Reading, customer service and Sia – Friday Link-Ups

Last night a sinus sickness took up residence in my head. Usually, when I’m about to get sick, my body gives off warning signs letting me know we’ve got about 24 hours until misery. Not this time. The day was fairly productive, I’d just finished a healthy dinner and BAM. Totally blocked up. By bedtime breathing through my nose was a joke. Who gets sick just in time for a long weekend? Maybe it will disappear as quickly as it appeared? Fingers crossed and catching up with my favorite Friday link-ups: Oh, Hey Friday, High Five for FridayFriday Favorites and Oh Hot Damn, This is My Jam (add’l links below)!

Favorite Customer Service This Week

Misfit. Both the clip and the wristband for my Misfit Flash broke within the last week and a half. I submitted an email through the company’s website, noting that I’d only purchased the product last month. I received an email confirming my request within an hour. Within less than 24 hours, Misfit was back in touch with me, providing a ticket/case number and form specifying what pieces I would like to replace. The following day I received a final email letting me know that the replacement pieces had been shipped to me, at no charge. All customer service should be so speedy and efficient! Thank you, Misfit!!!

Favorite Work of the Week

Finally getting around to weeding (most) of my herb garden. It was overrun and overdue. I haven’t made it to the parsley/basil section, yet, and the oregano/aloe section is only partially done… but the chives (garlic and onion), thyme (lemon), tarragon (some weird Mexican version of tarragon, since Florida isn’t hospitable to normal tarragon), rosemary and sage are much happier. I spoke kindly to the cilantro section, trying to coax the coriander seeds (dropped from the last batch) into growing, and popped in a few nasturtium seeds I found leftover from last summer. It’s always shocking how dramatic of an improvement weeding makes!

My apologies for a possibly disjointed collection this week. Sinus medicine has me a little foggy…
