I must admit, other than the day to day stuff, I have been not very busy. Not very motivated either. Must be the heat. I wonder how I can allow myself to stay un-busy. I enjoy the peacefulness, but in my head, I am shouting, 'get busy!' The loess is everywhere, but I don't dust it away, the bathrooms need a sparkle, but I turn my head and look the other way. The studio is a mess, but I say, 'tomorrow, I'll tackle it.' When it's something for me, I am lazy, when it's for someone else, I am on top of it.
Soon I will be traveling back to Seattle to work, flowers for my client, flowers for my friend's wedding reception. I have no choice in the matter, I get to get busy. And in that setting I thrive. I love the planning, the trouble shooting, the minute by minute itinerary.
I do get to have a bit of fun, too. For 3 days at the end of the 16 days, I will do something for me. I hope I can stay motivated, as I will be making art. Building something wonderful, with a fantastic artist as my instructor. And then, to wrap it all up, Fall Feast, a wonderful day of friendship and eating and drinking at a beautiful cabin in the mountains. It will be a blissfully happy day, the perfect ending to my busy days (it would be best if Larry and Maddy could be with me...).
I'll post pictures after the busy.
