This'll be REALLY short: I allowed myself two snooze alarms this morning. :)
I had a meeting last night with a graphic design client who now wants a website! Whoo-hoo! And, he and his partner (Mama & Papa Pea's carpenter, B) are really fun to work with AND they invited me to dinner: red wine; a thick veggie soup with wild turkey and topped with melted swiss, and homemade tomato basil bread. And, a HUGE strawberry cream cheese pie for dessert!
I was a coooold drive home, though: it's still well below zero, and I didn't get to Swamp River Ridge until after 10:30 . . . and well past my bedtime. I haven't even looked at the thermometer yet this morning, but a friend living about 90 minutes southeast of me just posted on Facebook that it was -28 when her man went off to work at 4:30 - less than two hours ago. It's not that cold here, but, after a point, cold is just cold. Still, I LOVE winter, and I think my folks were a little amused yesterday when I walked into the house to drop off the dogs, cheery over the weather AND another blue-sky day! I can only hope that Mother Nature will bless me with another sunny day tomorrow, a day off, so I can take advantage of the free energy. The LP company thinks I'm almost out of gas again, so I'm living very low-energy (also again) . . . hoping I can squeak by without running out until they deliver on, I hope, Tuesday.
And, with that, I gotta git. I hope it will be a quick day at work: I'm working on organizing my departments now . . . currently trying to consolidate (I have a HUGE selection of gift bags in the "party" area, but they were in three different spots including stashed in the upstairs dungeon - you can't sell what customers can't see!) and clean and newly arrange. I wish there was a way for me to show you Before and After shots, but me standing there taking picture might be a little . . . boastful (to my new employers & fellow employees) . . . if not obvious! Still, I'm proud of the progress and changes I'm making in my big corner of the large store.
