The weather here over the past few days has been atrociously cold and I am happily wallowing in the fact that I don't really need to leave the house. Today I've been cutting paper and creating notebook covers, building up our stock to list online and send to a store in Regina (yay! Another actual brick and mortar shop wants to sell our stuff!). Working at home isn't always easy (especially since I have the attention span of a gnat) as I try to balance motherhood, making stuff, keeping the house in a liveable state and attempting to keep us all fed. But I love it more than I even thought possible. I glory in my routine of getting up early to work a bit before the house awakes, getting to exercise during the day, being able to start a loaf of bread baking in between emailing contacts, packaging orders, and binding another notebook. I think it's great that my evening "prep" time now consists of sitting on the couch watching episodes of Battlestar Gallactica while embroidering pillows and drawing new designs for notebooks. I love deciding for myself what I'll tackle today and what I'll leave for another winter Wednesday. Me, an entrepreneur...Who would have guessed that would happen?
