It was a good morning.

This morning Coffee Emporium had a barista visiting Grey Midwest

She was making espresso an drip coffees and hot chocolates for everyone…

Coffee Emporium’s hot chocolate was really delicious…

So this morning I ended up having two hot chocolates. It was my lucky day! Both of them were really good. And it was also really foggy this morning downtown…

It was a pretty good morning in downtown Cincinnati. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈπŸŒ«οΈβ€οΈ

It’s the best feeling.

I survived another pretty hectic week at work. It’s funny to me. My old job was a total cakewalk. It wasn’t very challenging. The people I worked with weren’t very appreciative of any amount of effort. And as a result, I never really felt like part of the team. It wasn’t great by any stretch of the imagination and I stayed there way too long.

My job now is definitely challenging. The deadlines are pretty intense. I have to work on projects in the evenings and sometimes over the weekends. But the efforts I make are noticed and very much appreciated. And I feel like an integral, valued part of the team.
I divide my time between two teams that service multiple clients. Big clients. I get to participate in client meetings and the clients appreciate the efforts as well.

Sometimes deadlines for the two teams overlap and it creates a bottleneck like it did this week. I had two big projects both with deadlines on Friday. It was a pretty stressful week, compounded by the fact that I took my birthday off. I had a bunch of stuff to get done and the asks kept evolving. But I got everything all done and done well. And when everything was finally done, it was the best feeling in the world.

I really like being busy at work. And I really like feeling part of the team. It’s rewarding.
I really like my job. I really like the work, I really like where I work,

And I love this view

The only bad part after a long week is I don’t feel like doing much of anything afterward.πŸ˜€πŸ™οΈβ€οΈ

Don’t mind if I do!

There was January birthday cake at Grey Midwest this afternoon…

I was born in January, some of that is my cake. Thank you very much. Cake always tastes better when it’s birthday cake.

And here’s the view as I was heading out of the building…

I just love that view. πŸ˜€πŸŽ‚β€οΈ

A foggy morning in Northside.

It was another foggy morning in Northside. πŸ˜€πŸŒβ€οΈ

And it was really foggy downtown too…

Downtown details.

I just love this view from the ninth floor of 302 West Third Street…

And I also love looking up at Carew Tower as I’m walking down Fourth Street on my way to catch the Metro 17 bus home…

Good evening from downtown Cincinnati. πŸ˜€πŸŒ‡β€οΈ

Oh, and the little #CincyStreetBot in the crosswalk at Walnut and Seventh Streets doesn’t look like it’s holding up so well…

It was another rainy day.

It was another rainy day in Cincinnati. πŸ˜€πŸŒ§οΈβ˜”οΈβ€οΈ

A grey day to be back at Grey.

It was a very grey and rainy day to be back downtown at Grey

But it was a wonderful really long thirteen-day holiday break. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈπŸŒ§οΈβ€οΈ

Holiday break.

I won’t be here for the next thirteen days…

I have a vacation day tomorrow. And then Grey Midwest decided to close the office from December 23rd until January 2nd. Thirteen days off with nothing to do and nowhere to go. This is going to be a very relaxing staycation. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Grey counter volcano.

Not to make light of what’s happening in New Zealand but this paper-mache volcano has been sitting on a counter at Grey Midwest

I really want to watch this volcano explode. But I don’t want to bust up someone’s fifth-grade science project but also I don’t want to clean up the mess. πŸ˜€πŸŒ‹β€οΈ

Window washers are brave.

The window washers are back. This time on the building across Plum Street…

Ugh. As I’ve said before, I do not do well with heights. And I’d be terrified that this would happen. No thank you.Β πŸ˜¬β¬†οΈβ€οΈ
