The Which Way Challenge, that Cee began, has been picked up by the Sonofthebeach69 blogger.  The beauty of it is that it’s free form. You can include images of doors, gates, roads, streets exits, signs, paths, waterways, you name it.

The Which Way Challenge, that Cee began, has been picked up by the Sonofthebeach69 blogger.  The beauty of it is that it’s very free form. You can include images of doors, gates, roads, streets exits, signs, paths, waterways, you name it.

I really miss Miniso and can’t wait for them to open more stores in the US.

Weekend Coffee Share

wordswag_15073188796611453091488Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that we had quite a bit of snow last night. Our newspaper is somewhere mixed in one of the little banks. I can’t recall ever having snow like this in November. Usually, we don’t even have the proverbial White Christmas.

I started a new part time job at a department store. After I quit, I’ll give you the name. After college I worked at a very well-run store. My sister worked there, a family friend and her two daughters, some of my sisters’ friends, two other family friends. So it was a very congenial setting from day one. Training was thorough and scheduling was fair With this new job, the store has rather unreal expectations – especially for part timers. I’ll leave it at that for now. I am wondering why we only have 4 people in my department and three of us are relatively new. The manager’s only been there for 3 weeks. Of the four of us who began training last Monday, three of us decided by lunch time Monday that we’d keep our eyes open for other jobs. I do find the customers gracious, so that’s a plus.

We had a lovely, though smaller Thanksgiving. My parents went out to my sister’s in Utah. My other sister stayed out East. I went to my brother and sister-in-law’s where I was treated to a feast and got a generous doggy bag.

Though the website had some issues, I managed to upload and submit 3 scripts and TV show ideas to the Upfront event for Act One, the Christian Screenwriters and Producers. This event allows aspiring screenwriters or producers to present their ideas to companies that have reviewed summaries. It’s so hard to get noticed so I’m so appreciative of this writing program that looks after its alumni so well. Act One is now taking applications for the 2019 program.

I’ve gotten about half my Christmas shopping done! One problem is that for two of my nephew’s I ordered something from eBay and its earliest delivery date is Dec. 24th. It’s coming from England. I may wrap a photo of the item since they aren’t toddler’s and can wait.

I got another job offer and will begin working at the Winnetka/Northfield Public Library December 17th. Alas, it’s just part time, but it’s a foot in the door. I could have started today, but I didn’t want the department store to be in the lurch. What was I thinking? They’re paying less and are quite unappreciative and inflexible.

Thanks to Eclectic Alli for hosting this Weekend Coffee Share.
