Who knew Santa was a skydiver?

This last Saturday, Santa Claus jumped out of a plane and landed in St. Paul, Minnesota.
"Santa" was my best friends' husband, who's been a jumper and diving instructor for many years, besides teaching at the local college.

Last night, they sent me THIS video of his 15 minutes of Holiday fame...cool, huh? (Turn up your sound!)

Which came first?

Finally, the ANSWER to one of life's persistent questions.

This was easier when I didn't have time!

Wow...the end of my second week of being un-employed. How different it is to be jobless, when I've never had that luxury before....I'm contacting companies who make floral products I like using, but I could still end up working for my favorite store or something. The world of work is open..wow!
Ok, I know that's a boring subject, and uncomfortable to read about.

Here's a website you'll LOVE for its use of SNOW....lol

Not to worry, ok?

Ha! How odd life is, huh? For 38 years, I thought I'd be a florist forever...and here I am, looking for other work.
Amazing, no?

During the last four months in my "silk solitude', I've had time to realize that I'm tired of being a day-to-day florist. Still, it's what I know best, and many parts of it are things I love: customers, fresh flowers, plants, silks...hm, especially silks.

So, how do I transform those proclivities and that know-how into another job?
Something at the wholesale level, maybe? Perhaps a field-rep for a silk flower company? I don't even know WHAT I'm looking for...

If either of you have ideas, let me know, ok?
I'm home.

BTW, here's something I just found....a world SUNLIGHT map, with my compliments...lol
