Idyllic calm. That’s what was on my mind on Sunday evening, as I thought ahead to the rest of this week. For the first time all year,
- I had no big event looming that required me to drop everything and scramble to get ready for it
- I had a pretty clean house
- I was nicely caught-up with shipments
Since then, I’ve remembered a handful of Things to Do that had slipped my mind, and that peaceful feeling has begun to slowly ebb away. I do mean slowly, though. I’m not a walking ball of stress, or anything. I’m just realizing that the ability to sail effortlessly through the week may be just out of my grasp. I’m sailing, but there’s going to have to be a small amount of effort here and there if I want to get to the other side in one piece.
I realized I haven’t been blogging since my skirt tutorial on Sunday, and I missed it. The problem was that I had nothing all that interesting to say for the past couple of days. To some extent, that is still a problem, as I am a few paragraphs in and have yet to make a useful point.
As I sit here, I realize there are things I’ve been doing that I could tell you about – how I spent Mother’s Day, how the Sheet Swap is going, the big guy’s First Communion but none of that is really inspiring me with any kind of eloquence.
Oh! How about this? I got myself a new camera! I won one on eBay this afternoon. (Saying it that way makes it sound like it was free, but of course it wasn’t. It was a pretty nice deal, though!) Neil and I share a camera, and I really wanted one of my own. It’s officially going to be my business camera, for taking product shots and possibly doing video tutorials. Unofficially, I’m also going to work on my photography a bit and take plenty of flickr pictures. Kind of like I do now 😉 So, I’m going from a Canon Powershot A610 to a Canon Powershot S3 IS, which is still a point-and-shoot, but it seems more grown up to me. I plan to stalk the mailbox until it arrives…
As for the rest of this evening? My plan is to get myself to a point where I can be ready to pack up a big pile of orders for shipment tomorrow. I’d better get to it, if I want to reach my goal before I conk out. Hopefully I’ll be back tomorrow to share something fun and creative. Clay covered pens, anyone? A few skirts for the weekend, perhaps? Time will tell…
