New Job!

On Thursday, October 27th, I began my new job at Alexian Village on Signal Mountain, Tennessee. Thus far, things are going pretty well. I'm a waitress who gets more than $2.19, thankfully! The drive up the mountain each morning is beautiful; it takes me about an hour to get there. The colors in the leaves are astonishing. If only I could video my drive! It's an incredible blur of reds, oranges, yellows, browns and greens. I love this time of year!

Below is a photo of the dining area in which I work full-time. It can be pretty hectic sometimes. Quite a beautiful setup though, I must admit.

Here's a photo of what I see from the dining room windows. It's much more beautiful in person. The forest behind the buildings looks as if it's untouched.

One of the cool things about my new job is that they let me dress up for Halloween this year. Apparently, it'll be an on-going thing for the coming years as well.

I definitely took advantage of the opportunity to sport a costume. I decided on being a steampunk elf.

I hope everyone had a fun, eventful Halloween. I spent mine giving out candy to about thirty children and playing board games with a couple of friends. We ate a nice dinner together and later dined on some candy... once we were sure the kids had stopped knocking on the door, of course!

I can't wait to see what lies ahead for next October!

Wishing you a wonderful November,
