Spoils of Work

In my past three days of work, I have amassed:

  • One large container of lentil soup
  • One loaf “Woodstock” bread
  • One loaf “Asiago Pesto” bread
  • One loaf "Extreme Cinnamon” bread (my brother ate this one!)
  • Two Chocolate Peanut Butter cookies
  • One Oatmeal Raisin cookie (um. I ate this right quick)
  • One Chocolate Bliss cookie
  • One Double Chocolate muffin
  • One Lemon Poppyseed muffin
  • One Cherry Walnut scone
  • Three Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Walnut cookies

And that’s not even counting the slices of bread that are forced upon me I try as part of my job accidentally make their way into my mouth during the day. *Sigh*. Actually, at work, I’m not eating nearly as much as I imagined I would be. It’s hard to slice for yourself when there’s six expectant people at the bread board, and we’re only allowed to “chew” in the back anyway. But I don’t know what I’m going to do with all of this! Luckily it freezes well…

Aside from that slight negative, working at Great Harvest is going really well. It’s a lot more challenging than I expected – there’s so much to have to remember! But everyone is so nice there, and the advantage of being new is that I get a lot of leeway with everything. Hopefully I can learn it all before the new-ness wears off!

It’s also so wonderful to be working somewhere that cares so much about what they are producing. Everyone is so proud of the products that are being sold, and they well should be. Everything is all natural, there are no preservatives, and even the flour is milled in the store – all the flour that’s used is no more than 4 days old! I have no problem being excited to tell customers about the bread, because it is exciting.

Alright, enough about work.

In other news, I registered for another Half-Marathon, the Detroit Free Press Marathon. Part of me is like, “Wtf, self?” And the other part is really excited, so. At least I break even :)

Tomorrow, I’m running the Big House Big Heart 10k. It finishes on the 50 yard line of the University of Michigan Stadium, something I’m sure many people are excited about. A college (or any, really) football fan I am not, so I really could care less. However, this is my first 10k since my first running experience ever, Thanksgiving of last year, so I’m excited to see how I’ve improved over the past (almost) year :)

Wish me luck…!
