JP took me for a drive over to North Bend and Mount Si to break in my new camera.
love, Love, LOVE.... except sometimes I don't know what I'm doing, so I'm looking for a local class to take. In the meantime, here are some favorites, the before and the after. I'm in a sepia mood today.
Happy Wednesday, everyone!
Yeah, you're right. Too cheery. How about we all just sit quietly and sip our coffee?
Good news must be shared. And this weekend, the good tidings crept in slowly, then gained momentum like a thundershower.
1. The mailman came. Amid the pile of credit card offers, I got a letter in my box, a three-page letter from my 21-year-old nephew. He is in prison. I love this boy with all my heart and I hate how his life has gone thus far. So any communication is great, but an honest, well-worded letter is heaven itself. I had written to him two weeks ago, having just found him, and am dancing a jig to get such a good response. Letter #2 from me is on it's way.
2. JP worked in Oregon all last week. Talk about lonely. I love my kitties, but they're not big talkers. On Friday, JP arrived home safe, sound, and bearing gifts. Our 4th anniversary is a month away, but he decided not to wait. And he presented me with a toy I've been eyeing for three years -- in a Fancy Gift Bag, with tissue and everything!! Clearly, this was a big deal.
Very. Happy. Anniversary.
3. Yesterday was my first dedicated writing day. I'm now working a four-day week, taking Mondays off. The pay cut stinks, but we're gunna give it a try. I want to be a writer, not a transcriptionist. So, I wore my cowgirl jammies into the afternoon and worked out a difficult scene. BLISS.
4. JP had a job interview yesterday, and it went swimmingly! It includes No More Travel and working on the bigger equipment he's always wanted to learn about. He has to take a test next week and then we'll know.
Don't you agree, we all need a dose of happy news now and then? What's yours?
