I’m back. No, I mean, REALLY. Although I’m getting a late start today, I think I’m over the jet lag, finally, and ready to move on.
I have a hair appointment today, one I would cheerfully skip because I hate sitting still for so long (go figure), but I’m attending the Desert Dreams Conference in Phoenix next weekend (yeehaw!!!) and I can’t go looking shaggy. I’ll take my knitting along–a plain black panel of garter stitch that will one day be a felted tote bag–and work on that during the non-drippy parts of the hair-styling process.
I came home from Spain to find lots of lovely ATCs waiting, from traders met on Art42.org and Swapbot, and I’m putting in extra art-therapy time so I can reciprocate.
Plans for the weekend include reading a manuscript I will be revising soon, and planting a few seeds, in anticipation of gardening season. I have some of those nifty indoor ‘greenhouses’–the things with plastic lids and little plugs of potting soil in them–and waiting will be hard. Patience is not my strong suit, as you may have guessed.
Today, the weather is deceptively beautiful. I mean, it looks and feels like JUNE out there. But only a couple of days ago, it was snowing, and we’re probably not out of the woods yet.
So I will be patient.
Have a good weekend.
