This morning’s view from my office window didn’t augur well for an undisturbed day’s work

I’ve had a busy few weeks, and this week kept piling it on. I had a magazine to finalize and publish, and a newsletter to write and send out. The last thing I needed was distractions. But the distractions, in the form of lots of noise and constant movement in my peripheral vision has been the order of business all week.

I thought that we’d seen the worst of it yesterday when they switched us over to the new water main. Alas, that was not the case as I saw when I looked out of my office window at 7 am this morning. Today was even busier — with Concrete deliveries and another crew working down the street replacing a lamp post that had been knocked down at some point yesterday. By the time I’d put the finishing touches to editing the newsletter they’d stopped work for the day. Tomorrow I’m working away on-site with a customer. Maybe they’ll get finished while I’m gone.

I had hoped to get out hiking today (record temperatures 70°F), or at least a trip to the range. But by the time I’d cleared a couple of phone calls I decided it was too late.
