This is day 4 of what will prove to be a 12 day marathon of work-in-town. My part time job which was never really supposed to be fewer days, just fewer hours) has added some more Friday work days, and this week not given any mid-day off. Adding to that, I am doing a business expo for my design and art business on Saturday, then do a (thankfully just) 5 day work week following. They have posted the following two weeks schedules and they are just regular 5 day weeks.
to the stress, we have had more than typically hot days and not quite
cool enough muggy nights. I suffer from summer seasonal depression, so I
have begun my St Johns Wart again, hoping to head off the major blahs.
the good news front, I am mostly caught up with hex orders... just one
3' on the bench and likely a couple of 2's will be ordered soon (custom
signs, I have been in design negotiation with the potential customers)
keeping the flow going but not drowning me.
Also for now (hear that
loud knocking on wood?) the fowl seem to be staying in their pens, both
hens and ducks. Baby ducks have gotten big enough to no longer be able
to fit through the snow fence holes. The very tall grass is almost all
down and their pens are being moved weekly or so onto new ground. The
hens don't like the demise of the tall grass, though. It made it very
hard to place their pen, but gave them cover in which they liked to lay
their eggs. Now they are back to laying in their summer shelter/tent and
I need to remember to take my cane with me to pull the eggs within
reach, or pull the tent back to reach the eggs.
