I’ve been overwhelmed this month. Of course, as is my style, I signed up for too much. This would be fine if I felt more emotionally stable right now. But I don’t. I am restless. Things are not at all easy or normal at the moment. I am positive and know that eventually they will be. But in the background of this blog, more work needs to be done on my Self. I’m getting there and eventually I will stop be vague – and share. All I can say is: thank god for my daily meditation/kriya.
1. Work let me buy this camera. I can’t tell you how I feel about this. Had I known the answer would be a fast “yes” I would have asked for it sooner. My job has improved ten-fold. This camera is going to provide many more creative opportunities for me. In addition, raises and promotions are being discussed this week. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
2. After work let me buy the camera, I took this picture. Last Wednesday, I got to go on a field trip to an offsite lab at a national park. I really like this photograph. The researcher – a high school teacher – is working with tadpoles and the effect RoundUp has upon a tadpole’s growth and development. I never knew being a science writer would be this cool.
3. On Fathers Day, I impressed my father. I had no idea my golf swing was so fantastic. Neither did my dad. Now I think we’ve created a Father’s Day tradition (he’s still trying to pawn off a set of ladies clubs onto me. I might accept now.)
4. Last week, at a birthday celebration, I enjoyed this berry-flavored gazpacho. I’m so thankful for gracious neighbors. I’m happy with where I live and the ways in which I enjoy those around me.
Non-photographed mentions: This week, I finish up my stained glass class and will be putting the finishing touches on my desk lamp. (Pictures to follow). Additionally, my softball team is 0-4, with only four games to go. I doubt we’ll see a “W” at all this season. My brain is conjuring up ideas for this week’s ARTicipate, and I’m hoping I can produce something I’m actually proud of. I also have a wedding guest book to create – so perhaps I can kill two birds with one stone. In contemplation? Starting the Insanity workout. I’ve seen too many ripped friends not to consider it. I’m really ready to lose these last 10 lbs already.
