do you like structure? I don't. I'm one of those people that really, really tries to adhere to a daily schedule and then ends up curling up in bed to read a new book and eat a cookie for breakfast (this morning). I'm not exactly the best candidate for having a shop for this reason. I tend to be very whimsical and become bored by the daily grind of structure. But i'm trying.
So, not that my days are that typical, but I thought I would share a 'somewhat-typical' day for me; I have read others that do this and I absolutely love reading about what others do in their daily lives (it's why i love autobiographies). Please, by all means, indulge me and link to your daily grind, or share some tips on how a girl like me can get better acquainted with structure.
6:30am: Wake up with Ry and make my way to the kitchen to get breakfast ready and make coffee. I hate mornings unless they involve being in bed, so this is usually all a blur.
7:00am: Walk Ry to the van and wave to him from the porch. Sometimes he does strange/funny things like pretend to ignore me and then do the Dramatic Look. love it.
7-8am: Clean-up around the house, do dishes, make the bed, etc. I'll sometimes use this time to go for a walk too. oh, and reheat my coffee at least once :)
8-10am: Now this depends. Sometimes I go on the computer and am productive. Sometimes I have an appointment or have to run errands for the shop. Since I don't close till 7pm, I tend to do all my errands in the morning. This is also when I tend to work a lot on Online Shop Stuff. Then there are times I go back to bed with the intention of only watching one of the Weeds Episodes and well, hours pass. oops.
10am-12pm: Getting ready for work and making my way there.
12pm-1pm: Setting up around the shop, putting out new things, taking pictures, etc. I like to pretend I'm having a party every day; I light a candle, spray pretty scents, set-things up, play music and put out my open sign (like an invitation). Then wait for guests to arrive :)
1pm - 7pm: Depending on how busy it is in the shop, I use the down time to plan, blog, upload pictures on facebook, catch up on e-mails, etc.
7pm - 10: Unless I have something planned, I close up shop and make my way home as soon as I can so I'm not eating too late. Most nights consist of flaking out with ry, or by myself. I also sometimes work in the studio on projects. I'm more of a pull an all nighter to get a bunch of things done kind of girl, so I do that every couple of weeks.
10pm: bedtime. Sometimes I stay up much later to get things done, but mostly I use this time to read.
That's my life, as typically as I can describe it. Of course there's always events, crisis and other life stuff thrown in there. Then there are the times I have a particularly bad day, come home, put on The Rolling Stones, lie on the floor and have some whiskey. But that's not typical. much. *winks*
