Food for thought

Just back from NYC. Love the vibe there. Visited the Surtex show at the Javits Center. I walked the show, talked to some amazingly talented folks. Now I need to move in the direction to get ready for the show in 2010. Looks like many months of homework , but I am up for the challenge and looking forward to the new work possibilities. Need to get the portfolio in order and the long list of to do's!

Spring Garden

I Love the spring!

After 2 years in our home the front yard is looking pretty good, although it is still in need of some TLC. The time for the backyard has finally come. We have a lovely volleyball court, and patio and the lawn is on the way. We had some brush chipped today,trees cut and loam next week. Looks like possibly a yard soon! Looking forward to it.


Parade tuba playing is a bit more challenging than regular old band tuba...or so I am told. Looking forward to some extreme marching and serious tuba playing on Memorial day.

Love my Mom

I love my Mom.
She is by far one of the bravest people I know. She has been battling recurring brain tumors for 13 years now. Major brain surgeries, radiation treatments, cyber knives, you name it, she has done it. It is a yearly occurrence for her. I honestly have never heard her complain, not once. She has never felt sorry for herself. Never uttered the words "Why me". She just pushes forward, doing what has to be done. She is forever optimistic and hopeful that this years tumor will be the last tumor. I love her, she knows that, but I need to make a point of letting her know how much I admire her strength. So Mom, I know you never thought you would hear me say it, but you are my hero, I can only hope to be like you! I Love You, Happy Mothers day.

So if you are out and about on Saturday, stop by the designing women show. I am giving out little Mom Wow cards for mother's day. Oh and they are free. Did I mention I really enjoy giving stuff away!
