This should have been my first post. Thank you all for continued reading of my post. I have not gotten to thank everyone individually, but I am working through over 1300 emails. Last year was a tough for me and it has taken it tolls. Be blessed.
I try to blog at least once a month. I have ideas about what I want to blog about, but only 1/3 of what catches my fancy ends up on this particular blog. I have several blogs that I post to. Here is my list.
Digging in the Box - I love thrifting and garage sales. Very frugal. I like to repurpose and recycle.
Jets Jewelry - This blog concerns my business. I make and sell handmade jewelry.
Jets Jewelry - This blog concerns, being frugal.
Pinterest - Pin ideas to one board
Plus numerous other projects that I am working on. I do have an Etsy Shop, but I have to add more merchandise.
I also volunteer and work a full-time job, harassing my family, out talking my husband and just general mayhem. I think that covers it. I wrote a blog about this before and I felt it was time to go over it again. Plus I did promise myself that I would blog about my activities here,so you can get a complete history on me. Check out my new post on my Digging in the Box.
Yesterday, we had a snow day, yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I was able to get some work done, stayed home all toasty and warm(except for helping the husband shovel the snow) Today I had to return to work(no yeah) and to single digit weather. On my way to work this morning, I saw a horse shoe rainbow. It was rather muted, but still a rainbow. One of friends saw it too and we both said the same thing. Thank God and dreams are going to come true. After all the bad weather we have been having, it was nice to see, what might be a hint of spring to come. I hope so. I took some photos of the rainbow in a moving car. Please forgive the picture
I have other blogs I write to. I plan to make changes to this one as well as the others. As I post and make changes, I will update my followers with these changes. I hope you like.
Digging in the Box contains all my frugal /thrift shopping/garage sales life. If you get a chance, check it out and let me know what you think. Tally ho.
There are a number of TV shows that I watch. Vampire Diaries, Dexter, Supernatural, Being Human, Criminal Minds, True Blood, 666 Park Ave(which is now cancelled. At the top of the list is the Sons of Anarchy(them my boys). The Wire is and will always be the best show on TV, but I digress. One show that has captured my attention is Scandal. I like to call it a love story with political background. Here is the official take on the show:
Everyone has a secret… and Olivia Pope has dedicated her life to protecting and defending the public images of the nation’s elite and keeping those secrets under wraps. Revered and feared at the same time, Olivia, a former communications director to the President of the United States, left the White House to open her own prominent crisis management firm. She is hoping to start a new chapter in her life—both professionally and personally—but she can’t seem to completely cut ties with her past. Slowly it becomes apparent that her dysfunctional staff, who specialize in fixing other people’s lives, can’t quite fix the ones closest at hand-their own. The creator and executive producers of Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice delve into the behind-the-scenes machinations of a mesmerizing top crisis manager in ABC’s highly anticipated new drama, Scandal.
Olivia’s accomplished staff, who would follow her anywhere and do whatever it takes to save someone’s reputation, include Harrison Wright, a slick litigator; Huck, hacker extraordinaire; investigator Abby Whelan, don’t let that smile and red hair fool you, she’s as sharp as they come; and Quinn Perkins, the new young woman in the office who is in awe of Olivia, but is initiated in a trial by fire on her very first day on the job.
As Olivia Pope and Associates fights for the reputations and sometimes lives of their clients, Olivia’s former boss, President Fitzgerald Grant, the First Lady Millicent Grant, the President’s Chief of Staff, Cyrus Beene, and the Assistant State Attorney David Rosen are never far from her beat. Her clients aren’t the only ones with secrets, though; surprisingly, she may need to exercise all her damage control skills on her own behalf.
I have been watching this show since it started. Though I have missed a few episodes(I am now caught up thanks to on demand). I fall more in love with this show. This last episode had me in tears when they release Huck. He sat down to eat. The only thing said was” welcome back”. I have watched the President and Olivia Pope play out a love story that would rival anything today, including Twilight. Both of the actors play their parts beautifully. You can feel their passion, need, love, longing. They ache for each other. Gives me chills. All of the actors are well-developed. One of my favorite is the Chief of Staff, Cyrus Beene, played by Jeff Perry. He eats up the screen with heat and intensity. You root for him even when he is being bad.
If you are not watching this show, you should be. You can catch and be caught in the scandal like the rest of us. As the season progresses, I will posting about this show and some of my other favorites. Please touch that dial and start watching Scandal. You will thank me later.
Every article I have been reading lately discusses making resolutions. Making them stick. Keeping your resolutions during the first month. We all do it. I am going to make a change, start or end something, generally change my life. How do you go about changing your life? How long will it take. If I don’t make the changes, then am I considered a failure? Who even started this resolution idea. It is so funny, we spend this great amount of time making and trying to keep these resolutions, that by the end of the month, our big life change had dribbled down to drip.
In my earlier post, I have talked about making changes to my life. New beginnings, New year. I believe in making goals, not resolutions. Resolutions sound so final. Goals sound infinite, ever-changing, ever-growing. You reach one and move on to the next. It is just like a statement saying,” I am going on a diet”, then becoming very hungary. Or maybe that only happens to me. Oh well, I did not make any resolutions. Just couldn’t. Nope, not me.
I applaud those who make resolutions and keep them. For me, one of my goals is ……………………….. I will let you know.
