Working

I will be working again starting tomorrow morning! I guess I was wrong in the last post, there is someone who wants to hire a person my age. I have aquired a position at a hardware store a few towns over. I used to be a customer service manager at our local hardware store. It had been my favorite job ever, and when I got laid off I was devastated. I was looking through some online ads (again) and saw this ad for the hardware store, so I emailed them. I got a call from them the next Monday (I sent it in on Friday). They asked me to come in so we could "get to know each other better". I went in a few hours later, and a half hour later I was an employee! I will send my previous hardware employer a thank you note, because he gave me a high recommendation. I am excited. I love working in hardware. I always kid, and say my Dad raised me in the garage...well, he and I used to putter out in the garage together, so I learned a lot about hardware and I am very comfortable with it. So I am going back to my element, that was something that was missing in my last job...yuck, laundry equipment...plus I can start working on my house again!

Needless to say, my posts will probably be shorter and fewer and farther between. As well as my stitching projects. Both have served me well, during my forced vacation. It's okay, with winter coming up and the nights dropping in on us earlier in the evening, I will again pick up the stitching to while away the evenings. During the summer months I tend to play with the dogs outside in the evenings!

I will be finishing the quilt I started for my neice as my sister informs me the baby shower is in just a few weeks...what happened to the time?!? I just have two sides to bind, and a lttle touch up on some of the quilting. I will get a picture of it posted. I have also made some more progress on my Earth Goddess. Pictures there too. I made a bid on a floor frame holder from ebay. I had been watching it and it was successfully bid on, I lost. Then for some reason it came back in, so I bid on it again! I hope I can get it this time, it'll make my stitching so much faster. Wish me luck!

Later all! Hope to see you soon!
