So, it's official. I started my new job this Monday. I have to commute all the way to the southern tip of Brooklyn, which takes about 90-100 minutes for me each way. I figured that I would be able to sit down and get a bit of crafting or reading done during my commute...boy was I wrong. The trains are incredibly crowded in early morning, and moreso in the evening. I'm lucky if I get a seat during the last 30 minutes of the commute. Haha, that pretty much throws my plans right out the window. Oh, the things I would have made! These things happen. So...my hunt for some good audiobooks begins.
The people that I worked with previously got me a card, which they all signed, and flowers on my last day of work. Many people came to me personally to wish me well. The gesture made me a little misty-eyed. I will definitely miss all the wonderful people that I was able to meet and work with. Truly.
During the weekend, I went down to Union Square and purchased some organically grown herbs and planted them in a window box. Guess who they're for?? Hehe.
Although I'm definitely excited about having fresh herbs on hand for cooking, I'm more excited thinking about how happy Oscar will be when he has a variety of fresh organically grown herbs to eat. He frequently visits the kitchen in anticipation of getting a little taste of the herbs in addition to the other greens that have been gradually introduced into his diet.
Meanwhile, the lazy little bunny's been keeping me company by my feet when I use the computer in the early mornings, before I leave for work. I know he doesn't look all that excited about the herbs right now (given my lack of a green thumb), but believe me, he's dreaming about them! =)
