I didn’t have a blog post in mind when I decided to tackle my forlorn azalea bush but I don’t argue when the content comes of it’s own accord.
Another Country: Costa Rica
A client of mine was generous – he flew the NY team members to Costa Rica for the holiday party and I even had an extra day for sight-seeing! Saw this pretty little creature at a reserve near the waterfall gardens we visited. Looking forward to going back someday and seeing more of the country for sure!
The Bee’s Knees
I love my little bee! I couldn’t believe it when he landed right there on the bench and stayed there! I’m not sure if what he was doing was cleaning but he was there for a full minute or two and I was able to scoot in pretty close. I’m using a pinhole setting on my camera which is why there is a soft halo effect around him.
Yellow and Fragile
Fall takes hold
At a park in Adamstown, PA fall creeps in, continuing the cycles of nature. This was actually the weekend before Hurricane Sandy hit. It was overcast all weekend and the air was wet but still a beautiful day to be outside.
It’s been a very hectic two weeks in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy but New York is resilient. We have a grasp on the extent of the damage and some is very severe and will take time to repair.
Global Sketchbook Project Day
Today was the Sketchbook Project meet-up day. I almost didn’t go – it was such a perfect Sunday to not do anything. Just sunny enough, just breezy enough. Did I really want to go hang out with people I didn’t know, who might not even show? But I did go and I’m glad I went!
Nostalgia turned into a lovely meal! With everyone making plans for Easter, I remembered Mom making Chicken Waikiki Beach every year and I just had to have it.
I am part of this really cool 8 week coaching intensive program, the Live Your Dream Challenge with Jenny Fenig, success coach to savvy women-on-a-mission, and our first assignment was to create vision boards – a way of seeing what your dream looks like to better help you achieve that dream. You can use magazine images, typography, anything you want really, that will convey what you’re wanting to happen. It’s fun making time to just sit and pull out pictures that you really like. Focus on yourself!
Thai Vegetable Noodle Soup
Last night, I felt like cooking something different and decided this broth had spent enough time hanging out. (I’ve been trying to get back to creating in general after a few very long, busy months!) It was so delicious.
