Phew, we have hit the shortest day and now heading for longer days. I hate winter – have I mentioned that before? I just don’t like being cold! And since losing weight, cold is something I feel a lot. What is funny though, is that one of the side effects of my antidepressants is excessive sweating, so when I layer up, and get working, I sweat! I can’t win. At least in summer its cool enough to strip off and go for a swim – too cold to jump in the shower!
So a bit of time spent between here and Motueka, spent Saturday night with my Mum. Its nice to spend time with her. During the holidays I hope to do a bit more of that.
So, have I been writing… yeeeesss? Kind of. I got Dragon Natural Speaking for my laptop, and so far it has been fun – just setting the bloody thing up is hard – and the microphone worked the first time but not the second time. And having to think about what you want to write..? That has to be the hardest. Mostly when I am writing, the words just flow into my fingers without a lot of conscious thought going into it. I guess it will take a bit of time to get used to it.
I have been doing some art this week, mostly backgrounds for my prints. I’ve also got some more mountain pictures so I can work on my lino cuts. I might even have a go and placing them over the top of each other… just to see what happens – lol.
Anyway, today I am feeling incredibly inspired. I want to get some writing done, and I have a friend coming around – so do I do it first thing, before she arrives, or vacuum the house first… hmmm, decisions, decisions.
I hope you have your week planned out.
