02/22/2007: "Say "Hello" to my little friend!"

So, tonight while getting dressed to play racquetball with K...I noticed a new muscle (or part of one) that I've never seen before...ever! It was very exciting. I've been lifting weights 3 times a week for several weeks now and I'm finally starting to see a difference. Of course, I'm just a beginner and I can't lift much at all...but it's a start.

See, muscle burns more calories than fat so the more muscle you have, the more you can eat. And no one loves eating more than I do!

In other news, the weather here has been beautifully snowy lately. The dry kind of powdery snow that is wonderful to ski on. I hope to get out there skiing tomorrow after attending the first day of the Alaska Library Association's annual conference which is being held in Juneau this year.

Normally I'd be presenting something at it, or volunteering in some way...but I admit I've gotten a bit stingy with my time. Still, I will be attending Fri-Sun and I'm looking forward to hooking up with all my librarian friends from around the state. We're a lot crazier than you'd imagine; being a research librarian is the coolest job ever!

Have you hugged a librarian today???

I enjoyed hearing you rant and rave about the conference last night, just don't tell your boyfriend that you've been chatting with me on the phone whilst in the bathtub. Total conversation killer. Yup.

I am hugging you virtually!!! So happy for your muscles - I hope I will have some one day too. :) The body starts looking completely different, right?
Hey, post some winter photos. I miss Alaska even more when you are writng about the great weather.
P.S. If I weren't a teacher I would be a librarian. This job IS cool. :)

Hey Elise,
The reason I closed my e-bay store was because I wasn't consistent and there wasn't the payoff I was looking for.
But. If you want to do e-bay don't let me discourage you. If you want I say go ahead. got some beautiful artwork Alaska and nudes people love that stuff anyway. Just market yourself and play the game.
A very successful artist on e-bay is the Raw Artist.
I like most her art and she is an interesting person.

I'm very glad you're back.
:doze: :doze:
