I get woken up at this ungodly hour by thunder and torrential rain
I get up to close all the windows and try to take a pic of the rain ... all you can see is the sky lightened up by lightning, though.
Go back to bed - this is my normal wake up time during the week. Too early!
Pick out some clothes.
Breakfast is porridge - I really like this stuff, okay?
Doesn't look too good in a photo but it tastes good. :-)
Put on my face ...
... and some scent.
This is as good as it gets - good morning!
Mineral water and a yogurt for work - even the yogurt comes in a World Cup design???
This was supposed to be a time check but you can't really read my watch - it's 6.45 a.m.
Good morning car!
Post some mail on my way to work.
Time check when I arrive at work ...
The building I work in.
I clock in.
We call this "the long corridor" - pretty appropriate, no? (Personally I think it looks like a prison or something!)
Up the stairs.
My desk is the one in the back - the tidy one! ;-)
It's a little bit warm in the office - this says 29° C (= 84°F)
Because my work time only starts at 7.30 a.m. I check LJ and my email first.
My view - it's a "bridge day" today (Thursday was a public holiday) and my colleagues all decided to work from home. Yay - I've got the office to myself - usually I share with 4 guys. Fun. Not!
Ugh - so many unread emails after just one day.
Work, work ...
That's much better!
Not pictured - lunch at 12 p.m.. But have a pic of my after lunch espresso.
The view out my window - nothing special. Though it can get pretty busy there. And sometimes these containers even topple over!
I leave quite early because it's Friday ... and nobody else is there!
Plus I need to go grocery shopping.
Come home and get the mail ...
... and unpack the groceries. Not a lot - the shelves were quite empty because ... bank holiday???
I start working on the photos I've taken so far.
Check that other social media site ...
... and Instagram as well.
Somebody's at the door - it's the UPS guy with a parcel that was supposed to be delivered Monday only! So yay!!!
What's in it?
Good timing - half of these belong to my cousin and we're going to the cinema that evening so I can hand them over right away.
"Dinner" - only some bread with cold cuts and cheese because I know there will be popcorn later on!
I water the plants on my balcony which didn't catch any of the rain in the night because they're under the roof. I like my striped petunias!
Saskia arrives to pick me up.
We're going to watch "Solo".
Like I said - there will be popcorn!
Get home shortly before 11 p.m. and catch today's episode of "NCIS: New Orleans"
Take off my face and take care of teeth etc as well.
My bed beckons!
