Productive, if not employed

I've been busy.

My resume has been updated. I've re-submitted or applied to four temporary agencies, sent the resume to friends who might help me network (and got at least one nibble from that).

I have a preliminary interview for Wednesday, from a submission for a jobs listing I found online, though it's probably a sales position (not my strong point).

I have applied online for unemployment ("unenjoyment" as my friend Nathan calls it). That's a first. But as we have a mortgage I am taking no chances...not in this economy.

Yesterday I also made tapioca pudding. It's fantastic, if I say so myself. (We shared some with the neighbors.) I made a good dinner--ziti with mushrooms and carrots and sauce, with cheese.

Not much has been done with the lace, but I've been trying a new sock pattern, something especially for variegated yarns, with an "aforethought" heel. It's out of Sensational Knitted Socks (Charlene Schurch).

Today's dinner will probably be something very sturdy and comforting, too. The weather is dreary; freezing rain and sleet. March is still roaring.

We're right there with you. My hub is laid off right now too. Hopefully, just a temporary layoff.

I can't picture you ever *not* being productive! I'm glad you're keeping your spirits up, and I think you'll find something.
