Then on Wednesday I had to take Mama to see her Opthalmologist for the 2 week follow up after her cataract surgeries. She is doing very well, and we don't go back until after Thanksgiving, when they will give her a new permanent prescription for reading glasses.
And then on Thursday I started my newest endeavor . . . a new part time job! I am now employed by Georgia Mountain Candles and More in a small town about 15 minutes or so from here. I will not have any regular hours, only work when the owner, Tina, needs me to fill in for her. She also has a part time 'whenever they need her' job, so when she fills in on her other job, I'll fill in for her at the store. The candles there are so remarkable! Tina makes all the candles herself, and the scents are soooooooo good! If you aren't familiar with soy based candles, here are a few good things about them:
- They are made from American grown soy beans
- They burn cooler, and slower, so they last much longer
- The wax will wash out of clothing, tablecloths, etc. with soap and water, and my favorite part . . .
- The wax makes an incredible moisturizer!!! Seriously, just take 2-4 drops of the melted wax and rub it into your hands and they will stay soft and smooth for a long time, and two good points about using them as a moisturizer are that it doesn't wash out immediately, so it is great if you are in water a lot, and it is not parrafin based, so it doesn't build up on your skin.
While things were quiet I sat in the doorway with my crocheting basket, making cotton dish cloths. I have several of them up for sale in my Etsy shop, and will have even more on there soon. If you are interested, you can click on my Etsy shop window to the right, or the link above.
So, as you can see, things have been busy, but a good busy! I am so thankful for my new opportunities and my friends, online and here at home. I am blessed, and I wish you many blessings as well, Becky
