Wetlands, Wine, and Wednesdays

Wednesdays are a weird but wonderful day for us.  Because of the cost of driving to work, my DH works from home most Wednesdays.  It doesn't seem like it would add up to much, but considering he has to take a long toll-road to work, it really does.  I don't care about the reason, though.  I just enjoy having him home an extra day a week, even if he is working.  :)

The not so wonderful part of Wednesdays is that DH also has TWO weekly evening teleconference calls, one at 8:30 and one at 9:30, lasting a woeful hour each.  This fact does have a whopping silver lining, however:  instead of getting off at 6:30 and getting home at 8:00 or later, he stops working about 5:30 and we have a few wonderful hours before he has to go "back to work."  It gives us a chance to do all kinds of wonderful things that we wouldn't otherwise get to do on weekdays, especially in the winter, when it's dark by the time he gets home the other four days of the week.

What kinds of wonderful things, you ask.  Well, this afternoon we took Lance to the dog park, after which we walked a couple of blocks to the small wetlands behind our house to take our 365 Project photos before coming home to have dinner with a glass of wine. 

Perfectly wonderful.
