the week in pictures
Oh my god, people.
That, right there, is Kassler Rippchen Mit Sauerkraut, which is smoked pork with sauerkraut and caraway and juniper and homemade grainy mustard. And the potatoes! Mashed with apple and onions with caramelized onions on top. This is the way to start a week.
Left hand, looking pretty damned good. I did lots of fine motor work this week AND have been practicing my writing.
Using a marker makes it easier. Da Umberto is an amazing restaurant, btw.
File under what to do...what to do...
A new employee wears alarmingly short skirts every single day. Fortunately, the weather demands tights at the moment. Who knows what spring will bring. I sort of ignored it but my younger counterparts tell me they are uncomfortable. As the unofficial personnel coordinator, I could speak to HR, but I don't think there are grounds. I think it's just a question of poor fashion choices.
I'm thinking about it. (They're cringing.) It's a casual office and people can pretty much wear what they like but must still be appropriate (people in shorts have been sent home).
It's boots all the time in the city. Cold, windy, wet. Boots.
I saw this little boy in the morning and the evening yesterday.
And I see the little girls in the sequined hats on the days I don't walk to the office. I'm trying to walk to the office every day.
These men were not commuting together but sat near me. Each of them was dressed beautifully. Navy, head to toe, gorgeous sweaters, beautiful computer bags, amazing shoes and socks. I think the fellow across the aisle is my new stalking victim as I've seen him daily and he has extraordinary outerwear.
As I come out of my Lyrica fog it's nice to appreciate the details around me again.
