a crazy busy wonderful week.

Whew! What a week! I worked extra hours (and will again for the next two weeks) that was basically the equivalent of a full-time job. I worked my own job in the morning, took a lunch break and then covered the front desk in the afternoon. Which turned out to be a great experience since I applied for that job last week, interviewed for it on Thursday and was offered it Friday morning!

Of course I said YES as it is the job I've been working towards since I began pursuing a job at the school district five years ago...7 hours per day, 5 days a week and health benefits. Perfect. I start August 1st at the start of the new school year. I am beyond excited...and so blessed and grateful.

Working full-time took a toll on the ol' blog life, I must say. I'll have to figure out how to fit it all in come August. And I will...I have no doubt.

The weather is turning...or at least trying to. It was so windy last week...and cold. Then it warmed up yesterday...and is supposed to be in the high 80's next week. That's our weather for ya...slightly schizo. And as usual, I'm not ready for it...I never am. But summer comes regardless so I make the best of it with the garden.

Speaking of which...I got our five tomato plants in the ground last weekend. This weekend I'll get the peppers planted and maybe some bean seeds. (Do I have bean seeds? I better double check!) The seedlings are coming along nicely in the mini greenhouse. Although I think I may have lost the lettuce sprouts when I forgot to water on one of the hotter days...dangit.

So it's beautiful today...the windows are open, the fans are going, and I'm going to get outside in a bit to tidy up the chicken coop. Weekends sure become a lot more valuable when you work a good, long week.
