Summer has finally arrived in Tahoe. Spring was short-lived as we had snow flurries up until June 11, but now the temps are in the 80s and with the warm weather have come the tourists. As to be expected though, because this place is paradise and who wouldn’t want to be here?
Thanks to all of the visitors, my summer job at Angora Lakes Resort has been busy. It’s great having full-time work again, and I feel like I can take a breather now that I’m back to earning a full paycheck. As I wait for my art career to take off (and have been for the past 20 years!) and work seasonal jobs, life can be stressful (mostly the in-between jobs time). However, I’ve designed my life so that I have low overhead and not too many responsibilities. And, although I’m not a highly salaried techie working in Silicon Valley, my daily quality of life is priceless. Yes, I still need to make money, but until those Tahoe Rim Trail coloring books start paying the rent I’ll have to have a job. So, why not work somewhere I enjoy and a place with some nice views? This is literally a 2-minute walk from the resort, and where I eat lunch nearly everyday.
