ATC's and library assistant applications...

Well, I didn't get the library job. (Thought I'd cut to the chase.) I'm okay with that. I think I'll be happier with myself in the long run if I stick it out at the deli for another year and a half. Then I can find something different to do and have a clear conscience. I wasn't feeling good about jumping ship when the deli was so short-handed. Anyway, it was a good experience just giving it a try. The interview was interesting. I now have a better idea about what the job entails. Maybe someday I'll give it another try, or maybe I'll try for something totally different.

On to other things. Here are the last two of my ATC's for the Medieval Animal swap. They will be off to England, probably on Monday. Hard to get hold of an international stamp between now and then.

Hmmm...I hadn't realized the similarities between these two cards until I put them side-by-side! :)
And now for some glorious God art.


One of the locals. I'm their version of TV.
It's getting toward bedtime. Another day of frying chicken tomorrow (this will be the 5th since Saturday). I got a different shift today, but since the chef went on vacation this week and the chicken fryer had to fill in for him, I've been filling in for the chicken fryer. Not that I don't fry chicken quite a bit anyway, but...

I'm thinking that God is looking out for me in all of this job stuff. My house finally got listed yesterday, and that could be enough to deal with right now. I already see some problems with the listing and who knows what will happen in the next year. Changes enough, perhaps, without a job change as well.

Cheerio for now, all. Shalom.

  1. Well, you do have lots on your plate. Literally. Exciting about listing your house. Will be fun to see what the Lord has in store, won't it? An adventure, perhaps?!? Sounds like you're up for it.

  2. I especially like the dragon ATC. I wonder how long it will take until your place sells. A house 2 doors down from us went on sale on the weekend and sold in TWO DAYS.

    1. One never knows about houses, does one? God is at the helm! :)

  3. Hang in there, Lisa. Yes, not getting that job is God's provision. He might be saving you from something.
    I hope the sale of your house goes smoothly.
    I love the header. The Jolly Postman, right?

    1. I'm in agreement with you about the job thing, Pom. ;)
      The header was something I copied from Each Peach Pear Plum...I think! :)

  4. Dear lisa, I agree with Pom Pom! God has some better very good idea for you, and soon you will be free from "old" ideas and dreams.

    Lovely drawings! Nice dancing "horses" - (the stug and the dragon ).

    Wonderful sun-clouds!

    Blessings for you and your loves!

    1. I like the part about being free from old ideas and dreams! I'm ready to get out of my "box" and see what God's ideas and dreams are for me. :)

  5. Fried chicken is SO good, and not everybody does it well -- you must have the gift! God is watching out for you. He knows the path ahead of you. You are provided for. And it's wise to consider the levels of stress ahead, before you sign on for more.
