Ho, ho, ho to and Merry Christmas to all you riders out there in Blogger Land!!!
'Tis the eve of Christmas Eve and my flower delivery gig is about to be up. One more day of spreading floral cheer throughout the land!
And am I ready for a rest!
After over a thousand miles and hundreds of flower arrangements, poinsettas, center pieces, and fruit baskets, I am finally coming to a close on my seasonal busy-ness.
And it has really been FUN and oftentimes HARD WORK! But mostly FUN!
Naturally I've learned a few things and seen a few things and concluded a few things.
Flowers smell delightful crowded into the car going down the road!
Big fruit baskets weigh a TON!
Candles do NOT want to stand up in the middle of floral centerpieces.
Poinsettas do not want to stand up inside an SUV cab-they love to lean and tilt.
Most people never use their front door. They come and go via their garages, so set the orders out where they can see them when they drive up.
Few people seem to know their neighbors but are willing to hold orders for them until they come home.
Lillies and roses smell the best.
Dog owners do NOT need to install doorbells on their front doors. WOOF!
People LOVE getting flowers and fruit baskets and centerpieces and I loved seeing their smiles of delight when they opened the door.
And finally, I loved this gig and I am hoping to continue doing something like this after the holidays.
Hope all your holidays are filled with love and laughter!
See ya next year!

I have to admit that my time living in the country changed me into a simple little soul. Yea, by that I mean I like to keep it simple.
Life, that is.
For me, life is best enjoyed on a primal level and that goes for my work as well.
I like simple, clean, pure work. Nothing complicated. No monumental accomplishments.
Just quiet, simple, productive work.
I like being "out and about" too. In the outdoors, that is.
Not sitting in a confined office space.
So, I've come upon this little gig that I will run through Christmas.
It is a simple, happy little gig: delivering flowers!
I ride in my cute little truck with my cute little Maxidog, Co-Pilot Extraordinnaire, and we drive around the nearby neighborhoods and bring joy and happiness and color to people!
It's only through Christmas Eve, but it's fun, it's easy, and it's fulfilling in a simple sort of way!
No wonder HE loves his gig!
