Kitties and Peeps!
I have the BEST news ever! Here's a semi-bad cell phone picture:
Do you see? DO YOU SEE???
It's an adjustable work station that I can stand up at! Or sit down, if I so desire. You might ask why this is such a big deal--it's because I am such a shorty that despite whatever chair I sit in at work I have to lean in at strange and unnatural angles to use the keyboard and see the monitors, which aggravates my lower back to no end. I thought this day would never come...it's great. I only work at this particular plant two days a week but we will be getting a similar setup at the other one too. Hopefully soon. I find that I move around a lot more, which should be good for extra chocolate consumption, right?
We had glorious warm sunny spring days last week, and Friday Scott discovered a few hundred bees (really!) hanging out in one of our arborvitae bushes. (They were very docile, not Africanized I don't think.)
I asked a blogging pal--The Fabulous Knatolee--who keeps bees (as well as cats, dogs, and assorted over-amorous fowls)--about this and she thinks the bees are most likely collecting the sap on the arborvitae branches to take back to their hive. This sounds reasonable to me, we always have tons of bees in our back yard but right now nothing much is blooming yet, so apparently they are foraging whatever they can find. Scott and I are going to set up a bee-watch to see if we can discover where the hive is located.

Oh! I almost forgot...I finally got my hair cut! I've only been threatening to do it for about two months...I got three inches off and now its shoulder length again, perfect for pony-tail weather. It's astounding how curly my white hair is. Eventually I'll be a frizzy white-haired crazy cat lady. Maybe I'll carry a cane, too--just for fun. You know, to whack slow people in line, and such. Whippersnappers.
Happy Sunday, and have a great week!
