It's Monday morning, a few days before New Year's Eve, and Henna has just arrived in her office - Henriched Interior Designs.
Carly: It was wonderful. I hope you enjoyed yours.
Henna: I did. My mother cooked mostly everything for Christmas. My sisters and niece came over. We had a good time, so it was nice.
Henna: Good for you. I don't have big plans. Maybe a bottle of champagne while I'm curled up in front of the television with a book. It's cozy and peaceful.
Carly: I'm surprised you weren't invited out for the evening.
Henna: I was, but I don't feel like going out. I just want to enjoy relaxing.
Henna: Yes, I got a refill in my cup and a fresh cup for you. I already added the caramel flavored cream you like while I was there.
Carly: Thank you! I started to stop there myself, but I didn't want to be late. Besides, those baked goods always call to me.
Henna (smiling): They are delicious and I think they were waving at me. But I had to resist. Well, here's your coffee.
Henna sets down the cup of coffee she picked up for Carly and tells her she's going to head to her office.
Carly: Okay. I'll be just a couple of minutes.
Henna: In ten minutes will be fine, enjoy some of your coffee before it cools down. It probably only managed to stay so hot because of this warm weather we're having.
Carly: Okay. Ten minutes.
After 10 minutes exactly, Carly comes in and has a seat to start meeting with Henna.
Carly: That's a win win for us and him. Free advertising.
Henna: Yes, it is. I hope it pays off. I'll bring business cards. Please make sure you have a supply in case you happen to overhear anyone ask for one or asking about what we do.
Carly: I will.
Carly: I'll pull it from the shared drive and get it over. Do you think the Richmond account will move forward? They seem to keep changing their minds about where they want to be located.
Henna: I know. This is number three and my third floor plan. However, we have a sizable deposit, so I think we'll at least be retained until they are ready to start construction.
Henna (laughing): At the rate they are going, you won't have a choice but to wait.
Carly (starts laughing too): I guess you're right. Then I won't hold my breath.
Henna: I also need you to send this check out to make the deposit for the furniture order for the MacDougal job. Their check to us cleared, so we can get that done.
Carly: I'll pull up the account and put a copy of the order specifications in the envelope so they won't mix anything up.
Henna: Okay. And please update the accounting file for that job to note we sent the deposit. I'll reconcile when the statement comes in.
Carly: Great! I'll take care of it.
Henna: Thank you for all of your help.
Carly heads back to her desk to get to work and Henna starts working too.
It's so exciting. Select Spaces is finally ready to open. They were planning to open right before Christmas, but decided they may get a better turnout when people are in the partying mood right before New Year's. We'll see how it goes.
It's almost time for 2016. Do you have big plans? ~ Jaye
