Thomas Tallis

I do enjoy sitting on our couch in the evening and listening to some relaxing music while watching the birds fly in loops above the houses and church dome across the street. There usually seems to be bunches of birds around in the evenings. Today's listening is The Tallis Scholars Sing Palestrina, which I borrowed from a guy at work and have been enjoying for the past few days. I think it will be a good November-Winter album. It's chilly in our apartment and the tip of my nose is cold.

Had an inventory at work last night, and a relatively painless one at that. We were done at around 1am, early enough that Abbey and Dan P. and myself had a couple of beers after we were finished. A good time. Work is better when you hang out outside of work every now and again. I don't necessarily know if that's true across the board or if that just happens to be true for this particular job at this particular time.

It's been a long week. I'm looking forward to a day off, but it won't be arriving until Monday.

I straightened up our apartment when I got home from work and made our bed. I am slowly (finally?) discovering the pleasure of making your bed on a (at least semi) daily basis. It just feels good to get into bed at night and have all the sheets and blankets be cool and heavy and smooth and cover your entire body, instead of having them bunched and twisted and trying to figure out exactly how they're twisted so you can stretch and pull them the right way to at least get your ass and legs covered enough to be warm.

It's just about dark outside.
