July 21, 2018: Heading to Paterson

So far it’s been a productive Saturday. It began a little stressful, since my search for a wedding photographer led to Andy and I possibly facing expensive deposit amounts from one vendor, and other inquiry emails sent to others met with silence. After some digging though, we came across someone who was accessible, with aContinue reading “July 21, 2018: Heading to Paterson”

July 20, 2018: Filling Station

So glad that the end of the work week is here. The past few days have left me feeling at a loss of ideas for next month’s theme at work. I’m predicting that it will all come to me right before August begins. It always happens like that, so last minute. Hopefully I can findContinue reading “July 20, 2018: Filling Station”

July 19, 2018: Escape in Poetry Therapy

It’s going to get busy with poetry therapy for the next week. Saturday begins ACTIONWEEK, the yearly poetry therapy intensive. My mentor Lila Weisberger used to arrange the schedule, but she passed down the duties to Nessa a couple years ago. Both women have held amazing programs, and I used to attend every workshop, fromContinue reading “July 19, 2018: Escape in Poetry Therapy”

July 18, 2018: Good Outcome

Last night’s Sips and Stitches event went really well. It was located in Flemington, not far from where I work. I was the only crocheter at the gathering (the group leader does also, but currently does cross-stitching), but I enjoyed meeting others who work with yarn like me. I felt a welcoming presence from theContinue reading “July 18, 2018: Good Outcome”

July 17, 2018: Sips and Stitches

In a few hours I’ll be heading to a crochet meetup at a brewery. I wouldn’t think that such a gathering would take place at a brewery, but I’m happy that it is. Since moving to Hunterdon County two years ago, I haven’t been able to connect with many people who have similar interests toContinue reading “July 17, 2018: Sips and Stitches”

July 16, 2018: Book Garden

A very humid day that changed to a hot afternoon. Certainly not a time to head outside later. I feel that we’ll be okay though. As long as I stick to the routine I planned out, the afternoon should go smoothly. Unless something unexpected happens (which always does)! Thinking about the wonderful book store timeContinue reading “July 16, 2018: Book Garden”

July 15, 2018: Thankful

Sunday mornings are usually a time for rest, having one more free day until the stress of the work week begins again. For me, some Sunday mornings bring worry, due to me overthinking issues in my life. I really need to stop doing that! This morning brings some promise, since my left hand still feelsContinue reading “July 15, 2018: Thankful”

July 14, 2018: Gatherings and Library Adventures

It’s been a quiet but eventful Saturday. Earlier today was Andy’s brother’s birthday celebration at Chimney Rock. It was a good gathering, and some close family friends were there, in addition to immediate family. Andy’s nephew certainly made his presence known, in a good way! After the gathering we went to the Hunterdon County LibraryContinue reading “July 14, 2018: Gatherings and Library Adventures”

July 13, 2018: Ready For the Weekend

As I mentioned before, mornings are the best time for calm. I have the time to gather my thoughts and ready myself for the day. No noise, no drama following me. It’s kind of therapeutic, in a way. I’m already waiting for 6pm, when my week of routine craziness will be done. For now, I’mContinue reading “July 13, 2018: Ready For the Weekend”

July 12, 2018: Planning Process

During today’s work break, I looked through some information about wedding photographers. It’s important that I locate someone that not too pricey. So far most of the sites I’ve come across are at the 3K range, and a couple don’t even list the price. I usually take this as a sign that the service isContinue reading “July 12, 2018: Planning Process”
