Rant and Rave Wednesday

Wednesday, June 10, 2009.....

Any readers following me on a regular basis know if it's Wednesday, it's time to Rant and Rave about the past week. Without further adieu, here are my Rants and Raves from the past week:

Rant: My encounter with the mean nasty lady at the local animal shelter.

Rave: Got around the mean nasty lady at animal shelter to get cute little gray kitty for sister.

Rave: Last night's experience in check-out line at grocery store. Cashier was friendly AND pointed out two things we could do to save extra $$. Because of him, we saved $8 on 2 items. I think I was really impressed because he was just so nice.

Rant: Talking to old co-worker who reminded me why I hated my last employer so. Our conversation also reminded me why I lost touch with her.

Rave: Hadn't worked out with trainer in 5 days and I'm not sore. Well...not yet....

Rave: Having willing participant over for dinner, a.k.a. good friend, to help test out recipes from my cooking experiment AND she's bringing bubbly.

Rave: I have brussel sprout plants for my garden. For those that don't know me, I crave brussel sprouts like most people crave chocolate.

That's it for me. How was your week? Any Rants and Raves you want to share? I would love to hear them or if you're doing your own Rant & Rave Wednesday, put your link in the comments section so others can read.

Rave: boss is out for a few days, as are some other people. Should be quiet.

Rave: My kitty seems to have bounced back completely from his Memorial Day woes.

Rave: Great yoga class last night.

Rant: my work projects continue to drag on endlessly

That is great about the cashier at the grocery store. What a good person, who must enjoy their job. $8 on 2 items is sweet!

Heather: The bubbly was so good, we had 2 bottles....

DB: Is there really such a thing as a great yoga class? I think not.

Sunshinemeg: The cashier was the BEST!

OP: Isn't it sad that a nice person is harder to find in society?

Emily: Yay for no more Saturday night shifts!

Congrats on finishing the projects early. I always seem to be scrambling.

Dropping in to report that the compost tumbler works, but you have to make sure the greens & browns are balanced correctly. (My dirt was kind of slimy & stinky.)

Also, you have been tagged for an old-fashioned meme, if you're interested.
