Today, I really wish I wasn't at work... Somehow knowing that this week is a short week, is making it seem particularly punishing. Knowing that in just a few days I will be on my way to Arkansas to spend my very first Christmas at the PBF's family home (can you believe we've been together 4 1/2 years and we've never spent Christmas together with his family?) is making each minute spent on the 27th floor feel like an hour.
So instead of working today, I'm sitting at my desk staring at my ecosphere. What is an ecosphere you ask? It's a self contained environment. My ecosphere has two crustaceans, some algae, and a small piece of coral. All it needs is moderate light, and it grows and functions all on it's own.
As silly as it sounds I love watching my little crustaceans swim around on my desk. I love how beautiful this small piece of nature is.
I'm always brought to a place of awe and wonder as I think about how perfectly each of these things works together to create a self-contained little environment.
