Yesterday we had a big Thanksgiving lunch at work. Dessert is sometimes the best (and prettiest) part of the meal. One meal down, three to go. I’d better break out the stretchy pants.
This morning when I arrived at the office, my neighbor’s office, my absolute favorite co-worker’s office, was empty. This economy is affecting everyone, including the non-profit sector. It’s unfortunate when people who are doing everything they can to fight cancer are hit hard because fundraising is down, and they have to be let go. My friend is the most positive, faithful coworker anyone could ask for. She will be missed by everyone in the office – especially me. I think I was more sad to lose her than she was to lose her job, because she has faith that everything will work out for the best. And I believe that too. She’ll go on to do amazing things, and some day I’ll be asking for her autograph!
Yesterday I posted a photo of a baby bird, today it’s a baby carrot. This little guy was about a tenth the size of a typical baby carrot. Isn’t it cute? (I know…you’re thinking I’m a little weird. But I am on Day 208. Some days there just isn’t a whole lot going on.)
Yesterday I got together with a couple of friends at ingredient for lunch. $5 pizzas – can’t beat that! (Although I had my fair share of pizza in Italy so I got a salad this time.)
This photo blog is having a self-portrait challenge this week, and yesterday’s challenge was to utilize props. This is my typical, daily lunch. I’m excited to say that in a week I’ll be experiencing a totally different kind of lunch!
Yesterday I ate lunch with some coworkers at a local hole-in-the-wall restaurant called The Brick in downtown Kansas City. It had the tastiest looking menu I’ve seen in a long time, and their burgers, sweet potatoes fries, and veggies with hummus were all amazing! I can’t wait to go back some time during Happy Hour. It just goes to show that appearance isn’t everything.
