Downtown details.

It was cold outside today. I was going to walk through the Skywalk to avoid the cold on my way to the bus. On my way to the Skywalk, I noticed that the Millenium Hotel was closed and undergoing a liquidation sale…

I walked through the Hyatt Regency up to the second floor across The Skywalk over to Carew Tower. Carew Tower was having their 2020 Fight For Air Climb to support the American Lung Association by climbing the 804 Stairs over 45 floors of Carew Tower…

I was going to continue on through the Skywalk from Carew Tower across Fifth Street to Fountain Place but that portion Skywalk was closed…

I left Carew Tower and noticed the skating rink on Fountain Square had been taken down, just as it’s starting to feel like actual skating weather…

The Booksellers on Fountain Square is closed now…

Looking inside Fountain Place everything is closed. And that made me wonder what happened to Palomino up on the second floor

I went to see if Palomino was still there and it didn’t look good…

And Palomino’s gone and that’s pretty sad. I was happy to see that the Toynbee Tile was still on Seventh Street…

And I noticed that there was a new-to-me Artworks mural on the side of the Hustler just a little ways down Seventh Street…

I walked by Deskey and they removed the mantra they had on their front windows

I always thought the mantra was kind of ridiculous. The almost full moon was already starting to pop out from behind the buildings…

And the exterior of the building at the corner of Eighth and Main Streets looked really close to being completed…

It’s interesting to me how much things can change downtown over just a few months but also just how much things stay the same. And the only real constant is change.

My last day at Deskey.

After six years, today was my last day at Deskey. This is what my office looked like at the end of last week before I accepted the offer for my new position…

And here’s what it looked like this morning…

I’m going to miss being able to see Carew Tower out of my office window…

I’m not going miss that terrible ArtWorks mural of the pale lady staring at me all day…

I’m really going to miss watching the construction across the street take shape…

You know it’s time to move on when that’s the thing you’re going to miss the most…

Thanks for a good six years, Deskey. Best wishes for your continued success. Say what you will, it’s definitely been an experience…

Turning the page, and onto the next chapter. We’ll be staying in Cincinnati. I’m joining the Midwest office of the Grey Group as a Senior Designer. I’m sooo excited about this new adventure.Β  My first day will be next Wednesday.Β πŸ˜€πŸ‘‹β€οΈ

Deskey’s Opening Day Celebration

Deskey hosted their annual Opening Day Celebration

It was a pretty fun afternoon. Thankfully, I didn’t have to do any Opening Day front window installations this year. Click to see all the photos I took at Deskey’s Opening Day Celebration. πŸ˜€βšΎοΈπŸŒ­πŸ†β€οΈ

Deskey Pi Day Pie Contest.

Deskey had a Pi Day Pie Contest today to celebrate Pi Day on 3.14…

There were two savory pies and five sweet pies. All of them were pretty tasty. πŸ˜€πŸ₯§β€οΈ

Happy Fat Tuesday.

There was King Cake at work today for Fat Tuesday…

King Cake is pretty darn tasty. πŸ˜€πŸ‘Άβ€οΈ

Deskey chili cookoff.

At work today, there was a Deskey chili cookoff

There were even celebrity guest judges from Arnold’s because everything has to be a dang competition…

And Becky was the winner with her #4 chili…

And then there were cupcakes for January birthdays…

And we also revealed our Deskey Secret Valentines. It made for a pretty fun afternoon. πŸ˜€πŸ–οΈβ€οΈ

Deskey Secret Valentines.

We drew names at work for Deskey Secret Valentines. I drew our proofreader, Susan and here are the valentines I made for her…

I was just going to do the little photo of her dog Jack who is a pretty funny little dog. He reminds me a lot of Oscar. But then I was looking at Pinterest and saw these other ideas that I thought were pretty cute as well. The inside of little card said, “Thanks a LATTE for all you do.” And inside the dynamite sticks were stacks of Reese’s mini peanut butter cups. Pinterest is awesome for getting ideas for stuff like this.

Here’s the Deskey Secret Valentine that I received…

I got this awesome little owl made out of seashells…

And that means the seashell bunny I got from the Deskey White Elephant gift exchange a couple of years back has a new best friend…

Deskey Secret Valentines are pretty fun. πŸ˜€πŸ¦‰πŸ°β€οΈ

My work set-up.

I took a photo of my set-up at work this morning. I have it pretty nice…

The MacBook and iPad are mine from home. Work provides the desktop with the dual monitors and the really nice view of downtown Cincinnati. πŸ˜€πŸ’»πŸ™οΈβ€οΈ

Watch that first step.

They were working on the elevator today at work…

Have you ever looked up a six-floor elevator shaft before?

Me either. Watch that first step. It’s a doozie. Taken with Instagram. πŸ˜€πŸ†™β€οΈ

Seen and noted: Indoor Snowball Fight.

I saw this at work today…

An indoor snowball fight sounds like so much fun. We’re going to have to track one of these down for our home. πŸ˜€β„οΈβ€οΈ
