As for this week ... I've met the Zombie Apocalypse and its name is Jackie.
Returning to work after vacation is always a challenge for me. Various people have been in my office filling in for me. So, returning is always greeted with bizarre things done, my office stuff moved around and you name it. This past Monday I was also greeted with training a new manager in there while it's all discombobulated. Sigh.
Then I was informed that on Tuesday we would be receiving a visit from (afar) to certify us as a "University" location ... training any and all new management. I had to get the layout of my office up to their specs and make sure everything was perfect. I was there nearly 12 hours on Monday. Sigh.
Mind you, I had also been sick the first part of my vacation and was still feeling not quite up to par.
There was also yet another heat wave. I hate heat waves. With all the science and technology, you'd think that climate control could be an actuality. It's bad enough we don't have flying cars in every garage. Is climate control too much to ask? It could be the end of droughts ... and severe heat waves!
Then, of course, it was the first full week of my busy blogging season, too. I have to get back into the swing of that. When you blog Big Brother live feeds reports two or three times a day atop a really full time job, well ... it's not the easiest thing and sleep gets cast aside for a few months.
Between being the Walking Dead and the weather being a gazillion degrees with high humidity or raining, I really didn't feel inspired to take many photos. But I did take a few I like and want to share with you. Clicking on an image will open it on a new page, clicking again will make it larger. Just close out the new page to return back here to the blog.
I heard him before I saw him. This was early in the morning as I headed to the train, so the light wasn't really great. But there he (she?) was on East Front Street in Plainfield. Because I'm not really seeing the top of the head, I'm taking a guess that it's either a Hairy Woodpecker or a Red-Bellied Woodpecker.
Don't even expect me to know what kind of moth this is! Also on East Front Street.

|Higher than an elephant's eye|
The sunflowers are as high as an elephant's eye and look like they're climbing clear up to the sky! East Front Street, Plainfield.
|No flower like a sunflower!|
|Bunny butt in the 'hood|
I found this little guy on the front "yard" of my apartment building. When I got him to turn around, he thought "ZOMBIE" and hopped off away.
|Vincent the Silly|
So, is Vincent sharing my pain? No. He's just sprawling all over the place in typical Vincent fashion. He doesn't even know there have been heat waves because, on the really hot days, I leave the air conditioning on low for him. Can you say spoiled?
How was your week?
