ten on ten: february 2011

Thursday... the last day of my work week.  I stepped out into the fog with a Friday feeling, toting my camera along for ten on ten.   
Finally at work, safe and sound, I peer out through my window and seek my view- except that it was blocked in by the fog bank over the Gulf.  All day the fog rolled in and out... and the day stretched on.  Sleepiness kept sneaking in and then I remembered... I had been awake since just before three. 

I worked away the afternoon, thankful for a bulletin board full of smiling faces... egging me on towards the weekend.  The mess all aound me makes me laugh... but finally, the clock inches its way around, I restore order, and wish everyone a great weekend. Homeward bound. 
A turn into the neighborhood, and my mouth strikes a grin.  Almost there.  

In the door, greeted by Laura and Cam... and I was tempted to put on my jammies and curl up for a nap.  But then the sunshine broke through... scattering golden light around the livingroom.  Enough motivation to make a cup of tea and treat myself to cranberry swirl toast. 
When Eric walks in the door I can't help but sing It's the weekend!  It's the weekend!  And it is... for both of us.  After dinner there is a little tv and time to just be...
(not a very clear picture of Cam... but I loved how both he & Scout were looking up at me!)
Finally settling in my panda jammies... and a little American Idol.  Let the weekend begin! 
(Uh... yes.  That is my winter village, still up on February tenth... four days after the Superbowl!)

Linking up for ten on ten fun!  And maybe next month the 10th won't fall on a work day?  Oh wait.  Yes, it will.  I'll have to find another view of my work to share!

ooh is that the cranberry swirl bread from Trader Joe's? The blueberry is really really yummy too. Also makes delicious french toast. I love the way your photos really tell the story of your day!
