Today was a good day with good things in it.
Thing the first: I wasn’t able to leave work early enough to go for a run before dinner, but I did get out of the office to enjoy the weather a little bit. I had an appointment in the late morning (quick trim), so I headed out (running late) and rushed over. Got there just in time. It was fast, so I felt like I could take some time to myself before going back to the office. I walked over to Starbucks, picked up an iced chai latte, and sat on a bench with my book for about 15 minutes. It was SUCH a nice day. All the trees are still in bloom, I FINALLY saw lots of daffodils, the sky was blue and clear, and the air was warm-ish. I would have stayed a little longer, but a landscaping company showed up and started making a TON of noise. It got a lot less peaceful, so I headed back to work. Just as well, I guess.
Thing the second: My officemate has decided she’s getting too worked up over every little thing, so she’s going to let all those annoyances roll off. I’m supposed to help her remember that. It’ll help me remember it, too. Now we’re listening to soothing sounds on YouTube. All we need is a palm tree. (“I just wanna see some paaaalm trees.“)
Thing the third: my friend (and coworker) Stephanie asked me to check on something that hasn’t been working lately, and when we found that it IS working now, she sent this back to me in her emailed reply:
I’m sure it’s not new, but it was exactly what I needed to see, and now I laugh every time I look at it. (Did I high-five my screen? Yes. Yes, I did. And I might do it again right now.)
Update (8:08pm): I just found out today was National High Five Day. So many things are clearer now. Except why, exactly, we have a National High Five Day. Happy Random Holiday Day!
