A photo an hour

Here is my photo an hour post for Friday, July 27th.

7:30 a.m.  I’m ready to leave for work, but have to say good morning to my greenhouse and garden before I go.  I say hi every morning, when I get home and before I go to bed.  This morning there is a zucchini flower waiting for fertilization.


8:30 a.m. Arriving at work.  I just got an underground parking space at the law courts – spaces are allotted twice a year by draw, but I’m luckier at blog giveaways than I am in the parking draw, so this is a real treat.  However, my access code isn’t working, so the first order of business is to go over and speak to the security guard about getting it fixed.


9:30 a.m. Back at work – I work in a building across the street from the one above.  I spend a lot of my day on the computer.  Have to check e-mails and file them.  When you work for government everything has to be saved.


10:30 a.m. Time for a break and to move my car over to the garage now that my access is fixed.  This day can’t decide if it is going to be sunny or rainy.


11:30 a.m.  Still working at the computer, but I’ll give you a different view of my office.  This is my window; it’s great to have a view.  That building you see is a restaurant and wonderful smells waft up from it all morning as they prepare for the lunch crowd.  On the other side of it is a park where there is live music every weekday lunch hour during the summer.  It usually starts around 11:30 and goes to 1:30 and I can listen while I’m smelling the good smells.


12:30 p.m.  It’s still sunny so I’m eating my lunch by the river.  Someone is in there swimming – it must be a warm day!


1:30 p.m.  Here’s another view in my office.  I’m in my 19th year working with the department of Justice and although I’ve had seven office moves in that time, I continue to keep my little collection of familiar things that make my office mine.


2:30 p.m. Well the rain finally arrived…


3:30 p.m. Going down the hall to speak to someone.  We have these locked doors throughout our building.  After all this is where senior Justice officials work; they need their security.  I’m being facetious – I think it’s ridiculous.


4:30 p.m. Ahhh… work is done and I’m off now for nine days!


5:30 p.m. Grocery shopping is done and I’m waiting at my friend’s house for her to arrive.  We’re supposed to be going for a walk, but she is notoriously late coming home from work and I’m so tired I don’t think I can wait.


6:30 p.m. On the road for home; my friend didn’t arrive and I had to leave.  Here is my favourite mountain, welcoming me back to my little town.


7:30 p.m. I’ve put away the groceries and been to the library to find some books for the next week.   Next order of business is some attention to the garden.  The flowers want some water.


8:30 p.m.  There is a Delissio pizza in the oven.  DH isn’t home yet but I’m hungry.  Talking to DD # 3 on the phone while the pizza cooks.


9:30 p.m. Taking the dog for a walk.  But where is the dog?  Well I lost him.  He is a most loyal dog and although he explores in the bush he always re-joins me after a few minutes.  But tonight he disappeared.  He was at home when I got there…


10:30 p.m.  Checking e-mails and sending some replies, then I’m off to bed. 


Hope you enjoyed travelling through my day with me.  Can you see why I never have any time to sew? Smile
