Spent the morning working at sunrise, doing a portrait session at Spring Point, near SMCC, in South Portland. I should have stopped at 158 for a bagel. But I had bought breakfast last night (a Clif bar) for $.99 and am being consciously frugal this week. Saving for a house is expensive. Watching the sun rise on a peninsula is the best. I wish ‘work’ could be like this more often. I put those quotation marks there because meeting new people, using my eyes and making pretty pictures doesn’t feel at all like work.
What does feel like work? Today, I will be fastening little bits of cardboard to about 600 bottle caps so that I can make a shipment early next week. Once I’ve sealed all the bottle caps then I will hunch over a table for an hour filling the bottle caps with epoxy. But it’s alright, because I can do it in my pajamas! It’s going to be beautiful out — I hope to carve out at least four hours for outside time.
Happy long weekend, even if Monday is the weirdest. holiday. ever.
