Once in a while a girl can buy herself flowers. These beauties came from the sale bin at Meijer’s.
In case you are wondering what the occasion might be…. I am very happy to announce that I have, at long last, found one single full time job!!
Have a nice night everyone!
The tendency to whining and complaining may be taken as the surest sign symptom of little souls and inferior intellects. ~ Lord Jeffrey
I have noted some trends lately on a few of the blogs I occasionally read regarding an increase in the amount of whining the writers have been doing.
A marked increase in fact, about a plethora of things infecting the blogosphere and clogging my blog reader. Sadly, whining is not limited to blogs either, the social networks I participate in are filled with whining posts.
|“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” ~Dr. Seuss
As many of you know, I lost my job last December and to say it has been challenging to find replacement work is an understatement! I am fortunate, I guess, to have not one, but two part time jobs. Neither of which equal one full time job, but it is more than many have today.
Dr. Seuss’ words of wisdom are particularly needed today…there is no one alive who is ‘me-er’ than me.
Therefore I thought I would take a moment to remind myself of some things worthy of celebration… or at least sharing some distinctively (and positively) me things!
I have always been a wildly independent person; however, I have discovered that there is greater strength in the love and support of a friend when you least expect it. It is nice knowing that someone believes in you even when you cannot believe in yourself.
I have a great sense of humor, but I can honestly say that I can laugh loudest at myself.
I feel compelled to lift people up rather than tear them down. That person cheering in the underdog’s corner… it is more than likely me.
I am an early riser – I wake most mornings before 5AM without the aid of an alarm clock. I have been this way for almost my whole life. Perhaps this is why morning is my favorite time of the day.
I think differently than other people, very differently. Most days, that is a very good thing and as for the days it is not a good thing, here is to them ending just as quickly as they began!
Therefore, as the “unofficial” start of summer begins this weekend with the arrival of Memorial Day, I would ask you to leave me a comment of some things that are incredibly you! Teach me something newer than new about you!
Have a great weekend everyone!
My Bodacious Leader posed some questions to her Bodacious-Wanna-Be’s this week so the focus today is all about summer.
Janey wants to know….
What do you do to get ready for summer? What says summer to you – music, food, clothes, activities, you name it…
Living in West Michigan where the Days of Summer are definitely numbered you will find most of the population here living each summery moment to its fullest. Moreover, with stats like this you can see why:
Almost half of Michigan is comprised of water and, except for Alaska, Michigan has more shoreline than any other state, fronting four of the Great Lakes: Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, and Lake Erie. With 3,177 miles of Great Lakes shoreline it is easy to see why Michigan boasts a thriving recreational industry, and leads the nation with approximately one million registered pleasure boats.
However, what is a girl to do when she is not counted in the one million registered boaters?
First, there was a bit of dyeing.
Then there was a little re-skeining.
Finally yesterday, with the help of my incredibly talented friend, AsKatKnits Studios was born!
Today AsKatKnits Studios is open for business.
Please feel free to go look around a bit. I will be adding more yarns and fibers in the upcoming days.
I would like to thank StevoFC for all his help yesterday! Your attention to detail, your drive for perfection, and your willingness to drop everything to help a friend is humbling.
Gentle Readers, if ever you need any web design work, I would highly recommend him!
