I spent some looooong hours at the office, labouring! How appropriate is that? Saturday was chores. Most of Sunday and a big chunk of Monday was work work: had to get the docs done for a deadline, not my choice.
Some stuff really requires the concentration that's only possible when there are no phone calls or appointments.
However gotta say -- it is really interesting work and definitely feels worthwhile. Just have to hope that all the prep generates some of the result we're looking for.
And: when things get a bit more relaxed, believe me I'll have no hesitation about taking some mid-week time off. September and October are two of my favourite months of the year and I'll want to get outside as much as possible.
We did manage to carve out time to take Charlie for a reasonably good hike mid-afternoon today. Goldenrod, some white and pale mauve wild asters, and I saw my first woolly bear caterpillar of the fall! He was just hurtling himself across the road, must have had sneakers on all of those little feet!!
Salads made, some darker transitional cottons pressed . . . I'm glad to have those time-sensitive work obligations under control so I'm not panicking, just feeling all ready for the regular week ahead.
