backgardenI have so not be keeping up with everything I want to keep up with.  Seems like I have all the time in the world but have so many things I want to do that I simply cannot care for everything.  Violin has taken precedence over knitting, though I did pick the needles up last night after I was just too tire to bow properly.  My garden has taken any time I have not working for Courage Beyondand…

Man, I have not been here in such a long time.  My work life exploded!  I’m a social media wizard and graphic designer at the non-profit I work for and have had little time for anything else.

But, I’m still on Facebook, where I still post up knits here and there.  And I’ve started up my website again where I’ve began posting chapters of a novel I wrote but never shopped out, chguise.com.  I’m editing blogs at work as well, and I may have a new client social media wise that will afford me to write about kitchen/food/cooking/baking stuff.

Hope everyone is doing well!!

Hmmm….

For the past six years I have dedicated most of my time to researching PTSD.

I met my husband online on a Jeep forum… I initially thought he was way too young for me.  

I think I missed my calling when I didn’t join the military as a 20 something.

I have written four novels. They have been beta read and loved, but I cannot be bothered to line edit or write queries for them. So trunked they stay.

I will allow my heart to bleed for the whole world, so I have learned to completely shut down my emotions which made me a very cold and calculating fighter in the ring.

Finally using my Graphic Design degree… only 20 years late.  There is something so rewarding about working for a non-profit.

Coffee adventures continued this morning.  I was tickled.  If you don’t know about Charlie and Candy Mountain, Google is your friend and you’ll never be the same.

The husband is building a full-sized Dalek for the front room.  He’s working on the plug to make a mold for the head right now.  I suspect this thing is going to be spectacular and will fit nicely with the Tardis sauna he’s got planned for the back garden.
