiful Char! I love yellow roses and it's such a good idea to have them in your office...all it takes is a glance, just a moment, of setting our eyes on beauty to bring us back to center.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing...and I love the old jars as vases too.
love, Love, LOVE the image today -- so beautiful! Hope you get to slow down a little today. Have fun at the camera shop! :)ReplyDelete
sorry for all the long hours you're having to put in but glad it's exciting for you at least. i have been working late hours too and so behind on catching up with folks here.ReplyDelete
it's always nice to buy yourself flowers. i need some cheer in my office as well.
The roses are a breath of fresh air on a cold wintry day with remnants of ice and snow. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Roses at work...such a wonderful way to make your day better even if you only get to glance at them between meetings...Thank-you for sharing them with us and I bet your coworkers thank you too...ReplyDelete
I recently bought my first DSLR that has a lens cover and immediately wondered how long it would be before I lose it:) So far so good...
I always stick the lens cap in my jeans pocket as soon as I remove it. Haven't lost one yet!ReplyDelete
Beautiful roses, Char! I hope you have a restful weekend coming up.
I hate it that you bought those beautiful roses and haven't been able to sit at your desk and enjoy them. Maybe tomorrow. I enjoyed my valentines tulips for as long as they lasted. I need to be like you and buy flowers for myself. They brighten the day so much.ReplyDelete
Lost lens cap means more editing. Hmmm...an idea for my post tomorrow. Thank you for the words and I think your dinner sounds divine.ReplyDelete
Love that you're busy. And hey, now you can afford to go to the camera shop. A little bit anyway!ReplyDelete
I'm having trouble getting around to everyone I want to read. It's quite distressing.
Those roses make me happy. That jar makes me happier. Combined? I know you're my kind of girl.ReplyDelete
I've been thinking a lot about that tiny, yet powerful word *yes* too....and I realised that it isn't just about saying yes to everything, but only to the things that truly bring me joy. I love the freedom in having the choice. :)ReplyDelete
