Simon is doing amazing work with the door and window frames – our bathroom is looking like a high-end spa! And when he’s not doing that, he’s chopping firewood, clearing snow and sending his book off to agents – and, trust me, that’s a lot of work.
Me? The usual: writing, submitting my book(s), baking bread, doing laundry, cleaning (domestic goddess – ugh!).
But today – more exciting work news: Simon got the job at the Nikkei Centre starting May 1 – part-time, which is exactly what he wanted. It’s also a job he is uniquely suited for and that we think he’s really going to enjoy. At the same time, we landed an editorial gig together – editing a brochure!
So that’s exciting – this is work I enjoy. Heck, it’s work we both enjoy!
I have ideas for more of the same. I shall let those ideas simmer. My guess is that we will soon have more than enough paying work coming in – books and all.
And tomorrow, we hike Enterprise Creek! No idea what to expect with either weather or terrain. I suspect we will be wise to bring everything: snowshoes, crampons, Gore-tex, winter warmth – and most certainly bear spray. Yup – let the shoulder season begin!
