There are no uninteresting things,
there are only uninterested people.
Gilbert Keith Chesterton
Some of you right now are sitting behind glass in an office comfortably tucked in a chair and staring out while thoughts race through your mind; we all do that no matter where our office chairs may be located. It is once again Random 5 Friday with Nancy and I thought I would show you my view and share some of those thoughts from my office chair.
1- Oh how I love my office, I at one time worked at a fiberglass boat factory as a carpenters helper and all I remember about the whole experience was that the windows were all frosted and I could not see outside. Even though I loved the people I worked with I could not get over that fact not to mention the smell which I must admit was a lingering unpleasant experience.
2- While working as a cashier at fast food job behind the counter for hours and hours, years and years I could always see out the window and watch the heavy traffic and people pass by and thought that was not bad but longed to be out in the weather not trapped inside.
3- When My Hero and I bought this farm and we jumped into big time farming I eventually quit my job. I loved the always being outside part, it was at that time the fall and as we know that is the nicest of weather if you live in a four season climate. The work was hard but the freedom was worth it. The winter having its many challenges still had me outside. It is truly the season I find the most beautiful. I have adapted to the changing seasons over the years.
4- This year for some reason the weather has felt much colder to me. I guess these old bones have forgotten what a real Canadian winter is all about. I sit in my office chair (tractor seat) and do my work taking care of everything I can from this office chair until I have to climb down those steps and go hike through the bush and check the cows that are always happy to see me. I love that they need me as much as I need them. Have you ever seen cows smile?
5- Once I am outside in the weather I sometimes forget where I parked my office with that office chair after spending hours hiking through the deep snow while following the deer through the cedar trees but always smiling and enjoying every minute of this life I have been so lucky to have. Back in the warmth of my office I laugh out loud while maneuvering my office chair through those three foot snow drifts. Oh I love my job.
How about you, do you laugh out loud while sitting in your office chair?
