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.

An interesting turn of events

Shopping!

I had saved about $600 from my pay at H&R Block with which to get furniture.  I figured it might be enough to get me a dining room table and chairs, and hopefully a small dresser as well.  I asked my friend, Judy Boldt, a thrift shopper extraordinaire and the president of my Wisconsin fan club, to take me thrift shopping.  She has spent the last two days taking me to thrift stores from Sturgeon Bay to Sister Bay.
