Michelle - You are amazing! You've put up with so much at that job.
I admire food workers. It's such a transient field of work and it's hard to rely on people. I was a food worker back during my teen years and I loathed it, thus, I found another line of work. It's a tough job - I'm glad there are people out there like you, that enjoy it and are dependable!!
Jan - I'm sorry your Mom isn't doing well. Prayers for you both!
The weekend was good. I attended a wine & jelly making workshop on Saturday for Sand Plums. It rained buckets that afternoon, so it was a nice cool day.
I had energy yesterday, so I started cleaning and got lots done.
Around 3 pm my chihuahuas were raising cane looking out the front window. DH was mowing and I noticed a strange dog was following him around on the mower. I could tell he wasn't sure what it was going to do, it had just appeared out of the woods. It didn't look mean, it was a medium sized collie mix, so I walked outside and it came right up to me. It's a girl and she looks like a young dog, maybe 6 months old. She's covered in ticks and stickers.
So, I fed her and she was definitely thirsty. I've noticed twice in the past week someone dumped puppies off on one of our rural roads. It's so irritating - many of them end up getting hit, or they end up being killed by coyotes or other dogs.
Anyway, since she just appeared out of the woods and she's so friendly, I took that as a sign that she's probably meant to be with us. So I fed her and she was really thirsty. I told DH, if she still here in the next few days I'm going to make an appointment to get her shots and all at the Vets office and we'll keep her. She's a good dog, very sweet.
Later, while DH was mowing, I noticed a truck outside and didn't recognize the man talking to him. I soon found out it's our neighbor's Dad and he'd asked to come over and harvest sand plums. DH told him okay w/o even asking me!!!!
Needless to say I was pretty mad. After spending a whole day on Saturday learning how to make wine & jelly, I asked DH "Why do you think I took that workshop? I'm planning to use that fruit!!!"
I told him last night, he better let the man know I don't mind if he fills a plastic bag with some fruit - I don't mind sharing some - but if he comes over and raids my whole thicket, I'm going to be PO'd!!!
I think I got my point across, then he took me out to dinner!
I was not ready to come back to work this morning, but here I am anyway. Lots to do today, so I better get with it.
Have a great day, everyone!!
