A Long Work Week



Here it is Saturday and it is the 6th day in a row that I have worked.  It really wasn’t bad as it has been only a few hours each day.  Janice another workamper has been on vacation all week and since she worked more hours than usual before she left, I covered some of her hours.  Last week, I hardly worked at all, so this week I made up for it.  It all works out in the grand scheme of things.

Sheila hasn’t been feeling well all week, so one day she had me out picking up trash.  I was able to use the cart and Angel was able to go to work with me.  She loved it.  Her job was to scare away the squirrels and keep me company.  She did both very well.


                        One day I put up a few Christmas lights outside.

It seems that where I am parked is a magnet for all the leaves.  So I got my broom out to sweep them out of the way.  It took awhile to get this pile together, probably two feet deep.  I’m sure that I will need to do it again as there are plenty of leave still on the trees, but at least I can walk to the car and see where I’m going.

I’ve got two days off and I have no idea what I will be doing, other than church tomorrow,  most likely veg'ing and trying to stay warm when the COLD front comes through on Monday.  Only in Texas do you have Summer and Winter both in the same week!

I hope that you are all having a wonderful December.  Christmas and the New Year will be here soon.

Thanks for visiting

IMG_0323Hey Mom,  Do you have any Mistletoe?

Susan and Angel


  1. Angel, I wouldn't miss a chance at meeting you under the mistletoe. You are such a cutie. So are you liking this position better than the gate guard?

  2. Oh Yea! The work is better, but no $$$$$. I will see if I can do more GG in the Spring just to make some $. The savings are getting low.

  3. I am always uplifted by your positive attitude. No matter what's going on you just roll with it.

    1. Every day is a choice. Mine is that "It is what it is, deal with it" the most positive way that you can. Less stress, more happiness.

  4. Too bad about the $$$$. Just need to find a place where the work is great and the money is too.

  5. No wonder I haven't heard from you, you've been hard at work. Like your Christmas lights and love Angel's sweater. Make sure you have your heater's out for Sunday night. It's gonna be a cold one.

  6. Glad you are enjoying this job. Sounds like it's not too hard!
