Whew. I really need a mini vacation! I feel like I’ve been running in circles for over a year. Even our fam ily vacation last fall turned into stressville with the vandalism to our house! So yesterday I decided to just take a day off. Thankfully I’m caught up on all my wedding photography editing, and album design, so it was easy to take the time off.
The crazy thing about working from home and being your own boss, is you end up working ALL the time! I find myself at 10pm working on website Search Engine Optimizing (SEO). Only in the last year or so have I stopped taking phone calls or checking email after 7 pm. It’s too hard to sleep when my mind is busy working. : )
So yesterday I packed a bag with a book, my journal, a snack and a bottle of water. I put the bike in the car and took off. No where special, just out. I biked around some neighborhoods that I’ve never seen before. Then found a quiet spot to just relax. It felt SOOOOO good! Wow. I really need to do this more often.
I only took my camera with because this week’s assignement in my showit photo club was “Self Portrait” – otherwise I probably would have left the camera home too. ; )
Ahhh summer. The crazy photography season and yet the time when we want to take days off. It’s all about balance isn’t it?!
