My hyacinths have come up outside.
I planted a few in my front flower bed several years ago.
I so look forward to them coming up each spring.
But I think perhaps for next spring I need to plant some in a container.
Aren't they delightful in that blue pan?
Oh...I wish I'd planted some hyacinth bulbs in a big outdoor planter to come up this spring!
perhaps next year
So this week I've just been working every day at my new career.
I must say...this job so far is much easier than past jobs I've had.
My co-workers are SUPER nice!
Not that they weren't at other places but everyone is very lighthearted at this new job
and that's important to me.
I don't take anything too seriously.
I work hard and try to execute everything perfectly...but life is too short to be serious all day.
I have to say...my co-workers are fun and I've found many things to laugh about
with customers too.
And...I'm doing very well so far.
I promise I'll have photos soon of my favorite things in the store.
I had one older lady customer this week that came in and bought a house full
of furniture for her brand new home.
Her son was paying for it all.
Honestly she didn't seem that excited about it till I suggested adding aqua as an
accent color to all the brown she was picking out.
It was then she came to life and we had great fun picking out lamps, vases, pillows and other
accessories in that color.
Of course the son didn't get it. They'd come for furniture and he didn't know why
she was so giddy when I started helping her pick out accessories.
But she was....and she left thanking me and saying she was going to have so much fun
getting more things in that color to add all over the house.
That was good.
I'll try to be a better blogger next week.
Oh....my Mom is going on vacation and bringing her dogs up.
I'll have seven weenies here next week!
Last night I had a customer and we started talking dogs.
They were dog crazy like me....they had four dogs too but...
Their dogs were a 180 lb Bull Mastiff
a 110 lb Bull Mastiff
a 90 lb American Bull Dog
and a 138 lb English Bull Dog
Plus they fostered puppies too!
They said they only slept with the English Bull Dog because the others were such bed hogs.
Can you imagine?
She said all stayed inside except for the really big one because he preferred to be out a lot of the time.
Obviously, they are better behaved than my weenies.
