staycation. Bonnie was out on holiday all last week and I had to be front and center to open the studio which meant having to work on the website until the wee hours of the morning. I apologize to the people who showed up at opening time to find the shop in darkness. I was late every single day! I move like a turtle in the morning and then once the first cup of coffee infiltrates the bloodstream I gear up to a sloth. It doesn't get much better than that. I’m not a morning person, possibly due to the fact that the cat in me stays up far too late in the evenings. I’m too old to change now and probably wouldn’t if I could. I have become accustomed to my luxuriously lazy schedule.
I crawl out of bed sometime after eight. I have four dogs to feed and stand around waiting as they all find their spot in the yard bank to make their daily deposit. I feed them a homemade diet so there is breakfast prep, time to sit with my coffee, a quick grooming, time to sit with
my coffee, same coffee, just cold now, my breakfast, more coffee and the shower. That’s about three to five hours’ worth of effort and then sometimes a wee nap to regenerate. I’d have to get up at 5:00 – 6:00 am to make it to work by 10:00 am. How did I ever manage a nine to five job? Who was that person and where did she go? Truthfully, there were countless times I napped in the employee washroom, head on the toilet tank because I didn't get my eight hours of sleep.
So what's the greatest perk of owning my own business you ask? Second to the fun it's the flexibilty of it all. Taking time to smell the roses. But...if you want high octane performance, check with me around midnight when my jets are fueled and I’m rearing to go, the creative juices are flowing and I’m superwoman once again.
