I am not bound for any public place, but for ground of my own where I have planted vines and orchard trees, and in the heat of the day climbed up into the healing shadow of the woods. Better than any argument is to rise at dawn and pick dew-wet red berries in a cup. ~Wendell Berry

Ahead of the Game
Every evening after the chores are done and the kitchen is
cleared and the dogs are settled with their bones, I work at my second
job. Amazing progress can be made by
dedicating a few hours each day to the business. It feels great to be on top of things. Inventory is growing and I am getting much
more organized. I am stocked up on
supplies and labels and have had some time to start on a new product.
I cherish these cold winter days when I am not called
outdoors on weekends and I can get in some good computer time, at the house in town, when the girls have to be in town to cheer at games and tournaments.I have worked out some of the glitches on the
website and added a shopping cart.This
was no easy feat – let me tell you.The
hours I spent working on this really helped me get to know the ins and outs of
my website software and now there is lots more I can do to improve the
site. All I need is time.
Then – I did something else I have been wanting to do – I made
a blog button.
I also set up an etsy store – but it is lost out there
somewhere.I will have to start
over.Multiple user accounts in etsy can
be a problem.
My goal is to stay ahead of the game.Nothing more stressful to me than having a business
and hoping I don’t get any orders – because I just don’t have time for it.More importantly is that I really do like
making and selling the products.And as
long as that is the case, I don’t mind taking the time for it.
I hope to find a balance soon - my yoga mat is calling to me and that would be just balance I need. I
think I will take tonight off and heed its call.
