It’s been busy around here this week. I got trained on a new account yesterday. The nice thing was, we actually went on site for the training down to Saratoga. I so rarely leave the house for my job. Like once a year tops. There are just 2 of us on the new account. It’s nice that they think of me when they need someone. Once in a while I feel appreciated there LOL! All the new software got set up and we are ready to go tomorrow. That is like warp speed compared to how things usually go with my company, so hopefully that’s a good sign 😀 It will mean more work at the very least, which is great.
I am not sure what to do with the second job that I picked up. I only do that when my regular job is slow, which it has been. The secondary job has been picking up as well. It all comes at once, doesn’t it? We’ll just have to see what happens.
I’ve also got a soap order to make for one of my wholesale customers. She always gets in touch with me out of the blue, probably because I make time for her whenever she does. She just seems to need it when I start to get busy with other things. Or maybe it just seems that way. So yeah, it got busy round these parts!
More squirrel shenanigans going on. I don’t know if this is the same squirrel, but probably. He was back in the window again today:
I wanted to see how close I could get, so I moved slow and pressed my lens right up against the glass. No zoom, I was this close:
Beady eyes. At this point he started sort of chirping and almost growling. It was funny and that got Pixie all kinds of excited. Then I banged on the glass to scare him away. He’s kind of cute, but he’s not supposed to be eating this seed!
We finally got the wallpaper off the hallway and stairwell and got the walls all painted! Now just the window trim and baseboard need to get done. It takes a while doing it in dribs and drabs. Guess that is why people hire that stuff out 🙂
I am getting close to finishing the Jenny Lind trunk, too. I am so pleased with how it is looking! This is the fabric I am going to line it with:
I thought it was fun for what once was a traveling trunk. All that is left is putting on the handles and doing the lining.
We need to catch up on a couple shows. We still have a Downton Abbey episode and the new X-files to watch! Are you watching either of these?
