In some ways I feel like the past few weeks I have been squeezing myself through a tunnel - a not particularly well lit tunnel, one with lots of sticky cobwebs that I've had to brush by/through.
But I also feel as though I'm nearing the end of that tunnel and the cob webs are mostly swept away.
Yesterday I worked some more on the article for Handwoven and it is almost done. I still have to do the weaving draft, print out all the paperwork and copy it to a cd as well. Then all that's left is to find a box of the right size, confirm the address to which the parcel should be shipped and get it into the mail.
Brought my ledger up to date and balanced. Found a box for my receipts. Will phone the accountant and find out when she is open so I can drop all that off for year end. On the 2nd I'll file the sales tax for the last quarter and pay that before I leave, too. And hope Doug remembers to pay the bills while I am away.
I also wove on the last sample for A Good Yarn: Rayon. The before samples were taped and cut and the rest wet finished. This morning I dug through my reference books and drew up an outline. Who knows, I may yet start on that today. Or not. Tomorrow is another day. :^)
The pressing also got done today and I have a stack of place mats and towels to hem. The yardage for the designer just needs to be measured and an invoice drawn up. Then that can get mailed, too. If I can find the address - they moved mid-December and gave me a different address. Where I put it I'm not too sure at the minute. :(
There was a bunch of other administrivia, too, so I feel like I haven't stopped!
Tomorrow I will phone the travel agent. My tickets were supposed to be ready Friday and I never did remember to phone - until it was too late. So I will phone first thing in the morning so that if I do have to go to the mall, I can do it while it isn't terribly busy.
Then my suitcases will come out and things will get tossed in as I think of them. Not a very scientific way to pack, but it seems to work for me....I have two weeks left before I leave and a few more things I'd really like to get done. We'll see if I make it.
