The Piles of Projects

Life has been chaotic.. and quiet at the same time. Does that make any sense?

In some ways, my life has been pretty calm lately and quiet, but in other regards, projects, work... life has been piling up and I don't seem to be able to get enough done, and the projects keep piling. I am really trying to get things accomplished before I start my business and have that be a focus for me on top of my day job. I am not complaining, I love life... it just is busy... thought the images below were great demonstrations of it, and now they make me laugh a bit...

I get up early for work, not as early as others... but me at 5:00 in the morning is not the most cheerful.

Two laptops... ha ha, one is my new one, one is the old one I only use for very very random things... I thought it made me look crazy, and it also made me laugh seeing them both on... one backing up old videos and one where I was working on design projects.

Apparently... I am notebook hoarder... I have ideas or thoughts come all the time and grab notebooks or buy a new one forgetting I have any... ha ha.. I have now combined all the notebooks... 10 in total down to one, and got myself a pretty new planner and have been trying to get organized.. I have my own things going on, then I try to be at family things and plan the future out... so writing it all down in one grand planner has been nice.

The hard drives are for another day... another story, let's just say I am both, backing up these 6 hard drives, and restoring the files on 2 of them... It will take me a long time, but it is getting down slowly but surely...

Antelope Island with Emily

One of my favorite places in this world is Antelope Island... (2013, 2015, 2016 & 2017)  I have blogged about it a ton before... I love seeing the sunset there. A week ago, I had plans with some of the woman in my family, but due to sickness and some people having other things come up... we had to cancel. It made my niece Emily, really upset, which I totally get. As a kid when you have plans with grownups, having them fall through is always hard. Well I was not going to let it be a bad night at all. 

Within an hour of all the plans I called up my sister-in-law and asked if I could take Emily out for a special night, just the two of us. We went to Antelope Island to watch the sunset and then went to Artic Circle to have Milkshakes. 

It was a fun date to the island.... big drawback were the bugs.. so many bugs. I got bit more than I would like to admit and even a week and a half later I am itching.. oh well. 

Watching my niece though, watching her play and dance in the water and just be her, was magical... and special. I truly am blessed to have such an amazing niece in my life and to have a chance to spend time with her.

It was amazing to see all the Bison on the island.


Magical... truly magical
