Hi Folks ~ About 24 hours ago I was contacted by a lady from church wanting to know if I was still looking for a job. I told her yes and she asked if I could work full-time? I said I could, but it has been 8 years since I’ve done so. She said it is a secretarial position, answering the phone, typing and filing charts for a home health care co.
I emailed her this morning asking the size of the office and what the dress code was. The office is small, so I won’t have to deal with a ‘lot’ of people, and the dress is casual. Yay, I was hoping I wouldn’t have to wear a uniform made out of polyester.
The office is a block from the intra-coastal waterway, and I’m wondering if there is a view. That would be nice.
She gave the one owner my name and number this morning, the other owner is out of town and they will both want to meet me and I should hear from them on Monday.
Needless to say, I am nervous. Last night I could hardly get to sleep for thinking of a gazillion and one things that this job would have an impact on in my life. No more coming and going or doing as I please. That’s one biggy. When will I do any shopping, etc. How will I take care of my gardens? But the other biggy is making an income. I don’t know how much yet and I kept thinking is the $ worth the hours away from home and my life? The plus is the money will definitely be a big help to me at this time. If this job is meant for me, it will happen. I will just go with the flow. I am praying about it and others are too. God will give me the strength I need to do it if I get the position. The ride to and from work is easy, about 10 miles or 20 mintues away.
Today was hot and humid once again, with a big clear, blue sky and a brightly shining sun. We did finally get several afternoons of rain recently and that was a blessing. I did lose one of my favorite rose bushes though, ‘Kathleen’. I’d had her for around 20 years and our latest dry conditions did her in. But, I had taken a cutting from her several weeks back, wish I’d taken more, but I didn’t. The cutting has new growth coming from the stem. Yippe doo! I hope it continues to grow well for me. It will take a couple of years or more before she’ll give me blooms, so I’ll just watch her grow. I loved this simple rose and her scent was so delicate and sweet.
Tomorrow I’ll be joining others from my church family as we have another ‘paint party’. The last one was at my house in March, when 20 people showed up to paint the exterior of ‘Plum Cottage’. Tomorrow we’ll be painting interior spaces for a couple who just bought a home.
So, that’s it from s.e. FL. Keep me in your prayers that I’ll stay calm. If the job is meant for me, it will be.
Have a great weekend ~ FlowerLady
