My current Project

My current project is due to noise I had been hearing from my front end while driving. After examination I narrowed it down to the outside tie-rod end on the driver’s side.

After I finished I took for a spin and the noise is gone, it handles better and now I have to get a wheel alignment.

A expected project  done unexpectedly.

Home From Work

Traffic was thick on the way home…but I had to stop to pick up a few things before heading home. I decided to take my time and not let the rush hour get to me. Just before leaving work, it was very misty. You could tell it was sticking around or going to pick up steam, and I knew that would bring the rush hour to a crawl.

After arriving home, my daughter was leaving to run an errand. She asked me to cook the rice and green beans.

The rice is on its way and the beans are too.

This is safe stuff to cook.

This is how my evening is starting.

It’s All Good…Still

Summer days are fastly (not a word, but should be) approaching and people are out and about ready to knock off winter’s dull-drums, if winter does that to you. The warmth of the sun and heat of the days have come to bring activities that have been baking on the inside of one and all.  I have been busy indoors #workinon my Facebook Page, artwork for my online store, trying to involve myself more into my social network, and preparing to open my online store. 

If I were able to, I would produce my own products from home not just to save money, but because I like doing things myself…although I know doing that would also be so much more time consuming. So I have looked into where and who would best suit my needs in producing some of my items. I’ve bookmarked several sites to look into and will do more research as I move along.

I stated before on several occasions that I am a one man show. I know I am at a disadvantage in may ways when it comes to what I am trying to accomplish, but in no way am I going to let that be a deterrent. I’m aware there are many people in the same situation as myself, doing it all on their own that may feel the same as I do. At times it’s overwhelming, but I am thankful for the opportunity to wish upon the stars and to see dreams come true.      

So I’ve been busy designing some items for my van to advertise my business and I settled on Vistaprint for now to get me started in that area and also for window decals for the back windows on automobiles to sell. If you haven’t noticed, I changed my Facebook Page to Mind-ful Things which is the domain I purchased for my website. I think it is a better fit for me because of my poetry and clocks I design along with other writings I come up with. I ordered my ad items and also ordered some decals to see what they will look like. I’m also #workinon my website to get it ready to open. I went ahead and designed business cards and ordered them through Vistaprint also. I could have printed them myself but decided not to. 

When my store does open, it will not be completely full of items, but a nice selection will be on hand. You won’t see much if you were to visit Mind-ful Things right now, as I said…it’s a work in progress. This is the header I designed for it…

I also have it as a cover on my Facebook page which I would love if you were to like my page and be sure to follow me on Twitter @whatruworkinon. 

Thanks for taking the time to stop in….I gotta get back to work.

DMV Time

It’s the end of the month and that time has come

Registration renewal, DMV was packed and them some

I walked on in and hung my head to the floor

The first stop was a line stretched back to the door

The information desk I go, to say why I’m there

That was done quickly, without much despair

I received my number, found my way to a seat

Took out my PSP, played games with a beat

Every now and again, lifting my head to look around

So many faces…some smiles, but more with a frown

Time ticked away, from beginning to an hour

Quiet it was…children there, but not one scour

Not long past the hour, my number is called

Strolled I to the counter, not in the least appalled

The time with the agent was done very fast

On my way out the door, DMV time was past

Out Of Place
