Sunday + work

We highed ourselves to church this morning (20 degrees above normal out), where Mother J's homily was especially good and pertinent, hymns all singable AND familiar, and fellow parishoners in a good mood. L sat with other girls and focused on "Ben Franklin," somone new with long, flowing grey locks, petty wife, and several children.

So it was with heavy heart that I returned to the office and my desk, laden with the dread accounting text and other such tomes, requiring me to get down to business. Here is where I spend a considerable amount of time:



Wish it were, I don't know, more CREATIVE! Which is what I overheard a college-age student say on the subway quite a while back: "I don't care what I do, as long as it's creative." Sigh.

Have a good Sunday and a creative week.

It's hard to focus on creativity when you have to pay bills, cook meals, clean the house-unless you're Picasso or the like with a wife or mistress to do it all for you. The new shop looks really great.

I think every woman should have a place for creativity and...if possible, a room with a view!!!!

Fiber arts... that is an outlet, yes? and blogging?

Love the pic of your desk. I would think that making it organized would make it then easier to approach?

I tend to let my stuff on my desk pile up. It then becomes a dread and I go blog instead of doing what "I should".

I know what you mean. Sometimes you have to make the creative side an avocation instead of a vocation.

I don't like doing the accounts either but once they're done we can get on with more interesting stuff.

There never seems to be enough space when we're trying to be creative, does there? I am just waiting for the day when I have an entire room of my own for an office/creative space, instead of a little corner filled with way too much stuff!

You can be creative with your accounts! trouble is it tends to land you in court.
