How have all of you been? I see some of you are still holding down the blog "fort". I salute you! Although I have been quiet on my side of the screen, rest assured, I am still reading!
I can't believe tomorrow is going to be September already! This August has just flown by.
Yes, work has been dominating my time, however I also made a personal challenge to work on my fitness. For the past 4 months, I have been power walking 6-7 days a week at one hour to one and a half hour periods of time. Seriously, I had to do something! the poundage was packing on quickly, and it was time to make my body a priority. Because it can get really hot here in Sacramento, my walks have been starting anywhere from 6:30 to 7:30 in the morning! Ayee Dios! another challenge, because I am normally a tweaker who doesn't go to bed till about 3:00 am! (my creativity usually doesn't strike till midnight when all is calm here at home)
Now I find myself in bed by midnight and waking up without an alarm clock! Who knew?
It's all good. Although I am not keeping track of my weight, I have gone down two dress sizes! Yay! I am even more motivated to keep on going.
No, I haven't stopped creating. I am working on a two Shrine concepts. One for an upcoming show at SomArts Cultural Center in San Francisco and another for a Benifit hosted by Rebecca of Recuerda Mi Crazon.
I am also just about done for a Dia De Los Muertos Prototype project for another class I will be teaching at Santa Clarita Craft Lab in southern California this October. (I can hardly wait, by the way!)
Other than that, just been enjoying time home. Didn't really do any traveling this summer, but to the family cabin and a few road trips. A couple of weeks ago, I went to the charming town of San Juan Bautista. I hadn't been there since my third grade field trip. If you are ever in the area, I highly recommend it. Very cute town, excellent for window shopping and of course the beautiful mission.
Here are a few pics I ganked from the web.
