The Week in Pictures LXXXV

Random Friday Thoughts:

Summer hours continue; I'm working in the Long Island office, just a few minutes from home; there's a weekend of beautiful, cooler than normal temperatures ahead; and I have no softball game on Sunday, which means that I won't need to wake up at 7 a.m.

Those are all great things, right? So why do I feel so frustrated, and tired today?

All I know is that I'm heading to the gym right after work to get rid of some of this stress so that I can enjoy the weekend.

Anyway, let's move on to the WiP:
