I would like to give you pictures of the landscaping projects that are in process – – or have been accomplished….
Or show you how high the Jerusalem Artichokes and Sunflowers are, or how beautiful the fantabulously drought-tolerant Golden and Burgundy Amaranths are –
Alas – despite my best intentions, I had little website work in June and now, 3 sites to get up and out for approval by end of next week – –
An existing customer called a few days ago and asked for some documentation for their funding resource – seems what I previously provided was impressive in it’s low cost, but they’d like to have another meeting and have new pages that are clearly marked as to which phase we are doing when – –
They are dragging their feet – says I – They’ve had this information since April – – You continue to pay out of pocket each month, as they ask for more stats, watermarked estimates, etc…..
This is why any business I launch is paid for by me – – -too much time/trouble convincing investors and the time spent jumping through their hoops could be put to good use actually BUILDING something –
Alas, I always gravitate towards business ideas that rely on my own brain, skill, know-how and existing tool set – – Not everyone is so lucky – there are those grand ideas that need funding for buildings, equipment, R&D, prototypes, etc….
Now that you know the history, my customer advised, part way through the conversation, as I added the required text to each phase estimate and cut/pasted the documents into one long historical document, for their printing convenience, he said,
“Well, you just have to deal with ID 10 TS’s”
And, swear to gawd! I did not get it until I wrote it down – – Sheesh! I need a vacation – – –
I realized I had once more slipped into Dereliction of Duty status here at WordPress when Sue left a comment to check and make sure she wasn’t missing my new posts in her email inbox and to make sure I hadn’t died – – Thank You, Sue! You make me feel so loved and cared for!
(Want to see amazing art and gardens? Check out Sue’s slice of cyberspace!)
And so, dear friends, neighbors and family here at WordPress – I’m once again working my tail off – trying to keep ahead of the curve ball and failing to take pictures of anything as I race from one project to another – –
But I’m doing my meditation and heat lamp treatments religiously – –
I’m only working a max of 14 hour at a time and making sure to get a good night’s sleep – –
And I’m slowly, but surely, implementing lessons learned from the past…
Except for how durn long it takes me to get caught up when I don’t log in and read every day!
Hope this finds you well and I’ll catch up with your world here soon – feel free to leave a comment, begging me not to leave 23 likes and 8 comments on your blog all at one time, at the end of July, when I can luxuriate in reading all day long once more …..
You ask and I swear, I’ll space them out to one a day – – 🙂

glad you are back – and I choose B.) Comment if you wish and not if you don’t.
Love the ID 10 TS phrase, I ‘ll remember that one. 🙂
🙂 Thank you!
Nice to see you back in my inbox 🙂 x
Struggling with the reality of how life unfolds, slow, then all in a rush – thank you so much for your faithful visits and can’t wait to get caught up with your doings! 🙂
I absolve you utterly from the need to comment 😉
Yes, life can be a bit of a bugger as the saying goes… all or nothing, all the time. Still, it keps it interseting 😉
Okay – clarification – Does “I absolve you utterly from the need to comment” mean:
A. Please, Please don’t make me read/approve/reply to 20 comments all before I’ve had my coffee one morning –
B. Hey, if you want to comment, fine, but if you don’t, I understand – –
We’ll go for B 🙂
I’m getting enough jobs, that, going over my budget, it occurred to me, “I might actually be able to afford that England/Scotland/Ireland trip next summer” – – It’s still on my List and everytime I read a post of yours as you tour the countryside and visit churches, landmarks, natural wonders, I ache to visit in person – keep your fingers crossed for me! (except for when you need to type or Ani needs the ball thrown, of course! LOL)
Well, if you do manage it… let me know!!! 🙂 Happy to meander a bit and share a few of the choice bits with you!
Oh Sue, that is my fondest wish – to meet and visit those sites you love, with your knowledge, have a fantabulous meal at a local pub and getting to visit in person! It would be loverly, and at the risk of being too forward, when I plan the trip, I’ll be emailing to check dates and get your ideas on itinerary! 🙂
Email away… 🙂 It would be terrible if you came over and I missed out on meeting you!
And I know many a nice little country pub.. pretty much the length and breadth of the country … 😉
Which, in addition to knowing the churches, natural wonders and flora/fauna viewing opportunities, I view you as the Ultimate Tour Guide! 🙂 It’s a plan then, and ooohhh – just got goosebumps – – – 🙂
Then it’s a plan 🙂
Good to hear from you again. I like the way you say “…just have to deal with ID 10 TS’s”.
Not my invention, but definitely a term I shall relish using often! LOL
How are you, my friend?
I’m surviving in this terribly hot weather….feels like 39 deg C everyday :(. Shaye refused to wear anything at home except her diapers…..LOL
My sympathies – living in the mountains for so long, I’ve still not adjusted to the heat of the plains – and since I can change my own diapers, wishing it was okay for me to wear nothing but…. LOL
Hang in There! 🙂
Thanks! Stay in touch and think happy *(^___^)*
I would, if only I didn’t get distracted by diaper rash – – LOL
