An early end

My weekend is over and it’s back to the job that pays the bills. No holiday. Sometimes I sit back and chuckle at the thought of how many people will apply for this position when I leave it. Oh, it’s a good company, and challenging work. It’s the schedule that sucks. Weekends, holidays, and nights.

Each week I suck it up and know that I’m closer to the days I no longer have to do this. So that keeps me going along with a number of other incentives. I guess I’m just jealous that most people I know are off. And jealousy isn’t a good thing so let me find something else to focus on.

I didn’t get out to do much shooting today at all. Spent it sanding a door frame. One time I took a pause and looked at the pool fence behind me and saw the wood pattern above looking at me. So I had to grab the camera and get at least one fresh shot today. I have no idea what is growing out of the wood knots but that along with the wood grain does make interesting eyes and nose.

I’m looking forward to Monday even though there is some rain in the forecast. I will get out and shoot something new besides a fence post. That is unless I find another interesting face on another board.

Random Thoughts of the Day (evening edition)

  • Working with younger people keeps you learning.
  • We are going to test the back and see if we can split some wood this week. I have alerted the medicine cabinet to be on alert.
  • If it does rain tomorrow it will give me the time to catch up on a lot of printing I need to do.
