Being my own boss has many advantages. I have a lot of flexibility and set my own schedule. I can work long days or short days. I'm sure you can see this isn't always an advantage, but it does give me plenty of options.
I get to make all the decisions. Usually I enjoy that part of the job, unless the decisions are hard. I've had plenty of hard decisions lately. That's when I don't like being the boss.
The last couple days I cut myself some slack in the dyeing department. I'm the boss, so I get to make that decision. Summer returned with a vengeance, and I decided I wasn't going to add to the heat and humidity with long days of dyeing. Besides I had enough other work - bookkeeping, labeling, winding. OK, I may have given myself a little extra knitting time. Just a little.
Today it's rainy and cozy. It's a perfect day for knitting, but I have to put the needles down. In addition to everything else that needs attention, I have to pack for tomorrow's trip to Portland. It's a nice reminder that sometimes the decisions are easy.
I discovered this week's color inspiration in some dry bushes. It's a lovely color combination.
Eggplant and olive.
