Working NOT at home

Today I went on a field trip to an office!

OK, actually I worked there. And I wore one of my nice suits, so I could better blend in :)

I'm signed on as one of the consultants on a corridor study project Caleb's work is involved with and today was our internal kick-off meeting. That ran from 10-11:30 and involved all parties exchanging info and plans on moving forward. I didn't have much to do or say since my job is doing the public involvement portion (web site, flyers, postcards, etc.), but still, it wasn't too bad.

After that Caleb's work needed me to burn a copy of their current web site and a couple of project sites, so I did that.

Finally it was lunchtime and Caleb took me out to Zocalo, this little Mexican place on 10th St. that's been here as long as I've been in Atlanta, only I've never been there. Yummy burritos, even without the sour cream and cheese, which I asked them to leave off. Mmmm!

Back at the office, I got assigned the task of creating an "outreach postcard" for the first two public meetings of the project. First I had to look up the specs on the printer's site, then download and set up an Adobe Illustrator template. I haven't Illustrator in like 5 years so there was a bit of a learning curve, but over the course of a couple of hours, I managed to get the card laid out. Caleb and some folks have to proof it, but basically I think I did a good job.

Now I'm back home and probably have a lot of emails to catch up with. Also, more work for Caleb's company. Yay.
