I realized today that I haven't posted in a while and reflecting on the last month, I guess it's just because all has been quiet. The weather has been remarkable with fall approaching (today actually). I started belly dancing classes this week and had so much fun! Having lost 32 pounds so far this year, I found myself quite proud of my new/old body and wearing my fabulous jingling hip scarf made me so happy to be alive! Last week my sister invited us on a trip to Denver to the annual Italian festival - which I couldn't pass up. It was little more than a street festival with many overpriced vendors selling some great smelling foods and tangible goods that I wished I could buy but the budget doesn't allow right now. Oh well, just less junk to clutter the house. I grabbed a crocheting gig with a girl who has found instant success on etsy. Orders are coming in so fast for her she can't keep up. So I am helping her crochet cute little animal hats for babies and getting paid, quite fairly, to do something I so love - while babysitting for my own precious granddaughter during the day. Does it get better than this?
