Valentine’s has come and gone again

I finally got a small break at work this past week one of my doctors was on vacation. I was able to catch up on some training, paperwork, and take a deep breath here and there. That was to prepare me for this week coming up. We have patients double and triple booked all week plus we are down two techs. I’ve been trying to not think about it at all this weekend. Glad that this has been a three day weekend.
This year I have completely embraced being single and truly enjoying it. For my Valentine’s Day present I got myself this
Vivienne McMaster’s, Be Your Own Beloved. Is that not the best present I could have given myself?
Ever since I heard and saw about this on Pintrest. I have been enjoying this class so far and am looking forward to the next few weeks. I am doing the class with a great group of super supportive people and love it so far.
I also went on a hike to Red Rock Canyon with a group of amazing women.

To top it all off went out for dinner and a couple of drinks.
I had a wonderful day and truly enjoyed myself.
Oh my goodness, I almost forgot, I got my tattoo finished. I love it. What do you think?

My weekly post

I told myself, and you, I wanted to post at least once a week in February. Here I am, 11:30 Sunday night putting together my post.
I went back to the Wetlands Park and just wandered around. I bird watched, listened to the wind through the reeds, took many deep breaths, and even got a bit of sunburn. The weather here in Las Vegas has just been incredibly warm and beautiful.

I’ve been frustrated the past couple of weeks with my hair and going gray. This in between stuff (at least for me) is the worst. My short hair still kinda covers the gray , but you can see the gray underneath. I really feel that once I get all of the color out of my hair and really get the gray growing it will look great.
I was telling a coworker last week that I am growing out my gray. She said, oh, why would you do that?
I commented that I am ready to just be done with color and let my natural color shine. Her response…hmmmm well, if you don’t like it you can color over it. Lol. Don’t let others discourage you. Own it and love it. I’m trying to in my awkward growing out phase.

The month in review

I can’t believe we are now in the second month of the year. My last post was 3 weeks ago. What in the heck have I been doing?
Working, working hard at my day job. Folks need surgery and glasses and I’m here to help with that.
Finished a blanket I’ve been working for a Christmas present for a friend. I’ve been so busy have not had a chance to deliver it.
I had quite a few bead sessions at my torch, needing/wanting to fit in more .

I’ve been working on my metal work and designing a new line of jewelry hopefully to start selling by June of this year. What do you think?

Growing my gray out, and it’s coming along quite nicely. I’m figuring by the end of this month (February) I should be all gray with a short pixie.

Had a bellydance performance, and had three weeks to learn the choreography. Many practices to fit in my already tight schedule. I’m not really a dancer so it takes me a bit (forever) to learn the steps.
I put a down payment on a kiln I have been wanting for 5 years. WooHoo!
Went to the Wetlands park here in Las Vegas and was amazed by all the beauty, wildlife, and tranquility. Can’t wait to come back. We are not all casinos and shows here.

Started a stunning new tattoo with a desert humming bird and cherry blossoms yesterday. Jake is a true artist. It’s a little out of my comfort zone (due to placement) but I knew it would be. All the little details will be added in a couple of weeks.

Lastly, I ended this incredible month going to see Sinbad… He is still funny as ever. If you have a chance to see him, GO, you will be laughing the whole time. Really enjoyed that show.
Whew. I think that’s most of it. I assure you I was not sitting around wondering why I have nothing to do.
Goal for this next month is to try to post at least once a week. STAY TUNED!
