Because of all the changes going on at work, this was, to say the least, a very strange week. It's so hard to say goodbye to the place that has been a second home and the people that have been a second family for the past three years. But, that being said, the week did end with some really good news that also gives me an excuse to go shopping for new clothes so yay to that.
I also managed to totally rock it out with my FitBit this week: almost every work day I hit over 10,000 steps and the exception to that was Wednesday when I was at the other campus and sitting for most of the day but even then I got in over 9,000. My plan of taking the long way as I move around the buildings definitely contributed to all of those steps and now that I know it is possible to get high number of steps even when sitting a lot of my day I know I don't have much in the way of excuses for not regularly getting in those 10K steps. I might start doing a post every Friday where I recount my steps from the past week. Will be interesting to keep track that way.
Not only that, I was able to, well, take advantage of the closing of the building by acquiring some shelving units, like this one.
I am the type of person who loves cooking, baking, and kitchen gadgets but doesn't have a kitchen the size to meet all of her demands so additional space is always beneficial and this unit is perfect for my needs.
It also gives me an opportunity to show off my favorite piece.
This casserole dish is from the Corningware Country Festival line and was given to my mom at her bridal shower 30+ years ago. Considering my desire to give my kitchen a vintage vibe, she decided I could make better use of it than her so she a few months ago she gave it to me.
Another shelving unit I saved from the trash also made its way home with me, this time in my office. It's amazing how a clean, organized personal work space can make a gal feel all productive and creative.
