Time Flies!

Where do our summer go?  And Fall?  If this isn't a lesson in living every day to the fullest then I don't know what is!

I have taken on full time employment at our nursing home.  12 hour shifts go remarkably fast.  I really do love it, and because time flies!  In no time at all, my seven shifts are complete, and I have a nice pay cheque!

On my days off, I sleep.  And when I don't need to sleep, I paint....and I dream of retirement...and traveling...and painting.

I am taking lessons from one of the best oil painting artists that I know of.  I don't know how to attach a link from the site, but Google "Suzanne Berry artist".  I am sure you will find her work magnificent!

Our pellet stove is on every day now.  It throws off a wonderful heat AND a lot of dust!  It costs 6 dollars a day to heat this home.  We don't have to run it every day yet.

I'm sorry that I have been so tardy in posting but I do read your blogs and am enjoying all of your adventures.  I promise to do better.

This fellow continues to visit often.  I wonder where he goes in the winter?

Off to work now!

  2. I can't get my head around 12 hour shifts. I do like your goals.

  3. Congratulations on your full-time employment! Nursing is one of the most important careers I know. I'm not sure how you do the shift work, I would last about 2 hours, but it's great that you can do it...and love it! :-)

    Suzanne does beautiful work. I thought the bowl of eggs was a real photo! You must feel very fortunate to be taking lessons from her.

  4. I'd love to take painting lessons some day, now is just too busy.
    Nursing is a very noble profession.12 hour shifts is quite demanding.
    Have a nice weekend, hope you can rest.

  5. Oh my, thank you so much Wendy for your gracious compliments!!! If you keep that up I might actually begin to believe I know what I'm doing! thanks again! chat soon.
