Happy Thursday

Well, thank goodness for short weeks!!
Today was the start of a new month at work, so the slate gets wiped clean once more and we move forward.
There is much to smile about this week....
I have my job interview on Monday..actually four of them and I am pretty excited about them.  They are with people that I know pretty well and I have been doing my homework.  anyone who wants to share ideas about the best way to mentor/coach employees I am all ears.
I had drinks with my boss tonight...so tequila combined with the opportunity to catch up with a woman that I respect and consider  a very good friend...pretty good night.
My homework is done for tonight...always a plus
Hubby is working tonight and while that shouldn't make me smile, the silence that is resonating through my house right  now is pretty awesome....and I will be happy when he gets home..
I am completely addicted to the game angry birds....seriously a great way to mindless kill several hours
My house is almost back in order from the weekend...always a good thing..
I talked to my "little" brother for almost an hour tonight...that kind of thing is absolutely priceless...we don't get to talk very often and I love it when I catch him in the mood to talk..
Most exciting of all....I am going to Florida with my girlfriend in August....plane tickets are on hold...vacation time is approved...I really can't wait...
Good smiles all around this week....I am looking forward to the weekend...no real plans yet, but the weather is supposed to be gorgeous....so a long meandering drive up the coast may be on tap...i am in the mood for my first lobster roll of the season!!
I hope that all of you are doing well and that you are snuggled in for the night, hopefully wearing your comfy clothes and enjoying a cocktail or two....love, hugs and lots of smile sent to you all tonight on the tail of a shooting star....


  1. You said "lobster roll" - they are SO on my bucket list. If I read about them one more time & not get one...BAH! Must have. Sigh.

    Sounds like a lovely vacation you have set up - I wish you happy trails. :)

  2. Glad you've had a lovely week. It is 9.11am here in Scotland. The sun is shining and it looks like it's going to be a glorious day, what a great start to the weekend.

  3. Lovely happy post today, Col - just right for this lovely weather we finally have here in England at the moment! Hope you have a lovely relaxing weekend, and good luck for the interviews next week. Fingers crossed it all works out just the way you want it to!!

  4. Great news hearing you had a good week I have had a bloody busy one and hope next week is not as busy. Good luck with the interviews next week

  5. Sounds like you are doing well and that always makes me smile! My management career always involved mentoring and coaching. I always enjoyed that aspect of my jobs. Email me if you want to chat about it. Hugs!!

  6. sounds like a great time! what is a lobster roll? hoping for success in your interviews!

  7. Lets see, mentoring or coaching an employee. What do you do if the employee's evelator doesn't go to the top floor? I have 4 of them. So glad you had a great week and good luck on the interviews. Linda got home so to speak about 10 AM this morning to her mothers house since our house registers about 94 degrees with a bad A/C compressor. Praise God for a place to go with A/C. Have a great weekend.
