Fun day at work

I lunched with a colleague today. He's been helping me navigate the way the stories and pictures flow through their system. Before now, I was simply sending stuff in and hoping it got to the right person.
The colleague has been patient and very helpful. The least I could do was buy him lunch.

He's been in the business. When I asked him the question I ask most people at some point, is: "What do you want to do when you grow up?"

He smiled and said, "This." Meaning, working in media writing stories about politics and the inner workings of government. He's good at it.

I told him about something I'd written on my New Year's resolutions for years which was, to take pictures and tells stories. I told him I'd worked for years at a job to make a living. Now I'm doing work that I love.

Yesterday, a guy that does the county's chamber of commerce Facebook page asked if I'd be interested in letting them interview me. I said sure. So after lunch, I spent an hour or so talking and posing for pictures. I'll share the post once it goes live.

On the way home, I swung by the lake that's not far from here. I've posted similar pictures in the past, but the sky was beautiful after a morning rain. So I took a picture.


  1. Hooray for people who love what they do. They make a big difference.
    Love that shimmering water.

  2. Thats what I want to do when I grow up “work for fun”. Sounds like you had a rather exciting day and hope your interview went well, cant wait to see the post and poses!

  3. You can't go wrong with getting paid for doing something you love to do. Great photo.
    Hugs, Julia

  4. Doing what you love to do is never work. However navigating new computer systems come close to it. Having a good teacher makes a lot of difference though. Looking at that lake would never get tiresome. It is a beautiful place.

  5. You are becoming quite a celebrity. Congratulations.

    Can't wait to read your interview!!

  7. I love the photo! Will be keeping an eye out for your interview too.

    Although I enjoy what I do, it's not the job of my dreams. But I'm working on it.
