This past work week has been a nice one--I wish EVERY week could be Staff Appreciation Week! Today was particularly lovely since our office closed at 1 p.m. and we all went to lunch at one of the nicer restaurants in town. I took a couple photos on the drive to the restaurant.

Can you see that silver guy? In front of the store with "home accessories"? Too bad I didn't have time to stop--he would have made an interesting conversation piece in my living room, don't you think? I wanted to zoom in a bit, but the light turned green so I snapped the picture and stepped on the gas.

A brief glimpse of the state capitol in passing. (No AH-NOLD to be seen though!)

After lunch, I left the restaurant a little after 3:30. By the time I retrieved my car from valet parking and drove across town through Friday work commute traffic, I arrived home at 4:15, which is at least two hours before I normally do--what a nice start to the weekend!

In fact, I managed to finish cleaning house (which I had started in the morning before work), gave our older cat a bath (she kinda had a little, ummm, "accident" and needed a little assistance), got these babies into the ground--

took care of some email correspondence, and took my own bath, all by 7 p.m.! Now my "chores" are done and I'm ready to spend the weekend "playing" in the Sweat Shop. Hey, I even got a jump on my Day of Beauty routine--my legs are shaved smooth as a baby's behind!

I love weekends! I hope you have some fun planned for yours!

Good Morning,
Enjoyed your blog so much this morning. I had not read the last cocuple of post and the Purina Dog story gave me a good laugh. Thanks for starting my day off with a smile.

I want to know what the blue things are behind the tomato plants. Looks like you have Christmas lights on them.
Better watch trying to take pictures while you're driving. I think that is almost as bad as talking on your cell phone. LOL

Nice pictures, Kim sorry about your injuries in this dangerous hobby

You have been a busy girl! I need a little 'staff appreciation' but alas, I work for a hospital through my own home. Hmm.... maybe a massage from the hubby? Nahh..

Love the silver guy - how cool is that? Hooray for you to get sooooo much done - even shaving your legs - so you can spend the weekend doing whatever your crafty heart desires.
