I'm so excited! I got a phone call today from a child daycare center where I had submitted a job application. I have an interview Thursday morning!
Edited to add: I had the interview today, and I think it went very well. However, it was not for a full time job as I the ad led me to believe, and pay is only $7.00 per hour! I would still like the job as unemployment will pay the difference in my wages and what I will be getting on unemployment compensation, but it does take the excitement down a bit.
I'm a little nervous. I want to say all the right things so that I make a good impression!
I have never worked in a daycare before, but raised three pretty good kids and managed to keep them healthy. I also used to take my turn in the church nursery when my kids were younger. I hope they think that will be enough experience!
I am getting a good feeling about this job. I think that I would love to work with children! Please pray for me that it goes well.
It's been an exciting week on the whole so far. On Sunday, my son asked me what I thought was flying in the sky. Was it a big hawk? As soon as my youngest son said it had a white head, I knew what it was!
There is an eagle's nest about 2-3 miles downriver. I know exactly where this nest is, and although I didn't take this picture, it is the same eagle. Did you know that eagles are making a comeback? Hard to believe that they are living here in northwest Ohio! They like to live near bodies of water, so the closer you get to Lake Erie, the more there are.
Here is another picture of the eagle. Not my pic though.
This is the picture I took. Darn, the little booger wouldn't stay still! He flew quite close a couple times, but then as quick as can be, he would be gone again.
Seconds after I took the picture above, he was only a tiny speck in the sky. Click on the picture to enlarge it. Can you see him? He is that tiny dot just slightly left of the very center of the picture.
It was so exciting to actually see the eagle! They are magnificent birds. I have seen him flying over my part of the river only once before, and last year, I saw an eagle sitting in a field near the Maumee River. I think it was the eagle that roosts in the next county over.
On Monday night, my son came home from work, then grabbed the camera and took off outside. Look what he found! See those five sets of eyes glowing in the dark?
Can you see them? This picture is a little lighter. I knew that that deer were coming into the yard, but had never actually seen one, only the evidence they left. He said they didn't take off even though he snapped three pictures! Of course, by the time I ran out there in my robe, black socks and slippers, they were gone. Darn!
Today as my sons and I were taking boxes to the new place, I saw wild turkeys in a neighbor's yard! No, not this kind of turkey, thought they are a little wild at times.
Though this is a pic I found at Google Images, the ones I saw looked just like this! I think it is going to be so much fun to watch for wildlife near the new place. It's right across from some woods. I know that deer come there too because I found tracks in the snow right outside my front door!
Well that's all for my Wednesday Wonders! Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!
