Good morning everyone and happy Sunday Salon! I am lucky enough to be enjoying a long (for me) weekend – I didn’t have to work yesterday! I haven’t announced this publicly yet, but here goes: I got a promotion at work, which is super exciting, so currently I’m working on a training and development program. So for these next four weeks I should be off every Saturday, which to me is beyond fabulous. As for my promotion goes, I work at a financial institution (a bank) and I’m being promoted from banker to branch manager. Which means, after my program is all said and done, when you go into a bank and say “I need to speak to the manager”, that person will be me! I’m excited but also a bit nervous because it is a huge responsibility which will entail working many hours and dealing with many stresses. But I feel ready for what’s to come and I know my training program – which is about 4 months long in total – will prepare me even further. So yay!

So what did I do with my time off yesterday? Absolutely nothing, which is the best ever! I laid out by the pool in the morning, came home and finished a book, ran a few errands, came home and finished another book, and by then it was time to get ready for church. After church, hubby and I went to our favorite local Mexican restaurant for dinner. It was a fabulous day. Today I think I will get some blog posts scheduled, maybe read a little, and try to meet a friend for lunch. I’m trying to enjoy as much time to myself as I can because once my new job actually starts in a few months I will be turning the vast majority of my energy and attention to work. So I need to enjoy this time while it lasts!

Oh, one more thing – I need to announce the winner of The Leftovers by Tom Perotta! The winner is Angel from Mermaid Vision Books! Congratulations Angel! I have sent you an email letting you know. 🙂

What are you up to this lovely Sunday?
