The Secret Life of Blogger's Blog Party (10/5/2015-10/10/2015)

What a week it's been! I started my new job on Monday and it has been a great week.I like my co-workers, I like what I'm learning, and I feel challenged by everything I'm learning. Everyone at the library is happy for me as well. With everything going on - a full time job, a part time job, and book work, the weeks just fly by! I feel confident that my book should be finished on Thanksgiving, Black Friday the latest! Yesterday when I was talking to the big boss, the controller, he had heard I am a writer. I said I was, he was saying his wife is as well, but she has been trying to find an agent to publish her. I said I use Amazon to self publish, it's much easier. We were talking, I mentioned my book, and he surprised me when he said: "Let me know when you're done. I'll buy a copy!" How cool is that!? He's not running for re-election, though.

I set up my photography display at the library (after I finished the library job).

Stamps I ordered came in. They're too beautiful to use, so I'm going to put them into an album:

The beautiful sunset I saw on my walk.

You can see the wings!

I posted this on Wesley's Facebook:
One of my dad's foreign friends owns a food store. The last time I saw him was six years ago, but dad says he always inquires about me. My parents went out to dinner tonight for their anniversary, so last night I said to dad, "how about we go see our friend since you always say he asks about me." Dad thought that was a great idea. After work, dad picked me up and went to the store. He was SOOO happy to see me. You should have seen the big smile. We were going to pay, but he maintained we should have the meal on him. I told him some time during the week I will stop by for lunch. How cool is that? It was so nice and I feel so thankful! It was VERY good!

This was the surprise I woke up to this morning!

Went to Birds & Beyond, Inc.'s "Birds of Prey" show today.

Put some milkweed flower in when we got home.

Two final chrysallises hanging by our house. Amazing the survived the hurricane storms last night!

We will be keeping this big guy outside.

Just as this little guy.

I hope everyone else had a good week! Look forward to next week's edition! Have a great rest of the weekend and enjoy the week ahead! ~Jessica

Oh, I had this surprise come in the other day since my other rug was ruined when I washed it.

    Nothing like having your chair near the window.
