Playing hooky from work legally

This past Friday afternoon, the temperatures were in the 70s … and it was a typical day in late February.  On that day, I was able to leave my workplace early … legally.  Let me explain why I did that.

According to my schedule, I was only supposed to work from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. on February 24th, which was last Friday.  I usually work from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on either a Monday or a Friday, but this past Friday, I was only scheduled to work until 1 p.m.  The timing could not have been more perfect, in this case.  I was able to use the extra hour in a pretty interesting way that afternoon.

That was the reason why I was able to leave my workplace early legally.

Will I be able to do that again in the future?  Maybe.

My new emoji pillow

As many of you know, I went to the Mardi Gras dance at my high school on Friday night.  They had a lot of wonderful prizes on the tables there … and, while I was there, I picked up a rather interesting prize.  That prize was a yellow emoji pillow.

My new emoji pillow is a “loving” emoji.  The eyes look like hearts … and the mouth is open here.  I plan on using it many times in the future, but I don’t really know how I’m gonna use it just yet.

Anyway, I’d like to show you my new emoji pillow now.

This is my new emoji pillow. It’s, obviously, a “loving” emoji. The mouth is open … and the eyes resemble hearts. I got this pillow at the Mardi Gras dance back on February 24, 2017.

I was able to put my new emoji pillow to use on February 26, 2017. I don’t normally take pictures like this one, but I just wanted to show you how much I like my new emoji pillow.

I took four more pictures of some clouds recently!

While I was taking my evening walk on Thursday, I saw some very nice-looking clouds in the skies above both Cuddy and National Hill.

I took four pictures of those clouds while I was walking on Thursday evening.  I’d like to show them to you now.

My foam mattress has officially left our home

img_20170220_122508
On February 20, 2017, I said good-bye to my Thera-Pedic mattress for the final hours. I had been sleeping on it nearly every night for several years. I will miss this mattress a lot.

It is now official.  My old foam mattress is now gone.  It’s no longer at our house.  It left our house for the final time this morning.  I will miss this mattress for a long time … and I may be talking about it again in a blog post later this year.

Switching mattresses with ease

Now, two days ago, I was able to switch mattresses … and, in a way, I did that with ease.  On Monday morning, I said good-bye to my old foam mattress … and, a few hours later, I said hello to my new spring mattress.  I like my new mattress a lot … and, hopefully, I can keep it for eight more years or so.

Now, in this blog post, I’m gonna show you both my old mattress and my new mattress.  I had talked about the mattresses in a two-part blog post earlier this week … and now, I’d like to include both of those mattresses in one single blog post.

First, let me show you my old foam mattress.

I had owned this foam mattress from Thera-Pedic for a few years.  I will miss it a lot … and I will say good-bye to it completely in just a matter of days.

Now, I’d like to show you my new mattress.

img_20170220_172300
Here’s my new mattress. It’s a spring mattress … and I really like it a lot.

I have had this mattress for only two days now … and I really like it a lot.  It’s very comfortable, to say the least.

Now, as I say hello to my new mattress, I will soon be saying good-bye to my old mattress.  In a way, I have been able to switch mattresses with ease.

Joseph is finally getting a new mattress (Part 2)

Now, yesterday, in the first part of this two-part blog post, I talked about my foam mattress, which left my house yesterday morning for the last time ever.  I had owned the mattress for several years … and the mattress was from Thera-Pedic.  There were a lot of stains on the mattress, so I decided to get rid of it forever.

Yesterday afternoon, I received a new mattress … and, today, in the second part of this blog post, I would like to talk about that mattress.

I was able to use it last night … and I really liked it.  It’s actually a spring mattress, but I hardly felt the springs, which are in the mattress.  I slept fairly well on it … and I didn’t want to leave my mattress this morning, but I had to do just that.

I’d like to show you my new mattress now.  Now, as you can plainly see here, it’s not too much different from my old foam mattress here, but there is a new mattress in my bedroom.

Joseph is finally getting a new mattress (Part 1)

This morning, I said good-bye to my old Thera-Pedic mattress for the final time.  I had used it nearly every night since I purchased it in the late 2000s.  I did say that I would buy myself a new mattress in 2017 … and guess what?  I did just that earlier today.

For the past few weeks, I had been saving up enough money to buy myself a brand-new mattress … and it came to my house this afternoon.  I will show you my new mattress in the second part of this two-part blog post, which will be written tomorrow.

Today, in the first part of this two-part blog post, I’d like to show you the mattress that I had owned for the past several years.

Now, I’d like to show you the spot that my Thera-Pedic mattress once stood in.  My new mattress now stands in that spot … and, again, I will show it to you in the second part of this two-part blog post tomorrow.

For several years, my Thera-Pedic mattress was in this spot in my bedroom. My new mattress is now in this same spot!

 

Taking a photo in the dark

Now, a few years ago, whenever I got myself some new glasses, I was able to take a photo of myself wearing them … in the dark.

I don’t usually take selfies in the dark, but, this morning, I wanted to do just that.  It wasn’t completely dark whenever I took my selfie.  Some light came from my television set at that time; however, it was mostly dark in my computer room whenever I took my selfie.

I’d like to show it to you now.  I hope you like it as much as I do.
