Marianne is a social worker and before she fell, she had applied for a job in Nunavut and had been accepted if she could meet certain conditions by providing references and paperwork. Well, even though she had the surgery, she met her obligations. Last weekend she let me know she had been accepted for the job.
Yesterday she phoned and told me she is leaving February 18th. She will keep her house and possibly return when she has leave. She will be in the Baffin Island area. What a great opportunity for her. She will be making good money, possibly come home for visits and get to enjoy the beauty of Canada's North.
Congratulations, Marianne. Though I will miss your company, I wish you all the best on your new adventure.
What will this mean for my blogging friends? I'm hoping she will send lots of photos through email that I can share with you. Possibly she will be able to tell a few tales as well. She has worked in Nunavut before and so she knows what she's up against. I think this is a marvelous opportunity and almost wish that I was going with her, but then I couldn't bear to leave here because of family and my new little Dakota.
Enjoy the weekend, my friends. We are to have warmer weather and I'm hoping that we can get out with the grandsons and Dakota for some fresh air and sunshine. If we do, I will be sure to take along the camera. ~Blessings, Mary~
