Vacations over. Back to reality. Beautiful weather for starting fall cleanups though. Which means it's also beautiful riding weather dang it.
You'll have to change jobs if you don't want a "good riding weather" conflict with "good working weather"!

Morning comes early and a long day of work coming with it.
Especially when you post at 2 AM! :ep

Yeah, unless I can get some "sponsors" 😄.
This time of year when the weather is fine you can hear the riding clock tick tocking away. It's almost a desperation! My friend/neighbor/riding buddy talked me into ditching Friday for a good long ride in a new place.
Guess I'll be working in the rain eventually, haha.

If you have that option you DO have the ability to ride without quitting your job :D
Oh it's definitely an option. I used to do it all the time when I had 18 accounts. It was a necessity back then. Now that I have far fewer accounts I am more picky about the weather conditions, but if you play you pay right?

Yep. Part of the odd sleep patterns I tried to tell Bay about! But went to bed and slept well until alarm at 6. Chores and at work in a store at 9....to second store and home about 5:30. Logged in 14 hr of job assignments, which were completed in less time but I get all projected hrs they set per job. Took me 8 hrs plus travel, which pays hrly rate and mileage amounts. I'm pretty fast for an old gal! :lol: plus OT for over 10...it was a good day!

Chores tonight. Packaged eggs for DD to take to customers at work tomorrow. Ate, catching up with everyone and will get to bed about 10:30. Will sleep well tonight!!! Back up about 6 for similar day tomorrow. Fri is about half a day then off for weekend. Mon & Tue work, then off until following Mon. :rolleyes: unless someone else can't get jobs completed and I agree to sub. Not likely I will --- I have these porch posts & railings to paint! It will give me a break. Our work is sporadic and somewhat seasonal. Usually very slow Nov to Feb. Used to be very busy in winter with food demos -- CV19 has stopped that. :(

May get back into gear with sewing this winter. Used to make a lot of clothes, household items, animal blankets, stuffed toys, needlepoint, quilting -- you name! I have boxes of fabrics. It's a pattern with sewers. You buy just because you like the fabric...thinking you will sew it up. :hide

I used to do a lot of sewing. I even had an upholstery business. At one time I had 2 commercial machines and 4 home sewing machines. I still have 1 commercial machine and a couple of home machines-old ones. I enjoyed redoing antiques and making them beautiful again.

Coffee is ready. Neighbor Ron is bringing his 5 Cornish Cross over this morning. We’ll get them on ice for him to take home. He’s going to help me butcher 5 more that go to Neighbor Russell. Russell is coming over Saturday morning before he hits the hay field and we’ll butcher his other 5. Today is a chicken day.
