What can I say that I haven't written before in this week of splendor? I am enjoying the warm weather that proves that the groundhog may have been right in his prediction of an early spring. It even smells like spring in the air. Now, if the snow would just melt a little faster under the shade trees in my yard then I would be out in the yard, starting the early spring cleanup of the debris that Old Man Winter has left behind in his fit of fury.
I look at the tulips on my counter that open and close morning and night with anticipation of the beautiful colors yet to come in 2011. I know it will only be a matter of time before the petals fall off, but maybe by then the naturalized bulbs I have planted throughout the yard will take their place and continue to grace me with the colors of spring.
During my last day in Florida, I happen to notice this lizard on a tree. Do you know what it is? I found it pretty interesting and a perfect candidate for a last minute picture.
Today I was at work and interviewed three perspective employees at the garden center. While interviewing one of the candidates I couldn't help but notice her twisting her hair and wondered if she was nervous about the talk. I found myself sympathizing as I remembered some of my monumental interviews. It's a nerve racking experience wouldn't you agree? You don't want to seem too cool and comfortable because then you appear to be a professional job searcher without a history of lengthy jobs. But, then again, you also don't want to seem too nervous or else what you say can be misunderstood or gone astray. I usually can tell within minutes of an interview whether I like the candidate or not. While I find resumes to be interesting, there's nothing like a one on one, fact finding interview that really tells the history of a person. Words on paper are just that, but looking someone in the face, listening to their passion, their joys, history and sometimes even their failures and successes are their true resume.
My dear Boxer Bailey still continues to fluctuate in between feeling well and not so swell, so we will continue to care for her and keep her on her special diet.
The rest of the week promises to yield more snow thawing and warmer temperatures. On Saturday I'm having a Tupperware Party with a friend of mine and thinking about making the appetizers in a Garden Party theme..
I hope you had a wonderful week and are looking forward to an even more wonderful weekend! If you're a NASCAR fan, I wish your driver a safe trip around the track of the Daytona 500.
