Work Incentive

A few weeks ago I created this game to give the cashiers at work some incentive to balance their tills each day. Each cashier colored their own sheep and then started at the bottom of the mountain. Every time they balanced their till perfectly they moved up a level, climbing up the mountain. The first to become a "peak performer" won a prize. We played twice and two people won $25.00 gift cards. It was really fun to see how excited everyone could be about a little competition. They're all also really creative as you can see by all the different sheep (and dinosaur).

These five at the top are the cashier leads and our cash control manager Mike (the wolf in sheep's clothing). It goes from left to right: Me, Christina, Tonia, Mike, and on the bottom is Farina.

We're starting to work on a new game for December where each cashier's reindeer races around the world collecting prizes from different countries.

Our First Thanksgiving

This year was mine and Harrison's first time making Thanksgiving dinner for ourselves...

I'd say it was a success. We made fish for the first time (sole and salmon)

and had a rib eye steak, mashed potatoes from scratch, cheeses, and cherry tomatoes wrapped in bacon, yummy!

Here's Lama enjoying his T-day dinner.

A couple weeks ago he thought he'd join us for dinner as well and I took these pictures.

Patiently waiting.

C'mon, serve that chicken already!
