I still hate winter as much today, as I did yesterday! I miss summer and the lazy days of sitting by my pond drinking a cup of tea.


Just sitting here enjoying the view of my pond thoroughly depressed that I have to go back to work in a few weeks time. *sniff* My summer vacation was waaaaaay too short! LOL What a beautiful evening though!
Well, I'm still here, lurking more than I've posted. I've worked on my LJ a little this past week, trying to update a few things. I still haven't gotten to my gallery yet though. I want to post a few more pictures but I'll get to that soon. In the meantime, I'm on a lurking/reading binge right now. Absorbing all the QAF, HP, Smallville & LOTR fanfiction that I can get my hands on. I'm soooo totally hooked and I've no desire to be saved! LOL

As for the writing, eventually I'd like to jump back on board that ship. Someone throw me an oar! LOL

It's been a long time...

Yes it has, it's been forever since I've posted. I've never been very good at figuring out how to mess around with my LJ and get it to look quite how I want. I think that's been a very big deterrent in me actually posting. Especially since my backwater neighborhood doesn't have DSL and will not be getting it any time soon. I've got to do everything through dial-up and you all know how slow that is. I've got a bunch of fall pictures I'd love to post, but yeah, well.

Anyway, although I've not posted much, I'm still around. I just do a lot of lurking around in dark corners. Just thought I'd let you all know. :)

A bunch of snow and a new drabble...

I hope everyones' new year has been a good one! As you can probably tell from the pic on top of my LJ, it's been pretty cold here at home. We just had this huge snow storm and the pic is the result. Everthing looks so beautiful and pristine when it first snows, but when it melts, what a mess! And today it melted quite a bit. Everything is so muddy and messy and I can't believe how much snow we still have in our front yard!

On a side note, I actually got around to writing a little drabble for jamie2109's and nocturnali's weekly challenge. It's been quite a while since I've written, so I'm a little rusty. Please forgive any typos you may come across. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy it! :)

This week's challenge: What did you say that was/is?

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone's holidays were happy and safe! I've been enjoying having time on my hands again. Isn't one job only grand!? I've taken up running and would like to, eventually, lose a little weight. These love handles of mine are starting to hang a tad too much. LOL Unfortunately though, right now I'm a bit on the sick side. Caught a bug from my hubby and I can tell it's going to be a bad one, my chest is already starting to feel heavy.

I've been wanting to get back into writing again too, but I just can't seem to find the proper motivation. I've been reading fic like crazy though, especially re-reading all my old favorites. I'll get there eventually I guess. :)

What's been happening...

Well, I'm loving every minute of not having to go into work after work! I'd actually forgotten how nice the evenings could be. I usually come home and relax, sit outside or surf the net. Most importantly, I've been catching up on my reading.

Of course, now that I had time to enjoy, I got sick. Down on my back, in bed for four days and missed work sick! I'm still hacking up my left lung now and then. Oh well, now that I've been recuperating and I'm off the anti-biotics, I've actually stopped at my old job site to have a few drinks with the hubby. It's really nice to just go in as a customer and sit and enjoy myself.

Anyway, this weekend, we took a drive up to Snow Lake and took my son's senior pictures. I figured, why go to a professional photographer when I have a thousand dollar camera and a horrendously expensive telephoto lens that I can put to use. And wow, his pictures came out really nice!

I was finally able to fill up his little school house, you know, the frame thing shaped like a bus or school house where you put a picture for every year they are in school? That's when it hit me, he's a senior! There's no more blanks, no more spaces for pictures! I cried a little and every time I think about it, I still get sad.

On a side note, the picture on top of my LJ is one of the ones I took at Snow Lake. The Aspens are just starting to change. Aren't they pretty? Aspens are my favorite tree. I just love the white trunks, the colors they turn in the fall, and the sound the leaves make when they rustle in the wind. *sigh*

And on another side, side note...I'll soon get back into writing as well. I'd love to have feedback when I do! ;) That's all for now. :)

More time on my hands

Well, I finally did it. I gave my two weeks notice for my second job as a waitress. It finally just got to be too much. Going to work after work was becoming more and more difficult and tiring and the extra money I was making was no longer worth it.

I can say though, I appreciate having just one job again. And personal days, and sick days. Wow, you never realize how much you take those for granted until you try and ask for a day off as a server and your boss gives you all kinds of grief! You would have thought I was asking for the moon! I am giddy with the thought of all the free time I'll have on my hands again!

Anyway, last Wednesday was my last day. Woo hoo! Then this weekend, my husband and I organized and ran the concession stand for my son's cross country invitational. Now that it's all over, I am looking forward to this week when I can just come home after work (before the sun actually sets) and start writing and reading again. Working two jobs left me little energy to do any of that. My journal needs some changes and updates. I sure hope I can get to all that real soon.

I've missed all this. *sigh*

American Idol...

OMG! Taylor won! Taylor won! :D Yay! Yay! Hooray! I guess the fifty calls I made last night paid off!!!!! :) Woo Hoo! I can't wait for his first CD to be released! I go to bed happy tonight! :D Way to go Taylor, Soul Patrol! ;)

Just a quick check in...

Hi everyone! :) I've recently started a second job so my time has been severely limited. Wow, who knew waitressing would be so hard?! I go straight from teaching third graders to this other job and usually don't get home until around 11:00 PM so I'm usually pretty tired by then. As a result, I've fallen horribly behind with all my reading and writing. I do hope to finish writing the next part to the little drabbles I've been doing for jamie2109's and nocturnali's AWDT>

So, I'm off to catch up! :)
