So today I did the job interview for the data entry temp. job. The woman seemed impressed with my work history. Overall I think it went well. I have to wait for a call back for a second interview after the company hiring reviews my resume'.
But that's not really why I'm writing. Though I did want to tell my readers that I might have a job in the very near future, I wanted to tell about my journey to and from my interview.
I am horrible at following driving directions. Which is why owning a GPS is a godsend. However a GPS doesn't know that its sending you into a bad neighborhood, or as in today's case, a gravel road! I knew I'd be traveling country roads, and coming from Kentucky back roads are nothing to balk about. Though I refuse to drive them during winter storms. I'm use to up and down hills, one lane roads, shear drop offs, pot holes, and various animals crossing the road.
I saw all that today. It is beautiful country. But not once in my driving "career" have I saw a gravel road that wasn't just a long driveway - until today! It was a very beautiful country. I wish I had a camera with me to capture it. I'm going to have to get a little mini digital because lately I have saw many places I'd love to photograph but have no camera with me.
I went 5 miles on this gravel road which BTW I could not do over 15 mph because it was so rough. Well I could, but my husband wouldn't have been to happy with me ruining the front end of our car.
On the way back I asked for directions and found state route 35 toward Chillicothe to follow. It still led me to the back roads once I got close to our town. I didn't want to go all the way into Chillicothe or else I'd be backtracking to get home. But the exciting part on my return is that I saw a hawk swoop down into a corn field to catch prey. Hawks have a very powerful symbolic meaning. They mean vision, intuition, power, energy, leadership, and focus. I think seeing the hawk is a sign that we are were we are on the right track. I really wanted to get a picture of him. He sat there on the ground next to the corn field till I drove past him. I thanked him for his message and drove on so I didn't disturb his hunting.
