Love Is In The Air

Love In Time Coffee Mug

There is never a wrong time to show how much you love someone. Giving a gift of love at a time when they least expect it is a time to remember.

Poetry has always been a way to express these feelings. Now you can do it in so many different ways….and here are just a few.

You know you can’t go wrong in giving a gift of love.

It’s Monday Night!

Yes, it’s Monday Night and yes I am watching football. I’m hoping for a good game. It’s just about to start. Both teams, The Bengals and The Steelers are in the same division as my team, The Browns. This is a tough who to root for. On one had, a Bengals loss would help The Browns and a Steelers loss would help also. A Bengals win, would tie up the bottom in the division. 


OK…the Bengals fumble the opening kickoff and the Steelers recover. It didn’t take long for them to score…TD.


Now for the Weather….just kidding. 


I miss having my tools…I think I just realized that. I miss that part of my life; working with wood. I’ve said before that I am not an expert at woodwork, but I really enjoyed the smell, measuring, drilling. I have a table router I haven’t used yet. When that time comes, it will be that much more enjoyable; for now I have enough going on. 


Preparing myself mentally for the winter. I’m liking winter less and less these days, but I at least have the pleasure of being in an area with milder winters. Look at that…I got the Weather in anyway…hmph.


I guess I’ve been doing some reflecting lately; looking at where I’ve been and where I am now. Physically I feel fit, some aches; mentally I know I’m doing better these days; financially?…workin on that.


Well, I gotta go…I have some work to do…by the way, it’s halftime…yeah, I know.


    

Football….again

The last time I posted, I was watching football. Tonight, it’s the Colts and the Giants. It’s the build up of the brothers before the game. I’m watching the scores right now and I think it could be a very interesting season. The Jets beat the Patriots. Washington lost in OT against the Texans….Washington should have won that one in regulation….yes, this could be an interesting season. 


Before tonight, I had been busy getting some cards ready for purchase. I had the whole weekend off, so that gave me time to catch up. I posted pictures of the cards I have ready onto my website, here. I’m about to get into e commerce, pricing the cards and getting sku numbers. It’s getting close and I have an exciting, nervous anticipation flowing through me. 


I’m really pleased with the look of the printed cards. I’m beginning to see that it was a blessing that I had a computer crash AND that I had to do my designs over again. As I got into the half fold cards, I saw that some adjustments had to be made. Learning as we go. 


Here are a couple of cards.

 I’m still adding new cards and also working on Birthdays, Anniversary, Congratulations and more. 


I haven’t forgotten about my T-shirt line. I’m doing test prints on some of those also, with iron-ons. I put this on a T-shirt of mine and it turned out pretty good.

Don’t forget to take a look at the selection on my site http://whatruworkinon.com


That’s what I’ve been Workin On….what about U?



Football and No Work

OK…it’s Thursday night. First game of the 2010 Football season. The Saints lead the Vikings 7 – 3. No, I’m not going to give a play by play or keep you updated on the score. Anyway, by the time most of you read this, you will already know the outcome of the game.


My thing is this. Why am I feeling guilty? When I got home from work yesterday, I didn’t do anything. Today, the same. Deep down I feel I should be doing something. At the same time I feel as if I deserve a rest….everyone does right?


I have deadlines to meet and I know if I keep this up, I will fall further behind. I do realize the stress is building and I must stay focused. I also realize that I am human and if I push too hard, that could make things worse. Is there a happy medium? 


Of course there is. One thing I need to do is to step back and look at the big picture, and in this picture I see a lot of red because the red is in my eyes. I did work late today and was really tired when I got home. What do I do? Stay the course. Tonight, I rest again and remove the guilt. I know I will get back to where I need to be and to focus on what is at hand. If I had sat myself down to work on my designs, I wouldn’t have accomplished much because my mind is tired….I know this. 


I almost sound as if I’m having a self pity party. Not so. I have a job that is stressful, demanding, and tiring (is that a word?). It really does take a lot out of me at times….it’s real…I can’t get away from it…not yet.


Pity?…no. Whine?…maybe. Whatever it is, there ya have it. 


Tomorrow, it’s back to business. Right now?…Saints lead the Vikings, 14 – 9. The Vikings missed the extra point.
