Well, I was waiting to post again until I had some more information about my job search, but hasn’t really happened yet. Here’s where is stands at the moment. I have a job offer from company #3, and supposedly another one coming from company #2. I had told them that I had an offer I needed to respond to, and that if they were going to make me an offer I needed it by yesterday. They called at 4:57pm last night to tell me that they were still working on it, and could I hold on until today. So I should receive the second offer today. If I don’t, then they lost their opportunity, as I’ll be taking the offer from company #3. It’s the job I wanted more anyway. So by Thursday I’ll know where I’m going to work, and fill you all in on the particulars of the job.
The weather here has been pretty rainy since Saturday. I wish the sun would come back out, because my job for the week is to spread the 8 yds of mulch that was delivered yesterday. It’s not much fun to do in the rain. Ok, I’ll admit that it’s not much fun to do at all, but much worse when the dirt and mulch stick to you. I was completely filthy after working for 3 hrs yesterday, and I’m pretty sure I brought more of it inside than I left in my garden. It’s going to take me forever to finish this project, cause I’m putting in edging and landscape fabric as I go. But it will look much better when I’m done.
Just finished a batch of Chocolate Sorbet in the ice cream freezer. Yummy! Chris was in the mood to make ice cream last night, but we didn’t have the necessary ingredients on hand, so he settled for Sorbet. But he didn’t start it until 9 so there was no time to freeze it last night. So that meant Chocolate for breakfast for me, and I’m not complaining! For Christmas he got the Ultimate Ice Cream Book (which I recommend if you have an ice cream freezer), but we’ve only made sorbets out of it so far. That’s better for me since dairy doesn’t agree with me. I love ice cream and will eat it if it’s around, but I always regret it later. I’ve got no self control.
In other news, Chris decided that he wanted to improve his photography, so he’s taking an online class thru the local community college. Don’t know if it will help him or not since he doesn’t have to submit pictures and have them critiqued or anything. But we’ll see. If it works, then I’ll have better pictures to scrapbook, since he’s the primary photographer in the family.
And last but not least, I leave you with the latest layout I’ve done. I just loved this photo of my nephew hamming it up for the camera. Wish I hadn’t used the flash though (this is the reason Chris is the photo-taker of the family). Ok off to mulch while its not actively raining. Have a good day!
