« Part 16: With Much Appreciation Part 17 of My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond series Part 18: The Road Trip Did Wonders! I Can't Wait to Get Moving! »

“Too much of even a good thing isn’t good.” Sometimes even if we love what we do, we need a change of pace to keep things exciting and fresh. My scientific mind decided to test that theory and I will certainly let you all know the results. I haven’t been accomplishing what I want lately and I think it is time to take a step back and do something completely unrelated to woodworking and computers today. (Already I am cheating, writing this!)

The sun is shining, the car is clean, the camera battery is charged (It’s 106 miles to Chicago, we’ve got a full tank of gas and a half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark and we’re wearing sunglasses. JK!) Seriously, it s a beautiful day and I think I need a break at least for a day or two so I can feel fresh and productive again. Now I can’t promise that I won’t look at tools or even buy tools, but hey – I a girl’s gotta have some fun!

Have a great Saturday! And happy Father’s Day tomorrow to all you dad’s!

Good idea, get out. Relax. Maybe get some inspiration?
