Work is crazy busy. I am used to this pace when we are in peak….but peak is a month away. So it just seems ridiculous they are closing offices and laying people off but there you have it.
I personally think I am good until May of next year. Based on the peak schedule, the work load and the projected rollout of new services. (Maybe even beyond May but I am planning other adventures at this time.)
Adding to the crazy are people cramming in vacations in the “non peak” periods as they are not allowed during peak. So Monday I had to be in early as two people were on vacation. Now two others are on vacation for today through the next two weeks so I am working late. I have the late second shift that turns to third and that is often a shift that has to work over.
But because I am working late I had some extra time today before coming to work. I was able to fit in a walk before my boot camp class and then go pick up some starts for my fall garden.
What I have figured out and it only took a couple years, is that I can have a Fall, Winter and Spring gardens but Summer is just too hot in my backyard for a garden. There just isn’t any shade at all on the plot. Its still iffy right now as we had triple digits a couple days this week but at least its cooler this weekend and down to the mid 70’s at night.
I had to move my car early because of the street sweeper, I drove to the boot camp and took a walk around there before class. Here are some pictures of while not quite my neighborhood, pretty darn close.
