errands and bummers


The bridge was down for like six hours! Down as in stuck open. Not collapsed, or stuck down. Thankfully I was on this side of the water. I checked in on the doggie and let him know Celia would be home eventually. I worked. I drew.


Worked even more. Did a nice long shift of posting things on eBay and trying to figure out changes at PayPal. A good long stint with the pets over at Celia's (for good wifi access that won't interrupt my flow with being awful). Sam was very helpful with all his rubbing on the computer screen.


Slept too far in. My sleeping schedule is back to being awful. Ran into Silverdale and got my prints back. The photos didn't turn out that great, but that could have just been the printer. Not a good resolution/quality print, so they were kinda fuzzy. Not like the classic photo printing. Kinda bummed that they don't look as good. Was wishing for some quality prints to cherish, ya know? And my photo with the McElroys didn't even make it on the film (it was the last shutter, so I guess it wasn't the actual last) so that sucks. It probably would have been dark anyway, but uhhg. That's a nice thing about digital photos: you know you got them! So next time, if there is a next time, I'll find a place to develop that does everything in house. Because something was lost in shipping the stuff off to be developed and then digitally transferred to a disk.

Got some froyo. Did a mini Target run. Went back home. Tomorrow is Mel's bridal shower. The bacherlorette party is in October in a month. Under a month. Then her wedding! Which will be the last wedding for a while I think...

Monday & Tuesday

Did more work from home. Getting good feedback on the work. On Monday I chilled at home. Ate the remainders of my food and it was obvious I'd have to go food shopping the next day. Went food shopping on Tuesday in the afternoon, not nutter-o-clock where someone threatens you to a duel in the parking lot of the QFC.  Got a bunch of my usual foods and returned home. Monday was the SYTYCD finale numbers. I'm rooting for Jaja. Some really good routines abound. Such good dancers, the lot of them! Pretty mellow couple days.

Not much scheduled for the next few days. Weather is mild.

What more do you want from me? A drawing? Here:

it's a living

Got a bit more accomplished on the animation for work, drawings and what not. Hope to knock out some more details tomorrow. I've been slacking.

Spent a good chunk of the afternoon in the bath reading. That was nice. I need more bath salts though. Or just bubble bath. Something to make the bath nice. It's bath season.

I need to go food shopping too. Blehh.

Work, chilling, warming, whatever.

Thursday & Friday & Saturday

Ma and Pa came up for a two night visit. Work around the property, work out of the weather, work in the narrow window when the weather is better. First day the weather turned stormy right as they arrived, so we mostly stayed in, played some board games, watched The Tick, and ate food. Second day it was windy but not stormy, but way too windy to be outside for any proper labor, so we made apple juice. Mom and Dad cut apples in the living room, I pulped them in the kitchen, and we pressed them outside. Three pressings? Four? Maybe five? Not as big of a harvest as previous years, but still got some good juice. Celia came over with pasta and garlic bread for dinner, and Dad read out some Poirot. Third day we hauled up wood from the beach bank for firewood and I painted sealant on the doorframe to protect it from the elements. Switching the house over to winter mode. I've turned on the wall heaters for the time being. Not looking forward to the slow climb up of the electric bill. But at least I'm not spending the time watering all the plants. Everythings looking much more green.

Went up to Port Townsend and caught the 7:30 showing of The Diary of a Teenage Girl. Pretty good movie. Nice to see a female coming of age film, that's directed by a woman, and based on a story by a woman. I can see how it'll be controversial, unfortunately, but damn it resonated with me. Hope it does well. It's super limited release, unfortunately!

Tomorrow I work. Probably.
