This is the question I’ve been asking myself recently as April has become May and May will soon be June. Time is moving SO quickly that fall will be here before we know it. (I know that all the Canadians reading this are cursing me in their minds)
Some of you may have noticed I’ve disappeared from the Etsy world for a while. Some of you have probably forgotten that you’ve been following this page in the first place. I’ve been in gypsy-like transition for a few months now. Luke and I packed up our stuff and headed to Swift Current for the summer. I blame this sudden urge to move on “the great student migration” as I like to call it. Where I’ve spent the last 4 years moving home for the summers between academic years at university. #studentprobs #HashtagsAreAnnoyingAndSometimesPretentious
Since the end of March I’ve been working at Riverdene Garden Centre! What is that you may ask? Only the best greenhouse in town! I think my technical job title is ‘greenhouse worker’ but I prefer ‘professional hobbit’. It has literally been the best experience. My bosses and coworkers are AMAZING. Also, I didn’t know how much I’ve missed being employed by someone else until I received that first paycheck (all the other artists, creatives, and entrepreneurs, say amen) and when asked ‘what am I going to do today’ I can actually respond ‘I'm going to work!'
Since we only plan on staying in Swift Current for the summer, we’re in heavy transition. The place we’re currently renting is pretty much fully furnished so a lot of our stuff—including my art studio is in various garages. But I’m not complaining. This house compared to our old house is like comparing Douglas Street to Duckworth Street. If you’re confused about my simile, you probably haven’t played the 1982 edition of Canadian Monopoly. Come on guys.
So my goal this fall is to be settled in Saskatoon and have a more permanent art studio. We’ll see how well that works out. Please don't drool on your keyboard too much as you admire the haven of the greenhouse. For more small updates and greenhouse photography you can follow my instagram @desiraefritzke
