Back to Work

Issues were finally resolved between Miss Twinkie and the management of Lehman House of Couture, so it's back to the salt mines for the whole staff. As you can see, I don't exactly run a sweatshop.

Some days I wonder how I would ever get anything done without such good workers.

At the Beach

Wasn't planning to go. Ended up doing MomTaxi duty when the guys' planned transportation failed. I have to admit it was nice to get away for a little while. Although it was the last week of the official spring break period, it was not crowded. The weather was really nice with temperatures in the 70's and low 80's during the day, 60's at night.  It was breezy and sunny every day. Clear night skies allowed plenty of star gazing. I watched a beautiful moonrise between two tall condos the first night and the ISS (International Space Station) do a flyover the next night. There was a lovely view of Venus, Jupiter, Mars, and Saturn every night.

A nice little spot to relax day or night

The water was clear and lovely the entire time. Most days there was a bit of surf, but the last day it was like glass.

It was very relaxing beside the calm water.

Made a couple of new friends who visited with me almost daily

I missed all my furbabies, so late in the afternoon on the last day, I was inspired to do a little sand sculpture.

I had to leave to head back to Huntsville before seeing the incoming tide wash it away that evening.

Last evening; only sunset photo I made

Happy Easter

The buns wanted to help me wish everyone a Happy Easter

and to remind everyone to get chocolate or toy bunnies and chicks for Easter instead of real ones.

Lacking in the Art of Persuasion

As a result of her unacceptable sewing room behavior, Sewing Assistant Twinkie has asked for mediation with the Head Seamstress to try to reinstate Twinkie's position as an assistant at Lehman House of Couture.

Unfortunately, Miss Twinkie lost control while presenting her side of the argument.

To make matters worse, she is unwilling to accept advice from Counsel.

This has resulted in a delay the negotiations. At this point, things are at a standstill. The mediation process and treats are on hold until Miss Twinkie can behave in a more acceptable manner.

Then tried to disavow any knowledge of alleged offenses.

Assistant Twinkie is officially on notice and cat treats will be withheld until behavior is modified.
