At work, but getting a little excited!

As I waited for a pile of documents to land on my desk, I decided to take a Facebook break. I ran across a glass sgraffito challenge by a fellow glass artist. How brilliant! A January challenge of 30 pieces in 30 days! I believe this post has been floating around for a while since there is more than 350 participants from around the world and today is New Years Eve, but I signed up for the challenge anyway!  I am getting excited!!!

Happy New Year everyone!

Time for a change?

The holidays went beautifully.  I loved having all of my kids at home with us!  I cooked Christmas Eve dinner and had my some of my extended family to come join us.  We talked, we laughed we ate, and just enjoyed being together.

Now the new year is approaching and no matter how I fight the urge to set any resolutions, the wheels in my mind turn.  I am longing for a change. A change in where I live, a change of lifestyle, even a career change..... or not.   My spontaneous nature had been curbed the last 27 years due to my marriage and having children. My children are grown now, and fear of change has set in.  When I was young and spontaneous, I did get into some trouble, but I had fun. Now that I am older I would think I could do some living outside of the office and my home......

hating the suburbs and the cubicle today....

This weeks been interesting.  I stayed off of Facebook for a whopping 3 days.  Do you know that when you don't log on Facebook they actually send a e-mail telling you have notifications.  I ignored the e-mail, stayed off of Face book until this happened.......

My husband bought a Christmas ball ornament and a small Snoopy decoration for a twig of a tree that we have in our front yard.  We thought it was cute.
Then one evening we noticed the Christmas ball was missing.  We thought it was strange that it was gone, and that that maybe the neighborhood kids may have taken it.  Well, we have cameras and my husband did a re-wind, and low and behold two grown ass women taking a walk through our neighborhood around 7:30 in the evening, cross the street to our house just to go into our yard and lift the Christmas ball.  That pissed me off. I had to do something......

I posted a sign in the yard...."Two girl Grinche's stole my Christmas tree ball.... Smile you are on Camera".

Since I believe these women our my neighbors, I am keeping it up  for a few more days until I replace the ornament.  I think they should be embarrassed and ashamed of themselves.

So I thought this story was Facebook worthy..........

unplugged...just a little

I decided a couple of days ago that I was going to unplug from social media for a while,with the excpetion of this blog. I enjoy writing the occassional blog post and enjoy reading posts from blogs that I do follow. I am however overwhelmed by Facebook. I follow several art groups (with a few thousand members in each group) a few hundered facebook friends, and of course some close friends and family. My time slips away looking at pictures, projects and reading posts.  I need to regroup and use the minutes and hours of my life to living and creating.

I feel the need to take a walk on the beach..........
