I love the Weekends

Its been a nice rainy spring weekend. Actually pretty cold and windy, but we see that so rarely in sunny Arizona that I love it!  I spent this weekend visiting friends and family and doing a little shopping. I really needed it. I am going through training at work and its been very stressful for me. The small dept. I worked in was sent back to the corporate offices back in MN. So our small group is training for a new dept. It will be ongoing for almost 4 months. I had just gone through training for that position last summer and was finally getting comfortable in my job. I have to admit at 52 I like change less and less. However the world is more and more fast paced and you need to be open to change. This causes stress to me. Then I stress about not getting the time I need to be creating and getting things listed on my website, etsy site and my space at Tillies Attic. When this training is over I go right into having major surgery and a 4-6 week recovery. I figured out  I better get my priorities in order. Of course I need and am very thankful for my job. My health has to be top priority for me too. I am just not going to be worried about all of the extras. Spending time enjoying life on my days off is my new way of de-stressing!  Not sure how much I will be creating in the near future, but I will enjoy it when I do.
I made a trip over to Tillies Attic and just had to share some new photos of the shop. It looks prettier every time I go in.  There is a new "tea room" decor area and its full of sweet items. If ya live in the Phoenix area, stop by sometime and visit Tillies. Its in Mesa on the Southeast corner of Dobson and Guadalupe and they are opened 9:30 to 5:00 Tuesday through Satuday. :)

I hope you all have a pretty week.

You HAVE to take care of yourself ! I'm glad you are learning to relax.
Hopefully you will be back designing and creating soon.
