To all you wonderful folks who have checked in only to see that post on Java socks still up and nothing new, I apologize. There has been a much needed flurry of work to do in my real job that has just taken all of my time and attention and left me without any fun or interesting things to post about.
To those of you who are self-employed or live off of assigned work (that you can’t control the flow of) you know the stress that comes along with slow periods. The income slows down – but the bills stay constant. And with what I do, I don’t get paid until months after all of the work has been done.
Summer and fall were slow work periods for me, which allowed me the time to do all those things I blog about, but put us in a position where, when work is here, I have to do it -which is why you have not heard from me in way too many weeks. I have had my nose to the grindstone and I have been working hard to support this big lovely family I have. Even today, I have to run up to the Appellate Division courthouse, then to a county jail, then back to the home office to prepare for 3 court appearances this afternoon. Somewhere in between I have to make the menu for Easter dinner and a grocery list because we always do a more Polish Easter – with fresh and smoked kielbasa and ham, and Gram’s wonderful Easter Bread – and this year we want to add homemade pierogies (the boys are sooooooo excited about that one).
But our first show of the season is coming up the end of April, so I have to get to work on Escape to Evermore projects for the booth, so please know we should be back on track with our craftier blogs next week. I even plan to document our attempt at homemade pierogies – which will either show you how to do it or what not to do when making them. I think the boys are going to love this one.
Thank you all for checking in.
