another day off

normally, i’d have been pto for a day and a half now, would have hiked somewhere in the mountains, and have eaten some serious steak and bacon. but this year, i’m still here in knoxtropolis. i realized that for the past two years, i’ve taken the second half of this particular week off. wednesday and thursday had left me feeling like i just wanted to get away form the office, but i didn’t know why until i reviewed my history. but i did decide to take friday off else i would have probably gone insane.  this is what i get for not taking a relaxing beach holiday this year.  i’ll have to see about doing that for next summer.

today’s plan:  compile christmas list (at my mom’s request), coffee at starbucks and some chatting in irc, run some errands, cook some chili, watch some tv, attend my niece’s [real] football game, and prepare to sleep in tomorrow morning.  i might nap in there somewhere too.

breakfast at the kns

every so often, the guys down stairs at the kns whip up some breakfast.  this morning was one of those “oftens.”  bacon, eggs, sausage, biscuits, waffles, pancakes, cheesy potatos, and bacon.  it was a good morning.  and now i have lunch, since there were leftovers.  wanna see?  check out a few shots.  (thanks, jim and don!)
