I had every intention of posting much sooner after I arrived here at Sager Brown in south Louisiana. After all I would have plenty of time - I don't have to cook since I eat in the cafeteria and I just have a small apartment so there's not much to clean which means I have lots of time, right? Wrong! The job I'm doing here is a new one to me and there's lots to learn. My boss said I looked like a deer caught in the headlights. :) I don't think it was quite that bad but I surely was tired at the end of the day - so tired that at the end of the first day by 8:00 I was ready for bed!
I must admit I'm terribly confused, or discombobulated as my grandmother would have said. It's this crazy weather! I know some of you are having winter, like Denver who had like a million inches of snow this week, but down here it's full blown spring. Everything's blooming! Like these beautiful flowers I saw on my walk yesterday:
It was so warm last week that I had to run the air conditioner several days. I wasn't prepared for that - I brought sweatshirts and sweaters, not tee shirts! Thank goodness a cold front went through yesterday and the high today is supposed to be 60. Oops, it was 61 when I got up so I guess the weather guy missed it. :)
But never fear I didn't let the week pass without doing some sewing. I keep my embroidery on the couch beside me so I get a few stitches in when I sit down to watch television in the evenings.
And for those of you who like chocolate covered cherries - you really must try the new Cherry M&Ms. That just happens to be a bowl of them hiding back there on the back of the table. Yumm!
