Trash Talking Busy Bee, That’s Me

Another week has zipped past, and I have been one busy little bee.  I’ve finished four pieces all part of the collection I’ve been working on, although the last one is sporting a different symbol than the rest….sooo….one might come to the conclusion that it is not actually part of the collection….make of it what you will.  That collection is almost complete, and other separate pieces have been started, and more are in the planning stages.  Producing enough stock to ply my wares at my vendor booth next month at pagan pride day is hard work yo!

Meanwhile, my geek man got back into playing MagicTG……now I must design boxes to hold and organize his decks and so forth.  Which leads me into starting a new line of box designs.  Now, when I say he’s back into playing, what I really mean is he will be organizing and re-organizing his cards like a fiend….because that’s what he does when he’s not actually talking smack playing, LOL, it’s cute, and one of the many reasons I love him in all his geekery 😉

Amongst my painting, sketching, vendor planning, MagicTG spectating, oh and house cleaning; I caught up on the show Hung…which I think is an okay show, except for the inane need of every character to repeat Tanya’s name at the beginning of practically every sentence they say to her….AND they stress her name!  WHY?!  What is the point of this?  I find it highly irritating.  Otherwise, it’s a pretty likeable show.  It’s no True Blood, Dexter, Weeds, Breaking Bad, or Downton Abby…but it passes the time.  Oh, as a side note I guess, I also finished watching Girls….I don’t really know what I think of it other than wondering if I was ever that ridiculous…..I don’t think I was.  I’m pretty sure I was born wise in every aspect of life.  True story.

Speaking of True Blood…yeah I made that segue….the season finale is this Sunday!  I’m dying from anticipation of what will happen, while also crying that it will be the end until next summer!  It Sucks!  Of course depending on how they end this one, I may not want to continue watching it next season.  I swear, if they redeem Beehl and turn it all around into him being this god forsaken tortured soul getting lost from his humanity, or worse– him having been playing a long con to overthrow the sanguinistas….I will retch and probably cry real blood tears, then possibly write hate mail to Alan Ball.  I mean, really?  Beehl is no Angel/us.  Beehl “the Kang and chosen Jaun” is the bad guy people!  And I fear for the state of minds of these Bill-lovers eagerly awaiting Sookie to take him back….talk about delusional.  Maybe they are airing different versions of the show or something?  Or else they’re handing out samples of Lilith’s blood through certain viewers’ tv’s.  And has anyone else wondered what the point of Nora’s character really is?  Because so much of this season has been centered around her, but yet she’s an insubstantial character, we know nothing about her, and nothing so far has engaged me to like her.  All the characters on True Blood are pretty darn awesome and fleshed out…but somehow this one fell short…what’s up with that?  And how many of us are worried Eric will die sacrificing himself?  It seems very possible if you’re following the alchemical wheels of the show.  Of course that means he’d have to be resurrected somehow, which would be totes cool, if you ask me.  Which you would…ask me, that is.  Because what is True Blood without the Viking Vampire God?  Not worthy, that’s what.  Yeah, so, that’s my rant for the day.

Moving on and wrapping up the week, we took part in the eventful and stressful ritual of open house at the respective schools of our children.  I must say, I’m actually pleased with the teachers we were able to meet, and have high hopes that it will be a pretty good school year.  My eldest’s language arts teacher is ditching their big literature book for individual novel studies each semester, starting with “The Hobbit” for the first nine weeks.  My geek hubby asked if he could take her class too, he was so ecstatic about it, LOL, gotta love ’em.

That’s my week in a nutshell, given to you with the over-use of the word pretty as an adverb and a healthy does of True Blood fan worshiping, cause that’s how I roll.

Lackadaisical and Woebegone

Wow, many days have passed since my last post.  Curious how quickly that can happen.  Hubby was away again, this time for just two weeks, at another installation doing field problems.  I find I get a little melancholy at first when he’s away.  Which usually leads to retreating to my comfy chair and medicating with chocolate and reading lots of smut fanfiction and re-watching my fav shows like True Blood for that Eric Northman eye candy…..while seriously neglecting my painting.  It can take a little bit of time to pull myself out of that slump :/  Hence, my absence online of late.  Thank the gods I managed to steer clear of any head pain while I was absent my rock and helper!  Although, I did have the mother of all migraines a couple days before he left….I thought I’d had bad ones before!  Boy was I mistaken.  This one left me shaky in cold sweats and totally incapacitated!  It must have decided to double up on me so I wouldn’t have to deal with one while he was away!  Thanks for that….I guess…small mercies and all.

But, anyways, he’s back home!  YAY!  Which has me feeling much more like myself 🙂  And my painting inspiration is back on course.  I’m sure he loves knowing when he’s home I paint more….which leads to time away from him–at my desk, and when he’s gone I get nothing done because I miss him O_o  Yeah, I’m not always of the sense making….I’m a water sign…we’re wishy-washy that way…just deal. Okay?

So, I’ve bitten the bullet and decided to be a vendor at our local Pagan Pride Day next month!  So very Scary!  I need to get on the ball and produce more boxes to sell!  I just have to figure out how many of each type of box I already make that I want to have on hand, and then if I want to come up with new kinds as well.  I’ll probably also provide the option to order a customized box like I do on my Etsy shop, since so many people like to customize their own.  My head is swimming in all the ideas and things I’d like to do and wondering whether or not I can actually pull it off in time….queue the nail biting.

Well, I must be off…..painting to be done…..ideas to be had….inspiration to be found….

Thanks for stopping by and indulging me in views and likes….I hope! 😀

Mandatory holiday due to migraine visit

Worst migraine ever today! Didn’t get to eat because of the lovely nausea and now that it’s subsided I’m frakking starving!! Arby’s never smelled so good, no really, it never smells good to me! LOL. But it did tonight! Scarfed it right down…probably gonna regret that tho…..oh well, such is life. Looking forward to actually getting things done tomorrow! That’s the nice thing about migraines isn’t it? Once you’ve weathered a really heinous one, the next day should be an all clear from the gods. Right? ….for at least a week!

Hubby was on a four day weekend after going back to work last week….after 15 days on leave, plus kids on summer break….you can imagine the condition of my house. HA! Or what it would be if I didn’t have a truly amazing husband! Seriously, my dear love is a dream and helps out sooo much….especially since summer break started. But even so, I still have much work to do! (I can never seem to get very much done when he’s home LOL.) Once the housework is out of the way I can work on painting! I have some pieces I need to finish and some ideas to lay out for some sets I need to flesh out, and then some variations on some current pieces I want to recreate….we will see how much of that I can actually accomplish. But, first I’ll have to jumpstart my day with some yoga and then go from there 🙂 Here’s hoping for a glorious migraine free day!

Meanwhile the sandman doesn’t look like he’ll be visiting anytime soon after my impromtu holiday of sleeping that migraine away much of the day. Kicking back and re-watching last night’s epi of True Blood is at the top of my to-do list right now, maybe enjoy some chocolatey ice cream goodness while drooling over me some Vicking eyecandy v-v He was certainly full of snark last night wasn’t he!

Well, later dear friends!
