Thank you, dear blogging friends for your kinds words, thoughts and prayers. It's humbling and heart-warming to know how much you care.
A week ago, I made an appointment that meant I would have to take today off from work. How fortuitous--I really didn't feel like going to work today anyway.
It's sunny, but cold this morning. My birdfeeders are filled and at 11:00, my friend Steph Anderson, our local weekend meteorologist and co-author at the KTTC weather blog is coming out to our house for a look at my birds and backyard habitat. I'm looking forward to her visit and hopefully will have her story and videos to share with all of you in a few days or so. There's nothing like birds and nature to take a person's mind off the unhappy current events (and maybe Steph's story will provide one of those "windows of opportunity" that opens to a new career!)
I've already applied for another job, and will also be looking at the opportunities being offered by the census bureau, and if I don't hear anything from them, there's always the unemployment option which will provide me loads of time to spend in the backyard this spring and summer for birding, gardening, and improving the backyard habitat.
