Elin Hilderbrand, A Summer Affair and a couple of others. I love my new Kindle
I finished up one job with people I loved working with after almost 2 years. Because of a referral and a recommendation I got an another job in a different group working in the same building. After a 10 minute interview with the new project manager I had a new job I just had to work out the details with the agency. This made our holiday much merrier because being unemployed around Christmas is never fun. As luck would have it I still get to work with the area I left. The new job is with a new agency but I was hired permanently so I have benefits through the agency. My interview process with this new agency was rather long but I passed the mustard with all 5 of the people I spoke to. We had a gap of a month before our new insurance kicked in and I am so grateful we didn't have any issues. It is all working out. My new job is intense and I am extremely busy but it is going well. There is a good group of seasoned people on the new project but the time lines are tight. I had my first official project feed back review this Friday and everyone was pleased with my performance. I knew I was doing well but it is still nice to hear and have your efforts acknowledged.
For my birthday in February we went for a visit to see our niece and her family in Vermont. We had a nice visit and I was given some great mugs from the Bennington Pottery in a light blue splatter design like these below. I love the 16oz size and when I sip my cup of tea I think of the great visit we had. I have the brownie baking pan also. Since my niece discovered that I am a fan of her local pottery it makes shopping for gifts a lot easier for her. They have these very cool heart bowls that I need to remember to hint that I like for the next holiday.
