On the road again,

Wendy has monthly contests and one of the lucky winners of this month's prize is my very own self!!! I couldn't be happier to get my hands on a Dale pattern book. This does mean that I shall once and for all get over my fear of knitting with colors. So many gorgeous patterns in this book, I can't wait to see them with my own eyes. A huge thank you to Wendy for her generosity in having these monthly contests. To see more pictures of the Dale 126 book click HERE!

Some of you know that I work counting inventory, we work in all sorts of stores but right now both Carl and I are on a contract for all the Walmart stores in Eastern Canada. Since January 19th when this whole adventure started we have worked in 34 stores, by Jule 1st we will have counted in 42 more stores. By the end we will have visited 75 different Walmart stores. LOL! Now that's a lot of Walmart's in someone's life. Though the job is pretty neat getting to travel a bit, especially starting this week and the next months. It is annoying to answer everyday that NO I do not work at Walmart nor can I help you find any product in the store. Maybe some people never noticed that the associates wear blue vests with the word Walmart printed on them. That's what I started saying to the customers (usually the rude ones). My shirt is burgandy and says RGIS on it, in our team some have grey shirts but those are printed RGIS too. So when a customer is all annoyed because we are three auditors in one row and all wearing the same shirt they still ask each and everyone of us if we work in the store. We sometimes sound less polite than we should but can you see why?

This week our truck will be bring us the Quebec city, Levis and Beauport. All beautiful areas of Quebec but as usual it's not like we have time to visit anything. I usually check online for any yarn stores in the area, just in case we'd have time to stop by one. teehee!

Have a great week! :)
