Work is Interfering with my Golf Game
Is it golf or work that's the problem? I don't know but a working vacation is really kind of a misnomer. It worked real well in the beginning - that is the beginning when we'd recently arrived and the days stretched ahead unmapped, uncharted and seemingly never-ending. Then, in the beginning that is, I'd get up first thing in the morning, have a couple of hours to myself before a swim in the pool and starting the day.
Now the days are closing in - vacation is slipping away and talk of home is on the horizon. I'm not sure if I'm ready for that. The conversation filtering from outside is a discussion with the pool boy who obviously is a native of the warmer south. He wants to know if anyone works outside in the winter.
Roll that question back - I'm not sure if anyone stops working outside in the winter. That's what polar fleece was made for and other scientific technologies that swear your nether parts won't freeze off.
Too hot - too cold. There are bragging rights on how hot or how cold a place can get. Haven't you noticed that? People love to brag about their temperature extremes. Me, I'd rather just have a nice consistent high 20's Celsius or even a tad warmer and that would be perfect.
Perfect, that's here, right now - except for the prickles and brambles but that's another story. Hmmm - best get in my golf games, laps and that shortened work day while there's still time.
But, you know, I'm kind of looking forward to my schedule especially with two projects on the go and a release in the immediate future (more on that and all the fun coming up).
In the meantime - here's a view of Christmas down south.
Any weather getaways or a working vacation on your horizon?
