I tend to forget that this is the time of year when I just need to keep my head down and work, putting one foot in front of the other and getting through the summer in my shops. I love talking to customers, love what I do and still feel blessed to be able to make a living at what I love BUT it is summer and that brings special challenges. Challenges that include working long hours, having Jake home from school, passing Phil in the hallway and not having time to be together, taking turns working in the shop not to mention feeling like I can not get enough done. Not having enough time in the day to be everything to everyone and leaving me by the wayside. I am NOT complaining and I would not want to change a thing ( except for the economic downturn to end ) but I need a spa day, a pedicure; time to write in my journal, finish the painting on my easel and time to breathe.
I am a bit whiny tonight, perhaps a good night's sleep will cure me.
New beads for the shop in boro glass picked up from Robin at the Puget Sound Bead Festival in Tacoma last weekend.
