– The weather has been great the last couple of days. We got much needed rain and everything is really green. Time for a ride!
I love riding in the mornings before it gets hot and the traffic builds up later in the day. For those counting, I am over 650 miles on the year. Right on target to finish with 2000 miles. Yay!
– Have you seen the new Zone bars? There are 2 new flavors and this is one of them:
It’s pretty good, although I would like it a little spicier 😀
– This is some of my birthday bounty. Gift cards for garden centers. Think people know me or what?
My work did a server reboot after lunch, which meant down time – so I figured I would spend one of my gift cards. Garden Time is only about a mile and a half from the house, so I popped over there. They finally had their specialty coneflowers in stock. I have been waiting! I loved the Milkshake, so I got one of those. This is a picture taken of my garden last year. I didn’t snag any of this coneflower before we sold the house (does it ever feel good to say that) because they were too small for me to divide.
I was quite happy to see that one available. I also got one called Supreme Cantaloupe. Here is a stock picture of that:
It’s hard to wait for these to grow and bloom!
– I have been mulling over different options for a job. As many of you know, mine can be a bit stressful at times, more from the actual company than the work. Problem is that I will not get paid what I get paid here if I work for another company and it just would not be worth it. I am toying with the idea of getting certified in coding and billing since those are jobs that are going to be around and growing for a long time. Not to mention there is the big switch from ICD9 to ICD10 on October 1st and there will be a lot of turnover. BTW – My advice to all US peeps is get all your medical appointments done before 10/01/15 and then don’t go for a while until all that change shakes out. 😉
I get a tuition discount if I go through my previous school that I did the MT training for, so that is an option. Flipping a house would be good, too, but I am tired of real estate at the moment…
There’s no hurry though, unless my company goes belly up, which actually wouldn’t be too surprising. For now the status quo is a good thing. I don’t mind surfing along for a while and enjoying our new calm.
