I got exciting news the other day from my niece in California. I'm going to be a Great Aunt! She is going to have a baby boy in Aug. I'm so excited for her. Now I get to go baby boy shopping for her. And hopefully make a trip to California this year. She asked me if I'd come out & see her & the new baby. That made me really happy she gave me that invitation. So I'm hoping to make that happen. It sure would be neat if I could. My niece's baby will make my grandma (who will be 102 in 2 months) a Great Great Grandma. Five generations for my family in August. That is pretty darn cool.
I had a photo shoot in February that went really well. The little girl was so cute. She made such a good photo subject. I've had a couple leads of interest for Senior Portraits, so I'm hoping to get to work with those folks. I'm taking my neighbor boy's Senior photos free of charge as his family is some real financial hard times because of his dad's recent serious illness. It was the least I could do for their family as they didn't think they'd get Senior Portraits for him. Hopefully, he will send his friends my way.
My Tulum & Maya book edits are going really well. I seem to be on a roll. Those Maya were certainly interesting people. A little on the crazy side, but interesting.
I joined a Fitness Club called Fitness 19. It's close to my house & only $18 a month. So I really have no excuses to not go. I started going every day, although today I took a day off as I'm pretty tired and sore. I got a one hour session with a personal trainer and it was a really good session. Much better than I had expected. He went over my goals and how to achieve them. Then he gave me a work out regiment and he went through all the equipment and exercises I need to do.
The weather is getting nicer every day, so I hope that means that winter is over. We did have a pretty short winter this year, which is good in my book. We usually get the March Madness NCAA College Basketball Tournament winter snow storm, so I'm still expecting that. But I sure am welcoming this nicer weather. It's nice that the sun doesn't set until around 6pm and when I drive to work I get to see the sunrise.
