Waiting until the last minute


I don’t know why I do it, it just seems to be my style. This morning I priced and packaged jewelry to send to the Red Dot Gallery in Deer Isle. They are reopening for the season on May 15. I was supposed to have my consignment pieces there a week before the opening, but here I was this morning, rushing around at the last minute to get my package to the post office before the mail went out at 11:30. I had planned to get this done over the weekend, but I didn’t.

After a busy week, I stepped away from responsibilities and took care of myself in a way I didn’t realize I needed. I slept for 10 hours on Friday night, and took a 2 hour nap on Saturday (after reading for an hour).  I did the NYT crossword puzzle on Sunday, and took time to photograph some pieces to submit for consideration for the 2011 PMC Annual. That deadline is May 15, so maybe I actually did do some jewelry related work over the weekend. Whatever I did or didn’t do, I know that tonight I finally feel like I’ve caught up with myself.

    You know that when you sleep that much you really really needed it. It’s good for you every now and again. Life can be all too much about getting things done and not enough about taking care of ourselves. It’s nice to hear you gave your self a little mini break.

      Hooray for the girls of May!! I have passed the peanut beads by so many times. Then I saw a necklace I liked a lot for the textural segment that turned out to be the peanut beads. Who knew. I Googled until I could find supplier. The matte finish really helps, I think.
