MAKE IT A GREAT DAY: Wednesday & “A Carillon Christmas”

I cannot believe we are to reach 54 degrees today. Right now, it is 50 degrees, and I am loving it. The past few days have been stunningly beautiful with the bright sunshine spending most of the day with us.

Today, I start my five-week stint in the Round House (Transportation Museum) at The Park running concessions.

I will leave on No. 17 at 2:04 PM (unless I have the slow bus driver) and arrive around 2:40 PM before my 3:30 PM shift begins. I am expecting the evening to be busy as it will give many locals and their Thanksgiving guests something delightful to do. I know Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving will be a huge crowd. The big plus is that the temperatures will be hanging in the mid-50s for the remainder of this week, with Thanksgiving hitting almost 60.

My Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday shifts run until 10:00 PM. Unfortunately, No. 18 does not arrive until 11:23 PM but I can always keep busy while waiting. Fridays and Saturdays I work from 3:30 PM until 11:00 PM. On these nights I won’t return home until almost midnight. Sundays and Tuesdays are completely devoted to full days of packed teaching. It looks grueling in writing but it’s only for five weeks and it will keep me occupied.

I have been sleeping well the past several nights and adjusting to no early shifts at The Park. This will allow me to sleep a little more during the mornings since I will have two late nights of teaching and returning home late on the remaining five nights.

I am going to walk the dogs (one or two at a time), and then get ready for the first shift of “A Carillon Christmas.”

Make it a great day!
