Ask….You Might Be Surprised

I reached out to one of my volunteer opportunities this week and inquired about nature photography. Lucky for me she said she has been looking for someone to take pictures. I said I had a strong interest…I didn’t say I was good. Forty volunteer hours taking pictures should make me better…I hope. I was so excited yesterday when I found out for sure!!

I also stopped after work yesterday and talked about my potential crescent moon tattoo. I made the appointment which isn’t until July and it’s only going to cost me $20.00. I am extra happy about that!  The owners daughter works the front and she said she would call me if there were any cancellations. I’m not in a hurry so it doesn’t matter to me. She has great energy. I know I say that every time I am there but it’s true. Some people are genuinely authentic and positive and she is 100% both of those.

I’m not so mad at the Girl anymore. I proved my point….hopefully she gets it. It’s very strange (but in a good way) that my Little Buddy text me the next day and offered to teach the Girl how to drive this Summer. Her and her girlfriend are all about it…and hey..if they can get the Girl to drive, more power to them!

Today was MH’s last day. (insert sad face) She came out of retirement to help out while BV was down after knee surgery. I learned so much from working with her the past couple of weeks. I’m sad that she is gone again and grateful for all of the things I have learned. She loves my Limoncello and I brought her some today, she brought me something too….

She is so sweet and she has things in tip top shape over in optical. I have a feeling that 30% of my time in optical will be spent cleaning up after the Optician once she comes back. She is like the cartoon Tasmanian Devil sometimes. Only time will tell, I guess we will see how it goes? I used to know about lenses and it drives me crazy that I am not as informed as I should be. I still have a few things from my lab days in addition to my ABO training materials. I have someone from the lab putting together some things for me and I have a call into the VSP lab for our rep to give me a call. If someone asks me a question about lenses and availability… I want to know the answer. The new stuff is about the blue light filters in the lenses and everyone has their own version…I just need to figure out the best choice. I started building my binder tonight.

Other than emails about my volunteer work and my new Reiki business cards, I have been food prepping and trying to catch up on my cleaning. I got a lot done today and I feel good about that.

Here is an update on my Rose of Jericho plant from tonight…

What a curious plant…I’m so glad I bought that little tumble weed…..Zia
