Well, it seems that subs are needed in the local school system here. I had a quiet week during spring break. I got a chair partially reupholstered, worked on some more jewelry pieces. DH and I went to a concert on Thursday in Omaha. DH took the next day off and we went shopping in Old Market and checked out a used record store. We met his parents for a nice dinner and basically spent the rest of the weekend just relaxing. It was a nice weekend and what a nice way to spend it.

Now I have worked the last two days, I am working tomorrow and we will see how the rest of the week goes. I have some photos to post and hopefully some mail to get out this week. Everyone take care and I'll be back soon.

Just a check in

I am trying really hard to keep up with my blog and post at least a couple of times a week. I have some projects I have been working on but I need to get the photos loaded and scaled down for the web. I am also recuperating from spending time at my parent's house and my new job. I had a blast at both but I am worn out. Hopefully I'll be back later today or tomorrow.

First day on the job

Well, here it goes. I have been hired by the public school system here as a substitute para educator and I am taking my first sub job today. I freaked out a little on Sunday when I finally registered myself with the calling line. I barely got off the phone when it started calling me with positions needing filled. I did eventually calm down and I am going to do this. I am nervous and excited all at the same time. I haven't worked for almost a year and I can tell I'm getting stir crazy.

Also, everyone be careful out there today. Today marks the 7th anniversary of our BMW's demise. 7 years ago today we were driving home from the airport after dropping DH's aunt off. We were at a red light when a drunk driver rear ended us. This was at 9:30 in the morning. Please be careful out there and if you do feel the need for a green beer or three, make sure you have someone to drive you home.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

What have I been doing?

Well, the last week I have been making some pieces of jewelry. I managed to clean out all my craft supplies in my closet and attempted to organize it and put it all back in. It kind of worked. I can now at least walk in and look at my clothes without stepping over craft supplies. When I cleaned everything out, I found my jewelry making supplies and decided I need to make something. I didn't know what, but I knew I had to make some kind of piece. Along comes this bracelet. It went together so quick that I shocked myself. It's not the best piece out there but I'm pretty happy with it.

Now I am going to enjoy this lovely sunshine and get some supper started. Take care!

What a day!!!

Saturday, I drove up from Lincoln to Fremont to take a beginning photography class with Becky Novacek. I was nervous and a little unsure of myself at the time. It had been awhile since I have taken any kind of class, let alone one for my camera. We have had this Canon for awhile now and all I ever shot in was auto. I wanted to be able to do more with my camera and when I read about this class on Vicki Chrisman's blog, I decided that I would take it if Becky ever offered it again.

I had such a wonderful time. I met some new people and learned how to use my camera at the same time. I think I have been needing something like this for awhile now. I have been holed up in my little cave for way too long and I need to get out and stretch my wings. Now I can't wait to get out and take some more photos. I will be going up to see my family in about two weeks and I will definitely work on getting as many photos as I can when I am there. The camera will not be sitting in the bag anymore.

Well, here are a few photos from this weekend. I haven't done anything yet to them in ps. They are straight off my cf card.
