I got M.U.G.ged again today. Now I have one for every day of the week. Next goal= every week of the year. he he he… This one reads, “I just wanted to say thanks for all of your help. You are a wonderful partner who always does a great job. You are truly an asset to Starbucks.” 🙂

I wasn’t schedudled to work today but worked for 2 hours this morning to help out another partner that needed to leave early. The cafe was full when I arrived and we stayed steady and with a pretty much full cafe the whole time. We have a billboard on the highway so with the holiday travel season in full swing we get lots of holiday travelers. It’s nice to wish them a safe trip.

Tonight we do the set up for Christmas and I am SO excited!!! All the Christmas stuff is SO beautiful this year. Maybe I’ll post pictures here later. We “officially” roll out the Mint Brownie, Ginger Loaf and Cranberry Bliss Bar tomorrow morning, although we “unofficially” served them today. AND, we [4 of us] get to wear RED aprons beginning tomorrow as the new RED Campagin begins on Thursday.

“…(STARBUCKS) RED. Starting November 27, every time you buy a special (STARBUCKS) RED product, a contribution will be made to the Global Fund, to help save lives in Africa. It’s all part of our commitment to give back to the communities where we do business, which is a key component of Starbucks™ Shared Planet™.” read more…

Other retailers like Dell, Microsoft, Apple, GAP, etc., etc., etc. are also participating in the RED Campagin.

Work today was slow. I guess with school being out, people have already taken off for the holiday. We had several regular customers come it and say, “goodbye”. They were off for their holiday traveling and wouldn’t be back until next week– one even tipped us $20! The rush was late today and didn’t come until about 10:30-11:00 a.m. I guess people were sleeping in. Speaking of sleeping in– I plan to do that myself in the a.m. 🙂

I’m going to work tomorrow for a co-worker from 10:00 a.m. – noon, then tomorrow night, starting at 5:30, the set up!!! I can hardly wait! The new Christmas stuff is SO beautiful. The Cranberry Bliss Bars and Mint Brownies are in along with the Ginger Loaf, and so is the Christmas blend and all kinds of nifty Christmas gifts.

BIGGER Tom is coming home tomorrow but he will head off to PCC on Wednesday with his second family :-/ We will miss him at Thanksgiving. I’ve had to get REAL creative with our Christmas card this year since it has been nearly impossible to get us all together for a photograph.


Thursday morning’s weather looks chilly but clear for the 1/2 marathon and I’m so excited. It may very well be my last race for some time. This standing on my feet is really tough on the running. We shall see…
