Spoiler alert- I’m (not) complaining. Are any of you finding it hard to make the time to follow all the Blogs you normally do in the winter? How can it be JULY
ALREADY?! I miss my slower winter routine, I miss reading all of the Clay Blogs and even a couple of cranky-chicky-complainer Blogs I secretly follow. I want to make more time for clay, encaustics, lounging on the deck reading trashy chick-lit, hiking up Mt. Alyeska, fly fishing, or even going to a mid-day movie with Gus…waaah, waah, waa. There are so many fun things we’re packing into our summer days that it leaves little time for me to do my other routine fun stuff! We finally got the fabric screened and cut for the cool, new Raven Garden Flag project I’ve been
collaborating with Jana at The Quilted Raven! Wow, this has been more of a project than both of us anticipated. The goal is to have kits at her quilt shop and finished sets for sale at my Spenard Farmers Market booth. The very talented Judy Walyer sewed up a fantastic sample set for the quilt shop and now I need to design the full color insert for the retail kits. My summer schedule has left very little time for being at my computer and combine that with the fact that my graphic designer brain has been on hiatus, this project is what I needed for a good kick-start.
Nimbus has been adjusting beautifully to his new home and schedule –though it’s meant some MAJOR changes in our family routine. More exercise for Daddy-O and I, a new jog-bra for me(!) and keeping the Bunny in his cage more… Bunny
Foo-Foo used to free-range in the studio but for his sake, no more unlimited free-ranging. This is working out good for everyone including bunny. He has started to get a little kooky in his senior moments and has been doing weird things so a little more kennel time is good. Our crazy rabbit is over 11 years old, which is considered geriatric by bunny standards and he’s still going strong. Derek says it’s because of all the organic veggies I feed him… We’re just saying his new arrangement is like spending more time safely in “his retirement condo.” When we run Nimbus outside, Bunny Foo-Foo gets his inside exercise too, I’ve just had to make myself a little reminder that the rabbit bait is loose in the studio before Nimbus heads inside…
