Just When You Think...

Thank you all so much for the well wishes
over the past couple of weeks!
My body is healing nicely and I
am feeling better than I have in a long time.

I knew that my recovery time was going to 
be spent designing business
essentials and ordering all of my paper goods. 
All things that did not require lifting anything
but my fingers to the keyboard.
That was the plan.

The week before surgery, I went
into one, of our two, small town banks
to close an account. I had procrastinated
on this for a looong time {just ask my husband}.
I finally "found" the time to do it. Begrudgingly.

Something about procrastination and timing
because I left the bank with more than
I had gone in with and I'm not talking
about the money I got from closing the account.

They offered me a position.

A new job.
A job.

Talk about spinning.

They offered, I accepted, I interviewed, they accepted,
they offered, I accepted.

I start in a couple of weeks.

I had no idea what would transpire that day
but it started with this: I started singing a Keith Urban song
and turned on the radio. Keith Urban was on. Same song AND the same exact words I was singing. Serious!

I trust in God's plan and what he has planned.

So, no FPH Bakery.
Should things change, at least I have that and
my skilled hands to fall back on.
Weekend baking? Mmmm, maybe but probably not.

I think my new position will re-light my creative fire though.
Something I've missed for a while, now.
Instead of it being work it will be pleasure, 
something to unwind with. 
The funny thing is, I've been pulling things out of my 
packed boxes and have actually wanted to do something with them.

Maybe taking a break from the house will give me fresh eyes
every weekend to appreciate what we've accomplished and spur me/us to finish where we've left off.
Regardless, I am so ecstatic!
I feel like I've won something {because I'm one of those
that never does, regardless of how many tickets I buy
to guarantee my win}.

I don't know where that leaves my blog.
I surely do not want to blog about banking but
maybe our weekend renovations will give me material to share with you all. This is, after all, supposed to be a home
renovation blog with some recipes and tips thrown in.

So, I am going to savor my last couple of weeks at home, get some simple projects finished, share some of those things with you and prepare for my re-entry to the corporate world.

Wow, a new career. Who knew? 

Wishing you a Happy Easter. 
We all have lots to be thankful for, especially me.


  1. I am so surprised and so happy you're happy. It's been so long since I've had a job I highly doubt I could go back because I can barely wear shoes for longer than an hour. One thing I believe about you is that you will do great no matter what you're doing, and now you'll have the best of two worlds. Yay!

  2. Congrats on your new job Amber!!! Hop e you had a wonderful Easter weekend with your family.



Come on in, the door's always open!
