Wow. WOW! I've been gone from here a long time. I was worried to even come back thinking maybe I had been hacked by some crazy international spammer and the Pixie Pages had been turned into some crappy spamming site in broken English with terribly misspelled words. Alas that is not the case. It's just a crappy, not updated in ages blog that I've ignored way too long.
I've been traveling for work and when not traveling still keeping my nose to the grindstone trying to keep up. Barely staying afloat. Treading water. lol, sounds dramatic, maybe a slight overstatement but really there's been NO downtime, NO slow time. It's been full steam ahead for a solid year.
I did take a one day sketching / watercolor class in the city this summer. I also took an online class with Mary Ann Moss over at Dispatch From LA. Both were a ton of fun and I had grand plans to sketch and paint something every day, even if it was only something quick. Not so much. Life gets in the way and by life, I mean work.
The man and I also did a day hike one weekend. High Point, NJ. Bear Territory! I did not know it was Bear Territory! (Capital letters and exclamation point mine because that seemed to be how EVERYONE reacted). We saw no bears. Not that I'm disappointed but still...
I've done quite some traveling this year, none of it for leisure but the list includes: San Antonio, Del Mar, Palo Alto, La Jolla Boston, Philly, DC Vegas, San Jose and Santa Clara, Chicago, Alpharetta...and the list goes on. I feel like I should just unpack, do the laundry and re-pack everything and in some weeks, that's exactly what I did :)
And so, we are into November. My schedule is not slowing down and the first quarter is looking to be busier than ever. Made some new work friends. Met some great new people. Met a great new guy. Life is good. Life is busy. One day it will all balance out. Until then, I'll try to check in here a bit more frequently. I'll try to be a better blog owner. I'll try to be creative each day. That's all any of us can do...try.
