Finally Friday

Cleo and I hanging out;

Okay, you can't see me of course....

She and I are not quite sure how long we have to just

'hang out'

before I get some type of job

but I thought this picture to be fun and amusing.

Picture from this morning;

Cleo my hen.

She is so funny.

She will sometimes, esp. when she wants attention,

sit on the back of my chair,

like you see here,

when I am sitting on it.

Up close and wanting personal attention,

that's my Cleo Cat.

Sigh.
Dreaming of another day.
Found out today that I did not get the Ottawa job.
Mixed feelings about this; a bit glum;
but also quiet now.
Glum is such a great word though, you know?
So the anxiety department in my life has been a bit disorderly.
So any of you who think I radiate peace all the time
think again...
I'm just a human and broken as anyone.
*
But in the goodness department,
since the anxiety department has been wanting to run loose and ignore
one of my loved ones got a full time job today!
Can't tell you how happy I am for this.
*
And apparently I am getting a gift card for some inconvenience
regarding a purchase I made a while ago in the States
that ended up being impossible to pay online.
I am hoping to buy a scarf and hat with it
(I already picked it out online, terrible, aren't I?!)
*
I have two job applications to finish this weekend
since they are due this weekend
and Monday I hope go to see about in-between work while I wait.
*
Am really feeling like I did not get either job;
I know officially today I did not get the one here;
the fact that the other one did not get back to me yet
even though I emailed
tells me that I probably did not get that one either.
*
I may be getting a cold again.
*
November is certainly here;
crazy weather and uncertain days.
Well,
Christ never promised us that it would be easy,
just that He would be with us in it.
*
Thank you again so much for your kindness, prayers and comments.
It means so much to me right now.
I thank God for each of you.
*
And Cleo assures me that she adores the attention,
even though she plays shy...
*
Okay.
Back to the cover letter writing...
Thanks again everyone.

Maybe I can see you...in a photo on the shelf behind Cleo and that yellow (I love that velvety color...like a picture of a sweater I just put on my blog) chair?
I'm so happy it's Friday!

elizabeth, I just want you to know that I'm thinking of you and praying for you, in light of the news about the Ottawa job. I know God has amazing things in store for you--the right thing will come along and when it does you'll be amazed at the way God works. :)

I'm sorry you didn't get the job but I am glad you have someone so wonderful to hang out with.

"Glum" is a great word. So sorry you didn't get the Ottawa job.

Oohhh... sorry about the job. I like to think it just means God has something far better waiting for you.

At least they told you about the Ottawa job. It's always trying to be left hanging -- and so unnecessary when a simple e-mail is easy these days.

Sometimes temp jobs turn out to be the door to the best thing, so I hear...God only knows, so we keep you hold you up to Him.

Thanks everyone....

Donna - right now I would just like a job. My money will not hold out forever and ever...

M - yep; Cleo is one of the best...

G-J - yeah, will be exploring different options, including temp work...
