In some ways, things feel almost normal. In other ways, not so much.
For example. Here is the view into my workshop:
Virtual School. Arthur on the left ---He's in 4th Grade now. Georgia on the right. She's now in 2nd. Both kids attend a Spanish Immersion School. So that's been interesting to maintain that skill during all of this...
In the background, that's half of my workshop :)
I have some pretty awesome little coworkers. The first few days were rocky. But it's much improved now. Overall, it's a much better experience from last Spring's E-Learning. And while I usually try to focus on work in these updates, you're now going to get a lot more family tidbits. Because. Thanks for understanding :)
Now that we're getting into a groove of the routine, I feel like I'm a bit more productive with my work now (at times). I haven't been taking pictures of the crowns sets I've been shipping these last few weeks, but I will say, that has all felt somewhat normal now, too.
There is a surprising steady flow of orders at the moment. I'm grateful. I'm also inspired. Throughout the summer, I had been trying to brainstorm some ways that I could diversify. I have thought of some really fun things I want to make. Some are quick, cheap, easy, cute. Others are works of art that I cannot wait to see come to fruition. I've not yet had the time (kids) to make good on any of the the ideas. But I feel optimistic that with this routine of School that we've got going now, that I will get the time.
I just got all of my MUST-SO work done. Shipments are ready for my mailman. The kids just started their afternoon Zoom meetings. I'm going to play. But I do also need to get ready for my Church School Meeting with my teachers this weekend (I'm Sunday School Director for St George-Indy). And I have a PTA meeting (Treasurer) for the kids' school tonight (Zoom).
Here. Look at one of my kitties. That makes everything better. This is Reno. Yesterday. Sunbeam by the front door.
