I was a working, accomplishing goddess today. Not crochet related, but I totally kicked ass. Maybe it’s because it’s the first day of spring break and my day wasn’t broken up by school runs, I don’t know, but I’m ready for more days like today. I had my running check list. Back and forth, trading this hat for the next. Ticking my items off one by one. I took every call today on the second ring! Many times I just can’t, but today I talked to customers and friends and still accomplished things on my list! Even as things got added to my list, they got worked on! I even mowed on the lawn, with an old-fashioned push mower today (the human-powered kind that used to belong to hubby’s grandma). In high weeds. (Long drought plus a sudden few days of rain in Central Texas means every mean and nasty local weed there is springs up and tries to take over.) And I still came in and was able to turn my head to analysis, inventory and calculations. Take care of the workshop I’m planning, contact people, handle clients, send out newsletters, convert files, touch base with teachers and chat with friends.
On top of that, I heard from three other friends who fell into recent strokes of good fortune too! Friends sold their house in 6 hrs (say what? I want some of that!). Another friend sold $400 in paintings over lunch today. She’s so excited! (Isn’t that awesome?) And another is launching a new business plan with astounding possibilities. Another I talked to I just found out escaped a fire. Thank goodness they are OK! And I have new neighbors who at least for today, seem really nice.
My regular lawn mower is still broken, and I didn’t finish the lawn, but it was a good day. And I feel like awesome. It totally rocked!
Now I want to bake chocolate chip cookies…………
I totally deserve it.
