Lots to tell this evening, so let me get to it…
I love the books and artwork by SARK, also known as Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy. I’ve always been a book hound, devouring books on the subjects that are close to my heart at any given moment in my life, and I’ve been building my library of art related books lately. Lots of titles on art journaling, my passion, as well as on collage, painting, altered books and art, and books on finding my creative self, etc…then I remembered SARK.
I read her book “Wild Succulent Woman” back in about 2000…around the time that I finally came to my senses and divorced my first husband (the one that put me through 20 years of emotional abuse and was a severe alcoholic.) I believe that the words of that book of hers that I read at that time in my life gave me a boost to my self esteem and helped me to feel "real” again which enabled me to walk away from that relationship that was so detrimental to me.
I have been using PBS (PaperBackSwap) for many of my books lately (you can sign up using the icon on my sidebar to the right…it’s awesome so you really should!) and a new one came today that I have been anxiously awaiting…
I can’t wait to dig into this wonderful book. I have another one of her books on the way, too.
Do any of you read and adore SARK the way I do?
Oh, and I worked a little part-time job today. Six hours at the drag race track…and I had a blast! Yea, really…I had fun at w.o.r.k! LOL Who have thunk it, huh? lol
I met with my new boss and will fill out paperwork next Friday and begin my new JOB (woot!) the following Monday. It’s real…the job is mine. YAY for me! The pay is good and so are the benefits…plus I’ll be working for the same company as my husband (but no, he is not the one that hired me, his big boss is who did) so if hubby moves up in the company and transfers somewhere, then I will automatically get a transfer, too.
And, my final piece of fabulous news for the day is that I have some goodies on their way to me, via a fabulous friend who loves me and knows how much I adore art supplies and how much I have been fantasizing about these luscious babies.
I have been dreaming of having a set of Caran D’ache Neocolor II crayons but just couldn’t find the extra dinero to buy them…but the universe is fabulous with Karma. I sent a large booty of jewelry supplies I had that I wasn’t using to a friend that is big into jewelry making…and she loves me so much that she is sending me a full set of 40 Caran D’ache Neocolor II’s!
OMG, do you know how HUGE this is? It’s truly art heaven, I tell ya! I’m so excited.
So much good stuff going on for me that I’m just all quivery with joy.
Last thing, I promise…
Guess what I did Tuesday afternoon?
I played THREE HOURS of tennis with the hubby, my daughters and son-in-law. You have no idea how good it felt to be out in the sunshine, cool breeze blowing, and actually using my muscles by running and serving and just having a ball (no pun intended. lol) We’ve been trying to play at least once a week the past 3 weeks (at hubby’s insistence to get me out of the house) but this time I really enjoyed and wasn’t just there to placate him. Loved it, I tell ya…even the muscle aches I still have from the workout I got on the court.
Oh man, y’all have no idea how good I feel right now. But it’s late, 12:33 a.m. to be exact, and I am really beat so it’s time to hit the hay.
I hope that joy is ever present in your life and you, too, are Living Juicy!
Peace & Love,
