Here I am

I know how long it has been since I posted, and its not that there is nothing to say or that I haven't been checking other blogs. I do and I have, but somehow I just wanted to enjoy my summer and then all of a sudden, school started. However, there were some high points. . .

**On 7/7, my nephew and godson, Carson William was born in San Diego, and although we have seen pics of him, we are looking forward to seeing him at his christening in November.

**We had a fantastic time in Cape May. . great weather, great food, and my Dad drove out with us and stayed with us, which I think has helped our relationship and we enjoyed being together for a trip.

**School started with the most kids ever in the past 10 years, and I feel good that my hardwork has helped to build enrollment.

**This year, I am taking the time to enjoy the meetings with kids, the retreats, the time I spend with classes, etc. I know its only October 1, but I want to make this a positive year.

**I have read many books over the summer and this fall, but mostly about the food industry. I would never give up my guidance counseling for working as a chef, etc, but it is interesting to read about the work, the restaurants, etc.

**I have been trying to sell some books on Amazon to help with expenses, but then I go and spend it on beads. I guess I should be trying to sell some jewelry etc. I did have fun this summer creating new pieces and earrings and would probably be working on something now, but I spent the weekend trying to feel better. The first cold of the season has caused coughing, aches, and illness.

**This is really a new start. We had a computer that was not working but things are remedied for now, and I miss being able to look back at my old entries now that they have disappeared. However, this can be a new beginning for a new season.
