  • At this point it's all just wait and see on life you know? I do have good news to share though- 2 job interviews next week. I'll just have to wait and see god's plan for it.

          • Hey All! Amazing weekend and wanted to share some of it with you guys. Friday was sleep catch up (you'd think that'd be considered boring but damn I needed it.). Saturday I went to the market, built a BBQ, and dressed to the 9's and went out to the club for a friend's birthday. Dinner at the club first (you'd think it'd be gross but this is a schwanky upscale). It was grilled swordfish over asparagus and a crusty potato latke- garnished on top with a thin sliced sweet cucumber salad (sliced or I guessed "skinned" with a peeler, as in thin cuts of cucumber but no skin). Danced my ASS off! (well not off but it was 2 days ago and my ass is still sore!). To boot I was completely sober no booze because I'm finding a single drink seems to fire my insulin into hyper drive and I gain like no other... Sunday morning was church, a childhood buddy of mine comes every 2 weeks but didn't make it 2 weeks ago so it was awesome seeing him. What makes it better is that he asked me to be a part of his wedding party. Of course I said yes! Then Sunday night I was running audio for a prayer/communion service at the church. First time I had worked one of those- not sure if I was a fan because it's hard to get yourself into a communion mindset when you're thinking about the work that needs to be done. I guess someone has to do it though so if I can serve others it's a plus.

            2 job interviews this week- one that would take me far away and the other which I've written about countless times on here and is finally happening- the latter would keep me here in my backyard. Prayers needed!

            • So great to hear about your weekend! I think a few of us here are discovering that booze, even a small amount, has an unhappy effect of some kind. But as you have proved, a great time can be had without it. You are surely blessed with good friends and they, of course, are blessed with you. I will be praying for a good outcome to your job search!

                • you guys are awesome!

                  Quick update: Job interview #1 didn't happen today. We are regrouping and trying again tomorrow.

                  Job interview number 2 is now scheduled for wednesday.

                    • I hope so! My eyes are fully fixed on wednesday's interview more than today's. I want to stay close to home and honestly I think wednesday's job would provide a more stable target for the future. Granted today's interview would let me go do something fun and stupid. Both have their perks but at the end of the day I try to stay sensible with stuff you know?

                      If I get offered a job I want to stay honorable and offer my boss 2 weeks- but at the same time I honestly don't do any work here so the only reason why he would ask me for 2 more weeks is out of spite. What would you do? Offer it with the hope that he lets me go right away anyways or just walk out? Either way it doesn't make sense to be here for 2 more weeks except for maybe to finish my current book and possibly start the next one.

                      One last thing- made some sweet potato and beat puree yesterday (well it was more of a loose mash/chunky puree in the middle whatever). Absolutely delicious! Boiled beats and sweet potato. Once they were cooked I threw in raw shallots and garlic and let it sit for 2 mins. Drained the water, added 2 egg yolks, salt, pepper and a bit more garlic powder and I pulverized it with a wand blender. DELICIOUS! The egg yolks were because I had no cream but damn they did a good job of really filling out the texture. Made mouth happy

                      • FWIW, here is my advice - stay honorable and offer two weeks, but maybe phrase it so that it is clear you would like to go right away.

                        That sweet potato and beet thing sounds delish! Will put that on my list - which is long already, but I am a hungry girl!

                        • My advice is give your notice and work out your weeks if they want them. Doing the right thing is never a mistake.

                          Thinking of you, and hoping the right job comes to you soon.

                            • Hey all! Sorry I haven't posted in a few days. Been super busy with stuff (yes even at work. all of a sudden my boss hears about all of my job interview stuff and he decides to put me to work after a whole summer of reading and surfin the net ). Anyways long story short is that interviews went well. I've got round 2 for Just Crusin' next week and I was told by the manager at commuinitech that I will be hearing about scheduling round 2 next week for there as well. Good prospects going on.

                              I'll share more as more comes. I think I'll be emailing stratford chef and dropping soon. Even if I don't get one of these 2 other gigs I'm in no place to afford school

                              • Sad day for my city- our farmers market burned down this morning. We have one other but this one was actually Canada's largest year round farmers market. Massive flames and absolutely heartbreaking for our community. I'm trying to contact my regular vendors to make sure everyone is holding up ok.

                                St. Jacobs Farmers' Market building burns down near Waterloo, Ont. - Kitchener-Waterloo - CBC News

                                There is a slideshow half way down the article showing what it is and what it was. If you start to search for st. jacobs in google today you get an immediate hit for "st jacobs market fire" in google's suggestions
