Today was a weirdly busy and frustrating day of unhandled exception errors, constant phone calls and computers backing up terabytes of data from failed RAID arrays. Data Robotics really needs to get their act together with their Drobo devices, but that is another story. In order to get anything done I had my door closed for most of the day and then around 1:00pm, I could not take the constant phone calls and knocking on the door and skipped out to work from home.
Fortunately, I was able to meet my friend Trent for some street tacos across the street from the Sugarhouse/Sprague library. This taco stand makes some of the best carne asada burritos in the valley while the one on 2nd South and State makes a great pollo mole burrito. We sat on the lawn outside the library, enjoyed the sun, talked and watched people walking past for a short while before getting back to the house to bury my head in work for the next few hours in lovely silence.
Just as H got home, she suggested we take a walk in the fading light as it was an absolutely beautiful evening and the weather was supposed to change tonight. Sometimes you gotta say yes to things like that and I am glad for it. The temperature was just right, the valley air was absolutely clear and they sky was broken by herringbone clouds. I’ll pay for it working late into the evening here, but it was totally worth it.
