What a week.

This is a spread I did in one of my altered art group members books. Next month we should be done with our RR altered books and I can hardly wait to get mine back. It is so much fun to see each month what has been done. The horse in this painting is my girl, Babe. We've had her since day one. She is our little orphan baby. We lost her mom, Centre (pronounced sin-tree...long story) 5 days after Babe was born.

Other news: This was my first week of being unemployed. I applied for unemployment...but only applied to one job. It's kind of hard to feel unemployed this week it being Thanksgiving week and all. I kind of feel like Scarlet O'Hara in 'Gone with the Wind'...And I will worry about it tomorrow...or next week or next month....

Our 2nd annual local art show went well. I did very well so was pretty happy.

Have all the potato's for tomorrow done (sweet and mashed) and the turkey is soaking in it's brine overnight. CR and I are doing all the fixing's this year as LJ still isn't doing all that great. So will be dragging everything down to CR's house tomorrow for the feast. Just hoping that this won't be our last Thanksgiving with LJ.

wishing everyone a wonderful peaceful Thanksgiving.

Cover letters?

No photos or pics today. My Internet link is down and using daughter's.

I have been looking for a new job for the last few weeks as my last day at my current position will be Nov 16th. I have been with my current employer for almost 18 years. Now I discover you not only need a resume but you now need a cover letter. What the f*#$? What is a cover letter?

Well, it seems to be an introduction (did I spell that right? I don't even know any more or really care) and prelude to your resume. We sure didn't do cover letters the last time I was out looking for a job. So am scrabbling trying to figure all this crap out.

Other news: My friend LJ with the brain cancer is back in the hospital with a staph infection after the second surgery for the tumor which they were not able to get all of it. When I went to visit her yesterday in the H she was not in the best of moods, but then who would be in her situation. They give her 3 to 6 months...unless she can get into a trial that may prolong her life for a few more months to a few more years....

Sorry such a depressing post...but things aren't all rosey for us at the moment.
