I haven't had the chance to go yet, but when I'm visiting my grandfather, I like to do yoga with Aradhika at her studio.

If you're in the area, you should check her out!

relaxing...I'm loving it =)

I'm in FL visiting my grandfather for a few days and it's been totally relaxing! It's a little chilly right the 50's, but it should be warming up as the weekend creeps forward...I think it's suppose to be about 80 on Saturday!

I'm catching up on a lot of things...visiting with my grandfather...getting more sleep...catching up on my reading...I brought 4 books with me...I've been switching between's nice to just be...nothing planned...except what to have for dinner =)

I hope everyone is enjoying their week.

Where did October go?

You's funny where the time take it for granted and the next thing you know you are in another month!!!

So here we are...practically in December (when I start my new job btw....12/1) and I can't even think about what happened to Oct.

A few highlights that I can remember between then and now...

1) Russ and Jan got married...10/3/09! It was a beautiful ceremony...and if you are on my Facebook you can see pics there.

2) It rained...ALOT. So much so that I'm considering my choices of faires for next year. To start off...I'm going to inquire about vending at Spring Caravan and see where it goes from there.

3) ALOT of drumming...well...not as much as I would like, but I was asked my Luis to join him in a troupe that will drum for Manhattan Tribal. I am super excited about that. I had rehearsal this past Saturday and got homework! It's's just been a while.

4) Carmina and have to know that context...and if you did...enough said =)

5) SLEEP...I was a little sick...I think I was run down from working 7 days a week for 3 months and it all just hit me. So at the end of the month I had an opportunity to do NOTHING and get some sleep. It was quite refreshing!

6) I got a new job, and I'm transitioning out of my old one...and I'm super excited to becoming a manager!!!! I can't believe I'm going to be responsible for 64 people!

7) Because I have a new job...and it comes with more responsibility...I'm looking to move that means...decluttering my place...trying to sell my place...and looking to buy another place....WOW is this a lot of work!

8) I'm taking a jewelry making class and LOVING it! I need to take pics of my work and post them up! It's very exciting!

9) I taught a C&I workshop in LI and it was super fun! I think it was a good balance between lecture, hands on and Q&A...yeah =)

ok...I think that's a good update for now...I'll try and do another one soon.
