So what have I been doing?
It’s quite simple, really. I have been working from home and writing and developing my online crochet business. So let me break it down…
Working from Home
I have a job that I work at a few hours a day. I am a scheduler with a Mystery Shopping company called A Closer Look. Plus, I also still do random mystery shops on the side. Scheduling normally takes 4 – 6 hours a day 6 days a week and consists mostly of emailing, calling and texting existing shoppers and recruiting new shoppers.
I am still working on my novel that many of you have been reading: Road of Change. Do not despair because more is coming soon.
I have an online craft store on Etsy where I post my crochet creations for sale. I also post them on eBay although I don’t have an eBay store front… no matter. I can still post items for sale.
I also post on Facebook’s Trash and Treasure and on Pinterest.
Those tasks take a minimal amount of time compared to actually creating the crocheted items.
Reading and Journaling
Additionally, I still read quite a bit. Every day. And I write n my journal. I make to-do lists and reminders and thoughts and ideas.
Needless to say, I have a pretty full day. I have found I am busier now than when I was working 40 hours a week at a job I absolutely detested. Retirement didn’t come quickly enough for me.
Now, working from my office, I have a wonderful view out of a window of a city street, my postage stamp sized back yard that has a bird feeder and bird bath, a chicken coop, rabbits living under my tool shed and a yet-to-be-planted outdoor garden. I can watch cars, weather, people walking, wildlife, trees and the neighbor grilling his chicken every afternoon when he gets home from work.
I love watching the world go by…
