What’s up Wednesday

What’s up Wednesday

Two days ago local schools were delayed for 3 hours due to the threat of freezing rain in the early morning hours. Of course there was no freezing rain but hey, we live in North Carolina. ūüôā ¬†Today however, it is in the mid 60’s and rainy. ¬†Last night the weather so nice and mild we slept with the windows open, in January!

What is going on with the weather lately? ¬†One day you can¬†practically¬†wear shorts and the next you need full on winter gear. ¬†It’s no wonder everyone is and has been sick.

Oh another, happier note. ¬†I have moved positions at work and I finally signed the PAN form today. ¬†My new manger was nice enough to bump up my pay. ūüėÄ ¬†It was only a little. ¬†Basically he rounded my salary up but it amounted to almost a thousand dollars! ¬†I am one happy girl! ¬†In all my years here and through all my manager changes and position changes I’ve never actually received any sort of pay increase. ¬†I’ve gotten raises each year but never an actual salary change. ¬†I’m sure this won’t result in my change on my pay check but the gesture was very nice and much appreciated.

Happy Wednesday!

Hello November

Hello November

Today I had lunch outside with the hubs. ¬†Actually we’ve had the windows open for a few days now and one might even say it’s a bit warm in here. ¬†Literally, it’s kind of hot in the house, in NOVEMBER! ¬†I am not going to complain though. ¬†This weather has ¬†been amazing for this time of year.

I hope the weather stays this way for a few more days.  With Thanksgiving only a few days away, it would be nice to enjoy the season, a warm season that it.

And while I’m at it, wish me luck. ¬†I will be cooking my first Thanksgiving meal, mostly by myself. ¬†Matt will be frying our turkey in the new oil less turkey fryer. ¬†{We did a test run over the weekend with a small turkey breast and it turned out pretty nice.} ¬†Tomorrow night I will start working on the desserts. ¬†EEEKKK!

I’ll be back next week to let you know how it all went.

Happy Thanksgiving!
