Nicole and Patti were the staff working today. When I arrived Morgan was on his way out for the day.

Daniel called in sick so only Angus and I were only Clients at work this day.

I was working on a task for the dry erase sandwich board at writing and designing with liquid chalk new October updates.

I made a concept design on a napkin and some information on post-it notes.

The staff members recorded a video for FaceBook of Scentsy Basket Draw, I was with Emma in speaking roles. I reached into the paper slips, dug around and drew the slip for Dawn Thompson, who was the winner of the draw.

Later after that, Emma headed out for the day with Michael.

Amanda came in on her day off to give out some sweets for a few minutes. When Angus knew he was getting baked goods, he was very motivated to get the dishes done.

We all enjoyed Amanda’s baking: Angus, Nicole and Patti and I.

Nicole and Patti did various tasks with cash register, drinks, snacks and other things.

Morgan, Duncan and I worked the morning shift today. Duncan had his cleaning duty using a broom and mop. Morgan worked within the Laundromat with the washers, dryers and the folding.

I revised the Clothes Inventory List to reduce the size of the original from 3 pages to 1 Page layout.

I was organizing books on the shelves and getting kids’ books to fill in the blank spaces.

I made up a Price sign for the Ice Skates for the Thrift store using Excel program.

Later on I did various copies for Laundry information. Paper sections left over were repurposed into Slips that can be used at a later date on Laundry Bags.

Daniel came in today for his afternoon shift and he seemed to be doing well now.
