I have recently started a new career as an Administrative Assistant (I prefer Office Diva) for a small, but growing, company. I love many types of crafts, but am currently enjoying card making. I'm a font and e-mail junkie. I also enjoy shopping, junking, and riding on the back of our motorcycle.
I joined the Rec Center. NEVER in my life did I expect to be putting all of those words, in that order, in the same sentence. I'm doing something called "The Lunch Crunch". It's a series of 45 second workouts with a jog (HA!) around the gym in between. Sometimes it's killer. Sometimes it's not so bad. The only bad thing is the time of day. I sweat and my hair goes flat. Ugh. The good part? It's a small group, so sometimes it's like having a personal trainer. Love that. Right now I suck. I'm so disappointed that I've lost everything I had when I was kickboxing. But like I told the instructor - I want to get that back. I want to be that strong again. I can do this.
I bought a tree on Craigslist this summer. Sight unseen. I'd say I got pretty dang lucky. It's HUGE and I love it! Not the frasier fir I had picked out (and couldn't afford), but very happy with it, just the same.
Here are a few decorative highlights.
I've been going through a bunch of saved emails, mostly blogs, over the past week. I've found that people take a lot of pictures of flowers. I feel like a traitor to my gender for admitting this, but I'm not into flowers. At all. I don't own any floral print clothing. There is nothing floral or plant-like in my home. THere are no flowers in my yard. The last time my husband bought me flowers, I got mad at him.
I'm not into angels or butterflies either.
Well, there you have it. One of the random posts I promised in the previous post.
When I started this blog, I wanted it to be a place for me to show what I'd made. I thought it should have "quality" posts. Posts with "substance". But that quickly became a chore. I thougnt I always needed a photo to coordinatewith me content.
But now it's a new year and I have a new plan. If you haven't given up on following me, thanks. I've decided that my random thoughts want a place to be heard. So, sometimes there will be crafty posts and someday there will be posts like the one I'm about to post with a different heading.
Whatever the case, stay with me, and leave comments. I love comments. Even the negative ones.
As for the current background, I'll try to get that changed. Soon. I also have Christmas pictures I want to post.
