Well, yesterday after carving a bunch of stamps I realized I was out of shipping envelopes. I have an order in for more, but they haven't arrived yet. I decided to work on a painting I'd started a few months ago and haven't had time to get back to since. It was nice to paint again. Sometimes it's good to take a break from one medium and go back to another. This one's fun - I'm obviously not shooting for realism here. It's almost finished. I'm going to paint the sides (it's on a wood panel) the same checkerboard pattern as on the owl's belly. Then I need to decide whether or not to sell it.
Tonight we're going to party/breast cancer fundraiser. Should be a good time. It's being hosted by a woman I used to work with, so I'll see a lot of my former Verizon coworkers. That's always weird because my life is so different now than it was when I still worked there. Seventeen years in various corporate cubicle drone positions...ugh. If I had to it again I think I'd implode.
I may be poor now, but I'm a lot happier.
