This and That

Wow!! Really?! It's October already?! Where did the time go?! Work has been crazy, I mean really, it's CRAZY!!! The work environment here is totally different from that in the US. Although it's not mandatory, people here still stay late everyday and even come in during the weekend. I was totally shocked by how long the work hours are. I was so exhausted everyday after work that I could not function at all when I get home, not to mention I still have 30 boxes of stuff that needed me to sort through. Don't get me wrong, I love the job, just not the long work hours. So after two weeks of hard work, I decided to cut back the hours and work part time. I just can not handle the long hours right now.... One good thing about working is I got to walk 20 mins everyday to work, and I enjoy this walk very much. This is a tree on the way that is blooming like crazy~ Like me, it is trying so hard to hold onto the very last bit of summery days!!!

Life here is not all dull, though. A friend of ours told us about a very special place. It is a cafe for rabbit lovers! The owner is a rabbit lover and she wanted a place for rabbit owners to interact with each other, so she opened this cafe, and people would bring their rabbit here to social. Although I do not own a rabbit, it was so much fun to see all these furry little things running and hopping around while we enjoy our drinks. That was an unforgettable experience!! I would definitely come back again!!!
Although I was too exhausted to stitch during the time when I worked full time, I have been trying to catch up on my Mystery Sampler these past few days. One stitch at a time goes a long way, and I'm loving the process!! Hopefully I will be able to finish the main part and start working on the border by the end of this week~
