Bright eyed day

I've always had an amazing ability to pass time.

Last night, work ended early due to needed server repairs. Opman asked me to come in this morning to finish up the indexing I started last night. It's a job that normal gets burned on Tuesdays and Fridays.

I got up without benefit of alarm clock, and got to work shortly after 8:30am. Sleeping in would have felt nice, but I generally wake up by 6 or 7 these days, and then go back to sleep when I have the luxury.

The server repairs weren't completed. No mind, I'd brought the South Beach Diet book with me. First, I finished reading the book. Then, I sat down and turned the first 7 days of menus into a grocery list. Lots and lots of vegetables. A fair amount of dairy products. And bunches of meat.

Opman came in and admitted defeat around 9:30. He said it'd be after lunch before the network was back up, so I might as well go home. He and Ra will have to finish up the necessary indexing themselves this afternoon. He talked to me about doing prep at night occasionally, when there isn't enough indexing for full hours.

I stuck around long enough to finish up my grocery list, then headed home.

It'll be nice to get more hours. I've decided to put my knitting machine money toward an air cleaner for Flar's office, so he can smoke cigars there. Which means I'll be restarting my knitting machine savings and I still want to get it soon enough to make sweaters for each of the boys before fall hits full force.

Speaking of fall, today's weather is the kind for which you can sell tickets. Gotta plop Oliver in the player. There's bright sunshine, clear, crisp air, and the temperature was only 65 when I was out. Yummy, gorgeous weather. The only thing I like better is misty rainy steel grey days. :)

Now, I'm heading out to pick up school supplies for Tigger, including dress shoes and new sneakers. Then we'll pick up Knight on our way home, to spend the afternoon here.

The house is a mess, so we'll probably spend an exciting day cleaning house. :)

Tomorrow, Berry is bringing her boys over to play games. Sunday, I'm going to church with Berry in the morning.
