What a day. Some early morning design ideas, working on carving and some writing. Then out the door early and the feels like temp was 10 degrees so don’t say I’m not dedicated. Got to warm up with some old friends over breakfast and laughs. Then a relaxing afternoon which was needed. Worked on some shots in the home studio. What a good start to a Saturday.
So today is national pizza day. OK I’ll go with my local favorite and the best topping in the world. BACON.
Chopping away at some wood today. Both this guy in the photo, and me. I’m trying to discover the techniques and touch needed for bit 106 on my Dremel tool. Also working on a surprise for a family member.
I’m back to working with wood.
So beautiful is the grain. So wonderful the knots.
So strong the oak. So soft the balsa.
Such depth in sculpture. Such comfort to rest on.
So dusty. So rough.
So smooth. So polished and stained.
So rich in texture. Even in death it gives life.
OK, only another day off and then the madness begins again. Looks like the weather could complicate matters again on Monday and Tuesday. Such is the season. For some reason I’m not going into this coming week like the last with energy and positive spirits. Will see if I can turn that around in the next 24 hours.
I can’t figure out why some work weeks start to stress me out more than others. Probably just the way I’m looking at them. So maybe I should just chill out like the weather.
Random Thoughts of the Day
The older I get the more I try to think back through the eyes of a child.
I’m overdue for a dump run.
I’m glad I was raised so there are pictures of my parents displayed around my home. I hope my kids do the same someday.
Too laugh is to live. So says me.
Timing in life is as important as timing is to a comic.
Its been a long time since I’ve made long term goals.
