While I was at Menards the other day to pick up some replacement fence panels for the yard, I found myself with a few bags of flower bulbs to plant for next Spring! I finally got my favorite, the Daffodil, in a mixed Daffodil variety bag. I also picked up some Crocus, also in a mixed variety bag. Super excited! I might go back and search for more flower bulbs to plant for the next year.
Today confirmed why I should keep a torque wrench in my car as I already have thought about doing so. I helped change a coworker’s tire today in the parking lot and it was so dang difficult with the pathetic tire iron provided by the manufacturer. This thing was barely a foot long, single bar tire iron. After several attempts also with a few switch-outs with another coworker, I managed to loosen all five lug nuts without hurting myself in the process. Successful and proud.
The afternoon shift today was a killer. I was on my toes the entire time. UnitedHealth group and PepsiCo did work. Between the afternoon shift and changing out a tire, I barely had time for a break today, ten minutes just about, just enough for a pack of migoreng. We finished off the rest of the sweet corn in the evening shift and even got some volunteers to box up some food in the Food Sort afterwards. As usual, my regulars always make my day at work. My regular Brad came in without a hat and I almost didn’t recognize him, lol. The Soul Sisters also made an appearance tonight, their once a month commitment; despite their name, the trio are all blond ladies; they’re the best! I also has another trio: the Kirby family, their first time with us.
I’ve been trying to enhance volunteer’s experience ever since I started. I’ve been giving my volunteer name tags as an effort to mingle and get to know all my volunteers. I’ve gotten positive feedback from doing so as of late. For the most part, volunteers like being known and recognized and I do too. I tie it with a sense of appreciation.
Long day tomorrow. Going in early for support-13 hour day coming up.
