Yesterday morning I took Olga on a walk down by the canal, where she ran and frolicked as usual. I spent the time shooting some detail photos of the boats moored there.

We left the house at about 10:15 and I had to be at work at noon. So I don't know why I thought I had so much spare time. Suddenly I looked at my watch and it was 11 a.m. -- and I was half a mile from home, unshowered, no lunch, with a half-hour commute ahead of me. Panic!

I dragged Olga home (literally) and in a frenzy of activity managed to get myself to work only five minutes late.

I think my time management skills may have slipped a little since I've been working at home on a flexible schedule. It's funny how relentless going to work every day seems now! But my act will get together, don't worry. I've always been the punctual type.

Today, I don't have to work at the school, so Olga will get the longer, more leisurely walk that was denied her yesterday. In fact, though I have a couple of meetings next week, I am pretty much finished for the summer. I signed my contract for the new job yesterday. Woo hoo!

I love that you can walk down to the canals. That just charms me. Also, that you're going to be working in a library. Yep. Charming.

I was 5 minutes late for work today. I hit snooze FOUR times (or maybe even 5 - I lost count). Ugh. Fortunately my boss is on vacation :)

Neat little glimpses of canal detail.
Punctuality: there must be an app for that.
