I’m still on cloud-9 about becoming a mod on Reddit. I made one post today before I started at the office, it received 3 upvotes, and I’m hoping to build community engagement. This will be a learning curve. I shared the news with my friends and work friends; they all congratulated me and they’re so happy for me. I feel grateful.
I said this to Kathleen this morning, “I have to start drafting my newsletter (I’ve been lazy for the past month, LOL!) and I’ll mention it there too. 😊 I was looking at Reddit, Inc. and they actually employ people. Maybe if moderating goes well and once I get some other experience up my sleeve, maybe Reddit, Inc. could be a possibility. One can only dream! 😉 LOL!”
She replied, “A future with Reddit, Inc. Sounds like a great dream!” So grateful for the support too.
Tomorrow at sunset Rosh Hashanah begins. I didn’t get the brisket at Trader Joe’s last week (Sunday) because I thought $35 for 3.5 pounds was a lot. I thought I’d look at Wegman’s, but Wegman’s didn’t have it. After the office, I went to Giant and they had it. They only had 5 lbs for $42. I asked some people if I could substitute something else for brisket, and someone recommended seeing the butcher. Sadly, the butcher doesn’t work on Thursdays.
I decided I would go with the 5 lbs. I’m going to Trader Joe’s on Saturday, but I didn’t want to risk it being out. Giant was cheaper anyway… it was $7.50/lb instead of $11/lb and while it’s two pounds more, I can freeze it. I was chatting with an older woman about this and she smiled, “yes, freezing would be your best bet.” I explained this was my first Rosh Hashana that I was cooking for, she was also going to be celebrating, she smiled and wished me well. A few men who recommended me going to the butcher wished me well with my cooking endeavor. So thankful for the kindness.
I’m thankful for my friends and family as well. I’m also thankful that the days are getting cooler and shorter. Some of the leaves began to change as well!
What are you thankful for today?
