New Beginnings


It's over. I'm finally done with my job in Cleveland. No more commute. No more nonsense. Well, no more of that brand of nonsense. Summer is over and fall is here. No more lawn mowing. No more mosquito bites.

Fresh crisp air and a dissipation of the strangling humidity. New job, new friends and a bright shiny new set of 15 hours I've regained in my weekly schedule by working closer to home. That also means about 3k saved a year in gas and that much less greenhouse emissions. I may even be able to quit taking antidepressants.
Now I have time to sit and watch the grass grow.

  3. OOOH, YEAH, that's gotta be NIIICE!!

    Somehow with fall approaching, I'd think a light orange or brown might be more a propos.

    but that would also be the colour of shit, and who wants to look at THAT when so many good things are happening??

  5. I like it. I think green suits you. We can associate green with new growing things, which you'll no doubt be doing. I'm jealous of the new job biz, though-- if you find one lying about on the cutting room floor, send it my way, would you?

    Oh, and what are you going to do with your extra 15 hours?

  6. Congratulations Flannery! Nice to shrug off the yoke of the old job I bet, and I like the added Chlorophyll
    on the blog page.

  11. You just reminded me... I have a hammock in the back yard that needs my urgent attention before it gets much colder.

  12. I thought "new beginnings" was some sort of feminine product.

  13. Sweet. Time to also sit around, drink lots of beer, and tell Doc that "you'll be back in twenty minutes".
