It’s a little exciting these days 🍇🍷

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

I got an email today about this job I did send my application to in California. Fine wine at Murphy Goode Winery 🍷🍇.

The email contained information about the withdrawals to which of over 5000 applicants who have advanced to the next withdrawal round.  And there are 17 persons that have been taken out, – but ….

….they will let out the information about who this 17 person are, little by little 😊. And they started today with the 6 first names and videos, and if I understood it all correctly, they will continue tomorrow with some new names, and then on Monday the last names will be published.

I’m a positive realist, so I need to admit I will probably be a tiny bit disappointed if I’m not on the list. At the same time as I know that my chance are really, really low and small when it comes to this job. And after I have watched the first videos application from this 6 first person I actually in a way know I’m not going to be on the list……even I really, really hope so 😊.

The videos was amazing, creative and funny, and I do really understand why they are on the finalists list 😊.

But still it’s a bit exciting, and I have actually some small butterflies in my stomach too. Butterflies with a wish that hopefully one of those next names on this list will be me 😊.

But I live in Europe, I can’t anything about making wine or grow up grapes threes 🍇. I’m 48 years old, and I haven’t exercised enough to carry 20 kilos either, just lift them 😅. And I think maybe it could be a boomer with this two different videos as well. And I did send in my application just one week before the deadline, and this job offer has actually been online since March 2021.

I needed to use a bit time to think and feel if this was something I really wanted to do, special because of my children and because when it come to this job I have no knowledge about it at all. I needed to think this so good through that I could before I did send in my application. It’s a bit stupid to send in an application to a job like this and then not be sure if you want it.

So,- this is actually just an information about how the “process” is going 😊. And of course I will let you know how it goes for me,- even I think I already know the answer on that one 😊. But yes, I still feel a bit excited anyway, and I can’t explain why 😊. And when it all comes to all,- I actually did took both the chance to apply as well as share it online. Just that is actually not to bad st all 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

Maybe, maybe not- I know in just one day or two 😊🍇🍷.

In one day or two I will actually get the answer if I’m one of the lucky ones that are in the finalists round to the job I did send my application to in California 🍇🍷. I need to admit I’m actually a bit excited, even I also in a way already know the answer 😊. But still I cross my fingers a bit 🤞.

Grapes, vines and me? 🍇🍷😊

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

As I mention in my last post I have sent in my application to a new job, to a kind of job I have never done before. Something I have never been working with. And it is not just that it’s a new and different job, it’s also in an other country, even an other continent then I’m living in at the moment 😊. I sent my application in June, the 23. June to be correct, and I have used a bit of time to think this through, this application and if this job is something I really want to do and have, and if it’s a job for me 🍇. And I think it is 😊.

A tiny “touch ” of the idea of what kind of job I have sent my application to 🍇🍷😊

I did found this available position one day in March 2021 when I was reading in a online newspaper 🗞. I was not looking after a new job at that point, this job just popped up with an article, because it is a quite a bit of an amazing job for the correct one (maybe me?) 😊🍷. And it was something with this job….I can’t actually explain what it was. The salary is one thing, but the fantastic experiences, all the new and exciting knowledge I can get in this “subject”, and a bit more then that too. A really new adventure in my life, that’s for sure 😊.

And maybe also because it is a job so totally different from what I have done before? Or maybe because I’m standing on a start line to a new area in my life, and feel so ready for some new, very new and different adventures in my life? I’m actually not sure. At the same time as I am.

I didn’t do very much else with the application at that time in March, then read the article and other information. But I couldn’t quite forget the job either. So I saved the link as my favourite and read through the different information, terms and conditions as well as private policy, and I have used a lots of thoughts around this job and application too 😊.

And in a strange way this job in it’s own way became a kind of dream job for me, a job I felt I at least needed to send in my application to, try to do my best to get. For one thing is for sure,- if I don’t try I will not get the job, even there’s very small chances that I will get the job if I try as well. But then I have at least tried 😊.

I have used closely 3 months to think about this, and also in the meantime try to create a good and creative video application. Because this company wanted the application in a video with a maximum time at 90 seconds ⏳. How to manage that? I wanted to say so much 😅.

In one way I did manage it, in another I didn’t. It became 2 different videos, one for my application and one where I try to “show” the company that I understand the terms and conditions for the job, and that I’m maybe the person they are looking for to this job 😊. And I did send in both videos, – maybe not a good thing to do? Maybe a good thing to do? I don’t know,- but I know I want the company to get the best and most correct impression of me, who I’m and what I in a way stand for, at least in a working situation 😊.

And the job? I’m having a small “dissertation” to you on purpose before I’m coming to the point know 😅😉

I have sent my application to Murphy Goode Winery in California 😁🍇🍷.

My application- of course it could been so much bette and different- but it’s a limit for how many times I was going to take and re- take the video. And for every time I tried I remember something more I wanted to “press” into this 90 second 😅. It is what it is, – it is at least a very really me 😅. I should have fixed my hair a bit better to btw, and used an other light as well,- but ok 😊

I know my chances to get this job is not very big. There are different things that not “goes in my favour”. My age,- I’m 48 years old. The positive things around my age is that there will be no more babies, my kids are young adults and living their own life now, and they can even be a part of this job if all goes well 🧡. I also have different work experiences as well as education that can be very useful and positive in this job just because of my age. And of course I wanted to “sell” that in to in the video, but I didn’t had any time for that 😅. And me,- the person I’m can be a really “fresh” touch in California. A tiny Norwegian “viking” woman, nice, sweet, not worried for hard work and so on 😊.

I’m living in Europe, and at the moment I don’t have any work or living residence in USA. It’s not the easiest to get now at days either because of the corona- situation. And because I’m living in Europe I can’t be a guest at the Murphy Goode Tasting Lounge in Healdsburg, CA during this summer either. I think to be a guest there would both give them and me a better and more correctly impression,- for me about the job, for them about me.

And,- what can I actually about making fine wine? I just like the taste of good wine, and I don’t like the taste of a not to good wine 🍷😊. So….that one is blank, empty, – how to make some nice and tasty wine? I have no idea…. On the other hand, – this can be something positive too,- there’s a lots of opportunities to “fill me up with all kinds of knowledge” about wine and grapes and so on 😊🍷.

And of course it could also have been a “boomer” to try to “sell me in” with to different videos 😳. One application and one “presentation”.

I have of course have some conversation with my children about this job application, and they support me as well as my closest friends I have included in the process too 🧡.

My “presentation” that I do understand the terms and conditions for this job, – unfortunately I couldn’t film it all,- so it became some few and short videos with some of the terms and conditions 😊. And also trying to “show” the company in a way who am I 😊.

Can you imagine me walking between vines in California? 🍇😊🍷

I can easily see myself in this job, at the farm, with the threes, in the wine basement, tasting wine and so on 🍷. I also know I would probably do a very good job too 😊. But what I really like about this job is that I will manage to create and see ( and taste as well) a product and result of the job I have done,- and that’s something I really like, – to actually see a product and result of my job, what I have been doing and working for, and hopefully make a lots of people happy as well 😊. Like when I’m knitting, teaching, painting or writing 😊. I see a product and a result- I like that a lot 😊. And maybe I “need” this job, but the job needs me a bit as well? 😊

Like I mention,- I know my possibility to getting this job very low, but if I haven’t tried at all, it wouldn’t be any possibility at all either. At least now it’s more then zero possibility, and then we see what’s happen 😊. At the moment I’m very relaxed to it all,- I’m probably more “stressed out” that I’m showing you my videos today… that’s feels bit out of my comfort zone to be honest….😳…..then the thoughts and dreams about working with wine and grapes in California 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

I have sent in my application to a new and very different job then I have ever done before. And that’s not all,- the job it’s not either in Spain, Norway or Europe 🍇. I have used a bit of time to think this through, if I should apply or not ….and slowly it became a dream I didn’t knew I had 😊. I did sent in my video application some days ago (you can find it in my post)…so now it is just to live my life, wait and see what happens 🍇😊🍷.

Goodbye June, you went fast too ☀️, and welcome peaceful July 🌞

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

It’s some weeks since I dropped by my blog now, but I haven’t had the time to prioritize my blog or writing during the moving process. I also needed to cancel my lessons with my students, but I manage my customer service agent job and online freelance work, and of course move, clean, get things in order in the new place, as well as get “out of order” from the old place 😊.

There was days in June I felt was a bit “rough at the edges”, but when I think back today I think it was mostly because some days felt a bit more demanding then others, something that’s actually normal 😊. It just didn’t felt “normal” “there and then” 😊. You probably know how some of “those” days can be ?

And yes of course menopause also have “a finger in the game” during some of those days that’s feels a bit “rough at the edges”. That one can really “fuck up” the brain now and then, but I will come back to that subject in an other text.

I’m now “well installed” in my new home. The firsts days in this new place went to cleaning because this place has been empty for over a year. Or that’s actually not true. During this year some mice have been living and frolicking a bit, so there has been a bit of cleaning up after them 🐭. But now all is clean and I’m ready for a new start, and calm down a bit, find a bit peace, and maybe try to make a kind of plan for my future too 😊.

I also needed to make our “old home” in order for the owner, and I delivered the key back to the owner yesterday 🔑. And that felt so good, even my children and me have had a marvellous time and some great years in that house, and many, many good memories, it felt good to actually “close the door”, – if I can say it that way. And it is also incredibly good to not need to have anything more with the owner of the house to do. The home/ house was perfect for me and my children during this years. But the owner…

The owner, – well, that’s a other story, not worth to use to much time to tell about. I’m just happy she did live fare away so I just needed to deal with her once a year. Except from now at days. Just let me put it this way,- There’s just some people that give you a very bad feeling no matter how good you are trying to be.

But June hasn’t just contained “moving, cleaning and work”. In between ther also has been a couple of others “events ” too. Maybe more like daily and small “events” , but isn’t it that in it’s own way create the day and days?

There has been some new cold showers 😅, literally, in this new place too. I don’t understand why cold showers are “dropping by” into my life now at days 🚿, but okay,- yesterday that one was fixed so hopefully it will not be to many cold showers for a while now 😊. To be honest I have checked the hot water a couple of times now, just to be sure it still there 😅.

My pavilion blew off just a few days after it was set up and fastened in my new place 😳🌬. That one made me a bit sad, because I had made a cozy corner outside on the roof terrace, but okay,- what to do? Then it is to try to find an other solution, and I got some very good help for that one yesterday 😊. So now I have an other kind of pavilion and I’m very happy for that 🥰.

Just yesterday was filled up with some small “events” that in it’s own way create the day. I got hot water in the shower 🚿, I got an super solution for the pavilion on the roof terrace 🌞 and I delivered back the key to a finish capital in my life 🧡.

And believe it or not,- there has even been some men “dropping by” in my life in June too 😳. Well,- I actually didn’t let then drop by, but that’s a tiny story for an other day. I can’t tell you all and everything today 😊.

I have swear a lot too in June 😅, and in general I don’t do that. I swore I would not have a car where I live now.  It can sometimes be completely hopeless to find a parking space and place 😳.  I must admit that I have cursed over it a few times lately 🤯- and I swear very rarely🤐. So the once who knows me very well also know that swearing isn’t my thing, but when I do, I’m very serious about it too 😅. And I know swearing doesn’t give me any parking place, but still some few not to nice words dropped out off my lips 😅. And for some strange reason I in a way “have” a car even that wasn’t the plan, my plan 😅.

Irene, my oldest son’s girlfriend, – she borrowed me her car for some few days so I could move some bags and boxes, but for some reason now she just want me to have the car here until she needs it, and I don’t know when that is, but it has been for a couple of weeks now 😅. I’m very grateful for that, but it’s still a challenge to find a parking place 🚗. At the same time I feel very lucky to have the possibility for using her car when I need 🧡.

I have also sent in an application for a new job. A very different job then from other jobs I have done before in my life, and it’s not just a very different job, but it’s a job that is even in an other continent then I’m living in at the moment 😉🍇. Of course I will tell you a bit more about that one too, just not today 😊.

I have also manage to finish a baby blanket to a good friend of my that’s expecting her first baby now at days 🤰🧶. I needed to wait some days with the painting, but I have also touched my paint brushes again the last days 🎨.

So June,- a month I felt now and then was a bit “rough at the edges” wasn’t to bad at all when I’m looking back today 😊. It was a month “touched ” by the daily life, ups and downs, changes and challenges, – that’s for sure 😊. But also a month I have a lots of things to be grateful for. A warm shower, a nice place to stay outdoors, a cozy place to live for a while, great friends and good people around me, work, food on the table and a bit more too 🧡.

And I can very soon welcome July 🧡, I hope it will be a calm and peaceful month without to many feelings of “rough at the edges”, and without to many changes, challenges and feelings of “down” days. Because often it’s actually just a feeling of a down day or happening, it’s not sure it was so bad after all when we get a bit distance to it 😊.

I don’t know what I can expect from July at all. I just know what I can hope, dream and wish for as well as work for. But as most of us know, – thing can change very fast, also the things we are working for. There will probably be some changes in one or another way as well as some challenges, but hopefully not to much and not to big. I feel I need to get my breath back a tiny bit. The two last months has been a bit hard and challenging in it’s own way, and it could be nice with a tiny break from that 😊🌞.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

And now I hopefully can say “See you soon “,- and actually see you a bit sooner then I have done lately 😊.

A cozy corner on my new roof terrace 😊

I have a so much to be Grateful for in June 🧡, even there was a couple of days I felt was a bit “rough at the edges”. I have fantastic friends, family and great people around me 🧡. I have hot water in the shower again 🚿, and a nice and cozy place to live and stay for a while 🧡. I’m not sure what July will bring into my life, but I wish the unknown July very welcome 💛.
