mish-mashed! That’s a great way to put it.
We have just had two days worth of in-depth training. Wow! So much information in such short time. All for the benefits of the people we work with – and great info for ourselves, too.
So, I’m toast. But, hey! The sun is shining – and we are having more and more possible sunlight hours each day. So that’s all good, right? Right.
And, the temps . . .? working their way up. We are still in freeze-thaw, freeze-thaw, and the lake at the end of the road was down quite a bit today, which means the frost in the ground had thawed enough for the water to break through. Yay!
We are at the muddy time of the year – some folks call it spring, but I’m not so sure I go that far. I grew up in Ohio – spring comes in March there – with green grass – and flowers!!!! And, days that are almost H.O.T!
We should be at that stage by late April maybe. Although, these 30-35 degree days are pretty darned nice, I’ll tell ya.
Saw motorcycles out today – all this week, actually. Yes, I’m jealous. A whole lot more melting on MY street needs to be done before I can get out of my driveway. Sadly, there has already been a motorcyclist’s death this year. Amazing! Youth, inexperience, and speed. The dreadful three. It would have only been worse if alcohol had been thrown into the mix. As it is, a 22 year old kid is gone and a family is mourning. So sad – and so unneccesary.
But, enough about that.
I will spend tomorrow at the Job Fair telling people about our agency. We don’t have any job openings currently. One closed today. There may be another soon, but for now, I can’t tell anyone of openings. So, I will sit at a table, smile, and make nice with those who pass by. I will share my knowledge of the agency and I will be a face on the solution to the problem we deal with on a daily basis.
There is a 4 hour training for our other life-business Saturday – and then, maybe I can rest. Hahahahahaha
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.
p.s. here's our girlie in motion.
Auntie Lessa tells more about HER day of taking the ladybug to soccer practice. At first I thought, well the little turkey! She did a lot more for auntie than she did for me. But I finished reading and realized that she was just her little princessy self with auntie just like she was with me. hahahahahaha?
Thursday Challenge – Energy
This photo was taken on the DC trip. We were waiting for our turn to go up into the Washington Monument. The wind was extremely brisk – estimated to be 90 mph with higher gusts according to their weatherman.
This is one of the chaperones of the 8th graders. Just as I snapped the shot, the wind dropped in intensity, but you can still see most of the flags standing at high attention.
The kids all held open their jackets and let the wind catch them like kites. Or they would jump straight up only to come down 2-3 feet behind where they started. They had a wonderful time.
