More Celebrating

Hello Friends,
I made it to the weekend. Yahoo! After a visit from HR on Thursday saying when benefits are ending and that we should call this number to find out about cobra coverage, to meeting with the Director of Store Ops for the company being contracted to run the site and working until 10pm at the other job I made it to Saturday.
Thank you for all the good wishes. I hope to have an offer on Monday so I will know who my employer will be on 12/1.
Today was the Christmas open house at Lone Star Mercantile in Fuquay-Varina. I picked Myra up and we headed down the road to check it out. Susan met up with us there.
The Xmas displays were wonderful. I picked up a couple of small patterns that were on my list.
After that we went to lunch at the same place Myra and I visited last time.



I had some yummy spinach pie this time.
Myra and Susan brought me some birthday treats.



Look at this amazing book from Susan. We are both local history enthusiasts and have been to a lecture on Southern Family Graveyards. I have been to the cemetery were Daniel Boone's parents are buried near where we live. I am really looking forward to spending time with this book.
Thank you Susan!



Myra totally spoiled me too. Look at all these wonderful treats. It was just like Christmas! In the bag of treats was also a spiced cider Chapstick. I love seasonal flavors.



This was the other wonderful thing she gifted me with. She stitched and put together this wonderful pendant for me. Won't it look fabulous against a black turtleneck? Thank you Myra for your generosity and your friendship.
So what a great day. I did not really sleep well last night and I am mentally exhausted.
Thank you for all the good thoughts, please keep them coming, hopefully I can totally relax Monday.
