March Twenty Seventh

IMG_0001

Well I know you have been waiting as long as I have… Do you see it… the Bird of Paradise has bloomed… I’ve been waiting since Halloween…

And Yes, I got the footwear lead position!!

I finally found out Friday but couldn’t say anything until the other candidates had been talked to… of course when I got to work today, the news had spread through the store and most know now… It’ll probably be announced at tomorrow’s store meeting… Probably won’t be actually in the position til next week, well we’ll have to see when…

I have short hours this week as it is the end of the month, so I got off at 10:30 this morning… took some pictures in the yard, read blogs, and cleaned out and organized my work clothes as soon I won’t be able to wear my jeans anymore and wanted to make sure I still had enough twill work pants to wear that still fit, although some were too big and had to go…

We’re watching Angel, almost done with season one…

The tulips are blooming…

It was raining most of the week… but now the rain is done and we are going to be having 70’s and 80’s this week… maybe rain again next weekend…

The wisteria are blooming…

Yesterday, Saturday, was a fast day… we actually slept in til 9:30… hubby made egg and ham on English muffins… we had a long talk with son2 about communication and using his cell phone to call us… well he does call us but only five minutes before he needs a ride… anyway he had an away game on Friday for tennis that was postponed from Thursday… he left school at 1pm and didn’t call home til 7:15pm to let us know that the game was over… of course I had text him twice but he didn’t check his phone… so by time he got back to his school to be picked up it was almost 8pm… So by time we were done with the cell phone talk and please use it, it was almost 1pm…

So then I started in on the printer as the ink and paper I ordered came in the mail… although I had to send hubby to the store to pick up one more ink cartridge as I forgot to order one… after an hour and a half of fighting with the printer and laptop I realized the printer was not set as the default so each time I hit print the other printer kept coming up… so set the printer as the default and look at it’s printing… so got all the taxes printed for mailing and keeping for records… going out in the mail tomorrow and they are done!

Of course by then it was 5pm so just heated up some leftovers for dinner… watched Angel… hubby dropped son2 off to hang with his friends… I put away the laundry… watched a bit of nothing on TV… and then son2 called promptly on time to be picked up…

Now we are going to watch The Simpsons… I already had the boys get in showers early and get their things ready for school… they have been pajama boys all weekend playing their video games… I just have to make son3’s lunch… and then we are going to bed early…

On this day, God wants you to know

... that you will feel better if you notice the sweetness of life. Notice the smiles of children, the songs of the birds, the caress of the sun's warmth. This sweetness is for you. Allow it to soothe your soul and bring a smile to your face.

On this day, God wants you to know

... that you cannot free yourself from a problem by shutting your eyes to it. To free yourself from a problem you have to acknowledge it and face it with your eyes and heart open.

On this day, God wants you to know

... that when you pursue your dreams, every second is an encounter with God. Following your dreams opens your heart allowing God to enter and fill you with bliss.

Happy Journaling…
