A Zen Place

It was cool yesterday. The low was freezing but the high only got to 3.6C or 38.5F. Not as warm as expected. This morning our low is -2.4C or 28F. Who knows what the weather will be like today. Right now, cloudy with some wind.


I was relaxing yesterday morning when I got a call to go to work. I hustled around and got to the store at 11:30 a.m. I did 30 minutes of clean up prior to the store opening and then did cash during store hours. It was a quieter day so I also put out notions overstock. I am working my way through a cupboard that is a total disaster. The only time the door has been open was to stuff more notions and buttons into it.
I was quite upset to have to give up my day off as one employee decided to take the day off at the last minute. It really ate at me for a while but then I put myself into a Zen place. I have decided that I am not worrying about others at work unless we team work. I will do my job and stop worrying about things that I have no control over. I have realized that I can only do so much and when the day is done, I know I have done my best. I needed to take myself to that place in my life.
The Spousal Unit was feeling horrid yesterday. He had the stomach flu and spent the day on the couch sleeping. He ate a bit of food and by last night he looked much better. He has been fighting it for a couple of days.


One of the assistant managers and I looked at a couple of neat patterns yesterday. The one I liked was McCalls 7331.
I will not be buying this pattern as I have enough patterns in my sewing room to make this outfit. It is the idea that I really liked.


I am home until 5:30 and then off to a staff meeting until 7:30 p.m. My plan is to clean house, do laundry, and squeeze in a bit of time in the sewing room even if it is only to change the thread on my serger.
Until tomorrow...........................

  1. I go with your idea of "doing my job and not worrying about others at work". Sometimes though (in my case anyway) that's easier said than done and it causes me lots of stress and anxiety. I need to find your Zen place! Hope spousal unit is feeling a lot better today.
