Since I have retired I have tried to find some sort of routine to the working week but have found it difficult. I seem to flit from one project to another and I think I need to set myself some sort of timetable to help me complete some of the projects I have on the go.
Today for example I had decided I wasn’t going to do any work (I wrote this post on Sunday) as my declutter calendar task was to practise having a Sabbath with no work. I didn’t get very far! I went for my morning walk and after having breakfast the first thing I did was to bring in some washing off the line. I then went to the studio and decided I needed to paint the chook I have been making. I only got the stand painted as I have to wait for it to dry to give it a second coat. While I was waiting for that to happen I thought I ought to start work on some framing I was going to do for my daughter. This item to be framed has been with me for almost a year and I have put off framing it with the excuse that I was doing other things. My dear daughter has reassured me that there was no hurry. Well, I certainly haven’t hurried.
I started work on the framing and succeeded in finishing cutting out the matboard. I then went on the internet to order moulding for the frame. The place I normally get my moulding didn’t have any of the type I wanted so now I will need to work out what I am going to do, probably wait till my next trip to Canberra and buy some moulding there. Our closest town doesn’t have a shop that sells picture framing supplies.
While I was on the computer I decided I should prepare a blog post for Monday, that was my next task, but I enjoy doing that. I will go and sit down after this. It will probably be about two o’clock by then. I might have a non-working afternoon!
Because I am no longer a working woman my week should go something like the one portrayed in this Golden Book of old!
Don’t get me started on perceived gender roles.
