Lazy Saturday

I haven't been great about posting very often recently. I guess it seems like there's not a whole lot new going on. Lets, see . . . today was a nice relaxing day. I ran this morning (but not fast), made fudge (found that a candy thermometer makes all the difference in the world - thanks Trisha!), sat by a moon bounce thing this afternoon until rained out, then took a nap before supper. Not exactly the kind of exciting day one wants to blog about!

This week at work somewhat of a transformation occurred. Our company is being sold to a private investment group and they are visiting this week. So, we got to 5S everywhere. For us in engineering, that meant that we cleaned up our engineering testing area as well as our offices. We were able to purchase a couple cabinets for our stuff so for the first time we actually had a place for everything. We filled the cabinets with bins and even labeled them. It actually turned out really nice and feels good to have easy access to all our stuff. I don't think my office have ever been so clean. I was able to take many of my important parts and old versions of our products and move them down to storage boxes in our newly organized engineering area. I don't know if the organized look will last, but I hope that it will.

I had a lazy Saturday too, after I danced at the Heritage Festival. I mostly just played games with Rachael and Jubilee and read a book and talked...

I know how it feels to have a clean work area. A few weeks ago I got another bookshelf for my office and was able to put all of my project notebooks on the shelf rather than having the stacked on my desk. It felt great to actually see the wood grain of the desk.

I like your new picture. It looks like a nice fall day. The temperature here (in Oklahoma) has cooled down so we are in the high 80s or low 90s during the day, but the lows are supposed to get down to the 50s this week. I guess fall will be here soon.

Fall sure does sound nice and it's actually feeling almost cold in the morning during my walks!

My coworkers have been amazed that so far my desk has remained clean. It sure is nice to have a place for stuff. Now I just need to clean up some at home!
