I’m going to see if I can actually make this happen this time around. I’m still feeling like I’m in a funk, but I don’t feel like grey clouds are hanging over me either, so I’m taking it as a positive sign. So just a few goals:
For the last three days I’ve been dealing with some serious migraine issues. Pretty sure though, as of today at least, that it’s allergy related. The headache itself is now under control, but I still have this dull throbbing, now finally centralized over the left side of my face. I also learned the other week that my rogue tooth will be meeting the end of its life before it develops potential severe symptoms for me. A few years ago, I had a strange anomaly show up on my x-rays showing a dark center to my tooth. On the outside of the tooth, it’s looked just fine, no problems (I still haven’t even had symptoms). Dentist sprayed direct cold air on it to get me to react (I felt absolutely nothing). So, we’ve been keeping an eye on it. At my last cleaning, the hygienist noticed that it’s started to look pink on the outside. The x-ray this year (when compared to last year’s), show there’s quite a bit more degradation to the inside of the tooth.
This last week was a long week. I had back to back meetings and then our major programmatic meeting at the end of the week. Thankfully, Friday wrapped up early (by noon) and I was able to take care of a few in office things and kind of unwind for a bit. I’ve also taken a much needed four day weekend (because why would anyone go in after two days off, work one day, get the next day off, then work the rest of the week)… 4th of July lands on a Tuesday, and I honestly would rather have consecutive days off. So I took monday for myself. Now I’m just kind of doing random things and playing with creative things.
Pulled out my fractal programs. Did some abstract rendering. This last week has been kind of a blur for me. I’ve taken more steps to free myself of my old life and I’ve taken more steps in trying to figure out where I want to go life wise. I might expand more on that later, but for now, here’s some art.
I am beginning a much needed four day weekend. I thought I’d start it out right by finishing a few pieces and started with this one. No special story to go with it, I’m kind of not in the creative writing mood, but I’m pretty happy with this one. I’m thinking of doing a few more renders with this character (will see if I actually carry said renders to the completion line). I’m also seemingly in a monotone mood. Probably because we’ve been grey and dusky every single evening this week?
I really didn’t mean not to write for several weeks. I’ve just been caught up with life, which, honestly, is a good thing. I am also now bound and determined to conquer the art of crocheted clothing. I have some work to do on that front. This is the fourth item I’ve made (that’s not a shawl, scarf, wrap, etc). And I made a too big size. However, my sweetheart was kind enough to model.
