Check out the shirt I just got John for his birthday next month. From Bean, of course! LOL!

It’s Halloween time at the office! Got all of my decorations up!

Fall Fest time!

The hubby and I spent a lovely afternoon at a local fall fest, enjoying the gorgeous weather and eating lots and lots of apple cider donuts! LOL!

Always on the hunt for something new and creative to do, yesterday my friend from work and I went to Plant Nite. We made terrariums! Such a neat event! We had a great time making our little creations. There were about 20 women there. We laughed a lot and encouraged each other in our creative terrarium endeavors and just had a really fun time. :-) My friend loved it! We brought our terrariums into work today and everyone was quite jealous. :-)

On duty!

“Officer Miller” was on traffic control duty yesterday for the police department! We had a 5k race going through town and we didn’t want any runners hit by a car. :-) Had a great time with my buddies Alex, Nick and Bob.

Check out the adorable new bathroom set I just ordered last night. Kitties everywhere! :-)

Had a great time on Friday with another trip through the park district. We went zip-lining! While this was very tame in comparison to the zip-lining I did on the top of Grouse Mountain in Vancouver, I still had a good time. I’d been wanting to check this place out for awhile, so when this opportunity came along I jumped on it. I think I’d like to go back, because we didn’t do the full 8-line course. All of the women I was with were fantastic! Did I mention their average age was 62? :-) None of them had ever done zip-lining before and they loved it! Another thing checked off their bucket list, they told me. I want to be like them when I’m a senior citizen! LOL!

It’s a great day! First, it’s my Friday at the office because I’m off tomorrow to take another trip through the park district to go zip-lining at Zip Chicago ( Then my new TV is being delivered this afternoon. Then a new comic book store opened up around the corner from my house. And it’s our quarterly bonus day (the one I automatically get & don’t have to fight for) and finally we had breakfast delivered in for my co-worker’s birthday. Not bad for a Thursday! :-)

Sometimes I love being a graphic designer, especially went it comes to freelance jobs my co-workers frequently come to me for. Case in point - a gal at the office is getting married in three days and just now realized she was missing all of this signage she needed for the reception, thank you cards and a poem for her father. She came to me in a panic, wanting to throw money at me to do everything for her. “Whatever you want to charge me! I don’t care! Can you do this??” One day and $150 later, she had it all. And I’ve got extra spending money in my pocket! Win-win!

Happy 5th Birthday, Bean! You were the runt of your litter and the only one not adopted at the shelter because you were tiny and a bit sickly. But when you reached through the bars of the cage and grabbed the brim of my hat, you grabbed my heart. And now look at the pretty, healthy girl you are, causing us plenty of mischief on a daily basis! :-) And you finally grew into those ears! LOL!

And here are some photos from the four days I spent in Vancouver, Canada after coming back from the Alaska cruise. We did a hop-on-hop-off trolley tour, went to Stanley Park and Prospect Point, Capilano Suspension Bridge and Grouse Mountain (where I went zip-lining!)

Hey guys! I’m baa-aack! Did ya miss me? :-)

My cruise to Alaska was AMAZING! Simply breathtaking. Now I understand why everyone who goes just loves it. I would go back in a heartbeat!

I barely had any internet connection the entire two weeks, so I couldn’t get anything posted here, so here are some of my favorite photos from Alaska I went dog sledding, took a floatplane ride and a canoe trip out to the base of a glacier, among many other things!

In preparation for tromping all over God's green earth in Alaska next week, I've been a walking fool lately, especially at work. My desk is on the 4th floor so I've only been taking the stairs all day. Then I've been walking around the lake (in my snow boots to break them in, looking like an idiot in 80 degree weather ) and on my trek last tonight I came across this very happy, colorful rock laying on the side of the path! I took it home to take a picture and tomorrow I'm going to put it out on a different part of the path to make someone else smile. 😃

Fresh meat!

 Ohhhh, my! We have a new employee in my department as of today and holy cow is he good looking! LOL! Young guy, late 20’s-early 30’s, tall, fit, short dark hair, a bit of stubble, great voice. And we’re a department of ALL women. This poor guy! LOL!

 Last night I got myself and the hubby booked for two more trips through the park district. In September I'm off to do some zip-lining at Zip Chicago. Woot! ( I'm doing this one myself, so it'll be weird to be on the bus without John. But then in October we're off to Starved Rock State Park ( to take a trolley ride through the park to see the gorgeous fall colors. I haven't been to Starved Rock in probably 20 years, so I'm definitely looking forward to going back. Have I mentioned how much I love my park district?

Hey all! If anyone’s interested - I wrote fanfic!

Title: The Journey
Author: agt_spooky
Pairing: Michael Stonebridge/Damien Scott
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 45,080
Disclaimer: I don’t own them, more’s the pity. Just borrowing!
Notes: Three things intrigued me about the first episode of season four: First, Damien was sporting a new tattoo on his inner forearm. Second, Damien’s statement to Michael in the plane: “It was always the plan to come back to Twenty, right Mike?” and third, the California Highway Patrol officer’s statement to Michael and Damien: “You’ve got traffic violations in six states from here to Alaska!”. So it got me to thinking about what could have happened during that long road trip…
Summary: Two soldiers. Two motorcycles. Six states. One road trip that will change Michael and Damien’s relationship forever, bringing them closer than they ever imagined.

The Journey:

 Bought one of those GoPro cameras for my trip to Alaska, for the dog sledding, zip-lining, whale watching, helicopter & floatplane rides. Spent a good part of yesterday messing with it, trying to choose the right video resolution, using the head strap, the chest harness, etc. Got my exercise wearing it and riding my bike around the lake multiple times for test runs! But I've got it all figured out now and I'm ready for the cruise! Just two weeks to go!

 My Strike Back fanfic story is officially out of control. 45,000 words! Holy crap! The good thing is, I will be typing THE END today, putting a stop to the madness. :-) I had no idea it was going to get so long, but it felt great to write something just for fun. I’ve already got an idea how to finish another one I started years ago. :-)

 Stopped on my way home from work yesterday and bought a cup of lemonade from two adorable little girls standing on my street corner. They told me it was $0.50. I gave them a $5 bill and told them to keep it. You should have seen their faces! LOL! Hey, it's darn hot out and I used to do the same when I was a kid. They deserved it. ☺️

Flipped my calendar over this morning to August and there written in big, red letters is ALASKA just three weeks from today! Can’t believe it’s been about a year since we booked the trip and it’s nearly here. Finally! LOL! My excitement pretty much knows no bounds at this point. I know this is going to be one of those “trips of a lifetime” and I can’t wait for it to start!
