The Woman Behind The Keyboard

18 Aug

aka, Meet the Author

Hey, guys!  I just thought that perhaps it was time to give you all a peek behind the ‘curtain’ so to speak.  Give you a face to put with the words.  (Photos at the end of the post)

I’m not especially good at talking about myself, but I’ll start with the basics.  I just turned 33 recently.  I don’t have children, and I don’t expect to at this point.  I was married for a little over 5 years in my early twenties, and divorced by 27.  Nothing wrong with the guy, other than he just wasn’t the one for me;  I was in love with the idea of being married, and jumped the gun.  Currently, I am working on two years with a wonderful man who I adore very much, and we live together in a home we rent not far outside of Richmond, VA along with a housemate that he’s known since high school.

AoK, Wal-Mart, Amusement Parks & Photography

15 Aug

So, I decided that I wanted to Commit some Kindness myself, and I have an idea of what I’m going to do, but I don’t want to say what it is, yet.  I got the supplies today though, so I’m hoping that tomorrow I’ll be able to post (with pictures) about what it is I am considering.

I did, however, manage to sneak in an Act of Kindness tonight.  We had to go shopping for a few things, and since we’re on night shift hours, the only place to go was Wal-Mart.  Now, if any of you have ever been to Wal-Mart at 1:30 a.m., you know that there’s not a real cash register open, just the self check-out lines (which I hate, because they cost people jobs, which we sorely need in this country right now).  We managed to get checked out without having to utilize the assistance of the woman who stands there and helps those of us who are losing the battle with the machine, but she needed to go help someone else, and I happened to glance up when she walked past, and she had the most sour look on her face.  She looked like one UN-happy person.

I had brought a pen and some sticky notes with me in my purse because before we left the house, I’d had half a mind to write notes and randomly leave them around the store, but I never actually did it.  So, I decided that for my act of kindness, I would write her a note on my pink, heart-shaped sticky note and leave it on her monitor while she was away.

I wrote, “Have a nice evening!” and as we walked past her little podium, I reached over and quickly slapped it on the screen (I heard some beeps when I did this, I really hope I didn’t cause too much havoc!) and continued walking.  I sincerely hope that this bit of mystery might brighten her night.

Before this, we had decided to take a trip to the local amusement park (to which we have season passes).  I had wanted to bring my camera so that I could take some photos in the park, but I was afraid that I might have to leave it sitting somewhere if we wanted to ride a ride, so I thought it best to leave it behind.  I was pretty disappointed about this, but I decided I’d try to take some decent pics with my cell phone.  Here are a few (you can make them bigger by clicking on them):

Extraordinary Tuesday (Photography Challenge Photos)

23 Jul

So, earlier today, I challenged you guys, and myself, to go out and take pictures of everyday things, and different angles.  I’m not sure how well I did with the challenge, I guess I’ll let you all be the judge of that.  Be sure to click the ‘Continue Reading’ link to see all the photos!
