I need to go to the library. No, I don't have any overdue books...I just really want to go and browse around. This means not going with all 3 kiddos. So, I will sneak over there while they are at school. I want to get some books on tape, something crafty for me and maybe a cookbook from a different country. I love those. Just feel the need to nose around.

Good things are happening...I finished a project I've been thinking about for some time. Nothing too involved but a gift for a little someone. I'm making another something for an inhouse someone.

I've started to imagine what I want to do with a project that has been on my mind for over 4 yrs. I think it's going to be fun and hopefully, a publisher will too.

I still need to send off some sample work to a company I'm interested in. Wish me luck.

I found, yet another, place I want to submit work to...however, it requires the need to make something new. Am I lazy or something? Good grief, I need to just do it and not stress out.

In this long list of things, I decided to whittle down some of my volunteer work. Basically, I'm going to volunteer more at our church and get things ready for a trip to CA. I want to have all my ducks lined up in a row for some big transitions. It might be over 1 yr to get it all worked out, but it's being planned. Vague, yes, I know.

Anyway, I'm glad to be more of myself of late and just not feeling like I'm under a hot wire. I still wish I'd win the lottery, but all in all, life is calm and not too stressful. I feel blessed and am working to spread the blessings to others.

It's late...

I'm getting tired but thought I'd put something down since I've been neglecting my poor blog. One of my goals (besides many others) is to get some of my pictures printed for Christmas gifts and so on. I cannot believe it's been nearly a year since we've had our little guy. Amazing! Time has passed much too fast and I'm so glad to be with my dear ones. It feels even more important with family being across the US...I do miss my family so much.

Well, this is a shorty. I made some brownies from scratch, only to realize I accidently put too much of salt and baking soda and they came out AWFUL. I made a wonderful icing to try and ease this effect, but after having 1 piece, my tummy is all yucky feeling. Maybe that's too much information...oh, well. It's tea time (and Tums) and off to bed. Good night, sleep tight and don't let the bed bugs bite (or ticks, as we are having an awful time with this...just don't jump in leaf piles around here!). Night, night!
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in the opposite direction.
