View From My Office

I have moved to a new office building and my new office now has a window view.  I see a busy intersection and the back/side of a 7-11.  Today is my first full day in the new office and right away I saw something interesting right away.  There was a lady going for a morning jog and she was at the crosswalk waiting for the light to change.  To entertain herself during the wait, she was dancing around and then doing handstands.  I kept watching her thinking "if she falls, she is going to get run over".  Luckily, that did not happen, and she jogged on her way when the light changed.  I am curious to see what other interesting things my new view brings.

Hydroponic Lettuce

I have recently discovered hydroponic lettuce.  I really like the taste better than any other lettuce we have tried.  My favorite is the hydroponic trio.  

Have any of you tried this lettuce?

Not Quite Snow

This is what I saw when I woke up this morning.  Everyone was calling it snow, but it is really just accumulated sleet.

The movie Hachi was playing during the holidays, so I recorded it to watch later.  I read about it on IMDB and it brought me to tears.  The movie is about a professor who finds a lost puppy at a train station and the connection they have. 

Since I know how it ends, I couldn't watch it all at once.  I watched half of it so far and will watch the rest soon.  Animal stories always get to me.

Rat Terrier's Allowed at Westminster

The Rat Terrier is finally being acknowledged as a breed at the Westminster show.  It is about time.  I think the Rat Terrier's are incredibly smart and have beautiful lines.  They can prance with the best of them, be rough and tumble, or be loving little lap dogs.  They are so versatile.  Yes, I am a bit biased because I have one in my household (and previously had another), but I hope that others finally see the fantastic traits of this breed.

Hubby bought me a Fitbit Flex several days ago.  I had been looking in to them for a while, but held off because of the cost.  I absolutely love my Fitbit.  It was super easy to set up and is very comfortable to wear.  I downloaded the app for my phone and  I find myself checking it regularly to make sure how close I am hitting my daily goal.  

I also have my weight loss goal listed and that constant reminder helps me to make better food choices.
