And here's a view from one of the balconies:
It's Friday, and although it's a bit 'drizzly' out it's not cold at all, and I'm in a very good mood. :-)
Here I sit, in my flannel shirt and jeans ready to start the day. I started reading a really good book on the train this morning. It's called 'the curious incident of the dog in the night-time' written by Mark Haddon. One of my co-workers suggested it to me a while ago, and after MANY failed attempts at locating it in the liberry (don't you love that?), it was finally in when I went over there yesterday. One of the times I looked for it before, I came across another book by the same author called 'A Spot of Bother' which I just finished last night. It was pretty good. I like his writing style a lot and it was a fun and funny novel. As I was reading it, I kept thinking that it would make a very funny movie. Something along the lines of 'Meet the Parents' or 'Sixteen Candles'. You know the type...a 'crazy' family trying to plan a wedding and all sorts of wacky things happen to everyone....fun.
Anywhoo....the book I'm reading now is a 'murder mystery' but the murder victim is a poodle, and the entire story is being told from the point of view of a 15 year old autistic boy who had decided to solve the crime. He's the one who discovered the dead dog, and at the suggestion of one of his teachers, is writing a novel about the whole experience. So far (I'm only on page 78) it's VERY good. I'll keep you posted.
My cold is getting better (although I'm a tad headache-y this morning) so I'm hoping that the worst of my cold is over with. It seems that a lot of people at work are going through the same thing. At certain times of the day you'd think that I was sitting in the TB ward...coughing and hacking as far as the ear can hear. Lovely.
Well peeps (I love Peeps) it's time for me to grab a cup of coffee and get to work...I have a fairly laid-back weekend coming up. Jim and I are going to finish up the cellar cleaning tomorrow (we got half of it done last night, and it looks wicked pissa so fah) and then tomorrow night I'm heading to a benefit dinner/dancing/silent auction event that a friend of mine is organizing for her nephew. THAT should be fun...and I'll be sure to bring my camera!!! I have no idea what we're doing on Sunday - but I'm sure it'll be fun and exciting. :-)
Have a GREAT weekend and don't do anything I wouldn't do...such as:
