I keep feeling like I'm working and working and not having much to show for it, but I remind myself that keeping things in inventory is not my goal. Making and moving them out is. I do need a certain amount of inventory to, oh, stock an etsy shop or have a sale at home, but I realized that I'm accustomed to having six huge rubbermaid bins chock full of pottery- 60+ lbs each, but that's not how I'm working anymore. It isn't efficient or, frankly, the best way to generate income for my family.
Tomorrow I'm getting a new batch of the glaze that worked best for me so that I can finish one of my dinnerware orders and start a second. (hint to Melissa- THAT's where your effort has been going!)
This afternoon I'm going to pick strawberries with a friend and our children, and then we're going to make JAM! Canning season has begun (I snuck in a batch of rose petal jelly and syrup on Mother's Day) and I have a plan. Tonight will be rocking at Levitt Shell, our neighborhood free concert venue- I'm thinking about a picnic of Zapps (google it!), banh mi, and rose- or abita, as it's a new orleans band. And on Sunday, I'm working on putting those front-yard raised beds in. In the middle of the yard. Because it's my yard, dang it all, and I'm out of veggie space. Possibilities.
I hope your Friday is full of potential.
