Bunnies and brass

July 31st, 2018 at 01:34 pm

I spent a lot of time over the weekend polishing my brass door knobs, believe it or not. But they do look great. It took a lot of polishing to remove 23+ years of tarnish. I don't know how long the "new" look will last, but it does look like new right now.

I've discovered that I now have THREE bunnies living in the yard: 2 in back and 1 in front. I love watching them; they will happily munch on grass or just about anything, so I'm not too worried about my flowering annuals because it's a pretty big yard. They come out pretty reliably every dusk.

The co-owners at work belong to a CSA, and lately they've been bringing in assorted produce each week for anyone who wants to help themselves: cucumbers, zucchini, corn and eggplant so far. Smile

With August right around the corner, I'm coming up on my 1-year anniversary (end of September) at my job. I plan to ask if we could now put me on my company's payroll, which would be possible now without having to pay the agency a commission. Once that's done, I'd like to ask for a raise and if I can contribute to a 401k. My manager had previously indicated this was a possibility, but then he didn't say anything and I didn't pursue it because I know if we did not wait the full year, the company would have to pay extra to hire me outright.

    Will you also get health insurance if on the company payroll?

    Best of luck with that plan!

    Thanks, Dido. Debtfreeme, my company is so small it doesn't have to offer health insurance to its employees, who are largely contract workers; when I was working f/t, my manager had suggested the possibility that I might be able to go on company payroll and then the company would pay half my premiums via Affordable Care Act. I doubt that offer would still be on the table now since I'm p/t

    Congrats on the work anniversary! Fingers crossed that you get hired on to their payroll.
