Franciscan Focus

Just a simple blog of a Secular Franciscan trying to live with a Franciscan focus.

July 12 of 12 

Behold, the mundane minutiae of my day! Yep, it's time for July's 12 of 12.

A cabinet in my cube at work. Ooooh, aaaah.
9:45 a.m.
My morning was pretty much the same as last month's 12 of 12, so this is a shot of a cabinet in my cube at work. Ooooh, aaaah.

Sushi boats floating by.
12:00 p.m.
For lunch, my coworkers and I went to a Japanese restaurant that features a spiffy sushi bar. We contemplate what we'll eat as the little sushi-laden boats float by.

A coworker helpfully points out my sushi choice.
12:10 p.m.
A coworker points out the plate I grabbed. They call it a McHenry roll, but that doesn't sound too Japanese to me. Nonetheless, it's darn tasty.

Preparing a handout for a document review meeting.
2:00 p.m.
Preparing a handout to remind folks about the point of document review meetings, which is to ensure that our user docs are technically accurate, complete, and ready for release. They're not for things like philosophical discussions on punctuation usage. At the last one, folks got sidetracked into a Serious And Involved Discussion on (I kid you not) the proper way to refer to "email."

Driving home from work.
6:30 p.m.
Driving home from work and in a Grumpy Mood following the aforementioned review meeting. This time, we had some last-minute waffling about the way stuff was supposed to work in the software. Two days before our completion date. Must ... have ... ice cream ...

Deciding which flavor of ice cream to buy.
6:45 p.m.
At the grocery store, trying to decide which flavor of ice cream to buy. No time to eat it when I get home, though, because ...

Concert in the park.
7:50 p.m.
... I'm attending an outdoor concert in which Husband Mike (he's a musician) is performing. This group is one of the many bands he's in, and this is their summer concert-in-the-park series. After playing "The Star-Spangled Banner", the program started with a medley of Superman stuff. I especially liked the Pirates of the Caribbean arrangement near the end.

Knotting Rosaries while listening to the concert.
8:15 p.m.

Ice cream!
9:45 p.m.
Finally, I can dig into that ice cream! Husband Mike shows off the flavor I picked, "In A Crunch". I liked it, he thought it was lame. Picky, picky.

Playing with The B.
10:45 p.m.
Playing with The B in the hopes it'll tire him out before we go to sleep. (Didn't work.)

Books to read.
11:00 p.m.
Ah, Husband Mike picked up some books I wanted from the library. (Aunt Dimity and the Deep Blue Sea and The Grail Bird: Hot on the Trail of the Ivory-billed Woodpecker.) What a sweetie!

Brushing my teeth before bed.
11:30 p.m.
:::yawn::: Brushin' my choppers before bed.
