Reality is the Only Obstacle
to Happiness!   :)
Maybe this is why I say good morning to the birds...

Did you know that the Universe speaks to me on a daily basis? Yes, I get emails from it everyday and it tells me constantly how happy it is that it created me. No I am not kidding. Try it for yourself - Tut.
Although I seriously wish it would stop using my name. I know this makes it very personal, but I always feel like I am getting yelled at :)
My daily note from the Universe:
Did you know, Valerie, that if you can see a cloud, it can see you?
Same for trees.
...and yes, I really do say good morning to the birds and the squirrels, etc. Must be an old Snow White complex (LOL) but it is a really nice way to start the day, communing with nature and all that.
Etsy Shop is OPEN!

Well, I'll be darned! I sold another one! If nothing else it sure makes me feel good that someone was interested in my designs. Wait, it gets better, it was the same person! She bought the set of two to give as a gift and when they arrived at her home, she liked them so much she is keeping them for herself and bought a second one to give as a gift!!!!
So here is a link to the shop: Ewe Hoo! There are only a few items up there right now, but I have tons more ready to go - I just need the rain to clear up for a little bit so I can take some nice pictures. There are many different styles and colors and I am experimenting with new techniques so you never know what you will find!
So - go shopping already!!!
OK, OK - I'm back!

Yawn...... Well, it appears that I am back from a long summer's nap. I know mostly people take their "naps" in the winter, but I don't really like the summer and that garrish heat! So with the first cool weather of the season and a crop of brand new fall clothes in the stores, I feel RENEWED!! Yes, folks, I actually cleaned my apartment, and it was sorely in need of it too, and that was only due to the cool, rainy weather of the weekend. I know it's still August and the hot weather will be back, but if it's not sweltering and humid - I should be OK!
In between my last post and now a few things have happened including my Blogiversary and a new business (no, not the dog sitting thing), knitting stuff - stitch markers and needles. Well, for the time being, just the stitch markers since the needles are still in progress.... I have even actually already sold something on my Etsy shop! Very cool.
As for the Blogiversary, rather than an arribtrary date of celebration since I missed the real date, I will probably wait for the same date next month and celebrate then. I will have to think about some form of celebratory goodness... hmmmm....
What else? Well, the job front is stable right now. I realized it is only one person that really upsets me to the point of leaving. As long as I can avoid him, everything else is fine. Although, seriously, I really need a change of pace. My current company can provide that if they are willing to listen to my goals. In the mean time, I am considering signing up for a three day course of "Train the Trainer" where I will learn how to effectively train other people (corporate training, not working out). It's fairly costly, but I consider it an investment in ME. It seems to be the direction I am moving in, but I notice I am afraid to make my move since I only have limited experience in training. This course might give me the confidence I need.
OK - time to get back to work... I been typing here killing time waiting for my meeting to start. We meet for this project we are working on almost everyday. This chick hasn't shown up on time, ever...
AND, I was gonna toss a pic up here just for color and BLOGGER won't let me do it. I tried more than a half dozen times and I just don't care anymore. Hopefully, Blogger will have this crankiness out of its system by tomorrow! Harumph!
