i have a habit of whining about my work to friends. it's not a tendency i am particularly happy or proud of since i am one of those fortunate people who really likes their job, challenges and all. as with most people, i presume, my complaints are just an outlet for stress, but i could try to locate more productive methods for letting out my vexation.
blogger lunchin'n'workin': 1. cold avocado soup and coffee from sis.deli and a good, freshly out-of-the-mailbox read. 2. good old cherry vans slipons. 3. sheer tee from cos, denim shorts from current/elliott. 4. park office essentials: macbook pro, iphone case by louis vuitton, vivienne westwood for sigg water bottle, sandwich and coffee from sis.deli, reflecting blogger wearing tee from zara men and denim shorts by current/elliot.
therefore, i want to remind myself and share one of the incredibly great things about my job: if i have no f2f meetings arranged, i can work whenever and wherever i want. digital media means i need my laptop and internet and i am good to go anywhere. sure, my clients call and i must be available, but my physical location is not important. although i am enthusiastic about having an office to go to, on days like these, the lure of sunshine is irresistible. thus, i have taken a couple of hours each of these past hot days to enjoy a long, working lunch at the park with my dog.
for her, these hours are precious since the cold months deprive her of exercise. moreover, the park provides endless sense data she greedily sniffs from the air and the ground – a blind as a bat dog has a limited set of entertainment. for me, the sun soothes my skin and i can just about feel the tingle of vitamin d production and you really cannot beat the view of blooming flowers and green grass.
the wildlife: 1. jorma nibbling a stick she found with her 7 remaining teeth. 2. a ladybug visit. 3. jorma claiming the weekday bag. 4. flowers next to my portable office. 5. jorma sniffing the news.
have you been able to enjoy the sun?
