It’s been such a busy week…

…and it’s only Wednesday night! I’ve been packing in the activities as much as I can and still trying to keep up with making one of a kind jewelry pieces. Last Friday night I dropped off a few necklaces at Winter’s Work next to the Islesford Dock Restaurant. Sue has an amazing collection of Maine crafts in this sweet little shop. Anytime you come to Islesford you don’t want to miss it. I must check in tomorrow to see if any of these pieces sold:

On Monday I took a great little book arts workshop for 5 hours at Chapter Two Gallery in Corea, Maine. I have a whole post I want to write about that experience. It was wonderful. But the week before the workshop, gallery owners Rosemary and Garry Levin asked if I could bring in more necklaces. Here is the selection of necklaces I left with them just before sitting down to some book learning:

So far, I’ve been finding enough of a balance to avoid feeling overwhelmed by summer like I usually do. On Monday night I went to bed at 9 and didn’t wake up until 9 on Tuesday morning. I don’t do that very often, but it sure is so restorative when I do. Hmm…It could be that at age 60 I’ve finally decided that getting enough sleep needs to be a priority. I can’t run on fumes like I used to be able to do at age 40.

What do you need to make a priority to get through the summer?

  1. My summer priority? Making time to read a book outside. Preferably by myself :)


    • I am smelling what you’re cooking! Any good books to recommend? My most recent favorite was The Chaperone. by somebody Moriarity. I think you’d like it if you haven’t already read it. I’m slogging through Kate Atkinson “Life after Life.” Sometimes I like it, sometimes I don’t.


  2. First of all, every single necklace here is a them all! My priority is to try to go to bed before 1:00 am every night so I can get my required 6 hours sleep! For some reason, my internal clock is always off by an hour or two every summer..must be the heat!

    studio time and visits with friends…my priorities! also, i should get some exercise, but it’s too darn HOT!!!!
    i predict that when you pop into winter’s work you will find that last green/gray necklace GONE (i might sneak in and get it myself!!!!)…


  4. I love the first and last pieces the best–like designer bookends to all the great books on the shelf.
