WiP Wed (11/18/20)

I’m in that headspace where I think it’s Tuesday, but I also think it might be Thursday, so I keep checking the calendar and am like, no, wait, it’s Wednesday! Time for my WiP post! Here’s what’s going on in the studio this week… In ceramics, I have so much detail painting work to do that I think I understand why my right arm is bothering me! Constant squeezing of the paint tubes I’m using to get the thin lines has exacerbated the low-level tennis elbow I’m always prone to anyway because of my knitting. Artist down, y’all! Artist down!...

My energy level the last two days (going to bed at 9 PM is normal, right? And trying to sleep later than 7?) and my ability to stay focused (SQUIRREL!) are both telling me that maybe I should have taken one more week off of work… but also I have things to do, and need to get out of my own head, and out of my own way. So things are slow this week, but moving! In ceramics, I have a lot to glaze, to restock before GLAM (which as of this moment is both online and in person -more...

Hello, and happy Wednesday! (* looks around * … it is Wednesday, right???) This week is a bit of a wash for me, work-wise — a dentist appointment on Monday in the late morning and a mammogram later today in the early afternoon, both of them an hour away from the studio. Hooray for taking care of myself, but boo for not feeling very accomplished. Oh, and after today’s appointment, I’m headed out of town. I’m coming back either Sunday or Monday (I’ll know by Saturday) and am planning on getting SO MUCH DONE NEXT WEEK. Meanwhile, what about last...

Whoo, what a week. Troublesome gave me a bit of a scare yesterday; apparently he got in a fight with something, some time between 10 PM on Monday and 8 AM on Tuesday. I knew he was acting weird (sleeping really heavily and not coming to me when I called) but I didn’t realize how weird until he finally came down low enough from the shelves he was on, and then he growled at me when I picked him up. He has *never* growled at me before, so I rushed him off to an emergency vet visit (after losing Wilder...

I’m catching up on a lot of things this week. Not getting ahead, mind you, but catching up! And I’m heading out of town tomorrow morning — I’ll be bringing some writing work with me, and of course I’ll have access to email and social media, but I won’t be in the studio so anything ordered after about late this afternoon will have to go out Monday. In ceramics, I’m recovering from Socks breaking a bunch of hard work. I’m trying to shrug it off - everyone’s a critic - and focus on more, better work. I have a lot...
