Happy Easter!

You know, usually I put off the holiday photos until a more convenient time. As you might imagine, that time never comes. At Christmas, I decided I wouldn't let that happen; I was going to do it right away... Have you seen them? Exactly...

Well, today is different!
Check out for today's Easter photos!

I hope you had a great holiday.

I was Tagged!

Karen of Scottsdale tagged me to participate in the birthday game. (A quick search showed Wikipedia is the best place.)

Website Finished for ECR

Now, I can show you what I've been working on...
(And why I knew I wouldn't have much time to post here.)

I just released a new website for East County Referrals, Inc.

(Just for the record, other recently released projects include Rattan Interiors and insuranceQuote2Go.)

The new site went live last evening. Since then, I've been tying up loose ends, emailing members announcing the release, and organizing both my mental and physical work spaces.

There's a rush and feeling of euphoria as a site goes live. It's exciting, and I anticipate the feedback I'll receive over the next few weeks. Of course, I hope for good words, but that's not always the case! ...Sometimes it seems certain projects are never done!

There is also a tendency to veg... to procrastinate... to want to do nothing. It's interesting how as you develop a project, your momentum carries you on (for the most part). At the end, there's joy, as I mentioned, but there's also a tremendous weight... and it's hard to do anything else.

Oh well... No time for joy or sorrow... Can't let the weight drag me down... There's too much to do!

On to next project.

... well, maybe first to bed.
