Office Cooking 101

I am very excited! After 11 or so years of working in our current office, we are moving (Lord willing) by the end of next week into a building with a newly renovated office! Today as freight train after freight train passed and blasted their horn, I said to myself, “One more week of this!” I will not miss them. They seem to know when I will be on the phone and it probably happened 8 times today. I feel sorry for the person on the other end of the line. Our phones are extra sensitive to noise and it sounds like the train is coming through the phone.

So what do freight trains have to do with office cooking. Nothing, really. Except that in the new office we will have a full kitchen whereas right now there is a very small refrigerator, a microwave and a coffee pot. And a George Foreman grill that I’ve been enjoying the last while.

I’ve discovered that I can have delicious roasted hot dogs in a matter of minutes.

Or cheese quesadillas.

Or paninis.

And while I will be delighted to move into a bigger office and have a full kitchen complete with hot water, I will miss some aspects of our current office. The location where we’re at is ideal (minus the train noise). I’m a few blocks from the post office, and there is a fair amount of traffic that I can watch.

Our new office will be by a 4-lane highway and back a little further from the road. I will have 5 minutes to work instead of 10 so I will have time to run home over lunch break if I want. And I’ll be about 3 minutes from a park that has a walking track so I shall have no excuse to not get some excercise on my lunch break, especially once the weather stays cool. Anybody wanna come walk with me?

And in case you’re wondering, that new header photo ain’t from around here. I was gone this past week. And I took a few pictures.  “Few” being slightly under-exaggerated. What’s the opposite of hyperbole?

  1. Oh wooooow. That picture must be from your Colorado trip! With living in south Georgia, I’ve almost forgotten what mountains look like! 🙂 You make me think I’ve got a lot to look forward to!

    I was wondering how soon you’ll be moving into the new office. Stan has greatly improved the look of that old place. 🙂 And a full kitchen! That is wonderful!! I’ll have to come by and see you before we leave!

  2. You know, I’m afraid I’d be delighted to work in an office without a full kitchen just because it would give me the perfect excuse never to cook. 😀 Gorgeous picture!!! Can’t wait to see more of them someday! Because I know you won’t leave us deprived. 😉

  3. @lifeisadance – We plan to move this weekend although there will be much work left to be done but stop in if you have time. 🙂

    @smilesbymiles – The guys building the cabinets and desks said they made sure to get the kitchen in first. I know they’re hoping from some food from it. The guy in charge of building them was in charge of building the cabinets for our house and he’s already hinting for cookies. 🙂

I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to leave a comment.
