It's seems that I'm a weekly burst blogger now - one week on and one week off. I can live with that. There should be a few more posts this week - a yummy recipe or two and the final reveal of my Heart to Heart Swap Valentine. Until then, here's what's been keeping me away the last week...
-loving my birthday present. It was my first international purchase through Etsy and I am thoroughly pleased.
- after a small break, starting again with occupational therapy for Peter. This time, he's working with a couple of enthusiastic students at the local university advised by Peter's regular OT.
-excited for my new calling at church to work with the 16 and 17 year old girls and excited that I still get to keep playing the organ too.
-working on gathering props for our community play. I was a little overwhelmed at first, but I'm feeling a little better about it now. I've never done anything like this before, but sometimes when you live in a small town and you know people in charge of things, you get asked to do things you've never done before. We're doing You Can't Take It With You. If you have Netflix, you can watch the movie version online - it's a fun show.
-trying to keep up with my shop. Custom and regular orders have kept me pretty busy since I reopened after my Christmas break. I think I'm down to 15 items in the store which is lower than it's been in a long time. I want to get some new banners in the shop, but every time I think I'm about caught up with custom orders, I get another one. It's nice that things are steady - this is sort of how I've always wanted the shop to be - busy enough to be profitable and fun, but not so busy that I felt overwhelmed or that it cut too much into the rest of life.
