While it may be Labor Day today in the States, and in most cases a day of rest from labor for the masses....I am laboring away :) Which is fine, I had nowhere I had to be, and no one I have to answer to...well except for two little furry babies :)
So, I volunteered to work. I look at it this way, when the bills come due, I will be much better off in my finances than I would have been if I had lost a days pay. So, I am good with working. It's not like I am going to be busy today. The phones, on a normal weekend, are very quiet and on a holiday weekend you can almost hear crickets chirping (chirp, chirp). It is on these days I take the opportunity to catch up on a few things that I need to get done. And today, it is posting on the blog, along with catching up on my pen pal letters.
Oh, rest assurned there is much more I could be doing, without a doubt. Like cleaning house, washing laundry, and just general time spend with and cuddling the girls. But, Mondays are my normal day to work, and I just could not see missing a day of work which would result in such a short pay week, so here I am :)
It has been getting cooler here at night and in the mornings, which I hope is an indication that fall weather is just around the corner. I love the fall season. I was born in the fall (October) so I have a certain kinship with the whole feel of the season. I love the crisp, cool air, the changing of the leaves into their bright, vibrant colors, and everything just feels like Mother Nature is taking one last, cleansing deep breath before settling in for the winter. UGH!! the winter!! Now that is one season I could do without...totally!!
With the cooler weather is the reminder that the holidays are just around the corner as well. Which means I need to kick myself in gear and get some items listed in the shop. Throughout the year I am normally pretty sporadic about when I list, if I list at all. But during the holidays I do try to have a few things to offer for my shoppers gift giving needs. I have a few orders to get done, and of course I am anticipating some popcorn garland orders as well. Those are great to make, because that is something I can work on when I am chillin and relaxin watching TV and I can still spend time with the girls.
So, that is pretty much how the day is here, this Labor Day holiday 2017. The girls are finally settled down, I have taken all of two calls in an hour, and I have gotten my blog post written. Not a bad day at all in my opinion...not a bad day at all :)
