Today I sat on an interview panel for a vacant management position at work. The college interviews candidates marathon style - back-to-back appointments during a five-hour stretch. We had a bathroom break. Just one. I’m spent.
It reminds me of the last time I participated on one. We needed to hire a director and one of the candidates looked fantastic on paper and in person he was even better. He mesmerized us throughout the interview and we were hands-down loving him. Until…I don’t remember how or why, dogs came into the conversation. He proudly announced, “I can do without dogs.” With the same passion and enthusiasm he exuded during his visit, he went on to say he hated dogs. For what reason? Unknown. Well, after a few glances at each other around the table, we knew right away he’d receive his walking papers. In less than a minute, he blew it.
There are more hummingbirds arriving daily. They're making my head spin! May I inflict a few more hummingbird photos on you tonight? I have a backlog of great ones but here are two…
Last July, during the driest summer on record, I found a sickly butterfly bush for $5.00. It was about two-feet round, had one solitary bloom, and maybe a dozen pale green leaves. I’m so glad I nursed that bush back to life.
A young black rat snake napped in a corner of the front porch. Chloe didn’t see it but Bella squealed with excitement.
It slithered along the storm door...
Thirty minutes until bedtime (yawn). Can’t wait… If you are still with me and haven't dozed off, good night.
