The End of Summer

August 31, 2011 at 3:35 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , )

I can not believe that school in Post Falls is starting on Tuesday.I remeber when I saw the children leaping for joy and the parents groaning like I used to but that was because I always had to try to find day care on short notice for my son Levi. I had a good summer this year. I had the pleasure of meeting some good people at some book signings this summer, had some good BBQ’s, had a family reunion this summer.

I have submitted two more stories for two magazines this last week. One story is for Bliss Victoria, and the other story is for Country America magazine. I am satisfied with how the free-lance writing is coming along. A friend told me about a book that was being published for the “Chicken Soup Books”, I submitted a story to them and I am waiting to hear if the story is accepted. i didn’t think i would be writing stories for books or magazines. This is pretty fun. for one, the stories stretch your writing capabilities, and two, I am getting to write for magazines I have loved for many years and would give anything to have a story printed.

I will be taking a few classes this Fall at the Work Force Training Center. through NIC college,you can take special classes either for fun or earn a certificate. I am planning on taking a Voice over class. the lady that has the oil of olay commercial and Colgate Tooth paste commercial is teaching the class..

The second class is Movie making magic. I need to learn how to upload my video and edit the video and then I can narrate the video as well. It should be a fun class then I don’t have to have people come over and help me all the time.

The last class I am planning on taking is Free-lance writing and blogging. I want to write and blog that is read and that people want to read. I know there is always room to grow when you write or blog.

I should be having a good fall season. It is my favorite seadon of them all. I love the cool crisp air in the morning and in the evening. Coffe just tastes better when the air is chilly. I love to snuggle up in my favorite quilt with my son’s cat. Also Septemeber, Jeff and I turn 50. I look foward to the new season in my life. i have had a few new seasons in my life the past 5 years. I look at this time in my life as agrowing season, a time to heal and to laugh with friends over a good cup of coffee and a hug.

The Falls Park

June 26, 2011 at 7:52 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , )

I have just gotten back from the Falls Park.265 lbs of water travels through the dam per minute. That is a lot of water. The reason the park and boat launch is still closed is because our dam is relieving the flooding in North Dakota. The water eventually flows into California.

I have not been to the Falls Park in a couple years. The last time I was there, Jeff and I went to check it out. He was impressed as well. I love that the kids can fish all day from the bridge and there are plenty of trails to hike on and a nice big play ground offered as well. I used to take my kids when I owned a day care center(my youngest day care child is a jr. in High School) I would let them play, and look at the water, have lunch, then go home for nap time.

Some of the kids reading this will say “yes,that is what we did.” plus going to the library in the afternoon. That is how each child could play computer games or read books. It has been so long ago it seems since I owned the day care. it is fun to see the kids now and see how they have grown.

I planted some plants yesterday. I hope they live. I have a real black thumb. And I do water. it is a standard quote to tell me. I am trying to compact my bushes in my flower bed tight, so I don’t have to weed as much. We will see.
