I didn't post yesterday because I got a good deal of drawing done. I am on a drawing binge and actually working on several new scroll saw designs at once. It seems that I get like that – work in a flurry and then move on to something else – but I hate to stop the process when I am on a roll. Not even to take the time to cut things out. I will probably be doing that over the weekend and then have the projects ready for next week. I think it will be fun.
Here is a sample of what I am working on. . .
Fretwork is cool. I can't wait to get to the saw.
Other than that I have been doing some things around the house. There is lots to do, although everything isn't 'blog-worthy'. Like everyone else, the daily chores of cooking, cleaning and laundry take time and sometimes fill the days more than we anticipate.
I recevied more photos of my car. Actually I get them each morning showing the previous days' progress. I have been posting them every day on my Facebook page and everyone seems to enjoy seeing the progress. They are coming along just fine with it and I am glad to see how thorough they are being with everything:
I guess they call this the "ugly stage". It will be nice when things are put back together again. I hope to get it back sometime next week. With the warmer weather and the summer in full swing, I would love to be able to get to the beach.
Today we are taking the day off and heading to Sable Island. I have lived here in Nova Scotia for eleven years now and have never been. I am taking my camera, so I hope I have some photos to show you tomorrow. Then back to work.
The sun is shining and there isn't a cloud in the sky. It is a beautiful day to escape. While being self-employed is like having two full time jobs most days, the days like this are what I think is the reward. Sometimes it is nice to just look outside, see the beautiful day, and decide to drop everything and go. It makes it all worth it.
I wish you all a wonderful day today. I hope you find time to do something that feeds your soul. Happy Thursday to you all!
