What a year ...

     Training classes, staff meetings and conference calls have dominated my life this year. Two career moves (luckily within the company I have worked with for years) but still career moves. New things to learn, new things to do ... I've hardly had time to hear my own thoughts about anything besides work all year.

       

     Painting ... photography ... learning to play my guitar ... are all things that I've had to place on the back burner and reading and writing here in J-Land has become something I seldom have time to do.

           

     I am starting to get settled in now and I think the largest part of the learning curb is behind me now (at least the most stressful part anyway). I expect to start having more time to myself again within the next two or three weeks. I can't wait.

         

     I took these photos last weekend. My friend Karen (you know ... the clown) just bought a new camera so we went on a field trip so I could help her break it in.

         

     Plan on doing a lot more of that with her in the near future. It's great to be out and about alone camera in hand, but ... it's always more fun with a friend.

         

     Hope all is well here in J-Land, I have 325 unread alerts in my in box. I hate that.

Whoa!  325?!?  The most I ever had was 212 and guess what, I read every damn one.  

What an idiot I am.  

Thanks for the kisses.

You sure haven't lost your touch with the camera! I am having shoulder surgery mid-December, and am hoping to get to FL before then. I will keep you posted!

I get swamped by alerts from time to time....and I just have to delete them and move on.  I figure I'll get caught up in my own round about way.

The pictures are beautiful.  I hope life calms down for you very soon.
