I'm finding I'm spending more time in my zentangle sketch book of late. It relaxes my mind when I'm feeling cranky or stressed. Which I've felt both lately.
Alaska has been beautiful - sunny, blue skies with white fluffy clouds. It's one of those really good summers and I feel like I haven't taken the time to enjoy it. I must start bike riding to and from work so that I'm outdoors in the sun a little each day. Note to self: Get butt out of bed early tomorrow so you can bike ride.
My payroll clerk had an emergency surgery last Saturday which resulted in me having to go to work on Monday, July 4th, and work for 7.5 hours on a beautiful sunny day that I had plans to enjoy. So that bummed me out a little. And then the news that she won't be back to work for 2 weeks which leaves me feeling a little stressed because I have to do both our jobs now until she returns.
Next week is VBS (vacation bible school for those of you non-church people). I will be working at the church this coming Saturday to decorate and turn our building into an old Gold Mining town. Then starting Sunday I'll be teaching an evening class with my sister for 2.5 hours each evening through Thursday.
It will be a busy week, but when it's done, I'm FREE of obligations for awhile!!
