Friday Freestyles... The Christmas in July Edition


Friday!

Glory!!

And it's PAYDAY!! And I had a BONUS on my paycheck.

Man, when I saw that on my statement, I should've just shut my computer down and gone on home, because the blinds of my mind were half shut after that.

I spend a few moments with my eyes closed, imagining myself balling until I fall! Then I come back to reality. Bills need to paid. But it's fun to ball in my mind! 

But alas, I had some training today, and my midyear workplace review.  I wasn't all that interested in either one, and just hoping the midyear review was fine. And all went well. Workplace review was great!

I really should have gone on home then, because the rest of the day has been a blur.  I didn't have anything to do, so there was some good convo going on.

I brought in some cookies today. As usual, they disappeared fast. This causes an issue sometimes. People get antsy over FREE stuff. Not my fault you didn't get any. NOPE. There will be more cookies.

However, we have interesting activities in the new cubicle area. One of  my coworkers, LadyCee, has this knack for hospitality. I like to support these ventures. Anything to build morale.

So this month was Christmas in July, and the cabinet areas were decorated.  Here are a  few pictures.



There was even a cookie contest!

Lady Cee made snickerdoodles!

I made oatmeal cranberry walnut cookies. And Lady M made rosemary lemon cookies.

There were a gazillion judges, each standing around tasting and pontificating like they were some real judges off the Food Network. It don't take all that. The contest took a good hour or so.

I won. Yay!

I won a christmas bell. And I went home and preceded to unnerve Sister Callie and Mitch. Poor cats. They were looking at me like "What the world?"

It was a good time. And it built morale.

And that's a good thing.

That's it for me. A short post which I meant to post this morning. But it's up now.

Sweepstakes is still on and popping. We have 15 more days!  Two $100 gift cards up for grab so far, and we are fast on our way to 3!  I am hoping there will be at least 4.

Comment for your chance to win.

Have a good weekend! On purpose!

  3. I'm kinda religious and definitely spiritual but, Christmas in July? Dude. I recently picked up a used book titled "The Devil's Heaven". I hope this in no evil, demonic, anti-Christmas!!!

    Just playing. I hope you and your associates had a good time & thought a little on Jesus too.

    1. You have heard of Christmas in July, haven't you? Stores around my city have "Christmas in July" sales. This was all good fun. I work in an environment that can be negative at times, and I support anyone wants to do things to uplift morale.

    1. Man, leave my bell alone. That was like winning a million dollar bell. I will post a picture of it.

      But the cats are side-eyeing that bell. They want me to stop ringing it. It sounds like a ship coming in to harbor.

  10. Ooh please do not say the C word...Christmas.. I know I'm being negative but I need a break from all these holidays sometimes.. Can't we celebrate them every year? Sometimes these man made obligatory holidays are too much for me.

  11. Your cookies look gooooooodt!!! I don't know if I would even enter a contest you were putting your cookies in. LOL!! I switched schools (and grades) and I am hoping that we have some morale boosting activities. The last school I worked at was like the walking dead. Lawd it was bleak. I'm praying this school will be better.
