A window into the life of a professional geek, wife and mother (and nonni), stitcher/designer, bibliophile, old-school gamer, and whatever other roles she finds herself in.

At work today, the project lead for the program I'm working on took the team out to lunch at a local Mexican place. The food was good, if a bit slow to arrive because we had a large party. I had a chicken salad, which was very good. And healthy for me.

Unfortunately for me, our group was out on the patio of the restaurant. It was a beautiful day, but rather sunny. Combine one pale-skinned redhead with an hour of direct sun exposure, and it was more than just lunch getting cooked.

So now I have my first sunburn of the year. It's a very mild one, especially compared to some I've had, and I've already put some moisturizing lotion on it so it's really no big deal. One of the occupational hazards of living down here in the Sunshine State.

Right now, though, I'm battling the other side effect of sun exposure...drowsiness!
