I awoke this morning, much like the rest of the world, to the shocking news that Anthony Bourdain had died.

Man was it nice to have the day off and I get another one tomorrow. My first weeks at work have been busy but now it is the real busy season and the pace has definitely picked up.

Another grey and showery day here in the PNW. That's okay, though, since we did have a few beautiful sunny days earlier in the week. Got my laundry out of the way first thing this morning so that is done. I finally have a massage next week and my neck needs it badly since muscle-relaxers … Continue reading December 16th, 2017
