Happy Leap Day!
My oldest sister turned 10 today, the same age as her oldest daughter! I was always a bit jealous that she was able to celebrate her birthday twice in a non-leap year, both on February 28th and March 1st. Since I cannot be there to join in the festivities, I'll simply have to drink some wine by myself. Happy birthday, Gina!

Housekeeping Staff Lockers
Week 9 - In the workplace
The housekeepers that work in my building are the sweetest, most helpful people. The ladies on my floor always have a smile on their face and always greet you whenever you walk by. It is a bit disheartening that they only get a locker for their possessions during the day. There isn't a room available for them to hangout during their breaks, or eat their lunch and chat. Nonetheless, they are the first to ask you how you are doing and to wish you a wonderful day/evening/weekend.

"There are no words to express the feelings that induce a sailor to offer fervent prayers when he sees this mark of sympathy expressed by his fellow men. Suddenly he sees that he is no longer alone in the midst of the ocean waves: he sees that people are caring for him with paternal solicitude."
-Lt. Lavrentiy Alekseyevich Zagoskin, on sighting the light house at Sitka, Alaska, in 1839
