I’m Not Dead … Yet ;)

Sorry for the really long lapse between postings.  The reasons are varied, but combine busy-overload with creative funk, along with a bit of cleaning and reorganizing.  And … officially entering my 5th decade of life.  OUCH! My family knows me so well … And they all came to celebrate with dinner and cake at our …

Minimal Adulting …

We got thru tax season 2019.  It was a painful week, but we beat the deadline.  We did ‘OK’ this year – we felt the tax law changes, but came out ‘winning’ … For whatever reason, this year’s tax prep was UNBELEVIABLY painful.  I never wanted to miss a deadline as badly!  So, it’s Friday …

Studio Time, Presents and Dogs … OH MY!

Week Wrap-up

I realize my life is set up different than most … My ‘work week’ begins on Saturday and ends at 7am Monday morning, but I like to think I cram a whole lot of headache, turmoil, drama, etc into that 48 hour window (enough to equal most folks work week) … So for me, Friday …
