Q2 quarterly report

OK, from April 1 through June 30, I put in 383.25 hrs working, that's either in the studio, doing admin stuff, working on a web site, teaching/taking classes, or PR related stuff. That works out to be about 29.5 hours a week (counting 13 weeks). Doesn't include snack breaks, phone interruptions, etc. etc. I can live with that.

Went grocery shopping early afternoon, and came back to find the refrigerator so stuffed that I had to clean that out to put in the new groceries. One thing led to another, found some stuff that really needs to be used up, so made some onion pancakes. All these distractions took up most of the afternoon, but now I have a pretty clean frig and some onion pancakes in the freezer.

There are 4 artist's having exhibits/shows in July, all with openings on this Thursday, so had a lot to write up for the Portland Open Studios blog this afternoon.

The movie tonight was La Vie En Rose (yes, Transformers was on the list, but it didn't get picked by the Random Selector). The actress playing Edith Piaf is impressive.

That's a respectable amount of work. Good for you.

Hmm, this idea of a quarterly report appeals to me. I get in and out of the habit of keeping track of the time I spend writing in my calendar book. But I usually only add it up weekly.

I have a hard time ever feeling like I've done enough.

Keeping track of my work time has been enormously helpful. it keeps me on my toes, and it makes me feel good when I see how much time I have devoted to work. And these hours are actual work hours too, no chit-chat time and such.
