Goings On

Lots and lots going on around here lately. I went on a job interview a week ago - A/R position with a construction company. I got called to come for a second interview this Thursday. Thank God for that! I'm just praying that this is the job that God wants for me. Otherwise I'll keep looking.

I've been busy making soap this week. I had Farmer's Market the last two Saturdays. The first Saturday was good but I doubled my sales this past Saturday. I was very happy with that. Even had a return customer that came looking for the booth! That was exciting.

So this week I'm replenishing stock. My online orders have been picking up too. God is blessing and providing in different ways. But I'm certainly busy trying to keep up with things. My kitchen counter and dining room table are full of soap making supplies and shipping supplies!

I will admit that it's been nice to be home. Although I tend to stay up late (it's almost 1 AM and my soap batch just got done in the oven) and then I get up fairly early. In the afternoon around 3 it's time for a nap. When I go back to work I wonder if my new employer will let me have a nap at 3 every day??? LOL! I'm enjoying spending time with Stephany and she likes having me home.

It was rainy and cool today but that's going to be the end of that for several days. It's supposed to be 92 on Friday. I like sunny weather as well as the next person but that's too hot for me. I've lived in the NW so long that anything over 80 and I'm complaining! Guess I better get the fans out of storage and clean them up. We'll be needing them I'm sure.

It's off to bed for me. More soap to make tomorrow, inventory to take, and then take Steph to group at church tomorrow evening. Take care and God bless!

I think what ever job you get you should specify that you need a nap around 3:00- I'm sure they'll be fine with that! :)

I agree with Paula! Those 3:00 yawns are awful and terribly annoying to other workers around you! If you get called for the third interview, just specify that as one of the conditions of being hired!!!!!

All kidding aside, I'm so glad things are "moving" in your life. Moving on is so important!!!! Soap sales, job interviews, etc. are all wonderful things.

I hate HOT, too, and it's starting here in Florida. I can't complain, as it has been a beautiful spring. But I get crabby when I sweat!

Hope you have a great day today!
