I'm lucky enough to live very close to work and many days, I just drive home at lunchtime, eat lunch and then drive back to work.

Today, I went home for lunch because I wanted to pack my gymbag and take some pictures of my finished Christmas Tea and the nice gifties that arrived in the mail.

So I went home...ate lunch...packed my gymbag...checked email and blogs...watched some Crossing Jordan and stitched a few stitches...and came back to work.

I'm sitting here remembering that I didn't take any photos! So welcome to another photo-less post. Shoot!

Hmmmm....and I just checked my UPS tracking for my Jill Rensel package and it says they left it at the front door despite clear instructions to have my apartment manager sign for it so he could put it in my apartment. So...slightly panicking! OMG...I am dashing home after work to make sure it's safe! Screw ellipticalling!!

It's funny how my previous post generated some funny and not so funny stories. Beth mentioned kids in her comment and I realized I didn't even touch on the single mom that lives below me TWO floors down. She has two kids...one full-time daughter and a half-time son. When the son is visiting with his mom, I can hear the yelling and insane running back and forth two stories up. I have no idea what the running is about but with hardwood floors and high ceilings...the racket travels! Apparently, sister and brother don't get along very well.

Maybe Thursday, I can share photos...it's the next time I can head home for lunch and take daytime photos. I'll try not to subject you to craptastic nighttime shots.

Hope everyone is having a good week and keeping warm. I am freezing my buns off here in SF but I guess I shouldn't complain...all we get is chill and rain. Some saw snow nearby and that's a rarity. I have never seen snow in SF my 34 years. The first thing to happen when I get home...besides hugging my Jill Rensel Package and tearing it open...is turning on the heaters and putting the kettle on. Brrr!!!

Until next time...

Oh I hope your Jill Rensel package is safe! It's cold here too -- much colder than where you are, I bet. :D We might have snow tonight. Nice that you can go home for lunch sometimes. :D

Oh I thought you were going to say " I got to work and realized I had forgot my car" I hope your package arrived safely and you saty warm. I am loving this chilly weather, my DH on the other hand is a big freeze baby HaHaHa

Take Care maybe after the holidays are over we can get together for lunch?

I don't think I could live in an apartment now - I remember only too well the noise of people living above and below!

Keep warm and safe with plenty of stitching!

Hope your Jill Rensel package arrived safe and sound! Can't wait to see pictures :-).

I can't wait to see your package from Jill. I'd be in a real state if I knew that it was sitting outside the door. And it's cold here too - 50 mile an hour winds, rain, snow, burrrrrrrrr!

I live close to work too, and usually come home for lunch. Or, snow shoveling. LOL

Hope your package arrived safely.

I hope that the package was there when you got home! Although the snow is gone here in Houston :D I too feel the chill and want to run and turn up the heat.

I can't wait to see your finished Christmas Tea (I LOVE that piece!!) and your newly Rensel-ed piece too. How nice to go home for lunch.
