Another weekend gone by, and another work week coming up. It’s been quite busy with the job lately, trying to drum up business before the end of the year for the company. Planning a trip to Phoenix, Arizona (last time I was there it was 126 degrees F/ 52 degrees C!) followed by Las Vegas. People always ask me if I get to have fun while I travel, and I’d be lying if I said I was working 100% of the time.

With the bit of spare time late at night these days, I often juggle between sleep and/or picture-taking.

The above picture was taken at the Palmer House Hotel in Chicago, when I was visiting for a trade show a few weeks back. Too bad I wasn’t able to take a picture of the silver jellybean Cloud Gate sculpture this time… oh well – maybe next year.
