I am aware that I am less than some people prefer me to be,
but most people are unaware that I am so much more than what they see.

Wednesday Rambling

I finally completed inventory on all of my Bob Ross class supplies. So now I know what I'm looking at as far as ordering in the near future. Here's hoping that I'll somehow have the money to do so. Next class is Saturday, and my all day demonstration is the following Saturday. I'm going to see if my cousin/assistant Tyler is available to take a few pics and some video on these days. This Saturday, I'll be giving two of my students a Joy of Painting attendance certificate for completing a dozen classes. We'll probably have some goodies too.

I came home from Pascagoula to find a raccoon hanging out in the driveway. Turns out that he's a regular visitor, along with his wife and kids. They eat cat food with the rest of the animals that come strolling up to the porch each day. I've decided that we're a soup kitchen for strays.

Speaking of soup kitchen, I'm hoping to find a place to volunteer on Christmas morning. I think I'm going to call Pascagoula's soup kitchen, Our Daily Bread, and see if they have something for me to do. I'm sure they'll be serving food on Christmas Day, so I imagine they need assistance of some kind. I emailed Penelope House Domestic Violence Shelter to see if they needed a volunteer but the email bounced back to me. Oh well, I'll be going down there on Friday to drop off clothing so I'll just talk to them when I get there.

I'm still looking for a part time weekday job. There is just nothing out there right now, not something that I'm physically capable of doing anyway. I hope something will come up soon. I've got to find something asap, as I am several months behind on bills at this point. I'm really hoping that the gig at Hobby Lobby will turn into a nice part time job. With their schedule, it's not going to be easy, but maybe I'll get lucky and have at least 10 students a month. Ultimately, I need about 40 to make it, but I'll take whatever I can get.

The weather is yucky here right now. They are saying that we could actually get snow flurries over the weekend, which only happens every four or five years on the Gulf Coast. It's not really like real snow, it's more equivelent to slushy ice that you would find in a snow cone. But we coastliners think it's cool nonetheless. I'll have the camera ready in case it happens.
