Haha Jen, if we have too much bounty, well give it away! But, Tom eats more than a 30 year old boy!

Gosh, snow on the ground Heather...yuck! Well, agriculture is pretty extreme in that everything is pretty much bought and sold on a commodity price basis, agreed to upon the point of buy or sell. ...and everything dies, or shrinks or gains. A bin of broccoli once iced will gain 3% weight, whereas a bin of lettuce once cooled will lose some percentage. LOL, its ridiculous, but 5-7 days is great, 10 days is typical...and beyond that means bad accounting.

I find that in retirement I am not as patient as I once was - lol. I have to weather this one out, because Ive agreed to the work...but Im not sure my heart is in it with stupid people at the helm. The good thing is that the owner is starting to recognize why Im running into roadblocks...

Life is not a journey to the grave with intentions of arriving safely in a pretty well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming ... WOW! What a ride!

45-60 days!!!???!!! What in the world? How complex can it be? :)

We do a 5 day close, and we really do it in 3.

Super fun thinking about gardening. Right now we are under about 3 feet of snow, so hard to imagine spring, but it's coming!!!

Oh my goodness Carol, what will you do with all that food in your garden?! That's a lot of fruit to eat! It sounds wonderful though :)

Hi guys!

The project manager at one of my clients was supposed to finish new product IDs and enter them by 1/15/21...needless to say, it still isnt done, so last Monday she said shed give them to me and finally sent them today! So, I have a bunch of work, which is good...but shes impossible.

My new plant controller will start March 1st! I cant wait! I told the owner that I wasnt going to include the project manager, even though she was asking. I told him that the plant controller was much more experienced and a faster learner. He agreed. I also told him that my plan was to close in 10 days at first, but to get it down to 7. He was laughing because they dont close the month until 45-60 days - lol. I told him that he can then hold their feet to the fire and he loves that plan! He and I are so similar that we are having fun causing trouble!

I did get in some good gardening today. I upgraded my 4x68 planter box by adding deer fence so that they stop eating my strawberry plants! I planted 30 more plants, bringing them up to 60 total, so far. I plan to buy another 100 or so once they get them in at my favorite nursery. We put in another 6 fruit trees and 50 lavender bushes! Im having so much fun! My 1,100 daffodils are coming up and one is blooming!

Hello hello! Dropping by while RJ sleeps and before I take a nap myself.

I had a nice swim this weekend and my classes went well. My plan of morning bedside yoga has been going well too. And so my stress eating has improved with those measures. Yay!

Kinda low mood today, but it's improving with rest and knowing that I'll have help tonight.

Hi all!! Just a quick hello so we only have one thread. I'll come back later to chat!

I'm hoping to get to the pool this week!! It's a challenge with the way it's scheduled.
