Try Again?

So, I keep trying this blog thing. The honest to goodness truth is this. I LOVE reading other people's blogs about what they are doing, what they are going through, etc. It's a great way of keeping in touch and feeling like you are closer to people. But, for some reason, I can't seem to keep motivated to write on my own blog.

So, here's the quick update on me! I have a new job! I start on Monday, after meeting the team tomorrow at a lunch. I'm not sure exactly where I fit on the team, so I'll let you know more about it later. But that's the good news anyway :-)

Seattle is great. We've gotten mostly settled. Caught up with some old friends, and have even managed to stay fairly in touch (though never as much as we'd all like, I'm sure) with people in PDX.

My current 'creative outlet' is our wedding album. I'm hoping to be done with it (yes, 2 years later...) before I go back to work on Monday! It is an attainable goal, I think.

After that, it's on to Christmas cards. And Christmas gifts ;-)

How nuts is that - it's the middle of October! Can you believe it?!?

Last night I went to a card making class - 6 easy-to-mass-produce Christmas cards in 2 hours. It was a lot of fun and I learned some things too! I think I'll check out more of their classes.

We're supposedly in for a big storm here today. Rain, wind, etc. Hopefully nothing too serious. It's cooler today - wasn't even 50 when I got up this morning. Our apartment would stay a lot warmer if someone would move in below us. You want to move? We'd love new neighbors! ;-)

Anyway...I'm off to work on the album, and cook a pumpkin. I know it's easier to make pumpkin pie from canned pumpkin, and it probably tastes just as good, but...sometimes it's fun to do it the old fashioned way, right? I think so anyway. Got the pumpkin at Smith's Berry Barn last weekend. It's a fun place. Lots of fun gifty stuff in addition to the seasonal produce.

Hope you have a terrific Thursday!
