It was one of those days where I wouldn't have had time to work even if I wanted to. Fortunately everything went well and nothing was forgotten.
I had an encouraging interview with JTS Direct, just ten miles away in Hartland. They are hiring several positions in the printing industry, so if you're looking for work . . .
Volunteered two and a half hours at the Waukesha Food Pantry. Next month at this time it will have moved to the new Sentry Drive location a block or so north of Sunset Drive.
Immediately after the Pantry I assisted another Vincentian with a St. Vincent home visit to a family needing food and other help.
The visit took a little longer than expected, so now I was running a little behind for serving the meal at Hope Center. Our St. William Conference of St. Vincent de Paul helps with the meal a couple times a year. My job was to pick up 6 gallons of milk, Walgreens had it on sale, but I also hung around long enough to serve it. I couldn't stay to do the dishes though because the St. Vincent Council Meeting I was attending started at 6:30 in the Goodwill Community Center.
Arrived home for the day with just enough daylight left for the blog to take me for a walk around the neighborhood.
Satisfying work for just 25 cents a day - I found a quarter on the ground at Walgreens. But I just looked at the clock, it's after 11:30 and I have to get to bed. Have a really busy day tomorrow.
