with no work.
Today is the first day I work from home. This will hopefully re-occur every other Friday. It is a trial because the traffic on Friday’s is beyond its usual crappiness and registers as full tilt garbage. Walt IM’d that it took him an hour and a half to get to work, he lives less than three miles away. He could have walked faster.
So I had lots of extra time this morning. Lori and I went for groceries and to stop to pick up some things for a couple of school experiments.
I then had time to make some clam chowder. I had frozen broth and clams from earlier in the year. We got home with enough time for me to get the soup started and could dash in and stir it a couple of times. It is quite yummy and has a bit of a kick to it because I used spicy panko to thicken the clams when I made them so the broth was quite spicy.
I also finished the blanket I had been working on at work all week. This one is probably going to Taylor’s friend who is expecting. But I am starting another so there will be several to pick from. See the extra ‘bit’ of yarn left. That’s what the other should have had that I spent weeks looking for before finishing and sending off as is.
So I am three hours into my first shift at home. I have five more hours. I have made soup, finished a blanket, started another and am clearly blogging. I like this working from home. I really do wish there was some actual work however it would make the hours move a little quicker. I can’t actually leave the desk for long just in case a client sends in something but there is time to maybe start the laundry here in a bit.
Oh and I’m barefoot, no heals, no suit!
