Good Saturday morning! Thank you for joining me. Come on in from the rain for some hot or cold drinks!
Mother Nature is showering us with spring storms which has somewhat dampened my weekend but it’s fortunate because I happen to have no hiking plans or any plans this weekend. Actually, I was planning on snuggle beneath a blanket with a good book this weekend.
It better not rain next weekend though, I’ve signed up for a church activity which I have been looking forward for weeks. More will be revealed later. 😉
So how’s your week?
If we were having drinks, I would tell you my garden is somewhat blooming. My cherry and plum trees are still alive and my dahlias are blooming leaves, flowers will hopefully follow in the summer. My tomatoes and peppers, on the other hand, haven’t been doing well.
These seedlings have been behaving like vampires. They don’t like to be in the sun. I left them out in the sun all day on Monday while I was at work and when I got home, I found them wilted which ultimately forced me to transfer the seedlings to my raised garden beds. Now, I just hope they are alive and growing since I can’t really tell.
If we were having drinks, I would tell you I applied for a full-time job and will have an interview next week. Wish me luck!
I would tell you my boss from my current part-time job and I chatted earlier this week. He asked me how many hours the temp agency told me about this job. I told him 25 hours but it turned out to be only 15 hours. I couldn’t believe it.
I also discovered the temp agency has been charging the company I work for 1.75 times the amount they’re paying me. Basically, they are paying me $20/hour but charging the company $35 which makes me feel sad for my boss and for working so many hours. I had seen invoices from temp agencies before when I worked for the hay company and never seen a company charge so much more than what the employee gets.
I don’t want to lose this job but now, I just have to hope my boss will hire me on as part of the company because I am not a fan of being a part of the temp agency. I’m not sure they can be trusted to tell me the right information.
Finally, if we were having drinks, I would tell you I had a blast on my hiking trip last weekend. It was most likely the best hike I have ever been on and I enjoyed conversing with others. Talking helps me to practice my English conversational skills because conversing too much in Chinese tend to make my English accent thicker while I’m trying to reduce my accent.
If we were having drinks, I would show you some of the pictures from my hiking trip last weekend while thanking you for joining me today and I hope to be back next weekend.
