Sit Down, Take Your Shoes Off

The photo above is a picture of the porch area of The Elms, a hotel in Excelsior Springs that we visited for a most relaxing pleasant Sunday outing last week. I'd had such a bad week last week that we just went for a relaxing drive in the cool weather last Sunday. We stopped at the hotel, walked the grounds and had a really serene afternoon. I look back fondly at that overcast, cool day, especially now that we're cook'n again in the mid-90s. Did I ever mention I hate summer? Well, definitely. So my mind wanders back to that cool day and heaves a sigh of relief just thinking about it.

Today I went to a Job Fair for sales people. It was a good chance to meet face-to-face with several prospective employers. It's hard to tell, of course, with such brief interviews, but I think there were a couple of different companies where I really hit it off well with the managers who were interviewing. Hopefully there will be some opportunities that will develop into something. I already got a call-back from one place and I have two interviews scheduled for this week. That makes me happy. I want to start working again soon. So it's been a good day. Thank you Lord. (Thank you, thank you). I could use more confidence-building days like today.

Also, I've made it down to the heel flap on the socks. The holes don't show up much in mine, because it's Cacade Fixation. But I like the effect. Here's my sock in

I'm feeling much better today, folks. Thanks for the kind words of encouragement. Woody Allen has left the building, at least for today.

I love the Elms! Have you ever had the spa services? Totally worth the trip, time, and money. Hubs and I were there for a romantic weekend and we loved it.

Mary and I were chatting about you before class last week. It's my opinion that you're way too lively for your prior job. Rather like making a lively parrot or sweet little parakeet sit on a perch and be still. You deserve to work in a place that doesn't clip your wings. People want to interview you? Good. It renews my faith in business peoples' intelligence. ;)

So glad you had such a good day. Laura is deserve to have a cheerful positive work place that lets you spread you wings. You have such a bright shiny personallity that you need to be able to capitalize on.

I have had times between contracts that I have been really down but you know when I gave up stressing about it and give it up to someone higher up that me, that is when things start to happen. Usually it is something better than I was looking for.

I think you are on the right track. See you tomorrow night.
