So here is how it goes. I took myself out to lunch on my day off and decided to try a new place, Spokes on Southern. I had no idea they have an outdoor patio with a pond and ducks and turtles just beyond and lo and behold today it’s cloudy and cool enough that I can sit outside! ! Bonus!

And then with a creative menu to boot! Selected their three cheese grilled cheese with basil, pear and turkey, on gluten free bun. As I was pondering their limited menu and yet all the customizing options, the inspiration came for updating our ordering website with a more limited initial selection and yet a myriad of customizing options! What do you think?

Well the ducks just walked up and they are quacking their approval!

Two Quick Ways to Feel Good at Work! July 24, 2013

Flowers on your desk; Office Flowers; Feel Good at WorkI recently came home from vacation, and was not excited about the stacks on my desk, left from before vacation, and that grew on their own while I was gone! My desk has been functional since we moved into our new location, and yet not an inspiring place to work.

So… yesterday I realized, ‘I don’t have any flowers on my desk’, like the proverbial cobbler whose kids have no shoes. Rectifying the situation, I picked out some pretty gladiolas that remind me of my Dad and Grandad.

It felt SO good to walk into my office, and to sit and work with flowers around!

So here are the two tips:

1. Treat yourself to flowers on your desk.

2. Treat your office to flowers in your break room. It will feel good to enjoy them yourself, and you will feel double good because you are sharing the joy with others!

Share your pictures of your flowers  with us!

Tulips have gotten a bad rap…. April 24, 2013

People give tulips a bad rap, that they don’t last long. Well, here are three vases: on the right are the ones we got in yesterday, notice the yellow ones leaning over. They were laying in a box and tried to pick up their little heads.

The ones in the middle are from last Monday. They were cut a bit shorter and are still perky.

The ones on the left are from two weeks ago. See how they are very open? They open like this as they mature and then drop their petals.

Thought you would like to know!
