The housework is completed and the gardener had been consulting about the new work they did in the garden. It all sounds rather grand, but it's not fancy and it's so nice to have someone take that responsibility and give Keith and I more free time.
This guy in my tree is enjoying a brief respite in the sun....(it didn't last long)
I've finished a lot of paperwork and in organizing my schedule, I am making a conscious effort to spend more time home next year. (that has always been the plan) but it's hard to implement.
Being a traveling quilter means that I live two lives, A Mum and Wife life and a Teaching life.
A friend rang me the other day, she mentioned that she had been at a retreat recently and it was the first time she had been aware of the camaraderie of quilters that were previously unknown to her.
I value the camaraderie I experience while traveling and teaching. Its very different to life to being a Mum and Wife. Both are wonderful, and I think I balance them well. Some folk don't understand, but then again, that's not my problem.
I get to go into an environment where I know absolutely no one, and at the end of two or three days I have a bunch of wonderful new friends who have something in common.... I guess that says it all really.
I'm just about to start quilting the Buddha image.
