I worked last week, for the first time since last Christmas. I was working with the crew decorating the NC Governor's Mansion (Mel Day, Dogwood Tree Florals) , as I have for the last 12-15 years. We didn't know who the governor would be until yesterday; but now we have a new one!
I am fortunate that my boss understands that I need to rest often. He had me make lots of bows, which I can do while sitting. Then when I felt rested, I got up and made fresh greenery arrangements. It is a perfect way for me to be able to work, and I can't tell you how much I enjoy it.
When we finished the Mansion, I volunteered to help decorate the club house here in our neighborhood. I went up there, but all I needed to do was "fluff" wreaths. After about 25 of those - and 2 hours - I left. I was the only volunteer, and I was not about to do it all by myself.
On Monday we got haircuts and pedicures. Today, I got my new hearing aids checked. The right one has a problem, so they ordered a replacement (it is under warranty) and I should have it by the end of the week. It rained and was chilly all day, and I was out in it too much. I also went to Sam's and Wal-Mart, then picked up lunch and went to the clubhouse to play Scrabble. After that, I went to my daughter's home to let her dog out, and then picked up Mexican food for dinner. I left home at 9:40 this morning and got back at 4:45 pm. Whew!!
Tomorrow night, I go to a party at the Governor's Mansion for the people who worked on decorating it, plus the docents for the mansion. I will take more photos then and post them later.
I hope you are busy and getting ready for the Holiday Season!!
