Do you have a plastic pelican in front of your fax machine???
Chances are, you might, if you are a parent or grandparent! I had not ever had one until today when a grandchild placed it there. My first reaction was a negative one, and my daughter completed the statement I was ABOUT to make, with a totally positive one, and with a feeling of gratefulness! My attitude changed on a dime, and it just goes to show how you can take a situation and turn it around all with how you look at it!!! So...the pelican in front of the fax machine is a symbol of love for me! I can't dare move it!!!
Now if anyone wants the recipe I used for my roasted pumpkin seeds, you can find it HERE, at Allrecipes.com. These were the best I've made so far. I have roasted them about 5 times over the years, and these were crunchy, sweet and slightly spicy (only a tad). I didn't have any chili powder, so I substituted cumin.
Oh, and it is official...I am gainfully employed once again!!! I start orientation on Friday! I have to buy scrubs again, and either nurses shoes or sneakers...I am leaning toward nurses shoes...as long as they are COMFORTABLE! I will report on it all later! Wish me luck! Hopefully this will be a dream come true...I hope so...regardless, I am sticking it out till the day I retire! Only 12 more years!
Oh...and I am already planning the Disney World trip with the kids in a few months! Nice time of year to go when it is cooler during fall/winter...maybe around Thanksgiving or Christmas time...we shall see. Gotta see Micky and Donalds house and get an ice cream cone on Main Street!!!
