Today was one of those days when I worked very busily at avoidance. :P I have a task to do at my store that I really do not want to do ... and it is amazing how many urgent tasks I can find to do to avoid what I don't want to do. LOL
One thing that I _am_ enjoying doing is designing a small quilt to make pattern/kit for displaying pins - you know, those pretty enamel pins you can buy of quilt blocks or special events like shows or guilds. :) I'm pretty happy with my design - and, if you are interested in meta-cognitive things like I am, it was also curious to watch as the design ideas morphed all afternoon.
We had a reporter from the Catonsville paper come and interview Robbyn and I this afternoon ... will be fun to see what she writes about us. :)
As I was driving home this evening around 6:30 pm (yes, I did work late), the sky was lovely - very Maxfield Parrish, like the picture above by him. All soft pinks and blues and lavenders. :) The temperature was around 75 and the breeze was lovely. :)
The yard crew came today and went to work on our shrubs and trees - they pruned and hauled and pruned some more. Tomorrow I hope to go out and walk around the yards and see how they did - hope my instructions were sensible 'cause it sure cost me enough money. :)
The new sales associate I hired a couple of weeks ago, Katie, and I are going to experiment with making a Halloween costume for my American Girl doll (Molly) to display in the front window. I've been meaning to make fun clothes for Molly for a while ... and even bought a couple of books with patterns. Now I get to play. :)
