35 days working from home in the book. I did discover a new positive about working from home this week. I had to go into the physical computer mine twice this week because Apple products suck. They really do. I have nothing positive to say about them.
But that isn’t the positive. The positive I figured out two positives for working from home on my trip to the mine.
One, I can control the lights in my office. I usually just daylight that streams in from my south facing office windows is enough. But on cloudy days I will sometimes run a lamp. If I need more light for some reason I can turn on the overhead lamp.
The mine has the soul crushing fluorescent lighting that is always on. I miss many things about the mine, but the lighting isn’t one of them.
The other positive, my own toilet paper. Seems like a minor thing, but the toilet paper at the mine leaves a lot to be desired. A lot!
My home listening habits were the same. Life 107.1 from 7-9. Then The Master Playlist until 2 PM roughly. This week I made it all the way to track number 1456, “Don’t Speak” by No Doubt.
A decent pandemic song:
“You and me, we used to be together
Every day together, always
I really feel that I’m losin’ my best friend
I can’t believe this could be the end”
I did delete a couple songs from the Master Playlist for sound quality reasons:
#1337 – “You” by Candlebox
#1299 – “Slow Ride” by Foghat
Pretty sure I will finish off the Master Playlist next week. At that time, it will be time, to start adding to it. That should be fun!
Here is a reminder that the Sharp family is collecting empty laundry detergent jugs to fill with homemade laundry detergent to donate to local pantries. They have setup a collection can at the end of their driveway for you to leave your empty jugs.
They live at the very end of Division Street. Keep going south on Division until you can’t go any farther. It is easy and contact free. I dropped off a couple of jugs last night:
If you can’t find it, drop your jugs off to me and I’ll get them there.
Here are a few pictures of their soap operation that Andy has sent me:
It is a great ministry and I hope some of you can help them out!
Last Saturday I went over to Iowa State to walk the campus with Teresa. While I was there I took a few TREE pictures that didn’t quite make the cut for THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE on Monday. Here are a few of them:
Iowa State University, still world’s reigning champ for most beautiful campus!
The cherry blossom pictures are from my backyard though.
