15th Workiversary

I don’t often talk about my “day job”, but today is 15 years to the day since I started working for Seattle Children’s Hospital.  This is a photo of me from about that time from my old blog site.

Unfortunately it will be the last.  I found out yesterday that Children’s is not going to renew our contract.  We are not profitable, and Children’s is having financial issues.  So we are out on of leap day.  We have hopes that Skagit Valley Hospital will pick up our contract, but these are scary and sad times for me.

In farm news, I am enjoying the dahlias from tubers Kim gave me.  They are beautiful.

And it is looking like we may have 2 young peacocks and 2 young peahens.  And it is looking like the white one is one of the peacocks (which is what I want).

I have been canning peaches like crazy, around endocrinology appointments and meals with Mom and Al.  I have 26 quarts canned, and it has barely put a dent in the peaches that we have.

Finally I saw this on the Sedro-Woolley history calendar I have from yesterday.  I wish this rail line still existed.

That is all for today.  I am wore out.

    Hard news about the job. Will hope for good news soon. I’d love to relieve you of some of your peaches!!! They were so hard to find or expensive here that I am just freezing our fresh prunes instead.

    Donna, I’m so sorry about your job. I just re-read what you wrote. It seems so sad.
    Hang in there dear friend. I’m anxious for Thursday.

    I forgot to mention that your peachicks are looking very good. I hope, too, that the white one is a cock. They are all pretty!

    Also – your dahlias are beautiful!
