You read that right... I am actually not in Florida, aka on vacation. :) It's always a major ordeal to shut down operations for a week, Sometimes I take work with me, which is another kind of ordeal. ;-) This week, however, I'm enjoying a (mostly) non-working trip. I do have my laptop and I am doing some design and other computer work, but that's it.
It's beautiful here. Living in Florida after so many years in New York has required many adjustments and one major one has been the near-total lack of seasonal changes. Autumn has always been my favorite time of the year and it's in full swing here. It's been a very low key visit so far, playing (and snuggling) with my friend Sarah's three kids and puppy, and baking tasty treats. :)
So my biggest projects lately have been year text items (love next year's text) and items for the upcoming international conventions. I so wanted to apply for one, but after quite a bit of thought and prayer, I decided it wasn't a practical choice right now- both for financial reasons and health reasons- honestly, I never know how I'll be feeling and that makes it difficult to plan things way in advance, and because of that fact it gets very stressful and I end up sabotaging myself. :-P What a pain, but we all have these things to deal with these days, right? How wonderful it is to know that whatever we miss in this system, we are going to get a million times over in the new one.
I'll try to post some pictures later. I'm terrible about writing and I really do want to do more, so I thought while I was sitting here and have a moment I would just do it. :) Have a great day, friends!
