Closed for Bidness

Yep, that’s icicles hanging from our Nandina bushes.

The city of San Antone shut down basically.  I had the privilege to work from home.  Saweet!!

Meant four, yes four cups of coffee!!  Watch out …those after effects are still going. Yet in my defense, they were small cups 🙂

B was off too.  In all my years of working from home on occassion, this is the first time he was here with me.  There have been other closures but that was back when closing meant closing not shifting to another locale.

The convo started at the crack of dawn and went something like this:

B: you gonna eat your cereal or are we making Sunday breakfast

Me: my cereal but make extra coffee please

B: I can do that (as he breaks out the waffle iron for Sunday breakfast … not me … I had cereal)

After breakfast

B: I’m bored

Me: I’m at work

B: Oh. OK.

Then he proceeds to ask me a bunch of questions, that do not matter because they are rhetorical and he is BORED!  Poor guy can’t sit still and this forced time out is pure torture!!

Me: Really, I am at work

He leaves … I could hear him on the phone.  Not enough to understand the conversations but enough to know he was talking to several people to just talk … about ICE.  Until noonish … when he comes back.

B:  You gonna eat your leftovers?

Me: Eventually

B: You get a lunch break.  What would you do at work?

Me: Eat at my desk like I do almost every day

B: That’s not right but OK

Me: You could spoil me even more, heat it up and bring it to me

Which he did … because he loves me 🙂

Awwww Saweet!

I just heard, tomorrow is back to normal … for me.

B: I can drive you to work tomorrow

I have to wonder if that sweet or is he already bored and planning on driving as something to do??  Either way, I’ll take it 🙂

As always, more to come.


#JusJoJan for 1/16/18 – Contemplation

Happy Icy Tuesday Everybody.  The lovely city of San Antonio TX has all but shut down.  Closed for bidness.  Freeing up time to participate in prompts.  Though I did werk it for more than a full day!! If you’d like to join, here are the Rules and Ping Back

Prompt: Contemplation

Suggested by: Cheryl who’s blog is The Bag Lady.  That was her link.  Go back, take a look.  You’ll be glad you did!

I am often lost in contemplation to a point where I have paralysis by analysis.  And that sucks y’all … really it blows!  Ugh! The would’ve, could’ve, should’ve, and what-ifs!  Mo-Fo’s all of them!!!!

Especially since contemplation is supposed to be a way to relax.

Or did I make that up?

Hmm, I am known for telling a yarn or two or three.

Google it J-Dub! Don’t just sit there in contemplation.

Here is what Webster’s has to say:

Definition of contemplation

1a concentration on spiritual things as a form of private devotion
  b a state of mystical awareness of God’s being
2an act of considering with attention study 

  • made the decision after much contemplation
3the act of regarding steadily 

  • was lost in quiet contemplation of the scene


Yep, I am doing it all wrong!  lol.

As always, more to come.
