Things are moving along at quite a clip around here lately. While Oscar is being happily kept busy by his summer activities I have had a lot of time on my hands to plug away on all sorts of projects and new ideas. I keep thinking after this one next thing I'll chill out, take a break, read a magazine on the porch but it's not shaping up to be that sort of summer. I guess to be honest, I never really shaped up to be that sort of person. Never been the lounging sort. I always have to be working away on something.
the somethings at present...
I've been thinking about dissolving thriftcraft and bringing it back into the fold of w.w. I just cannot handle the spam over there anymore. I wake up to a full inbox and click excitedly on inbox to see who all emailed me. oh, ring tones. great. I can't take that kind of dissapointment every day. But I do love thriftcraft so and even though it's been pretty sparse over there lately I know I'll come back to it full force some day. So then I was thinking maybe a partner? I don't know. Have to do something though, it is causing me some low grade anxiety just sitting there like that.
Yesterday in the shower I thought up maybe the most excellent book idea ever. Well most excellent for me. I love this idea. It has that new idea glow. You know when they're all shiny and new and reality hasn't scratched them up one bit. Instead of just shelving it like I have the other silly book ideas I've had I'm going to see if I can see it through to a proposal at least. How's this for a title, Silly Book Proposal #128. Who could pass on that?
Speaking of childrens books we've discovered some really amazing new books this summer I'll have to post about them soon.
And in the less hypothetical realm, the apartment in being taken over by WIP piles. Add those to the stacks of library books and the towers of mailing supplies and I think I've filled up every square inch of empty space. That's my plan for today...must restore empty space.
If I really was a robot, like Oscar, I'd have had all this stuff done already this morning, before I finished this first cup of coffee. Maybe if I could squeeze myself into that little box...
