I have been pretty busy. I started a new job on Monday. I haven't worked full time since before my 24 year old daughter was born so there was a bit of adjusting to do!
But I love it! I even love taking the 15 minute bus ride on days when I have to do that. I go over the bridge and the view of morning shining on the water is spectacular!
Today I get to drive my boyfriend's car as I dropped him off at work earlier and don't have to pick him up till 6. And, I am happy it is Friday.
On day 3, which was Monday I brought it a lasagna for my friend who helped me get the job. He lives by himself and doesn't often get a home cooked meal. A few months ago he told me that my lasagna is his favorite thing that I make.
On Tuesday (day 4) I saw a woman working at a desk a few cubicles over and realized that I had bought a necklace from her at an outdoor concert over the weekend! Isn't that a crazy coincidence? She makes jewelry out of beach stones and beach glass. I told her about a book that had a picture of a circle of stones with white lines in them that all lined up to form a circle. I took a picture of the cover of the book and brought the book in so she could take a look at it.
On Wednesday (day 5) I gathered up some acorns and a bluejay feather while I was walking in the morning and brought them home for my boyfriend's two little boys. They loved them as one of the acorns was huge!
On Thursday (day 6) I gathered another handful of acorns and this time I left them on a park bench as I walked by. I know that they were received with enthusiasm because the next time I circled around the squirrels were breakfasting on them a few steps away in the grassy part of the park.
Today is day 7. I think I am going to pick up a picture of my boyfriends boys and his nieces that I took while we were visiting them a few weeks ago. It is a great picture of all four kids playing in the sprinkler. I will mail it to his mother. She lives across the country and doesn't get to see her grandchildren very often. I can do that today after work.
I am having to get quite creative thinking of things to give away that don't cost any money. Wednesday I get my first paycheck!! I think I will buy something for my boyfriend but I don't know what it will be yet.
