Yes, it is cold, but...

Yes, it is cold, but at least it was sunny today. The frozen lake looked bright blue from my work window. What's even better is it is almost 6 PM and it is not dark yet. There is a beautiful red sunset over the lake.

Can you tell I'm in a good mood? I am loving recovery week. I got my new orthotics last night, which I need to break in for the next week before attempting running in them, but I have a good feeling about them. I had my mid-year review at work and it was all positive stuff.

I can't say enough good things about my office. The people are so nice and the atmosphere is much nicer than my old job. February 19-23 is official "fun" week here. They are catering in lunch every day, bringing in Foosball and video games, having euchre & poker tournaments, playing Pictionary, Scene It and Family Feud and providing us with a free ticket to an Omnimax theatre movie at the Great Lakes Science Center one day that week. Their motto is "you work hard, so you should get to play hard too". That's pretty cool.

I'm off to Yoga soon with my pals. Sara, we'll hope to see you next week.

I'm going to Houston tomorrow with Sam. Hopefully, I'll have some good pictures when I return. We won't be going to the rodeo after all (my friend had the dates mixed up), but we'll still do lots of fun stuff including possibly riding a mechanical bull!
