For the past 2 weeks, i have been so busy that blogging became almost a chore rather than a pleasant moment. I have this part time job , working from 5am to 8pm 5 days a week. Getting up that early is not always easy, ( i get up at 3:30am ) but i have been doing that for almost 7 years now. What i like about this job, is that i get home early and still have all day to create, garden, do house chores, ect.
My husband and i own a sailboat. And we met this guy who owns a sail shop. He makes sails and repairs old ones. He is an artisan, being the only one in Quebec doing his sails the way he does. His studio is small but cute, overlooking a small lake where small sailboats abound. Thing is, working all alone, he was overloaded with work and needed a helper. I was not really keen on the idea, but he was so desperate and said he needed me for 2 or 3 weeks. So i agreed to help him. I thought i would hate the job, but i find it interesting and somewhat enjoyable. He offered me to be his year round "helper ". The pay is good, i would work 2 days a week and i could quit the other job. That means no more getting up at 3:30am ! I hesitated, but then i thought it was an offer i could not refuse. All that blabbering to tell you that i did not quit the other job. I still have to get up at 3 and work the 2 jobs. It is very long and exhausting hours. I know this was only temporary, but i am neglecting my shop, my family ( i have been cooking them terrible meals for 2weeks ) and my gardening. When i got home this morning, i was so tired that i almost fell asleep when i was driving. I decided to take a day off. I called my friend to tell him i was sorry, but i had to stay home. He is very comprehensive and told me to take it easy.
So here i am, taking a moment for my friend bloggers . I missed you ! :)
I still have a hectic schedule today though, having to pack for our sailing weekend, clean up the house, do some sewing, hoping i can list a few things in my shop today and cook a GOOD meal for poor neglected unhappy hubby. Whew !
I will try and be back next week. Until then, i wish you all a happy warm and sunny weekend !
♥ love you all ♥
