This week started with a date to report for Jury Duty....
I thought that I would report to the courthouse, and probably spend the better part of the day sitting, reading, getting busywork done, and perhaps being called for consideration for one trial. I mean, I was only a standby juror--maybe I wouldn't even have to go at all??
But no, I was needed and by 10:20am on Monday was told that I had been selected for a two day trial. Wow!
What a unique experience to be on a jury...and I am so glad I was able to serve. It was such a small inconvenience, and I am very proud to have been able to be of help. I only wish I hadn't felt so conspicuous in the lobby of the courthouse, because I would have loved to share with you all of these cool pictures I framed in my mind's eye of that lovely building-- I was just too self-conscious there waiting in the security line to get out my iPhone and snap them.
Now it is Wednesday. My son is home sick with a high fever. Poor guy. It is his second day out of school--yesterday his father had to take the day off to be with him--and I am sitting here in my office, getting some work done, but having to rethink and reschedule everything on my calendar for the next few days, since nothing this week has gone as I had expected!
The bobble head corgi pictured above was a gift from my son this past Christmas, and it is happily wagging its head (it doesn't have a tail to wag, afterall!) as I type this...and has drawn my attention to the view outside my office window. I have been meaning to hang my bird feeder out there...perhaps today is the day!
But who knows?? ....
