Random Rambling

I am completely captivated with the lake view I have today. Although, I must confess it’s quite distracting. Too many times I’ve sat down ready to write up a post for the blog and poof, all thoughts go out the window as my eyes rise up over the laptop and stare out the window. I swear it seems the water just glitters beneath the sunlight. It’s truly lovely. I am now officially house and dog sitting for friends (as mentioned in a previous post). Spending my week with the sweetest puppies (a Yorkshire terrier and a Pomeranian) as I enjoy the spoils of such pretty views. If not for the heat wave Michigan, or at least this part of the state is going through I would probably be tempted to dive into the lake. Now that probably sounds odd given most people love being in the water on a hot day, but I had a heatstroke when I was seventeen, so for me there is such thing as too hot! All I can say is thank goodness for air-conditioning on these kinds of days!

Today I am planning on getting more work done with the touch ups to the blog layout. I do have colors picked out, but I am tweaking and testing on a top secret account. ;) Going to make sure I’m completely satisfied with it, before I just up and put it in place. I’m also going to check out my account with the company I use for my domain name, to try and link it together better with here. I often find that just putting in does not have an RSS feed attached. I need to figure out how to fix this. I also need to conquer this Pinterest site that seems to have so many people excited. LOL! I did sign up to get my invitation and received it, I just haven’t had a moment to sign up and take a closer look just yet.

Working on design stuff for my sites though, definitely have me feeling quite excited for college days ahead. Nope, I’m not a current student and I never made it to college. Heck I confess that I dropped out of high school. Here I am though at 27 years old facing my past mistake and moving forward in life. I am going to be working on getting my GED in the very near future, then onto college education. In college I want to study web and graphic design. Now that’s not to take away from my aspirations as a writer, but I don’t see any harm in having a backup plan or even getting a steady career going for myself while I continue to pursue writing. Writing is my number one passion and I definitely want to take classes to improve my skill, but here again – I just don’t see harm in having a backup plan in case things don’t work out quite as I hope them to.

Alright, now in an attempt to wrap this post I’m going to make a confession. I have been a bad girl and haven’t been going for walks since I’ve been out in the country. It seems I miss the trail I was taking. I’m looking forward to getting home and being able to take it again. As I’ve come to realize with myself that I just don’t like going for a walk in a neighborhood. I like the seclusion and peacefulness the path I take provides. Now it’s not like I’ve just been sitting on my butt doing nothing since being away from home. I just haven’t been going for the mile walk or some sort of obvious workout. In all fairness, there is a heat wave (or feels that way) going through as I’ve already mentioned.

Okay so this post was kind of just some rambles squished together, but there you have it. LOL! Now I am off to get some things done, and then guzzle my coffee while I further work on design stuff. Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!
