Life has been complicated, messy, & anxiety-ridden lately.
Umm… well, it’s always been that way, but it’s been that times about 5 for the last few weeks.
I’ve tacked back on some extra stress flab, & am trying really hard to correct that, watching what I eat, getting outside more to do yardwork, & contemplating working out. (Thinking about it really hard works brain cells, so why can’t it burn calories too? Something doesn’t seem quite right with that)
I just haven’t been much in the mood to write.
I’m sure some of my regulars have noticed a dearth of words here.
Even the fiction has been virtual- virtually non-existent. It’s been ages since I posted any flash fiction.
The creativity has been channeling into crafts, instead of the blog.
I’d apologize… but I’m not really sorry.
Take a look at what has been crafted in the last month………..
Made a cat tower out of some old “under-the-bed” drawers & some old carpet sticky squares & rope.
Finished a dresser my dad gave me- I love the raw wood color, so I just put a couple coats of polyurethane spray on it, filled nail holes, & put on the drawer pulls & keyhole covers.
Made a sign for my dad (a belated father’s day gift). Those are the grandson’s handprints at the bottom. He does a lot of woodworking, & has a whole old house filled with his projects, tools, etc.
And, the piece de resistance is…
A nightstand I’ve got about 20 hours of work into, sanding, painting…
Liquid gold paint on the 2 opposing sides…
Updated – Finished the blossoms on the opposite side tonight. Accent colors tomorrow, & it’ll be finished before the weekend!
Then, I’ll fill in texture & depth colors, and poly – coat it to protect when I’m finished.
Everything else, including blogging much, has gone on the back-burner for now.
But I ain’t dead yet.
