The air is more crisp after a rain.

…colors and scents sublime.

seasons of time; not so much reason…

take our breath away

Seas the moment!! *splash*

 

…well in between the storm(s)

Dream Big is doing it again!!!

I remember meeting Dream Big in July; one of the many appeals then was that his posts were under 500 words (I go cross-eyed after awhile, especially in class!) Anyway, high fives and pay it forward if your working this weekend.

my twitter: @trudistreasures and @parkerfinance

Personally I need to get some 3D work done today!

Go, forth and post, reblog and all that jazz.

More than one of me?

so.

You hear about “googling” yourself. I had done this not long after joining wordpress and obtaining this .com url.

All along my friends would love what I created and want me to “getawebsite for product.” I’m working on it and it is underconstruction for the time being. until then dear readers when you search Trudi’s Treasures, here are some gems found.

1. My first discovery was of a jeweler artist in Hawaii.  Cool mahalo.

2. A lady with splendid taste selling her high end treasures in New Jersey.

3. One who is into creation of beautiful quilts in Ohio and another one in Texas.

4. Trudie’s Treasure hutz in Tacoma, WA.

5. Trudie’s Treasures in Orange City, FL.

6. Trudie’s Treasures consignment boutique in Ho-ho-kus, NJ (also on pinterest)

7. A Trudi’s Treasures on facebook.

8. A posting of Trudi’s Treasures “deviantart” online – with pics of cats included~

9. One in SCOTLAND.

10. Treasures by Trudi (another facebook).

11. Trudi’s handmade treasures (fb).

All of the above are not me!

What is cool and endearing in the common denominator (aside from treasure) is the taste and appreciation for beauty, uniqueness and solidarity.

Thankful am i to be a part of the ‘net’ flow of treasures by trudis….as there is truly “nothing new under the sun.”

Thankful for sun.

Stay tuned for my product line.

Truly,

Tru~

 

Confession

My name is Trudi and I am a recovering IT person’s NIGHTMARE. To think that at one time I seriously believed that the regular use of computers, let alone internet and social media was a CHOICE! Now it’s mandatory. I qualify for this position. I have experience interfacing with “geeks.” My awareness and understanding increased over time from what started with a simple phone call to the IT Department (a one man office allegedly off-site). “What was the last thing you did?” and “What was on the screen before everything went black?”

“I don’t know.” “I don’t remember.”

The most fun from that conversation was my first experience with remote access. Whoa! Whoopie Goldberg and “Jumpin’ Jack Flash!”

Fast Forward.

I am now familiar with terms like “user error”  and I don’t say those words out loud anymore. The communication has changed over the years from the verbal over-the-phone to observation of his/her body language in person.

Clue #1:   an curtain of glaze over the whites of their eyes.

Clue #2:   a glance to the person behind me, if anyone, coupled with a  small step back by the right foot.

Clue #3:   a nod of the head and the anticipated “excuse me for a minute.”

My name is Trudi and thanks for your support. Keep coming back.

Moments: Ah-hah versus Uh-Oh!

I love ah-hah moments.

You know, the moments that show up after hours of cross-eyed attempts to gain a glimpse of understanding.

A recent ah-hah took place as I observed a young adult “get” the importance of an applied budget.

 

The uh-ohs are the ah-hahs that show up at three in the morning interrupting a good night of sleep.

For example, ah-hah:  the opportunity to share information during a LinkedIn class that would benefit two military attendees.

Uh-oh:  The class ended nine hours ago! No connect was attempted or made, I stayed in my comfort zone.

Lesson:  Keep awareness alert, risk liabilities, and trust that should such an opportunity presents itself again (and it will) to move toward!

What are your ah-hah versus uh-oh moments?
