thankful

Home Office

There has been many a time this past week that I have sat on the sofa and taken a wee moment to be thankful that my office is so close.  I work at the kitchen table, on the rug, on the sofa, in my organic farming course....tihihii.  My home office is not only in close proximity, is is very mobile.

I have no real office hours, but that means finding self-discipline.  By this I mean the self-discipline to stop at a decent hour in the evening.  Often I work until at least 10 pm.  But I do not start at the crack of dawn, for sure! But my work day includes illustrating, communication with clients, a visit to the art supply store, research about possible retailers, and when necessary (or when I remember) making lunch. And drinking coffee, the day must have coffee.

I have updated hardware and software recently so that I can continue the task flow. Some things are essential to order online, but others require an excursion out into the neighborhood.  I recently visited an art supply store and was acutely aware of how limited time is in the face of all the wonderful mediums of art that would be fun to try out! I managed to buy only what I needed, but barely. :)
