Taking It Easy

My mom is visiting/helping me out this week. You are just never too old to need your mom! I've been working on a new schedule that includes me only working from 8-3pm. I can't even tell you how hard this is, but necessary. I was working from 7am until 11pm everyday with just a few breaks for dinner and hardly any time for anything else. Isn't that just a recipe for disaster!

Artists - you can NOT work every waking moment! Enjoy life and lift your head up from the work desk every now and then.

A few things from this week's beadmaking sessions.

Well not really new - just new takes on older designs.

Good luck with the new work schedule...I need to do that--my day starts at 4:30am (start work a 6) then continues until usually 10 at night (sometimes later when I sleep in a bit on the weekends). If I don't stay on schedule and go off and do something else, it usually takes me 2 weeks to get caught up!

Have a great and productive day! :-)

I am my happiest both personally and professionally when I worked 6:00-3:00. It is not always easy to do! I hope you see an improvement in your quality of life quickly!

Ah yes. Scheduling time for the necessary and sane moments of life. I am working on that too.

Say hello to mom. Give her a big hug from me. And one to you too.

Enjoy the day!

Those birds are ridiculously beautiful! And I totally agree on the Mum thing.

Hi, Heather and Hello Beverly! Hope you are enjoying the visit. Three generations of my family will be together in Texas this weekend - if you see a glow from North Texas you'll know why! My daughter and grandbaby are visiting the great-grandparents. Woo Hoo! And yes, keep reminding us to HAVE a LIFE and not just work with heads down all the time. It's a good reminder!
