Bring the happy!

I’m late this week, I usually have this written the night before and scheduled to post automatically Thursday morning.  I got lost in another post, scheduled for tomorrow, which happens to be my 200th.

WordPress

An amazing platform that has provided me the ability to express myself in ways that would never have been possible in physical life.  There are so many great and fantastic writers on here it’s easy to lost large chunks of time just reading.  I’m happy that a platform such as this one actually exists and has stood the test of Internet time and continued to be relevant for so many years.

Prospect of a New Job

Wrote earlier this week about the prospect of a new job.  I had my screen call yesterday with the head hunter that cold called me last week and it went well.  The company sounds awesome and it would definitely be a stretch challenge putting me into uncharted territory from a career perspective.  I’m excited to make it to the next round which is probably going to be a face-to-face.  That’s when I get a better idea of the company and the people.  I’m happy where I am, so the questions I will have for the hiring manager will be blunt and aggressive as I’m not desperate to find a new job and have nothing to lose.  Should be an intersting experience.

Fall

It’s finally and officially fall here in the northeast.  We had our first frost yesterday morning and it was an amazing site to see the sparkly glint on everything as the sun came up.  I wish I had snapped a picture of it, but my phone was not on me at the time I took the dog out and it was too late in the morning when I did have my phone later.  I’ll have to remember to get a picture at our next frost.  This is one of my favorite times of year because I know 1) allergies are going away, 2) winter is around the corner, and 3) i’ll have as much Pumpkin Pie as I can handle for at least the next three months.

Three Things Thursday – 09/29/2016

Vehicles in the garage!

The determination I had this past weekend to get both cars into our garage was immeasurable. Several hours on both days were required to get the clutter moved or thrown out to clear out enough space all around to get the cars inside. We were definitely spoiled from our old house as the garage was absolutely huge. The new house unfortunately doesn’t have that kind of space and we barely get them in with only a few inches to spare to close the doors each night. There is still some “vertical” hanging space to occupy for the bikes once we get the hangers that will make pulling in a lot easier.  I just need to let the cuts and blisters on my hands heal first 😦

Cooler weather

The weather here in the Northeast U.S. has finally broken from summer and has been in the 40’s overnight and the 70’s during the day. Humidity is gone, finally, making the days super awesome to be outside. My daughter has even chosen to play outside with her friends rather than stay inside playing Xbox or watching YouTube videos of MineCraft or Five Nights at Freddies. Burning off energy has been awesome as well as she goes to sleep without a fight each night.

Cello in the house again

My daughter told us about 2 weeks ago that she wanted to continue playing the Cello. I was all too happy to go rent the Cello from the local music store and bring it home. She has started practicing again on a regular basis and I’m so glad to be hearing music again in the house. I grew up playing the Violin, Alto Saxophone, and Barritone Saxophone; playing well into my high school years. Was pretty good at it too. Her ability to pick up technique and just play the music is amazing and something I never had. I’m wishing really hard she keeps with it and turns it into a life long passion.

TTT Music Album Recommendation

Each week I’ll be adding a recommendation for some good rock or new metal that I discovered over the past week. I listen to music at least 3-4 hours every day and have been doing so for as long as I can remember. Spotify has become my absolute favorite music service and is the ONLY one I pay for. My taste has changed a few times, but I always come back to rock, metal, new metal, etc.
