Balancing Act

Thank you JM for suggesting today's QS/SK releases, I adore them:

I have been trying to find balance in my recent days and by balance I mean trying to juggle all the balls that are the hats that I wear.  My day started with playing with my new Keurig Coffee Machine and tried the Earl Grey Tea which was yummy and then followed it with a coffee by the name of Black Noir.  I normally only have one cup of coffee or tea in the morning and let's just say that after two cups of caffeine the juggling became alot harder ;-)

We have hired my Daughter In Law, Heather to work full time for the company and she will be responsible for first getting all the floss usages on the site and then on to about 2 years worth of work that I have just not had time to do such as adding finish images to the charts, contract updates, answering the phone (that rings all day and we miss so many phone calls) and eventually emails for the Wholesale side of things.  We hope that she likes the work and that everything goes smoothly.

I have been trying to find more time to meditate now that my Son and Heather are back together and the time needed for babysitting the G'kids is reduced.  I just can't seem to find the time and I also tend to avoid it as my space is not as comfortable as I like even after purchasing a Zafu set.  What I would really like is this but way beyond what I could ever afford, someday maybe.....

Here's to finding balance in all of our lives and even if it is for a moment it is better than none.


  1. the meditation chair really is beautiful! I wonder if you could use it for stitching too? lol :-)

  2. I'm glad you hired Heather to help, Michele! You have already finished quite a few. It's wonderful having the floss usage on the site. Thanks!

  3. From the read of this, it sounds like balance is coming back in your world and the stress is decreasing. This is a nice start to the new year Michele! (((hugs)))

  4. Oh Michele, I hate you've had such family turmoil going on. It just drains your spirit and pulls you apart. The line is too fine to walk to keep everyone happy, so in the end no one is happy-especially you. Tough decisions have to be made and boundries set or set again and of course the issues are so much more complicated when young children are involved. Also very difficult, complicated and so stressfull dealing with grown children, can't tell them anything. They seem to know it all yet here they are with wheels spinning in place and wondering what and how this happened!
    I sincerely hope you're seeing light at the end of the tunnel and brighter days are just ahead for you, Bob and children. May each breath you take allow your spirit to expand and soar.
