The Little Things

The last couple weeks have been consuming and emotional and bittersweet. Mostly I’ve realized that I have the best friends in the world.

I’ve also realized that Earthbound Bakery makes the best sandwiches in the world.

As our annual company party snuck up, I finally got some sort of a presentation whipped up (hence the video I posted awhile ago). Pretending I was a big-timer and getting my feet cleaned up while working on the presentation.

We threw together some (very) last minute favors – argh next year I hope we can get a little more creative. The good part was the fresh roasted coffee beans from Broadway Roastery ♥

Had an assembly line of help the day of – Joe’s head is kind of ridiculous (panorama for ya)!

The evening went off great – we rented a novelty photobooth that turned out to be quite a hit :)

I ♥ Collective. Mostly their coffee but their sandwiches are pretty tasty too.

One day our trainmaster and I got to do an emergency rip into Stoon yard and throw on some railcar seals. Not everyday do I get that privilege ;)

Saturday Cinderella got back to work. Just kidding but I did give the office a much-needed clean.

And my wonderful helper installed a redneck sink so it’s easier to wash dishes and stuff! (It’s quite tricky doing dishes in a teensy bathroom sink.)

Which means I brought my juicer to work!! Yay – this may be the biggest highlight ever. I spend more time at work then I do at home so it makes way more sense to have it at work :)

And now a sink to wash it up in! Like the title says, it’s the little things …

Been workin’ on a fun project to get our conductors reporting methodically. I’ve drawn all the stations and sidings based on Google Maps/Earth and sketches from our head trainmaster … I was about to get into it but I’ll leave it at that and not bore you to tears.

Design work = a great excuse to divert to a coffee shop for a few hours

And a bit obsessed with kale in my salads lately. I’ve always liked it but love it even more knowing that when you massage with olive oil and let sit, it softens a wee bit. Boyfriend loves it too ♥

Speaking of delish salads, this was a lentil/goat cheese/apple/etc salad at City Perks that was such a treat. So much flavor.

Another office project that I am absolutely stoked about …

The conductor project continues (several drafts later) …

Also on the hunt for a vehicle. I want a beaut like this!! I’m only half kidding.
So far everything I’ve looked at has kinda fallen through so wish me luck :)
