a new Series

I will start posting a new series sometime in the next week or two.  see you then!


Spring is here and I have been spending much time working, knitting and playing in garden.  I work in the gardening industry so its insanely busy at work right now. Its also time for me to start planting my own garden and I have 3 friends who are having babies so the baby knitting has begun.  I have made the choice not to go back to school in the Fall.  I realized that I don't need to be in "college" to get the information that I need to do  what I want.  Frankly it just wasn't worth the $3 grand I paid and there are many more ways I would like to be spending my time.  I may not be posting that often to this blog but you can find me at which is my new blog.  See you there.

new blog

So I started a new blog about knitting.  I haven't posted anything there yet but I will in the next day or so.  I am decided not to go back to school in the fall and focus on making art and not spending money to do things for a grade.  I think that its a great choice.   I am really excited about spending more time with my knitting and learning new things.  I will still post to this blog as well.  i am working on a new series of Dance photos that I am excited about.  I will start to post them in the next week or so when I finish touching them up.  Please visit my knitting blog when you get a chance.

Life and the pursuit of ART

Today is mothers day, I am a mother and received coffee in bed from my lovely family they even got up extra early to bring it to be sense I am the early riser in the family.   I worked crazy hours this week and have recommitted myself to the gym so it was hard to find to do any but sleep, work out and a bit of knitting.  I feel like lately its what keeps me sane.  I am really trying to figure out whether or not to go back to school the Fall.  Whether I can get out of life what I want without taking college classes. I feel really confused about  what to do.  I don't feel like the classes I took were that good and there is no guarantee that I will be able to get a job once I am done the program.  Then there is my job, I can't go part time so there is the issue of working 40 hours taking 2 classes and getting my kid to two ballet classes a week.   It feels impossible.  While I was taking classes also didn't have any time to knit or work on any new photos or go to the gym.  I wish the answers would just come to me.  
Happy Mothers day to all the Mothers out there,  We are all very special people!!

Today I turn 41.  Last year I call the City arborist ( the tree guy) about getting a tree planted in  our green belt in front of our house.  We have this program in the city where the city will plant a tree for you and you get to take care of it.  anyway, when I talked with him he said that the green belt was not wide enough to support a tree's roots system.  So I pretty much gave up on the city giving us a tree.  I have two flower gardens in the green belt and a raised bed veggie garden in our yard, Well I guess the all powerful city guy decided that the green belt was wide enough because when we got home last might we had a beautiful elm sapling planting in front of our house.  What a great way to start my Birthday weekend.

 I LOVE this time of year.  I work at a company that is all about gardening.  I love going to work and talking about it with my co worker, and the customers sometimes I Loose sight of what a great Company i do work for.  We get 4 weeks of vacation and sick time.  All of our health insurance is paid for, and most of the time its pretty fun.  I have gotten a new appreciation of the place, Listening to how other working people have it now and how things are only getting worse.  I really am one of the lucky ones.  Did I mention that we are employee owned Co to boot.  

As I move into my 42nd year ART (This could mean a myriad of things, photography, knitting, gardening, ....), family, friends, the ocean These are all things that I want to focus on.  

I feel so thankful for my life and the people in it.

Boy is it cold!

Nothing like coming home to 40 degree weather to snap you back into reality.  Its cold I have to work overtime for the next two weeks and I am turning 41 on Saturday.  I love m birthday always have getting older is something that I am hung up on.  Its the having to work on Sunday which is ordinarily one of my days off.  which means I only get one of my birthday weekend days off. I was dreaming of having the whole weekend to do whatever i wanted.  Put the family to work in the yard, see a bad romance comedy, go out to dinner...the list goes on.  oh well us human is flexible so now my weekend is packed with other things.   

Well on Vacation I really didn't take many photos.  This thing happens when I go somewhere.  I feel like my camera gets in the way of really experiencing the place and the people,  When I went to Europe I only took 5 rolls of film the whole trip and I was there for 9 weeks. that was before digital.  I am happy to be home and to see all the tulips blooming.
