Working in retail is a whole other business and it is actually fun to help customers find the perfect gift for someone. I have loved getting the store ready and having it look festive for Christmas shoppers. I have actually enjoyed shopping for Christmas this year too. I think the trick is to get out early and not go on weekends. Since I work on weekends, this is perfect for me. I do need to get out and see some artists now though. Enough with the mall!
I'm now selling my soaps at the store. I only brought in 30 bars to see how it would go and I sold four bars the first day, so I think it will be a hit. They are decadent, with skin nourishing ingredients and a fragrance of sweet orange. The soap lathers incredibly well and smells really nice. People seem to be liking them, I have a basket of free samples that are getting a great response.
After my hydroponic lettuce harvest, I put in 18 arugula plants and I have been snipping larger leaves to bring home. My coworkers are also snipping, and the plants continue to grow and put out new leaves. It is by far the best tasting arugula I have ever had and every leaf is blemish free. I am completely hooked on the idea of growing greens indoors all year round!
That's about it, just working, counting the days until Wesley comes home and thinking of things we can do in the short time she is here. I do wish she would miss the east coast enough to come back, but she has her own life to live. I just stay busy so I don't have to think about it!
