For a while now I have had a great balance in my life and it has felt so good to know that all the corners of life's bread have been buttered. This week I accepted the offer of extra work to cover sick and annual leave.
I have enjoyed working the extra, but have been amazed at the tilt in balance. Clothes, sheets and towels are being washed, thanks to my hubby, but there is a pile up in washing baskets waiting to be ironed. Shopping needs to be done late at night, animals need cleaning up after and this must wait till I get to it. My son talks ten to the dozen when I get home, catching up on lost time. My studio gathers dust!
I will have a healthy pay packet which will pay for some framing of artworks, so I am really happy with this. Still, the balance thing is important to me. This week has been a reminder of this.

Some glimpses of paintings I've been playing with..... letting my imagination go wild...
Work has been busy, since it's mid-year sale time in the store. So I will return to the studio again once I get back to my normal hours.
Tonight we are going to watch my son perform a guitar piece at a local music-restaurant venue. Lots of excitement here!
Not much else to report, life has been chugging along nicely here at the villa. A little cold in the mornings and evenings with pale sunshine during the day. Taking my vitamins and keeping warm...
