You never know what you'll find in the weird wide web these days. I was just trolling around in my Wingtip Etsy stats this morning, to see how people are finding my site and all that good stuff, and I found a link to my shop in someone else's blog. This person was writing restaurant reviews, and apparently I waited on their table...heehee, this makes my day! I will continue to build the spiderweb by linking back to their blog. Plus you can read about the food and drink at my working-for-travel-funds job.
Speaking of my pub job, it's going well. I've stopped having stressful waitressing nightmares, and am settling in to rather enjoying the change of pace a few nights per week. I like being friendly to people and being a little anonymous and getting my tables to laugh. I appreciate the exercise it gives my short-term memory and the zen-like focus of being 100% in the moment. And I love going home and not having to think one little bit about the job until next time I go in...when I am once again 100% there. Remember folks, tip your servers generously!
Otherwise, it's early September and the skies are already grey. Yesterday (Labor Day) was a much-needed rest from my labors...I took the time to cook a lot (GF blueberry muffins, red pepper chipotle hummus, and potato-leek soup), finish a book, overdose on the mind candy of some Jeeves and Wooster episodes, slouch around in pj's, and listen to the big rain and be thankful I didn't have to go outside in it. Today I am beginning to think about the approaching Christmas season, will be mucking about with some website content, and planning the paintings for my 2012 calendar.
