I am fortunate enough to work from home once a week. Don't get me wrong, I truly enjoy my colleagues and the college students I work with but this mid week reprieve really does allow me to catch up on emails, planning and other projects. Oh yeah and I get to wear a t-shirt and yoga pants. Although today the forecast is high 80's so I'm wearing a tank top and shorts. For 8 months of the year my home office pretty much consists of the chair by the window in the corner of my living room. But when the weather cooperates I move my home office outdoors. I truly believe I am far more productive in the outdoor office, with the sun warming my skin and the sweet smell of flowers.
