こんばんは！ Hello! How’s it going?
I had a super-busy day starting early… 6:30am I was working! Why? Well, I knew I was going to be in and out of the office because the kids’ school schedules are shifted due to the end of the school year and I have to be a chauffeur for Bay while Mariko is working at X-Games. So I thought I would get some work out of the way early. Plus I had three meetings today, one I took from home, and two were in the office. Besides the meetings, we have a few large projects with deadlines that can’t be missed. However, there was one task that sprung up unexpectedly at the end of the day, and that added about 4 hours to my workday. So I ended up putting in over 11 hours! I think that may be a new record for me. 😱
But, it’s stuff that really needed to be done, and I’ll probably take a half-day off at some point (if my workload ever allows it). 😛
Like I mentioned, Mariko is working this week down at the Circuit of the Americas for the X-Games. She’s helping out with translation duties for two Japanese 🇯🇵 skateboarders who are competing. It looks like a lot of fun (Mariko sends me photos of the venue) and I wish I could check it out too! Here’s one of the photos from a practice session. Looks so awesome!
Today’s photo is of our cat, Anko. She’s sleeping, believe it or not! Cat’s are so weird… I don’t think it’s a good photo (I hate the carpet!) but I just had to capture her twisted body.
Oh, this month, I am trying to take only black & white photos. But I already failed on the first day, when I took those cloud photos. 😅 Oh well. No biggie! More about my month-long black & white project later… as you can imagine, I am wiped out. 😴
I hope you had a nice Thursday!
