April 12 of 12

April 12 of 12 is already here!!!!


I haven't blogged about this yet - but I was laid off from my job on Monday (yes, again ... ). So, I had a day off with my partner Scott ...

Here is my day:

7:04 a.m.: Woke up earlier than this, but by the time I found my glasses and crawled out from under the puppy, I took this picture ...


7:17 a.m. Online to see what's going on in the world ... sad news.


8:27 a.m. Breakfast of champions ...


9:43 a.m.: My glamorous life: time to clean the upstairs bathroom:

10:48 a.m.: Time to do something about those black bananas on top of the refrigerator:

11:32 a.m.: While I was making the banana bread, Scott brought in the mail - including this ... the formal job offer from the firm I used to work for, offering me a management position!

12:34 p.m.: The grass REALLY needs to be cut ... for the first time this year, no matter how damp it still is!


4:39 p.m.: Home from the grocery store ...


5:16 p.m.: Scott playing in the yard with Kali. Doesn't the grass look shorter???

5:23 p.m.: Scott taking my picture taking his picture taking ...



6:18 p.m.: Another load of laundry done, bed is all made ...




7:23 p.m.: Dinner is ready - prawn and broccoli stir-fry with pork potstickers ...





Bonus picture: This month the theme was a random word generator, so everyone has a different theme. My random word was "sheer":

Me holding the pruning shears in front of the (semi) sheer dining room drapes ... okay, so I took a little artistic liberty with that one.

Until next month - Happy 12 of 12!

Ok, now I don'r feel quite as bad about OUR lawn. :-)

Cleaning, cooking, gardening ... it's a picture of true domestic bliss.

Being laid off doesn't seem too bad when there's another offer in the mail.

I'm so sorry to hear about your job, Matt.

Claudine said...

great pictures, sorry to hear about the job but it looks like good news came just in time...

Your backyard looks beautiful...and it's very interesting to see your grass, as mid-western grass is quite different (though if you happen to follow the link to my 12 of 12, the grass is covered in snow)!

I'm sorry you were laid off, but how cool that you get a job offer so soon after it!
