Grey Midwest Volunteer Day.

Today was Grey Midwest Volunteer Day. There were three different volunteer activities to choose from. I got to volunteer at the Cincinnati Zoo‘s Animal Enrichment Program in the Zoo’s P&G Discovery Forest…

Right up there on the little platform is an adorable sloth…

Today, we were building cubes for the animals to play with made out of old fire hose…

Ours was going to be the biggest cube intended for the elephants to play with. After a couple of hours, we had one layer down, five more to go…

But then we had to start over because we weren’t doing it right…

At least there were pop-ice…

Other people were building little cubes for the smaller animals…

Here’s a little bit bigger cube…

And even bigger still…

Our cube was supposed to be six hose weaved cube…

We got two layers done before it was time to go…

It was fun but it was a lot more work than I thought it would be. πŸ˜€πŸ˜πŸ”²β€οΈ

It’s a sunny day at Grey.

It was another pretty day at Grey Midwest in downtown Cincinnati…

I just love that view from the ninth floor of our building. And speaking of love, there was a carrot cake in one of the Grey refrigerators…

It must be time for birthdays again. πŸ˜€πŸŽ‚β€οΈ

It’s such a pretty morning.

It was such a pretty morning in downtown Cincinnati. πŸ˜€πŸ™οΈβ€οΈ

The old switcheroo.

This morning at Grey, they replaced our normal Friday morning bagels with donuts from Daylight Donuts. Let’s see if anyone notices…

I would take donuts over bagels every day. And twice on Fridays. Just saying.Β πŸ˜€πŸ©β€οΈ

Seen and noted.

I was trying to take a photo of downtown Cincinnati from one of the windows at Grey Midwest. And my Polaroid CUBE+ took a selfie of itself instead…

A grey day at Grey.

It was a rainy and grey day at Grey…Β 

But there was a little bit of sunshine waiting in one of Grey’s refrigerators…

It’s a DQ ice cream cake! We must be celebrating June birthdays soon! πŸ˜€β˜‚οΈπŸŽ‚πŸ¦β€οΈ

UPDATE: We had DQ ice cream cake on Friday!

Also, DQ ice cream cake is so good!

It has begun.

The USWNT finally got their World Cup started with today’s match against Thailand…

It was pretty neat to see USWNT on the big screen at work today. When I got out of my meeting, they were already up 7-0. And they would go on to a shocking 13-0 thumping of Thailand.Β πŸ˜€βš½οΈπŸ†β€οΈ

We ate this.

At work, there are two entire refrigerators that are stocked full of different food items for everyone to enjoy. They almost always have a bunch of different loaves of bread, cheeses, ham and/or turkey. And today, I made myself first sammich I made with the company lunch meat at Grey Midwest

It’s pretty cool. And pretty brilliant. If you give your employees access to a bunch of different food stuffs, they’ll make themselves something to eat and get back to work instead of running out and taking a long lunch. Pretty clever.

And then we had spaghetti and garlic bread for dinner…

I love spaghetti and garlic bread. πŸ˜€πŸ₯ͺ🍝❀️

A Grey Friday.

As promised, I switched desks at work today. I wasn’t the only person. Almost everyone shifted desks at work today. Here was my old set-up…

And here is my new set-up…

Pretty much exactly the same. Just a little bit further from the window. Bit of a bummer.

And that makes this, the last WyzeCam photo from Grey Midwest

Dang. At least, they brought in a whole bunch of different McDonalds breakfast stuffs for the big move this morning…

I ate a bacon, egg & cheese biscuit and almost immediately didn’t feel good. And that’s why I don’t eat McDonalds.

The view from the other side of Grey’s floor looking east is so pretty. I love all the highways overlapping each other and there are some train tracks over there with the Ohio River and the rolling hills in the background…

And those clouds…

If I could set-up a WyzeCam looking out of this window. I would probably watch this view all day long. I’d never get anything done.

On the bus ride home, I got to see the progress they’ve been making on the building they were constructing across from where I used to work…

They’ve really made some progress. And I finally feel like have too. πŸ€”πŸ’»πŸ“·πŸš§β€οΈ

Look up in the sky.

Compared to yesterday, today was very pretty downtown…

I really like my window view at work. But tomorrow, I have to change desks and most likely won’t have my spot by the window anymore. And it’s a bummer. πŸ˜€πŸ™οΈπŸŒ«οΈβ€οΈ
