The dawn of a new day?

Yesterday's sunrise from my front porch.
Yesterday was hopefully the start of some new ventures for us. V feels that his job interview went well. He should hear soon one way or the other since they want the job to start Dec 1. Also, yesterday I submitted my letter of interest in the clinical supervisor position that's coming available. Now, I just have to do a formal cover letter and update my resume before Thanksgiving. My department hopes to have these positions in place for the new year so things should progress quickly on that front as well.
Today, I am off to finish painting the basement at the old house. I haven't been able to make time recently but it needs to happen today because our realtor is hosting another open house tomorrow afternoon so I want it done! He did say that there was a family that looked at the house and came back for a second showing so we'll keep our fingers crossed. They evidently have daughters attending the university and are looking for a house. They were concerned that it is only listed as a 3 bedroom house (there is a 4th non-conforming bedroom in the basement) and they want 4 bedrooms. We'll see.
After I finish painting (and probably raking the leaves there!), I need to work on cleaning and organizing the pantry at the top of the basement stairs. I never got around to wiping everything down after all the construction dust we have generated in the last month or so and it's driving me crazy. The pantry area has also become the place where people (not just me) stick stuff that they "don't-know-where-else-to-put-it" so I need to organize things better. I want to shift some things from the kitchen cabinets to the pantry to make more room. I've been gradually rebuilding the food stores and need to find places for everything. We worked hard on eating down our supplies before we moved- so everything fit neatly when we moved in- now, not so much.
Well, I've got a busy day ahead of me. Time to get another cup of coffee, put in the contacts and start a load of laundry.
Have a great weekend!


  1. Beautiful sunrise Judy! I hope you have a productive weekend, and that painting the basement at your old house does the trick! :)

  2. I hope you are able to sell your other house soon! I know that would be a great stress off your mind and a good way to start the new year. Good luck with all your job endeavors!

  3. Sounds like fun and I hope the new job opportunities work out for both of you!


Glad you stopped in. I would love to hear from you.
