“Work hard in silence, let your success be your noise” Ritu Ghatourey
And, yes, that’s exactly what I’ve done for the past few weeks. Working hard in silence. That’s pretty much how I do my work too. It ebbs and flows like an ocean wave. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy. Nope! I’ve been swamped; just not the kind of swamped I’d prefer to have.
I had plans to work on a new method of work (for me, not that it’s a “new never been done before” method just never done by me), but as life goes, that got pushed to the side. My apricot tree bloomed, so I had to quickly get to work on preserving those apricots and I think it was a bumper crop year too! I don’t even know how many pounds of apricots I picked, washed, pitted, and puree. I spent a solid week just cooking and canning jam; even when it was 100 degrees outside! I made some pretty awesome tasting jams! And I have jam and apricot butter for years…
Right behind that came Bridgeway Christian Church’s vacation bible school, which they call Camp Kidsway. It’s this incredible crazy, insanely fun and exhausting week full of worship, fun and scripture for kids and adults. It’s exhausting, but so worth it and I needed a full week’s recovery! Then Fourth of July came and went, and I’m still recuperating!
Though, I haven’t been writing or posting, instead I have been working hard in silence, doing background work. I’ve added some new features on the web. I closed my Etsy shop and am working on moving the handful of items I have left to Facebook and adding a new shop to my blog! I’ve also been working on some SEO (search engine optimization); boring stuff but it’s important none the less. And now, I feel it’s time; it’s time to dust off the sewing machine, the supplies and the fabrics. They’re calling to me. Okay, they’re screaming at me to get back to work! Before I know it, summer will be gone and I’ll be kicking myself that I didn’t squeeze that one piece in. I’ve got soap to make too! And a Turkish Spindle to learn, and photos to take! The list goes on…
Working hard in silence, let your success be your noise.
