Work (Play), Work (Play)... (smile)

I had to work on Monday, which had not been planned at all.

Marilyn mistressmarilyn took me in after Rafa's match was over -- then she went to Sauvie Island with sister Sue to pick green tomatoes.

We BOTH worked today -- but we'd known all along that we were going to need to.

Tom came by the office today!!! He brought us Starbucks (we were both out, so we were excited to get it!!!) and he and I went to lunch, which was very nice. He also donated $20 to one of the local organizations that runs posters of missing children when a woman hit him up, reminding me why I love this guy. He's incredibly generous.

I didn't get very much done today at the office, although I tackled several projects. But it was fun 'goofing off' with Tom! So what the hell.

I recently finished a book I liked and have now started another (and am half way through it). I've been playing a TON of Zuma, too. So in spite of work, I've been playing and enjoying my vacation. (grin)

It's now 4:30 a.m. (time flies and all that), so I should go to bed.

We've planned our ROAD TRIP with Tom for Friday (rather than tomorrow), based on the fact that Rafa Nadal will be playing his second round at the U.S. Open tomorrow, which is a 'must see.' More about that soon!

I still have more photos to share (as usual), too...

bummed out

More Festival Layoffs... (sigh)

In 2007, we had four layoffs at the festival during the summer (in July).

Marilyn's sweet boy Henry (Tudor Cat) is currently in my lap, very demanding of my attention. I guess I'd better give him some before we head out for our tanning apointment (it's at 9:00, so we have to leave by 8:30 p.m. to get there).

Rafa's match was a good one. He played Ryler De Heart (of the U.S.A.), who was very game! He and his finance seemed like cool people...

Regardless, I was pleased to see Nadal win in three: 6-1, 6-2, 6-4


People Are Amazing...

People are amazing. They're strong. They're good.

Marilyn mistressmarilyn and I have to go down to the office so that after midnight I can put in the Friday backup tape. Then we need to get home and get some sleep before our Road Trip with Tom (and maybe Jessica?) tomorrow.

We might get together with Rich to play tennis over the weekend (weather allowing). And Jodi is going to drop by the house either Sunday or Monday. Everything will be fine, I'm sure. And I know good things will happen for my friends.
