------------------------<>-----------------------Webster describes the Dog Days of Summer as:
1 : the period between early July and early September when the hot sultry weather of summer usually occurs in the northern hemisphere
2 : a period of stagnation or inactivity
Air Conditioning may take care of some of #1, but as far as #2 is concerned, we're in full swing, if you can describe stagnation as swinging. This month and next will allow little studio time due to assorted family members coming and going... happy to have them, make yourself comfortable! But don't think nothing is being accomplished, good grief! Quite the opposite... just not much art happening. Wait... let me take a little of that back! I've got stuff on the pegboards in the studio, some of it beginning to look pretty good... especially considering I don't spend more than 30 minutes at a time in the room... that would be 30 minutes per day... or so. Yeah, I've got a few soft deadlines...enough to usually kick me into gear... but it ain't happening right now. S'okay... it will, no need wasting paint.
Had a great time with a g-kid who was here from NOLA for volleyball camp at the University. She enjoyed, we enjoyed... and then she flew home. A whole wad of them will be back early August... I'll be on overload but lovin' it! No camp to keep them busy so we'll be in overdrive. Expect lots of references to exhaustion but it's the kind that happens when one's cup overflows. Life is good (but summer is hot and way humid!)
