OK, I admit I have a thing for trees. I think its because there just arent that many trees here in AZ. The trees we have are desert trees and some of them are very pretty, but they are not the huge trees you see lining the quaint streets in other parts of the country. The color of green is not the same either. Kind of a yellow green. One time, during summer break. My daughters were little girls then. We were talking about trees. I decided to mess with them a little bit. It was always so much fun. LOL But I got out lots of magazines and scissors. I told them to cut out all of the pretty trees they could find. Then I gave them a roll of scotch tape and told them we were going to tape them on the back fence so it would look like we had lots of really pretty trees in our yard! I still remember the way they looked at each other, like I had finally lost my mind. But we did have one beautiful tree. It was a Jacaranda tree. They bloom each May. May only! The flowers are trumpet shaped and the prettiest shade of purple. When May is over and the pretty purple flowers have fallen and covered the ground, its still such a pretty tree. It is a very full and nicely shaped tree with lacy leaves. They grow all over around here and are so pretty.
I have some great news too. After being laid off in September, I have gotten a great job. I will be working for Target in their corporate offices in their customer relations dept. I worked really hard for this job. Its perfect for my background and experience. I did my homework and spents hours on my resume. Its been amazing at how it has all fallen into place. It doesnt even start until the 17th and I get back from my trip to Cape Cod on the 15th. Its been perfect and I am looking forward to beginning a career with such a great company. I will still be creating for my website and I will also still be located in Tillies Attic. Actually I believe with the stress of unemployment not hanging over my head I will begin to have fun working on lots of new ideas. Its all very exciting and I am looking forward to the future and all it holds.
Have a nice week, I hope to be able to do a post from Cape Cod. Last year our laptops service was iffy there, so if not I will see ya all when I return!
