Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 51: Picnic Lunch

The weather today was perfect - mid 70s, partly sunny, a bit breezy - the ideal Sacramento springtime climate.  We took advantage of this lovely day to have a picnic lunch on the grounds of the Capital for our DER (Development & External Relations) bi-weekly management meeting.  V, K, C, and I headed out of the office around 11:30am and found a dry and shaded spot on the lawn under a tree near the 13th Street cut-through of Capital Park. 

V had also brought Taboo, as we had decided that keeping things light and ensuring we have some fun team-building amongst our management team was equally as important as discussing any more formal business issues.  K and I teamed up against V and C, and we emerged victorious.  So fun!

These are the moments I need to remember when I'm having a not-so-great or blah day at work...
