Merry Christmas, Happy Wintertime!

Just posting a bit of an update since my last scooter ride post in October. My how time flies!

I am no longer delivering flowers or looking for a house, at least until spring. We are cozily nested here at the "cottage by the mall" for another winter.

I left the flower gig after Mother's Day and took the summer to find another line of work. It was a slow and frustrating process, but I finally am working full-time at the local grocery across the street. I wanted to do this for the convenience of being able to scoot or walk to work and because the people are just wonderful to work for and with. So I am enjoying it and learning quickly how physically out of shape I had become during the summer.

I am also learning a lot about ham, turkey, cheese, cole slaw, apple salad, and slicing machines because right now I am on the deli team. It is fun, but hard work some days. Mostly fun and my co-workers make it that way. I never have to wonder what I am going to wear to work each day because the company supplies our uniforms, plus we get a discount on our groceries. So it is great for now and time will tell how long I stay there.

Meanwhile, I am content and grateful to have this job so close to home.

We have had unseasonably warm weather here, but Hoot went to the "scooter lair" a few days ago for a well-deserved rest for the winter. No more scooting to work for now. I hope to get a ride in here and there, weather permitting.

So life is pretty mundane here and I am very busy working nights, so probably few blogs through the wintertime.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a happy, peaceful wintertime!


  1. Congrats on that grocery job. I worked two natural foods stores in NE WI and work at a bakery for the holiday season. Good co-workers make it or break it. So, I'm happy for you.

    I'm probably going back into hibernation, too. Just nothing to talk about, nothing interesting to share. Hence, the peeling paint on the house :^)

    Have fun, enjoy, relax. I know you will enjoy the customers and the chat.

    1. Yeah, I am "deli-bakery" and the people DO make this job a lot of fun, though it is hard some days because we are so short of help. But I can't complain because of the things I like about it...

  2. Oh, and Merry Christmas to you, too!

  3. Wishing you both (Deb and Martha) happy holidays.

    Deb it's nice to hear that you've got a job where you're working in the company of nice folks. There is a lot to be grateful for there.

  4. Merry Christmas Deb, good to hear from you again and happy for you, your new job and excellent commute!! You can't imagine how envious I am of that part.

    Hope you get an early, bright and warm Spring!

  5. Merry Christmas Deb! My bike is tucked away snoozing in the moto lair, which has been good because we have had an extremely wet winter so far and very little sun. Good to hear about your new job.

  6. How did I miss this post? It's a bit late to wish you a Merry Christmas Deb so I will wish you a Happy New Year instead. :)
