March and John’s hobby

We had a wonderful weather change this weekend. The temps were in the 40s on Saturday! Plus it was sunny and we went out and soaked up some vitamin D.  I also participated in the Women’s march here locally:

I don’t think there were as many people as last year, but it was probably fairly close. The warmer weather sure helped, even though the sidewalks were still pretty sloppy. Seriously – not many people do a really good job on clearing the walks.

I still work too much on weekends. Lots of computer related stuff with the businesses. I’ve been taking some online marketing courses.  Skill Share has a promotion now for 3 months for 99 cents, which gives you access to tons of videos on all subjects from hobby stuff to business stuff. It’s like a rabbit hole looking at all the possibilities there, including metalsmithing, photography, and kanzashi ribbon flowers (so cool!) I’m trying to concentrate on business stuff right now, but I have a few hobby things bookmarked to watch. Like I need anything else to do…

John started working with stained glass last year. He made a lot of christmas gifts for others and now that is all finished, he can do things for us. He had done my business logo in glass, which came out really nice:

Now he is working on trying mosaics.  Here is the glass after he cut out the pattern:

It’s going to get mosaiced (is that a word??) into that frame and grouted in.  I have all of these visions for him to do a million garden stained glass pieces for me. I’m not sure he has those same visions, though LOL!   I’ll have to have him send me pictures of his other pieces he did that were sent to others. It’s very cool!

I’m trying to make sure I get relaxing in. We had couch time with football today:

My face is red because I was trying all kinds of angles to take a picture and was laughing too much at how unflattering they were. 😀  Too bad the Jaguars lost. I’m so tired of seeing the Patriots in the superbowl – sorry Pats fans.

On to a new week! My goal this week is to write down a stretching/body weight exercise routine to schedule in. Part of my getting organized plan for 2018. 🙂

    john’s glass is beautiful!

    I wasn’t able to attend any of the local marches because once I realized they were happening I was already scheduled to work. But I heard from friends that the one in Hartford had more people than last year. I need to remember to block January 20th off on my calendar because I think this stuff is important.

    You and me both on the Patriots so I’m saying GO EAGLES!

    That’s a great picture of you and John. 🙂

    I’m glad you went to the women’s march again – I loved seeing how strong the turnout was for year two.

    Wow on John’s stained glass – I’d love to see more!

    The stained glass is intriguing. If I didn’t have so many other hobbies, I’d be interested in trying it!
