Stayin’ Alive…

Just popping in to say I’m still alive! Lot of changes around here lately- it’s been a whirlwind!

Through a series of interesting circumstances I will not go into here, I have landed my dream job!! I started work last Monday at Finger Lakes Ambulance as a full-time dispatcher,  part-time driver/EMT! I am SO excited to actually be working in EMS! The job is interesting and my co-workers (quite a few of whom I have known for 12-15 years) are great to work with. AND I wear a uniform! No more deciding what to wear to work, or if those shoes match this shirt! It’s a uniform shirt, EMT pants, leather boots, reflective coat. End of story. Once I am trained I will work overnights in dispatch. No more days! I am so not a morning/day person. I am very happy :)

I also had a great week last week because my mommy and daddy came to see me for Thanksgiving! It was SO great to see them and spend time with them! We had a blast, going wine tasting and visiting a family favorite place, The Wizard Of Clay in Honeoye, NY. They bought me a birthday present from there and it’s so beautiful…


Isn’t it amazing? The crystals grow as the piece is fired in a kiln at a set temperature and each one is unique. There is no way to control the crystal growth. I just love looking at it.

Last but not least, and mostly due to my new job, I am moving from Fairport, NY to Canandaigua, NY in January. I am excited, and it will be a LOT closer to my job. Right now I have a nearly 30 mile commute. Once I move it will be about 10.

I haven’t been crafting at all and am considering de-stashing on Etsy. I’ll let you all know if I do that since I will have good prices ;)


  1. Congrats on the new job! Glad you found what you desire and good luck with the move.

  2. Wow!! Congratulations. Lots of changes going on there.

    I love that vase!!!
