Where do you go? What do you like to do?

Oh these days.......just keep going by......

Today begins the 'typically' hottest month of the year in North Texas. I strategically chose this week to take my car in for the hood replacement (that could take 6 days to complete) and work from home, therefore not getting out in this heat for a whole week if I choose not to. The pool is the only thing I can tolerate doing outside, unless I want to take a vigorous walk around midnight......(I don't think so).

I had a recent conversation where the person asked me, so....what do you do, where do you go? I was thinking about that today. It was a general question, I didn't list out details from the time the alarm blares in the morning until bedtime falls, and it cools down, oh say, two degrees maybe.

Where do I go?

If this is a work related question, you will find me here:

I LOVE having the dual screen at work, it makes my life much easier when attempting to multi-task, going in several different directions. The hourglass on the left is one where I designed the message, given to a team of very hard-working people who implemented a system my company uses. The message: "Thank You For Your Timeless Efforts". I turn it over from time to time and watch the sand drift very slowly into the bottom globe. But not for long, I'm busy! The phone on the desk almost seems like a decoration now. It dawned on me that I rarely use it. With technology being what it is these days, most of my communication is online. Hence, saving money for the company that I work for.

Sometimes I work from home, and that is a definite YAY in my world. Saves gas, time, money, and sanity. I'm only sort of kidding on the latter.

I can make my own coffee:

And I see my family as I walk down the hall, to go make said coffee:

But of course, every time I do that I'm reminded that I really, really need bigger, or more, bookshelves:

The hodge podge used to be quaint, now it's getting rather annoying to be honest. I can't decide if I want to get rid of the two book shelves that I have and get a nicer, bigger one, or just another one the same size. I already have two, bursting with books, as you can see, and movies. My list of wants grows daily.

What do I like to do?

I love playing spades. I'm not a poker player, mostly because I don't know how. It seems complicated but maybe I just haven't had the patience to sit down and try. I'm not a gambler by nature, so any game that I play is strictly for fun.

I like to stare at a painting in my house and imagine being inside of it.

Doesn't it make you want to walk down that cobblestome street, through the arched doorway, and see what's inside? After I stop at the little cafe of course. And have tea. And read. Or blog! Or read a blog post. Or.....just.sit.there.

I live pretty quiet for the most part. I love music, but not all of the time. I don't need background noise. Sometimes adding music to the day helps it move along, especially when I'm in the office. At home it can, at times, get so quiet you hear nothing but the ceiling fan, and me typing. When I'm reading, I definitely want quiet. I have quite a few books just waiting on me to start, I love that.

Sharing a glimpse of the two; where do I go and what do I do. If I want to go get a fabulous taco and see a movie, you could find me here:

Or here:

The Magnolia Theatre in Dallas is awesome. And The Taco Diner? Delicious, and right across the street. They had me at Brisket Tacos.

Where do you go? What do you like to do?

I can't wait to see a glimpse of your world my friend.
See you soon,

PS Some day we will go to that cafe in the picture, and have breakfast. I know we will.
