I was back home by nine A.M. with lots of energy! Turned on some soft music and let the creative juices flow.

Cool because I usually start creating dollhouse miniature projects at ten in the evening until about three in the morning. During this time it's really nice and quiet with the occasional sound of my husband sleeping well, as he calls it, but I call it snoring. One wall of my workshop is adjacent to our bedroom. Sometimes with a little soft music that inspires my creativity, I may work until sunrise, then sleep until ten or eleven in the morning. But, now that I'm in training, 'early to bed - early to rise' is my new way of thinking. Going to bed so early? What about creativity? Well, I'm still being very creative and the soft music is still playing, but on the other side of the wall. How cool is that?!
Training is getting to be more fun as the weeks go by. We are still climbing hills and walking faster and faster, but the great feeling I get afterwards surpasses all the sweat, aches and pains I've endured. I was able to keep up with my grandsons during the week they were visiting and they even discovered that Grandma could be a lot of fun. We jumped up and down on the bed, went for walks and lots of fun things. After training last Thursday I was inspired that evening to take my grandson to a local high school basketball game. He was so excited and so was I. On Sunday morning I took him for a bike ride and ran to keep up with him. On Sunday afternoon my boys had to go back home and I still had lots of enery! Thank you God.

http://www.woodsvalentinemortuary.com/ and I eagerly seek her advice. Well, she said I must have my Dollhouse Miniatures by Felma website up and running by June 2011. That is her goal. I just love talking with goal setting people. They make my life so much more interesting and easier. I don't have to think, just do what they tell me to do. Yes, she is as brutal as Yolanda, but I don't see her every week, THANK GOD she is training for the Disney half marathon in another city, but I really enjoy our conversations about our minis. Yesterday, Yolanda worked us out like we were in Boot Camp! Two and a quarter miles uphill and yes, we had to come back down. And yes, I wanted to QUIT! Please click on the website to learn more about Janyce's family-owned business and read the bio for Janyce and her parents. Her father, Mr. Fred Valentine, just turned 92 years-young and works every day as President of the business. Her mom, Mrs. Arzella Valentine, published her first book on her 75th birthday and is encouraging me to publish my first book. WOW! Celebrating Life is starting to look a lot better at 61. Thank you God, thank you Yolanda, thank you Janyce and especially thanks to you Mrs. Arzella for encouraging me to write my book, "The Voice." But, please be brutal like your daughter and Yolanda. Make it easier for me and give me a deadline.
