Steady As She Goes

It's a sad fact of human nature that the more days there are on a weekend, the shorter it seems to be. Here it is Monday already and I haven't finished everything I wanted to do by Saturday night! But it's okay. One major reason that I didn't get as much done as I'd intended was that on Saturday laurie_robey and I went out and did a boatload of shopping, including a trip to the McKay's Used Books that netted me four big volumes of stories reprinted from Weird Tales at $.50 - $1.00 each. Score!

(Speaking of which, I haven't seen Weird Tales lately. Did it go out of business again?)

Anyway, for the moment at least it looks like work has calmed down, I don't have any (working) cons bearing down on me, there are no family activities planned in the foreseeable future, and our major home projects (that I know of, at least) are done until autumn.

THANK YOU, POWERS THAT BE! Please continue this happy trend for as long as possible!

For you see, this means that hopefully I can stop treading water and start making progress again. I have a commission that's been getting shoved aside since last year sometime that I really wanted to finish before AC but couldn't. A surprise project due this week popped up over the weekend. Both strips need attention. And gaming would be a nice change! There's also the fact that I haven't had any proper exercise for months — it's only the fact that my eating habits have shrunk drastically lately that's kept me from gaining weight.

All of these things are evidence of a Gneech with too many plates spinning in the air. So if life finally sits down and shuts up for a while, maybe I can get out from under it all! I sure hope so.

Artspots Update

Yup, it was a site-wide thing. It's posted right there in the forum, in fact, and if I hadn't been so harried lately I might have thought of that.

I must admit being ambivalent to this idea at best, but it's their site and they've got their reasons. So on we go! Hopefully it'll mean increased traffic to my gallery, in any case. :)
