Ok, grab a cup of tea if you dare….
In July, our secretary Jennifer moved to Florida. This, with a husband and four children, is a lot of work! A company that will not be named has an employee who did not know how to work the computer to get Jen and the Renaissance phonelines connected. However, I was assured it would happen…
In addition, three weeks ago, my landlord came and told me that our building has been sold; it is to be torn down and replaced with “beautiful luxury” apartments. I find the pond and the deer that greet me a “luxury”- guess we have two differing viewpoints. After sixteen years Renaissance now needed to do like the monarchs that carry our packages…. There has been a lot of looking and a lot of prayer, and I have leased a new office!!! It is about a mile from our current location. We expect to move there the week of September 13. Don’t worry the monarchs will show you the way once it is safe for them to do so.
We have found an excellent product manager at the previously mentioned phone company who seems very willing (and able with her computer) to help us with the phone systems, and I hope these will be up and running in the next seven days😊!
Please bear with us in this transition. Your call will be returned as quickly as we can. If you see a call from a blocked number, or a Florida number, that is likely to be Jen or me calling you. Please answer, or leave a time when you will be available. Or email Jen at firstname.lastname@example.org or me at email@example.com.
And if a friend or acquaintance says her call has not been returned as quickly as she expected, please tell her about these issues we are having and encourage her to try again. Or let us know the problem; we want to fix it.
As you can guess, your most disorganized dietitian is stressed about all this stuff. AND we have run out of food plan books in the middle of this! I need to revise edition one; so, it may be a couple of weeks before we can get that printed and mailed to you.
And – horror of horrors! – strawberry season is officially ended! The berries are beginning to get soft spots and color changes; it is time to move on to blackberries, blueberries, nectarines, peaches and plums! And watermelon is still good. Watermelon is a good source of vitamin C and contains decent amounts of potassium, copper, vitamin B5, and vitamin A (from beta carotene). Your nectarines and peaches also have potassium, Vitamin C and B vitamins….. but wait for it – they have carotenoids, fiber and iron to boot! Please remember to eat your fruit and hopefully next week I will be back to my normal dietitian impossible self!
Blessings to you,
