sometimes fortune cookies are true

The last time I pulled a fortune out of a cookie, it said "An unexpected event will soon make your life more exciting".  I liked it so much that I stuck it on my fridge, and forgot about it.

Now a wonderful opportunity has fallen in my lap and it looks like I will be making a big life change in the next few months.  I saw the fortune on the fridge this morning, and it just made me smile.

I don't want to reveal the details quite yet, until things get ironed out, needless to say it is something I feel like I have been preparing to do for most of my life.  (here I am contemplating my future, this past September:)

While the timing initially felt quite off, with everything going on at ACES right now, all signs seem to be pointing me down this path.  And having just turned 50, it's a good time to reinvent myself!

Blogging will not be on my to-do list for the next few weeks, but I promise to share my news when I can.

In the meantime, perhaps you need some Chinese food and a cookie!

February has arrived!

Each year I am always so happy to say goodbye to January.  It may be my least favorite month of the year.  February brings thoughts of chocolate and cherries, you can notice the days starting to get a little longer, and it means that spring is that much closer.  Not to mention it is the shortest month of the year, so I try to make sure it is very productive.  How many books can I read?  How many socks can I knit?

And will the Groundhog see his shadow tomorrow?

(image from Google, I have never been fortunate enough to capture a Groundhog enjoying some flowers!)

By the end of the month, my tax package will have been delivered to my accountant (can I get a big WOOT WOOT from the crowd?), and I will have started perusing my old garden magazines for planting ideas.  YES!

I have been feeling the need to plan a project, beyond the usual of cleaning out the basement and attic.  I saw somewhere that a woman was planning to cook one recipe from all of her cookbooks, and I think that might be a fun idea.  Right now I won't tell you how many cookbooks I own, it is rather embarrassing, but needless to say I have lots of material to work with.  So starting next week, look for a new recipe to be tried and tested each week, along with a review of the cookbook I used.  It should be fun, and perhaps a way for me to get back to regular blogging.

What does February mean to you?
