Good Morning and Happy Sunday! I love the randomness of our Northern Colorado spring weather. Yesterday there was a dusting of snow on the ground and in the trees along with a foggy sunrise. I'm sure many of you are saying "It's April!" yet I have seen snow here much later. At least it is bringing much needed moisture to the area.
What did we do this week? More randomness as it was testing week at Fossil. Serra took the SAT on Wednesday and had Thursday off. She and Amanda celebrated by going to her favorite restaurant in Old Town and raiding the candy shop. Next week is a lot of band with two festivals to play at. Tuesday is the State Concert band festival and Friday is a jazz festival in Greeley.
Amanda is keeping up with the RA gossip on campus through her friends that are in session this semester and inadvertently becoming my work assistant. Several packages came in this week that she opened and helped me log. She also loves shipping days and sticking on labels. It makes it fun.
Speaking of work, I spent two days at a photo shoot for an upcoming issue. When we have a team that can play and have fun it makes it so much easier to create amazing photos. This one won't be out for a few months, but it is going to be stunning.
Crafts and activities saw a chunk of finishing. I finished reading Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey in honor of her new book that will be coming in August. I have been impatiently waiting for Cassiel's Servant to arrive. It is a retelling of Dart from another character's perspective and my fingers are crossed that she continues the concept with the other two novels in the trilogy. The Sith Lord hood reconstruction has begun. I was lucky to steal it away from Serra to work on it as she did not want to give it up! Two skeins also were finished on Rumple.
I do not have plans for either of them, but it felt good to see empty bobbins. I still have my Merino project to work on and some Camel/Silk that has been patiently waiting its turn.
As for me, it has been a rather authentic week. I have spoken my mind and heart more than usual and it feels good. It's almost like a puzzle that you don't know the end photo of, yet each piece that you place in it fits, and continues to add to the whole. I am finding that I like being me and appreciate this current path of independence.
Next week! Two festivals, a trip to plan, class and lesson to teach, a stuffed email box to clean up and whatever else comes up along the way. Breathe, smile, be, Love, take care of YOU and I'll be back next week :)
