Friday Fragments

Mrs. 4444 hosts this weekly gathering of fragments. Go give her a shoutout!

Half-Past Kissin' Time

Lots happening around here. So here goes.

Good news is Whitney has a phone interview next Friday for a dream job. And she may have another interview get set up today. Fingers crossed that something great works out for her.

A lot of excitement at work yesterday and not the good kind. Somebody drove through the security gate at the loading dock and we think committed suicide in his burning car. Sad day. Praying for his family and also for our loading dock guy and the security guard that had to deal with it. We don't know a lot about what happened. But it was on national news because of our building.

We got our refund finally from our missed tour while in London last month. It took a month but I'm so happy to get that refund when it was the company's fault. I have written a review of them on Tripadvisor.

I'm off to San Diego next week for a two day workshop. I'm looking forward to eating at another Top Chef restaurant which just happens to be less than a mile from my hotel. Score a win for me!

We had a tree guy trim back our horribly overgrown bushes. He thinks they will all come back but for the first year they are going to look pretty sparse. It was much cheaper to pay him to cut them back than it would have been to dig them up and start from scratch. I'll live with scruffy looking.

Also time to plant some flower seeds. Last year's experiment with my seeds worked out so well that I'm trying again. I picked a shorter flower so hopefully they won't fall over into the sidewalk this year. 

And with that, I'm done with fragments.


  1. Ooh, what Top Chef restaurant are you visiting? That's fun!

    Good luck on the job interviews, Whitney!

    Horrible about the suicide, ugh. So sorry. :(

  2. It has been many, many years since I was in San Diego. I bet it has changed a lot since my last visit... let's see, that was in 1953. Oh lordy, now I've up and told you how old I am!! (grin)

  3. Have fun in San Diego and say hi to the ocean for me :)


  4. There's lots more to growing flowers than picking out the pretty ones, isn't there? We got flower seeds at a bridal shower today; cute idea. Good luck with yours!

    I heard about that incident--very sad!

    San Diego is beautiful! Have fun :) Thanks for linking up!!!

  5. Best wishes to Whitney. Sounds like you got some none to enjoyable excitement at work, my heart goes out to all who have been touched by the such a sad event. Have a great time in San Diego.
