It was so gorgeous when I got home that Liesl decided to play for a long time in the yard. She generally likes to stay close to me, but she had gopher holes to inspect. I was making chicken breast for dinner, which is her favorite, so I made her a plate, too. She thought this was the best day ever. She is such a happy girl and has adjusted pretty well to her mom's new job.
The job is going fantastically. I am learning a lot, which can seem overwhelming some days. It will all come in good time, but I have a lot to learn first. My other team member is a quilter and crafter so we got to talk today. She is much more advanced than I am at quilting so I am in awe.
I am still trying to find the balance of my day. I have the best of intentions of stitching when I get home in the evening. My head is so crammed full of information that I tend to just want to read or watch television after I have made and eaten dinner, given Liesl attention, finished up a few chores, etc. Again, I know it will come, so I have to be patient with myself.
So all in all, things are pretty wonderful. I am well and happy. I will be so much happier when I get to be really good at my job. But that is a journey...
