A Little Bananas....

For "King of the Apes" aka: Tarzan, Treehouse in Hong Kong for a large
theme park where a certain mouse and his friends might be spotted playing....

I'm at work today. My day job. Trying to work Full Days Tues and Thurs for a bit,
so I can get our home life in order. Striving to be a better wife, homemaker, mother, cook,
housekeeper, business partner, organizer, construction foreman woman, gardener, employer,
crafter. (yeah, it's a tall order, but I am optimistic.)

So, as a launch to my new self/schedule, in addition to all that is happening at our house, 
today I'm moving my office!!!

For the last five or so years, I've been working in the office below Phillips office.

A few months ago, I took apart my really nice maple-topped desk (bought 2nd hand, of course,
from an office supply re-seller) so I could re-finish the tops and paint the filing cabinet/drawer
bases bright white. Thus, I have been working at two folding tables for a bit 
(they are actually quite functional, given the circumstances).

At any rate, we've hired a long-time friend to head up our design/engineering department (our 
impending house guest - until his family can move up in June). He will occupy my soon-to-be
former office space. My office will be on the other side of the wall.

So, I'm on the move......



Dreaming of a break.... 
and maybe some snacks.

Classic N and N's. 
That's how the little kids say it!

Just look at those big baby blues.

Some BEAR!!!

Those props are fantastic, the ones from Chalotte's Web really brought back memories.

I hope your move goes well and stress free. Stress is no good for those creative juices.

Good Luck with it, you are a trooper and I know you'll come out shining!
