Imma see if I can't keep this steady journal updating going for a while.
My brother (Virgil "Brandon" Hillard) got a job at Starbucks. Yay! But he has to work all Thanksgiving. Boo. I'm still happy for him, though. He'll be getting time-and-a-half, or $12/hr, to make up for it. =] He's working at the Delaware 1-95 welcome center, if that's what it's called. So if you ever pass by there and see this lanky black guy with long hair, a goatee, and guages in his ears, tell him hi! I'm kind of interested in the workings of Starbucks. There's, like, a fajillion combinations of drinks he'll have to learn how to make, so it's not as easy as getting right to work like some jobs. I think he'll be fine, but he's already talking about working somewhere else, haha. He's previously been employed by BJ's and Hot Topic, all for less than six months. I think he's going to be one of those guys whose held a dozen different jobs, haha, HAVE ALL THE JOBS.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving! That makes me happy. Tonight I'm going to make the dough for the dinner rolls and freeze them. Then I'll thaw and bake them tomorrow before dinner. In addition to that I'll be baking a Quebequois tarte au sucre (sugar pie), pumpkin pie, and two of my seemingly famous cheesecake pies. I like baking and cooking <3 I made ratatouille and pasta for dinner tonight. Wish I'd taken a picture.
I sold my first thing on Etsy last night! A custom pug keychain for a lady who has a pug. I hope she likes it, and I hope I get more sales! Every little bit helps for sure. Hopefully tomorrow I can get a bunch more of my keychains photographed and listed, along with the Santa hats I made. I don't mind working at home on holidays. It's fun, and I can leave work whenever I feel like it, haha.
If any of my local friends don't have anywhere to go for Thanksgiving, allow me to extend and invite to my house! For serious. I invite people over every year, there's always plenty of food and fun to share. =]
