I’ll try to write my meal plans tomorrow but today’s post is going to a collection of randomness! Hooray for randomness!
Today was a long day. I found myself at 6:00 at night shopping for ingredients for a dish for a potluck tomorrow saying out loud “I hate being an adult” The end of the day was very frustrating but most of the day was pretty good.
My interview went meh I think I did okay but I know I didn’t do great so part of my morning was spent sitting in my office going over all the things I could have said differently. However, I’m not the person to beat myself up over it. The good news is I’m applying for jobs while I still have a job so that makes things a little bit easier. I should know in about a week, if I get it, great, if not, I’ll do better next time.
Today I was a little silly with my board in the beginning of the day. I was very convinced I could draw Yoda and the more I look at this it wasn’t the worst drawing ever, perhaps a little work on the bottom to make it look more like a robe instead of ET’s body might have made the difference…or not 😄 My day kind of went downhill after I erased Yoda.
I consistently have to remind myself that I’m not responsible for the actions of other people. I just get frustrated when I believe in someone more than they believe in themselves or when I genuinely try to help and they give up. It’s challenging to want someone to see their potential for change but to realize they don’t want to see it; however, I’m not going to give up and lose my belief in people’s capacity to change their behavior. Although I didn’t feel like it at 5:15 tonight I do still love my job.
Onto the next topic….I mentioned before I was shopping for ingredients for a potluck dish. It’s a Halloween themed potluck and I wanted something cute but not too complicated…you guys know how I feel about complicated recipes (not good). Thankfully a Pinterest search revealed this Mummy Veggie Dip and when I saw it I knew it was something I could execute. This is a picture of the inspiration.
I didn’t follow the recipe included (because I never do), just used cream cheese, green onions, spinach, and red peppers. I couldn’t find piping tips so I just used a ziploc bag and it was a little challenging but I eventually got it to work.
It’s definitely not an exact replica but I’m going to put it in the category of Pinterest wins, rather than Pinterest fails. I’m not gonna lie, I’m pretty proud of it 😀 Well, today has been a crazy long day. Left work late, shopping for ingredients, didn’t get home until almost 6:30 then by the time this little project was complete it was about 8:00, writing a post, and finishing up this episode of Project Runway leads me right into bed time…..Good Night!
