Arranging A Plan

Last week Nonie called to tell me of a florist that needed help with arrangements and wondered if I was interested.  That would be a yes.  I met another friend for coffee and she wanted to know if I was interested in doing some contract work for a company in town that sells homemade soap.  When they get big orders, they call in extra help as needed which is what she had just recently done.  That would be a yes.

Day One at the florist's house consisted of showing me what to do and shoving buckets of flowers and vases at me to arrange.  And I was in heaven. 

No interview.  No interview outfit.  No selling my skills.  No excessive smiling.  No sipping the Kool-Aid.......and if I wanted to work more they'd love to have me back.  Seriously?????  You like me?  You really, really like me????

This week I painted furniture.  Tomorrow and Saturday it's flowers.  Who knows where I'll make a buck next week, but gypsy employment is turning out to be an interesting gig.
