I am probably guilty of this but I have a lot of excuses. I know a lot of people seem to run out of ideas but I usually just don’t have time to work on all my ideas. Sometimes it is because I just don’t feel all that well (and I get lazy sometimes) and sometimes it is because life throws a few things at you that you don’t expect.
This has been an interesting week. My grandson came home with us Sunday after Church to watch football with me and while he was waiting for the game we wanted to watch to come on he went outside to hit golf balls. He hit one behind the house and found a dead deer in the yard. It looked like it had probably been hit by a car and ran up into the yard and died. I hooked a rope around it’s antlers and drug him away with the lawn mower because I didn’t want Phil and Chester (my comic strip buzzards) dining that close to the house.
The dead deer was not the only problem I had. The yard had been dug up and there were holes all in it. The next morning I looked outside and the armadillo who had done the damage was back. I won’t go into detail but he won’t be digging up my yard anymore.
Things are kind of slowing down at the Farmer’s Market for my jewelry but I have been putting some in shops on consignment. One of the shop owners called me with some special orders and I am kind of excited about the way things are going there.
The fun thing about the jewelry making is that I keep coming up with new designs and learning how to make new things. Several people have brought things to me that they wanted turned into jewelry and that is working out good. Now I can say that I custom make jewelry.
I did get rested during my break and I am not pushing things. I haven’t had time to do much drawing but I have some ideas that I hope to work on soon.
That is the news from Gatorhead. Why don’t you leave me a comment and let me know what is going on in your part of the world.
