Kindness Matters

Whirlwinddd, guess who’s employed seven days a week?! This wild one. Going to be a bumpy ride to Christmastime, then off to see the country! Serving on weekends is just as you’d anticipate, but getting to meet travelers from all around is a HUGE perk. I had my first mega oops and forgot to put in an order for a table’s appetizers, entrees they’re called here, so so thankful for gracious customers.

On the Lord of the Rings side of things, I saw (one of) Peter Jackson’s houses while on a casual stroll. Not everyday! Each day brings something new, but I suppose that’s life. Pretty cool. I am grateful for kindness. For smiles. For hope. For wine and warm weather.
