Doing work you love is hard, but when you love it as much as I do, it seems mostly effortless. The only down side is that it takes up much of your time and life seems to fly by so very fast. Take for instance, my blog. My diary to my family, today and tomorrow, and to the world (not that the whole world is interested, but that it is open to everyone in it who is curious enough to look)
Summer is officially over, so there are a few things I want to jot down so I will not forget they ever happened. This Summer, I had some changes in my life; one was to say good bye to my accompanist, Maddie, who went to Notre Dame University to bigger and better things than playing at our sweet little chapel in the woods….
Here is one of our last pictures together. She was a very, very sweet young lady, who did a great job providing music for our Masses every week.
Another change in my life was that of work. I am still dedicated to my wonderful Precious Metal position, but am beginning to feel a shift in the industry in the area of gold buying parties. To create an excitement to my hostesses, I brought on It Works, Global on board as a sister business to create a stir, and it has. I have been buying gold and silver and wrapping bodies all summer long.
I have also cut 9 inches off my hair….
Children’s Day Festivities…
An impromptu photo session at the Water Tower Park…our annual trip down the shore and a trip to Tabor Lake!
Other highlights include the Baptism of Sonny where we got to see some old friends….
and finally, the beginning of school to get things back into order….
I am still singing weekly at Mass and a Funeral or 2 every month as well as Weddings now and again. I had a special treat when I got to see my Catholic Elementary School Principal, Sr. Ascenza, who I love very much. It wasn’t the best picture, but you can see how happy we are to see each other. 🙂
Overall, it was a great Summer and I am happy that fall is here to bring on new adventures in our loud, crazy life!
