long, longer, longest!

Well this is the longest I have gone without posting. Please spank me! I stared working again on September 8th and although I only work two days a week it has slammed me. Then I got the flu and was sick for 10 days. Now, I am surfacing and hope to be more regular with this. I am also taking a digital photography class through the school district to get re-certification hours. It meets thursday night for three hours. Have just finished the 7th of 10 sessions. Oh, and speaking of sessions. I have been playing at a local Irish bar every Sunday night in "Sessions". Sessions is a group of community people who get together and play tunes much as they do in Ireland. I play the bodhram (Irish drum). It is a lot of fun. We also went to a festival in a town about 100 miles away to play for a weekend. So I guess I have been busy! So there! I m going to post one of the pages I did for both Type+Writer at Jessicasprague.com and for my digital class. The pictures were taken at the high school where the class meets.

This will be it for today. I hope some folks are still reading my blog and if so I leave you with this thought as it is my birthday month and tonight makes the third party I'm going to for it! Guess I'm just a party animal!

Amen sistah! I agree... I will thoroughly wear out my wings before I turn them in! ;)

Glad to see you back, my friend.

You ARE a party animal Ann:) Happy birthday, welcome back, and pace yourself! You are busier than me, lol.

I may have mentioned this before, but a friend of mine in Iowa plays the bodhram (and sings) in a Celtic band...very cool!

Hi Ann! I'm really interested in seeing more what you do in a digital class! I'd love to take one of those! And wasn't Type+Writer great!

Welcome back Ann and Happy Birthday! I know real life gets in the way of scrapping, blogging and everything else so catching is always hard to do!

Well Hey there! Welcome back and Happy Birthday!!!! I remember those pics you have on that page, they are awesome! So sorry to hear you were sick. It has been going around here too. I wish I could take a photography class locally, I have to look into that. Sounds like you are having a ball, keep it up!
