My brother Mark got part in a short film called Stella: A Short Film. He plays a bartender and is in every scene.  he is a bit nervous about that but, also very excited. The film is still in development and casting...and they are accepting donations to help pay for the filming. Check it out Facebook is you are interested.

I will be heading to Seattle for three days this Friday. I am looking forward to the "big city fix" and shopping. We, my mum and I, are headed there both as a late, late, birthday present to me and to pick up Henriette (our past Norwegian exchange student) and her friend who are now stateside and traveling. They are going to use our house as a "jump off/homebase" for their travels.  So, this means we will have house guests off and on this month.

I am trying to get a jump on posting in my fashion blog this month by writing a few posts at a time and slowly publishing them. I also have to think up two posts for stylefeeder. So, that will keep me a little busy this month.

The weather is getting nicer so I am going to try and get out more now that the Winter Olympics are over. I was a bit sad to see the Olympics end because I have this fascination with watching people perform winter sports since I could never get into any of that myself. Today, the temperature hit 54 (F) and it was like summer....almost. My dad even mowed the lawn because we have no snow on the ground and only had dusting of snow all winter. Looks like spring my hit us early this year which is wild to think about since the Northeast, lots of the middle US, and Europe are covered in snow at this moment. I guess we get a break after two very heavy snow filled winters before this one.

I am going to work on answering a few letters that I have piled up starting tonight. I have only 5 letters waiting to be answered but, there are others on the way to me so I want to stay ahead of the postal mail. I have also started participating in postcrossing a bit more again. I had taken a break for a couple months and have slowly started sending out postcards through there again. So, I should be getting good postal mail in the coming weeks.

I am still trying to read more often but, I am coming up with no trades that go through at swaptree these days. I will keep trying and adding books as often as I can because I am not a fan of the local library because they never have the books I want and we are not allowed, as county residents, to check out books at the main library downtown. I also like to take my time reading books and can never tell how fast I will finish a book so the library is not the best place for me to feed my book reading obsession. I am in the middle of reading Phantom by Terry Goodkind and halfway through John Keats' Endymion poem. Hopefully, a trade will go through while I wait for my books I ordered from Amazon.

Okay, I am going to head off and clean the bathroom..if the mopping job on the bathroom floor is dry now.

Enjoy your shopping trip, I hope you pick up a few nice things :) I am in such a shopping mood right now, although I should be saving my money for my travel plans later in the year... there are some cute things in the shops though, it's so tempting!

I enjoyed the Winter Olympics as well, although it's quite nice to have my life back now they're over! Because of the time difference, most events I wanted to see were on early evening here, or I taped them in the afternoon, so I was spending almost all my free time after work watching it.

I need to replace some of my "good" shoes because they are looking beat up and worn so I am keeping an eye out for some clog style sandals or shoes that are modern looking and cool. They are quite popular right now and the clogs I had are beyond beat up. Not sure I will find them in Seattle but, it's worth a look.

I miss the Winter Olympics. I have a love for watching ski jumping, speed skating, and nordic events.

i am often impressed with how busy you keep yourself. you seem very dedicated to the things you do, and that's a good thing.

I like to keep busy. Even if I have no photo jobs going I like to have things to do so I don't get bored.
