don't be deceived ....

... by this pretty flower ... nothing is at it appears!

it was one of those days .... lately, i have been waking up before my alarm, as it's pretty light out before 7am. i'm pretty good about getting up, usually. if it's light. if i know i won't fall back asleep, i just pop out of bed. it amazes me how bright it is now compared to when daylight savings changed. it was hopeless then. i could not get out of bed when it was still darkish at 7am!

but, that doesn't really have much to do with this. unless, you think, "gosh, you got up at 6:50am, surely you could get to work on time!".

i could, if the buses displayed the correct route in their electronic signs !!! i missed two buses today because 1) i am a rookie and 2) the buses had their signs wrong.

what i did not realize is that only one tta bus comes down my street. and, if i am ever in doubt, i should stop the bus and ask. so, now i know. and i was 30min late to work.

but, i should not have to do that. i did my part. i got up, i got up early, did my "stuff". got to the bus stop on time ... and the first two buses screwed up. i did my part, they need to do their part !

(sigh) ... i finished knitting a sock on today's ride(s). and on the way home, i was a 'big girl' and "mastered the system" !

i got off tta at a requested stop, walked X blocks to the shopping center with the grocery store, did my shopping, and then proceeded to wait at the stop for the city bus that could take me as close to home .....

i do not mind riding the bus at all.

it's always an experience ... interesting folks, questions about my socks, and the weather is a constant consideration .....

i understand that at times it may not be on schedule, or conducive to my schedule. but, it's a good thing overall.

tomorrow will be better .....

regarding flower ... i often buy bunches of spider mums at my local grocery store. they're inexpensive, and stay in bloom for 10 to 14 days.and, they're pretty !
