More Than Enough

That is, I have more than enough to keep me busy...

Within the last 2 weeks I have moved 544 miles, found a new apartment, and started a new job. 

I packed up my car on May 30th with what I thought were enough necessities, pots, pans, plates, enough clothes for a week of work, TV, and beads, lots of beads.  The rest of my household is in storage 544 miles away.

You know about plans, they never quite work out.  I moved my trunkful of goodies into my new apartment on June 5th and started my new job on June 6th.  A week of new work left no time for breaking out those beads, but enough time to load them into the bookcases next to the fireplace in my new apartment.  That was progress.

When the weekend rolled around it was time to shop for a chair.  I hit 5 consignment stores and 3 thrift stores and just couldn't make up my mind. 

Sunday was reserved for grocery shopping, big box store shopping, cooking, laundry, cleaning...

All of which is to say I had more than enough to keep me too busy to play with my beads.  Oh, and I forgot to mention that I have over 300 posts in my RSS feed. 

I promised inspiring links.  Many of you are familiar with the work of Maggie Meister, if you have never seen her work, now is the time to visit, if you haven't visited recently now is the time for inspiration.  Here is a link to her gallery: Maggie Meister Gallery

  1. Wow KJ! Congratulations on the new job! Sounds like you've really had your hands full. Just do one thing at a time and break out the beads in between. The other stuff is not going anywhere!


Thank you for sharing. I had to turn off anonymous comments because spam was being posted.
