It's so very pretty outside this morning. The streets and sidewalks are still glistening from our recent days of rain, but the sky is clear and the sun is shining brightly. Shrubs seem backlit, their carnival of colors glowing. We're in for an unusually beautiful day.. so says the weatherman, and I'm appreciating all of it.
It also helps that I have today off! Today and tomorrow, to be exact. And, Olga's (Ollie from Ireland) coming to visit! YAY.. we're going to go out and show her a good time these next few days.
I phoned a Barclay's Bank recruitment hotline yesterday, inquiring after a job ad Lou found online. After a twenty minute preliminary phone interview, they're sending me the application pack and passing my name on to the particular branch where the post is available. There is one requirement where I may have stretched the truth so I've some studying up to do... but this one looks like a good 'foot-in-the-door' and I couldn't let it go without trying.
Loubie's up now.. the rumplehead sleeps later than I do. My back begins to ache if I stay in bed too long.. and she could use the extra time hogging the bed, without my occasional, ever so feminine snoring. I'm gonna go love on her while she's still warm from the covers!
Then it'll be time for me to hit the shower. We have a plane to meet shortly!
