Cooking, Sewing, Working, Traveling, Gardening and Pondering

Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential.

I don't have enough hobbies

You see, I like to learn things.  I love trying to do new things.  Sometimes, I really enjoy them, like sewing, and other times not so much, like scrape booking. 

Let me intro this with the fact that my dad, my brother, my cousin, several friends all do this.  I get to travel to really cool places and have not been able to do this yet because I was not certified to do this.  Sometime between now and the end of the year, I am going to Fiji for work.  Yes, I know crazy right?  Everyone tells me I need to extend the trip and do this there. 

A while back my husband went to the shop and asked all the questions, signed me up for the class and all around got me going on this.  So for the last month, I've been to the lectures and to the practical training. But on Sunday, I went for the real test. Can you guess what I'm doing? Yes, that's right, I'm learning to Scuba Dive!  On Sunday, I was able to complete 3 of the 5 necessary dives to get my NAUI certification.  Next Saturday, I hope to finish up so I'll be ready to go to Fiji when the time comes.

I'm really enjoying it and hope that I get do a lot more it in the years to come.

Here is where went diving - yes at dawn too!

And here is me getting ready to go scuba!

A couple things I didn't know - yes, you can get motion sickness from all the surges under water..not fun.  Sea urchins really can prick you through your 7 mil gloves.  You burn a ton of calories keeping yourself warm in the wetsuit.  It's a total body work out doing beach entries.
