I’ve been promising my niece and cousins scrapbooks for a couple of Christmases now. It looks like this year, I may actually come thru. The albums are well on their way to being completed. Let’s just hope I can get them all done!!
I’ve planted some new in the garden. And no, I didn’t go crazy and add more veggies. I “planted” pinwheels. I saw a groundhog/hedgehog in my yard the other day and I read that the moment frightens them off. Wish me luck!
If you took a look the container that I planted my carrots in, you would swear that I just emptied the entire packet of seeds in. That means it’s time to thin them out. I’ve been thinning and giving the baby carrots to my friend for her turtle.
There’s a reason why I haven’t posted in awhile. I knew this day was coming and it finally arrived, LAYOFFS. My entire department is being displaced. Some this year, some next year, but everyone is gone.
I of course, was given a date of this year. I didn’t really stress. I just focused on 1) finding a new job 2) figuring out a way to get a month in Argentina, or some foreign country, out of this. The great thing about working for a big company is that gives decent severance packages. My motto
When life hands you lemons, find a way to make it to Rome and get yourself an Italian Ice.
Well a new job has come along. The offer was officially extended 2 days ago. So I won’t be able to escape to someplace far, I am taking a couple of days off to spend time with friends.
I took this picture last week. These are the herbs I planted in the containers that I made. Both the cilantro and basil started to flower so I had to pick those off. The scent those flowers left on my hands was amazing!
Pictured is dill, basil, cumin, oregano, rosemary, mint, mint (again) and basil (again)
