I cut these pretty flowers from my window box. There are 3 plants in the window box - a variegated ivy in the center, and 2 flowering plants on either side. One was getting a little too tall and leggy so I clipped a few flower stalks off hoping it will fill out a little more. It sure makes nice cuttings for inside.
I then went out for my morning walk. I usually walk about 3 miles a day (the same route) but today I walked longer - when I got about 3/4 of the way I came upon a construction crew working on the sewer and could not go any further so I had to turn around and go back rather than continue the last 1/4 of the way. They have been doing the work for the last 2 months in different spots along the way but I have always been able to walk around - not today. Oh well - I could sure use the extra exercise!
Then it was off to my eye appointment - besides driving around in the hospital parking lot for almost 15 minutes looking for a space it was uneventful. On the way home I decided to stop at a re-sale shop in that neighborhood. I got a great bag to take on my interview Friday. I am a small-purse-person and felt I needed something for Friday and was delighted to find this bag.
All of my other interviews (4 in total in 5 months) have been local in the suburban area so I drove and just walked in with my leather portfolio containing my resume and my little purse. The interview on Friday is in Philadelphia and I will be taking the train. I thought it would be better to have a nice bag that I could put my purse or wallet into, a folder with my resume/recommendation rather than my leather portfolio, and a book (in case I am able to focus and read on the train). I'm happy with the bag and the bargain. I'm hoping it brings me luck.
