Not just a one day event, I'm blogging every day about what I'm thankful for

Thanksgiving Project – Hard Boiled Eggs

What? How can I be happy for a hard boiled egg, you ask? Let me explain.

So, I’ve had a busy day (early employee meetings all the way through evening employee meetings – with a committee meeting sandwiched in the middle). I provided lunch for the committee meeting (pulled pork, in case you are interested). Well, I misjudged the amount of pulled pork so I didn’t eat (nor did my committee chair).

Anyway, I had boiled some eggs on Sunday night and brought a couple to work. Good thing too. I still was able to have lunch (a hard boiled egg and a small bag of chips). Not the best lunch, but enough to fill me up. No idea what dinner will be when I get home around 7:30 tonight. But it won’t be another egg 😉

Plus another thing to be thankful for today is that I actually dressed up a bit. Good thing too. I just got a phone call from the Mayor asking for a favor. I was instrumental in starting an inclusiveness initiative in our community several years ago with him. And it seems that a local (well as local as you can get around here) university was going to be in town today to do a video interview for a class with him about that initiative. He asked if I would be available for them as well. So, dressing up today was good. I’m wearing jeans tomorrow so I hope there aren’t any surprises.

Today I’m thankful for a lot – good meetings, being appropriately attired, and, yes, a hard boiled egg!

Thanksgiving Project – Outdoor Lunch

Nothing says ‘relaxing lunch break’ better to me than sitting outside in the sun having lunch and reading. And it finally warmed up enough for that today.

I was supposed to have lunch with a friend today…indoors. I just couldn’t bear the thought of staying inside. The small town I work in only has three places to have lunch out on a patio – Taco Bell, Quiznos, and El Camino.

It’s a breezy, almost too breezy, day, but the tables outside at Quiznos are on a courtyard nestled between two buildings and they provide full sun. I’m loving it.

I bought a patio table for work but I need to get some landscaping done in order to have a spot for it. But you can bet that will be done really soon. Not only will it make me really happy, but my staff is excited too.

I’m thankful today for a spot to eat outside.
