Coloring Week! CHF Week #1 Challenge
I'm Reaching for the Stars!
I've been coloring in my 'free' time... It's the current's week challenge at the CHF Big Ol' Honkin' 5 week challenge going on! Tee Hee!
The special 'this week's challenge' gallery is getting busy! Lots of beautiful goodies in there!
Of course, this means, for me, I am not doing any other of my favorite challenges (Hero Arts, Caardvarks, 2Peas)... not until I get the CHF 'project of the week' done and under wraps!
Focus. Focus. Focus.
All I can share right now, is that I have been playing with trees, and coloring with them with different colors to see which ones I like...
Life At the Ranch:
It's been absolutely gorgeous! Summer is here!
I am such a California girl. I love my sunshine.. And water... Oh the combo package!
But, summers fly by!
My 'free' time is very sparse right now! Serious 'busy' going on!
My Report: Day 1 At the New Job:
I woke at 4am and was so darn excited!
I am one lucky lucky lucky gal.
I went for a walk... did some work at the ranch, and went to my new job. I am working there 20+ hours a week.
This is the place where I taught my recent scrapbook/altered art classes. Yippee!
My boss asked for my 'perfect' schedule.. and then she adjusted everyone's schedules around it... (note to self - give boss lady a big fat kiss - or box of chocolates! And, some goodies for co-workers for being so accommodating of new chick on the block!)...
Oh my gosh.. Just typing it makes me want to cry! She is so awesome!!!!!!! ( I'm also tired from all the awesomeness going on!)...
How on earth does anyone work a full-time job? And be a mom, wife, house-cleaner, gardener, etc. etc.??? Granted, my lifestyle is a little skewed.. and my 'jobs' are not your run of the mill jobs, either! Like yesterday... Seven hours at my new job (it's actually our local scrapbook/copy/ship/mail store - and let me tell ya, we were heavy on the shipping and lifting thing! Crud. I never sat down. And lunch is only 30 minutes. I'm going to be napping on my lunch minutes!) .. I went to my job AFTER I put in a few at the ranch... (I 'herded' a cow and three calves out of my yard, made lamb milk, started laundry, cleaned the kitchen.. prepped a ranch deposit... stuff like that...)
My Dogs Were Barking when I got home!!!! But they are happy dogs!
Too bad the dogs didn't get to park (rhymes with bark) until about 8pm!
I got to cook dinner, clean the kitchen again, mix lamb milk, etc. etc...
But I did get to bed at a decent hour...
Because I had to get up at 4am to do the Chicken Run again! That's what I'm calling it! My Tuesday Chicken Run!
So Wednesday's Line up you ask? Work at the day job until 2:30 pm; then do the local Farmers Market (I have one hour between the two) until 6:30 pm. Home at 8pm...
It's crazy - but for those of you that think I'm insane, it's just during the summer...I promise!
Then, the markets will slow down and I can as well.
Hey! Maybe I'll loose some poundage with all this stuff!
