ReadingPicked up a very interesting books for the library last week, Yeah Dave's Guide to Livin' the Moment- this yoga instructor (David Romanelli) shares his Zen approach to happiness in this guide to the care and feeding of a live-the-moment .

WatchingAfter moving in together with my boyfriend, I have not had time to watch regular tv, but we have been watching a lot at movies at home. I've discover redbox $1 movie rental. It seems everything has increased in price, even renting movies. Redboxis an kiosk that is located in a grocery store or retail store and you just use your card to rent a movie. You are changed a $1 a day. This really works for a sista on a budget.
Napoleon Hill author of Think and Grow Rich. I read this book some years ago, but lately I have been totally inspired to go through it again and do more research on the stories of Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and other millionaires. I am so inspired to look for other ways to boost my income and Napoleon Hill's book is my jump start.

I am still teaching my students the art and craft of creating eye catching visual presentations. We have now moved on to creating print presentations. I first have to teach them Adobe InDesign. Many of them already know Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop. So learning InDesign should be an easy learn. In the students other computer courses, they are taught from a book. In my lesson I want to teach them what they need to know and how to translate what they have learn to real world applications.

At my place of work: I am still working on the blog for the Art Institute of Charlotte. I am using blogger.com to create this blog. And since I use typepad as my blogging platform, using blogger requires me to think a little more about what I can and can not do.
At the Art & Design Studio: Working on a website for a friend. I spent most of the week deciding on a domain name that was suitable for his art business. I am thinking of using Square Space as my hosting and web design service.
Ok I love the summer, but I love the Fall fashions more. I received the Fall Chadwicks catalog. And on page 4 was this really cute boyfriend cardigan with a print cami. It is so cute. It will look great with my new grey boots from Target.
I am still working on completing my doctorate degree from Argosy University. I decided to take the summer off to relax my mind and to prepare for my last year of study.
I am praying to end this year on a good note. To maintain a budget and to bring more wealth into my home. Check out Keep Your Song by Joel Osteen it is very uplifting.
Peace & More Love, Alease
