A few of my favorite things besides music:
Riding my turquoise beach bike
Books - I read more in the summer on the beach under my umbrella with 100% UVA protection and lathered in sunblock. It is so relaxing to watch the waves and the seagulls and the people that congregate on the beach.
One of my recent books - THE AMATEUR ~ Barack Obama in the White House - extremely interesting read
Funny what Shred said about politics (not to be discussed here of course), I've never been more interested, watched both conventions... Gotta' quote John Lennon - JUST GIVE ME THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!!! That would MAKE MY DAY
Gardening - Love flowers, plants, trees etc. etc. My first college degree was in Horticulture. My first job with this degree was to work for an interior plantscaping company. My dream job at that company was to be the designer who picked all the plants according to light meter readings and designed the space. When a newer employee came in and got that position, because she was sleeping with boss, I left and started my own business. I made more money from 2 accounts working 7 hours a week than I did from working 40 hours a week with the old job. I paid my own way for night school with some college loans and got a business degree and shifted gears... That first job out of college was my most valuable life lesson!
Bicycling - Love my new beach bike that my hubby gave me for Christmas and he tuned into getting me the color I would have picked without me telling him. (its the little things My bike gave me so much freedom as a kid, I rode everywhere, I never lost that fun feeling even when I got a car and I love the wind in my face while working my thighs!
Sports - I love watching all kinds of sporting events, especially baseball, basketball & football and the NHL playoffs. I have a flexible work schedule whereby I plan work around game times, so I can watch and work from my desk and computer.
P.S. Natasha!! Wow, love all the stuff you've made and I like your shed, I want a fancy version of that. I want a little house in the backyard with window boxes (like a doll house the size of a big shed) that would be utilized as a potting shed, etc.. I want to paint it the colors you see of the homes in Bermuda and decorate it for Christmas with lights. (keep the lights up all year and light it up for parties) I want to be able to see it from my kitchen. I wouldn't mind having a green house either...
