My 18th Tea Time Tuesday & Teacup and Tea Things Tuesday
Hi everyone....Happy Tea Tuesday to all of you. You know what? I actually had coffee this morning...It's feels like I'm committing scandal...BUT coffee is so lovely on a Tuesday morning.
You might remember this cup from an earlier post. I'll be reposting photos for awhile because I haven't had the opportunity to find new tea things...So maybe instead I'll entertain you with some "cup of tea" talk :) :)
Lots of things are happening lately...the big one being that work is really keeping me busy. That's a good thing, because it means a paycheck. Last night I cried and cried because I didn't want to be at work today . However, once I got there I was so blessed by my coworkers. Plus, I started a different project at work that involves calling businesses. It's really interesting and there are seven other people that work with me. They're really interesting...ad I've been praying that God would help me to be a good example to them...of Jesus Christ and a good work ethic, too!!! We are doing cold-calling which is tough....most of the time the businesses we call are very polite!!! Still...I just tried to encourage everyone because they're doing so well....and they need a confidence boost.
I am struggling with keeping a grateful heart about work...so I'd appreciate your prayers that God would just overwhelm my thoughts with good things...attitude of thankfulness...joy...etc!!!! Thanks!!!
What else...oh I almost forgot....every once in awhile I'll tell you stories about these homeless kitties that roam the apartment complex. Lately this orange/white cat (I named him Sherbet).keeps trying adopt my dad and I...well, this morning (while it was still dark) my dad and I left to drive me to work. This little cat was waiting for us...on purpose...I'm sure of it.. and he jumped out from behind the tree and started meowing all cute and sweet. Oh goodness...my heart melted and I wanted to "adopt" him right then and there. Nope....can't do it, until I can afford a pet deposit...but I do pray for these cats ...that God would look out for them and give them safe place to rest at night and get out of the rain!!!
Hmm...I"m a bit of a rambler today...there's lots going on...I'm crafting...working..sleeping. Still....so thankful for a job....and a nice home waiting for me after work......On that note, I'm going to jump into my warm flannel nightgown. It's so perfect on cold winter days!!! My dad laughs at me and says I look like I"m a character on "Little House on the Prairie" :) Well, I hope you are having a good week so far. That's the news from Oregon. Love and hugs, Heather :)
p.s. The sheer ribbon tied to the handle of my teacup...that was what my friend Linda used to package one of the cute items she sent me awhile back :) :) :) I kept the packaging and the ribbon :)
