I can not belief that it is Friday already again, this week just flew by again...either that means I am getting old or I am having fun, I think in my case it's probably both.
I went to work early on Tuesday evening to catch up on some of my office work and had one of my "new" co-workers stop by and tour the facility so she will be familiar with it in case she has to work at that location. We have actually spend a lot of time together lately and have a lot of fun working together. Funny that there are still people that try to warn you about other people, but I just shake my head and go on my own merry way, first of all I am a really good judge in characters and can make up my own opinions of people and don't need any cohering from others in that department, mostly their judgements stem from their own insecurities and that's their problem. I am also too old to listen to idle gossip or to be constantly on the look out for people trying to stab you in the back....if that's what they need to do to get their way or feel good about themselves....go ahead....we all know what happens to those kind of people in the end, so it really doesn't affect me in any way. I am just doing my job and work with what I have.
Wednesday was Open Day at the farm, we had a lot of visitors out as most of the day was sunny and warm, there were a few storm clouds in the late afternoon, but they never amounted to anything. The week prior our little donkey Sable had a special visitor, her former owner came to visit. It's amazing to see the smile on Jack's face when he is around that little donkey. She sure was loved and is still loved by him. Sable was owned by an elderly couple and when Jack had a stroke a few years back, his wife wasn't able to look after him and the two little donkeys they owned. So with a heavy heart they gave those donkeys to the DSC. One of them died shortly after arrival due to a tumor, and Sable was adopted and taken care of by what was then Pansy and Poppy. Now that Poppy is no longer with us either, Sable and Pansy are inseparable. Sable is very dependent on Pansy and really is stressed when Pansy is nowhere in sight, which really doesn't happen very often. Sable is also a donkey that is hard to lead, so whenever you need to get Sable somewhere it's easier to just get Pansy and Sable is sure to follow without any trouble.
Thursday was a day full of work with Tots in the morning and then a staff meeting in the afternoon. Tots was fun, our little Indian princess has, after eight weeks of program, finally stopped crying and is playing with the other children and she sure is a cutie, however,lol, being a typical 2 year old, and still way too young for the program, she is into everything, and I mean everything, so at this point we are not sure what was better, her handing on to me and crying or her being on the loose and needed to be watched and followed like a hawk, which still means she occupies on instructor completely, but at least it is a lot quieter lol....wonder how she will make out after the long summer break lol.
So being Friday today means it's my night to work again and I have tons of stuff to do, thank god I work long tonight so I should get a good chunk of it done. I love having lots to do, it makes the time just fly by. While I will be working most of my stitching sisters will enjoy a long weekend up at beautiful Brentwood on the Beach, sorry that I am missing it this time, but just too much work and well I need to save my money for September.
The weekend will be full of donkeys and tons of people, as we have our Donor Appreciation Afternoon with over 400 guests and Sunday is Open Day. It will definitely be a long tiring weekend and it will continue way into next week with more meetings and extra work as I am once again filling in at another location. Woo hoo! But I am starting to like it that way....but having a quiet day once in a while would be nice too.
