Learning experiences

Yesterday (Monday), I had my interview with Karen at Tea Thyme.  They had their Grand Opening last Saturday for the tea room and it was also open on Sunday.  Over the weekend, Karen and Lynn realized they will need more help, so they are giving me more hours.  As a result, I will be working twenty-two hours at Tea Thyme and about sixteen hours at Seaquist.  It’s a nice blend of jobs.

God’s bounteous gifts
