A Cozy, Connected Home

Last you read, I was taking the long way home. No longer was I putting down roots in Tennessee. Instead, I was returning to my Nebraska roots.

Here I sit, in my cozy, connected home in Lincoln, Nebraska. A die-hard Cornhusker fan, I have the pleasure of driving by Memorial Stadium multiple times per week when I drive through the capital city. I love it.

In my last post, I proclaimed my belief that a community of people would be waiting for me in Nebraska. I’m pleased to report I found that community. I have taken up rightful residence in the Lindsay-shaped hole in Lincoln.

God is faithful to deliver on His promises. I am living proof. Since moving back to Nebraska, I’ve paid off my credit card debt, paid off my second-to-last student loan and purchased a house. It’s amazing what a stable income and financial determination can do.

And what pays the bills? Good question. I have returned to one of my life’s greatest passions. I have a full-time career as a writer. As a bonus, I can add photographer to my resume, because I take photographs on the regular, too.

Memory Bank Full

Sad news…

My laptop has 2% free memory. That is not much. I’m looking into purchasing an external hard drive. I would like to get a new computer, but first I need to pay off the keyboard I purchased.  So I’ll do the external hard drive thing for awhile. 

My piano lessons are going well. I’m learning a lot from my wonderful teacher. She’s such a music nerd, but that means she teaches me lots of interesting things.

I found out I play the piano better when I balance on one leg than when standing on two. If I think too much about what I’m trying to play, then I mess up. This mostly happens when I’m practicing scales. It’s pretty interesting. Sometimes I close my eyes and do better that way too.

Last weekend, I went to Atlanta for the National Fourssquare Women’s Gathering. I’d never toured Atlanta before so it was fun to go to the Geogria Aquarium and the World of Coke. It was also great to lisen to the speakers and hear their inspiring stories.

I’m considering getting my own website. I think it would be good for me to have one. Why? Cuz I’m a freelance writer. I’d like to perhaps write a book some day. I need a place to direct people. I’m feeling led to create one. I don’t know what God has for my future, but I think it will involve a website. I want to write songs with my new piano playing skill. Maybe God is taking me to a greater level of prominence with my writing. Maybe music publishers will look at the site one day and decide to use my songs. *shrug* I don’t know.

Dominic Delorme is a great GPS. I think he is quite effective. We’ve found several geocaches since I purchased him. I’m excited that the weather is getting warmer because that means more time outside geocaching.

Hope you enjoyed my little update. I hope to post more soon.
