Morning Meanderings… A New Normal
Good Morning and happy Tuesday!
Another beautiful day is appearing here in Central Minnesota. I love sitting at my table and looking out the window while I write in the mornings, catch up on emails, and prep for my day.
This week kicks off new rhythms to my day and I am working on setting new habits and treating my now “stay at home” job, as a “get up, get ready, and go” job. In other words – I have a set time to get to work which is now in a downstairs office, and takes me about 30 seconds to get to. I know as time goes on I will probably loosen the reigns as I figure out what works best for me and still allowing me to put in the time I need to so the deadlines are met; but for now.. this is the training period and I enjoy the discipline of the consistency.
Yesterday, Justin was in town, that College boy who is now my Graduated boy. We had lunch together, caught up and then came back to the house where he helped me set up the desk in my office. I bought a desk last fall from a friend and have left it set in pieces for the last 8 months. The pieces were too large to put together on my own and Al and I never committed to putting it together. It was in the spare room and out of sight… out of mind.
Here are pics of what it looked like put together:
There is the basic shell of the office. I need some pictures on the wall and some personal effects, but it is enough of an office to get me excited about going out and buying pretty pens, yellow note pads and files for the filing cabinet. (It doesn’t take much to make me happy! :D )
Reading and even listening to audio have taken a back burner lately but I listened to audio last night as I set up the office and I have it on this morning so hopefully I am around the corner on that dry spell.
Hope your Tuesday is wonderful! Any new adventures out there you are starting? Any advice from those of you who write at home or have jobs that allow you to work from home?
