My First Day

. . . as an assistant editor working on cookbooks.  Surprised?  I was!  I was offered this plum little job after my new employers read my blog.  Apparently The Record I created here for myself is also A Resume.



I had not envisioned working outside our home for a long time yet, but economic circumstances and out-of-the-blue job offers changed my mind.



Too soon to tell how this part time job will affect my life, although my priority is still my family and our homelife.  I'm not sure if the etsy shop and the local sewing consigning will survive, but you all have made this blog such a happy place that The Record, however abbreviated, will continue.  Thank you, dear readers.



I am taking things one day at a time right now, an unusual method for me and a real blessing.  And yes, my first day as an assistant editor was lovely.  I look forward to more.

P.S. Sandals, $3 (!!!),  comfy, leather, stylish, and in my size!  Wow.

    I hope you let us know when your job introduces you to new "thrifty" cookbooks. I've been reading your blog since I got married last summer to glean tips for thriftier cooking!

  9. What a neat blend of your talents and interests! Congratulations!!

    I have to say that part-time assistant editor of cookbooks sounds rather Proverbs 31-ish to me. The woman who uses her unique talents and interests to help her family!

I enjoy the conversation in the comments - thank you for that. I will answer your questions here in the comments. Please note that I don't want the world wide web to know my family's surnames and location.
