« Part 665: Good Days Part 666 of My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer series Part 667: Under the Weather a Little »

After a fun (and lazy) weekend, it is time for me to get back to work. We had a wonderful visit and dinner again yesterday but it is time to get back to things and get productive again. It snowed most of the day yesterday, and in Digby, there was even need for some shoveling as we saw. For the most part the roads weren’t too bad though and even though it was wet, it didn’t seem that icy. It is definitely one of the snowiest Easters that I can remember. But looking out this morning, it is back to what I would call a normal spring day. It is wet and rainy, but there isn’t a hint of snow anywhere.

There is much ahead for me, and I realize that if I don’t get to it, it won’t be long before I fall behind and then I am playing ‘catch up.’ I didn’t do much at all in the line of work yesterday except fill orders. I have a couple of orders to mail out, but the post office is still closed today. They like to do that here in Canada. It seems that there are more holidays here that carry over to Monday than there are in the states. Maybe it just seems that way.

In any case, I am actually going to keep this short today (really and truly.) I hope you all had a nice weekend and got a chance to relax too. I plan on working on the production cutting of the boots today and all is ready to go. It would be nice if I could put a dent in that pile and finish up with the second phase of that by tomorrow. I had a restless night last night and didn’t get much sleep and I don’t feel my usual energetic self today. Probably due to all the sweets I ate over the past couple of day. I hope to feel better after the second cup of coffee starts cruising through my veins. Mind over matter, I suppose.

I’ll leave you all with a fun picture that I saw in my cyber-travels. It doesn’t really relate to anything in particular, but I saw it and I thought it was funny and would be good to brighten your Monday morning.

I am glad so many of you enjoy all the silliness that I put here. I enjoy finding it and sharing it with you and seeing what you post here too. After all – all business and no play would not be as much fun. And while I really do love to work, it is good to have some distractions now and then to make me (and everyone else) smile. After all – isn’t being happy what life is all about?

Have a wonderful and happy Monday!

Good morning to you Ham! :) I could really relate to this picture. Every time we set a box down one of the three cats claims it. They just sit in it like these cats and look around. There is something about boxes and cats, I suppose . . .

Have a good one!

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a cat that didn’t like a box of any size…. They seem to try n get into it no matter how small or large…. lol

Here’s Rich in a shoebox. I finally made a sign for it for him. He loved it!

Here he found a box on the dryer. (Look at his knees!) LOL

Here he is in my painting bag. (Kind of like a box)

And finally, he is settled. We don’t have a window like that here, but it sure was his “happy place!”

Silly kitty!

Thanks, Rick. I set the orders as a priority (as always!) I need to take some time to look at the pictures. I didn’t hang around on the computer much yesterday but I will definitely check them out. I love seeing pictures of the shows and appreciate you putting them there! ;)
