A tad busy; assignments, gardening, and new stitches, oh my…

Posted by on April 19, 2012 at 7:50 pm.

The past few days have been busy, which meant I haven’t had a chance to respond many of the comments on Celebrate Life. Thanks for responding, I should be able to get to those this weekend.

This morning I finished a few clients projects. Which means, I have the entire weekend to spend with my daughter. Yeah! I’m looking forward to that.

Also this morning, an article that I’d written on one of my business sites went viral, and so that’s received more activity than normal. I must say,  it’s been interesting seeing the amount of activity/sales that’s generated. The thing is, I wrote that article last year.

That site has done well monetarily, but I’m seeing a nice jump because of a recommendation from someone I never even met. I write under a pseudonym with my business sites.

I’ve received an award

The lovely and talented knitter; Michelle, of Will Knit for Food, awarded me with; The Versatile Blogger award, and so I’ll be linking to her tomorrow, and posting my selections for ‘Versatile blogger’. I do hope you stop by and check out some of the sites I’ll be mentioning. With some, I’ve ‘known’ the bloggers for a while, and others are fairly new to me; the bottom line they’re great bloggers, and I hope you stop by their virtual homes and say hello.

Playing in dirt

Earlier this evening, we planted flowers outside, or should I say “I planted them.”

My eight-year old daughter got distracted by playing., and who could blame her? It’s a beautiful day in Maryland, and so I took regularly paused to watch her frolic about the yard, while I planted the lovely flowers. I’ll post pictures this weekend.posting that tomorrow.

Smelling the roses

Thankfully my day is winding down, and now I’m hanging with my daughter. I’m in the process of learning a beautiful crochet stitch; shell stitch.

    Hi Jeremy,

    I agree, regardless of how busy I am, I make time to enjoy life. Which means, I spend a good bit of time with my daughter, learning to multi-task has been extremely helpful.

    Thanks for stopping by…

    Hi Laura, I wasn’t expecting the award, but I’m pleased. It’s the first one I’ve received on this site. Then again, I’ve only started promoting the site recently.

    @Anna, Don’t sell yourself short, it wasn’t too long ago when the only thing I remembered as a child was the chain stitch. If you click on the link ,crochet stitch it will direct you to a post that shows the basic crochet stitches. Those are the exact ones I used towards the end of last year. I’ve completed a lot of crochet projects since that time, so if you’re interested in learning, check it out. 🙂
