First Job

Earlier this week I had a conversation with some folks about first jobs. Mine was working for a needlepoint company who my Mom designed and painted for. There were 6 or 8 women who hand painted designs on needlepoint canvas to be sold in boutiques and at trunk shows. My job was to cut the large, heavy rolls of canvas down to size. I was asked if that job was as lousy as it sounded. On the contrary I really liked it! I was able to work from home in front of the TV. I made my own hours and I was only 14 earning some scratch, nothing wrong with that!
I think my Mom really liked her job as well because she ended up going into business for herself with her own designs. She was such an incredible artist.
I continued to cut her canvas and even got to trace the designs from the paper to the canvas for her. Beats babysitting any day! But that’s just me 🙂

Melinda sent me a text on Friday to let me know it was National Pina Colada day!  Shoot, I could have taken the day off to celebrate.  A little heads up next time please!

Friday is the day that I go to “Just Results” and step on the scale.  Aside from getting to visit with Lori and Sue the appointment is really nothing that I look forward to with glee.  This week having been predominately sedentary I was pretty apprehensive about stepping on that scale.  How in the world I managed to lose half a pound is beyond me, but hey, it’s the right direction so I’ll take it! YAY!


Jenn held her second annual BBQ/Firepit/Sing-a-long on Saturday.  I exaggerate about the singing, although we did sing “Happy Birthday” to Dana!

Pinterest is my friend!

As always it was a blast!

True friends are the ones who will sit around a firepit with you when it is 85 degrees!
