I'm still doing my job -- in fact, I just sent out a boatload of appraisals today. More are on the schedule next week.
Some restoration work for a few clients...a collection committee meeting for the local museum...
And then a trip to Granby to lecture and do some more appraising. That part of my life is very busy right now. I take this job --and my reputation -- seriously. I work hard at it.
Some writing is waiting -- but also a few days of blessed time to sew. Whatever I want, for hours if I want. Some curtains first, I think...yards of sheer silk overlaid with tasseled circles have been waiting. I can see them blowing gently in the breeze, the tassels swaying in the sunshine.
The time's coming...I just have to hang in there a bit longer.
The Brick gave his notice at work. He has two more weeks before his new life begins. He came home from work today, and plopped down, a big smile on his face. "You have no idea how wonderful it is," he said, "to have a boss who no longer can touch you."
Life goes on, doesn't it...and it is very much worth persevering for.
