She starts her first real job today.  She got hired at the one and only place she ever applied.  It’s part time, but they pay several dollars an hour over minimum wage and give a 15% employee discount.

She’s working at the little deli/bakery/bulkfoods store in the town where Pip and Mop Top live. It’s an adorable little country store owned and largely staffed by ladies from an old fashioned denomination in our area that is similar in many ways to older Mennonite groups.  Their preacher used to live up the road from us and he, my husband and one other neighbor man used to have Bible studies together about once a month, and the girls have done both babysitting and housecleaning for the family, so we think that helped her get the job, besides her own people skills, which are stellar.

She had intended to apply at the library once Pip left, but the broken leg interfered with that, as the job she’d have started with would have required a lot of kneeling to shelve the childrens’ books,  which she was unable to do until the loose screw in her knee was removed and the latest incisions healed.

I’m excited about the discount as the store carries freshly ground almond and peanut butters, bulk oats and other grains, molasses, wild honey, and has a delightful nook of Doug and Melissa toys to warm a grandmother’s heart.
