Huge heirloom tomato. Corn meal with some crushed organic corn tortilla chips added for texture. Salt. Pepper. Fry. Yum.
Enjoy this day!
I feel a bit like Piglet. (Mama, do you know what I mean?) In a panic. In a rush. More to do than I can do! I have been working many hours out of town lately. It has been a real challenge. If I did not love my job so much, and all that they offer me, I think I would have “give out” by now.
In addition to work, I have been extremely busy closing the shop down. It took months and months (years) to stock it up to where it is now, so tearing it down has been a process. I have had several large and very successful sales, thanks to my sweet customers. I have moved out about 400-500 items during recent sales. Now I am boxing up, bagging up, donating, storing, all in preparation for my little private studio/workshop.
Then there’s Etsy. Ahhh, Etsy. I have been really focusing on my Etsy shop. Peeps, it’s a good and happy thing. Just busy, busy, busy!
Here is a treasure I found recently. For my garden.
The real thing. Heavy as lead. Beautiful detail. Not plastic. 7 dollars. Lucky me.
Enjoy this day.
Just dropping in with a few lines. Looking forward to live music tonight, a surprise from my sweetie! Off work. All the birdbaths are all scrubbed clean and filled. The hummingbirds have fresh food. The tomatoes from the garden are fine. I continue to work on closing down the shop and transitioning to a private studio. I think a Friday nap may be in order. Or wait…I have time to go shopping! The Steelbender is prepping for a lesson anyway.
Oh, and I am still working on family history. Pictured is one of my McNeill ancestors: Thomas McNeill born in 1849, my great-great-grandfather. His wife was Martha Jane. ❤
Enjoy this day!
My coworker and I pick on each other with that phrase: Run, Forest, Run!
My oh my, life is busy! My job has changed dramatically of late. I am very happy to always be learning new things and to continue to work for a great institution until retirement. I love clothes, so choosing outfits for work each day is a joy to me. On the other hand, it’s hard to adjust to change. Suffice it to say that “Ms. Ellie” and I are on the road a lot each week.
Meanwhile, life while off the clock is full of fun, beautiful things!
Today has been a day of just working outside and planning a few days of outings since I have some time off.
Enjoy this day! It won’t be back again!
