The sun beginning to set over the mountain

It was one of those days: an incredibly difficult and challenging day at work today. Something in the water or the effect of the full moon made every one cranky, I mean the people I was helping and a few around me were just difficult to deal with. The tension in the office was noticeable as many agreed the managers were being fussy. I worked a 9 hour shift which made it even the more difficult considering I had been working only 6 hours since returning from bed rest and medical leave. To calm myself I decided to chat on Travbuddy during my lunch break and the interface between my next shift. Outside, the wind howled as if to caution the earth, yet noisy like a barking dog whose wrath will never be encountered. Time moved slower and I did wish for once I was somewhere else other than in the office. Leaving the office was not option as it was a discouraging 104 degrees Fahrenheit outside and the humidity was at almost 10 percent.

I braved the next shift watching the time like I had never done before: my clients did not make it any easier. My colleagues joked about the effect of the moon "I think it is the full moon, everyone is bitchy, even the men" she said. We laughed it off and resumed work for the afternoon shift, by 5:00 p.m. I was ready to run out the door.

I left the office at a quarter past 5:00 p.m. heading home for a snack. It was hot in the car and my AC took a while to cool me down (which was literally half way through my drive home). It was 104 degrees outside and my car was more like 110 degrees, it took a little while longer for the AC in my apartment to cool down too because I forgot to leave it running when I left in the morning. I picked up my hiking bag, threw in a couple of bottles of Gatorade and water, camera and toast bread and headed to Mt. Lemmon. The moon will be full tonight and I want to watch it from atop the mountain . . . time away from the city noise and heat, higher grounds sounded like a great idea (thanks to my brain), lol!
