The weekend, briefly

The weekend was full of little bits of color

fabric swatches

a determined balcony garden (hanging on from last year - original post here)

  7. grace-dieu is the perfect crate-phrase for a determined garden, isn't it? mine needs similar divine favor; our lavender is on its last legs, i fear. hello, pretty circe! i hope you had good lump-news!

  9. @ lauren - i think i killed my lavender. it feels awfully dry. i tried chopping it all down to a stump and i'm just crossing my fingers that it will revive on it's own. i do not have a green thumb.

    and circe is lumpy but cheerful! the doc put her on some antibiotics which seem to have made a huge difference because she's definitely feeling more like herself.

  21. You seem to accomplish a lot during the weekends (congrats!) -- Do you ever have to bring work home and have it take up some of your personal time?

  22. @ Ms. Jennifer - I would LOVE to say that I never work on the weekends. In one sense, it's true - I rarely bring home work-work on the weekends because I work in a lab and that doesn't come home with you. But I do have to squeeze in at least 10 hours of work for the shop each weekend, in order to keep up. I try to combine it with something fun, like catching up on TV series with D or listening to the radio. But it is still work.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ah, great point about the shop! Even creative/fun work is "work".

    This further confirms my belief that you're truly a master of time management. If you ever write a post on prioritization (kind of like the DIY wedding/100 Layer Cake post) it could become my 'new rules to live by'!

    Thanks for the reply!
