Near sunset at Spencer Lake, Ohio, the clouds reflected strongly in the dark, still waters, like cream swirling in coffee. Except for the calls of a few insects and birds, all was quiet.
We had a lazy day Saturday and did a little exploring. We checked out the annual Lakewood Art Festival, held on a closed street of that Cleveland suburb. Then we set out for Huntington Beach Park in nearby Bay Village, Ohio. Along the way we stopped at a tiny lakefront park to admire and photograph the amazing colors we saw in Lake Erie. It was good to have a lazy day if for no other reason than to get ready for the next day's hard work.
Sunday I worked for 15 hours straight removing old and installing new computers. It was a lot of work but much easier to do with the place closed! Even at this writing I'm still working on the project, though now changing out a few computers at a time instead of 20 systems in one session. Yeah, 15 hours is a long work day but the last time I did a leased computer swap-out at work I worked for 24 hours straight –yes, 24 hours awake and working– and had no sleep for a longer time than that! I got a bit smarter over the ensuing years and figured some ways to make the job easier this time. I hope to take some time off soon to recover but we still have a meeting room out of commission, in use now as my warehouse and workroom, and I have to empty it this week.
