I know I can't be totally depressed. I am still shaving my legs. That has to be a sign of hope. I mean, my man is 8000 miles away, we had a hail storm just two days ago, and I haven't even SEEN my legs in weeks because I am too cold!
So I must be doing OK.
Last night I spent some time with my art supplies again. It was nice to get lost in that process... I was also making a birthday present for my friend Kate, and while I surfed the net for some quotes, I also came upon a few others that inspired me to create something with them. Below is one that made me laugh. Seemed timely for me...(please ignore the less than professional cropping of the canvas.) The quote is by Brian Andreas - the author of "Story People". FABULOUSLY inspiring books, by the way!!
In a bit a coworker is picking me up and we are going mountain biking. I keep trying to tell her how hopelessly out of shape I am and that Florida was FLAT, but I don't think she understands... or cares. I just hope she intends to drive to the top and pick me up at the bottom.
Next week on Friday I am taking off for 3.5 days to go exploring in the capitol, Wellington. It was originally where Bruce and I were planning on landing before I got my job offer in Rotorua so I have been really curious to see what it is like there. It should take me about 6 hours (considering that I drive like a tourist) to get down there. I haven't made too many plans for what I'll see yet, but I have next week to do so. I saw that they offer horseback riding on the beach, so I might try to book that if there's space... I've always wanted to do that, but when I had a horse I didn't have a beaches and when I had the beaches, I had no horse... Now just might be my chance!
