November 22, 2022
A day late for this update because (spoiler alert) I was on the road most of the day yesterday.
Monday, November 14: Okay, so this is a bit embarrassing. I took no photos this day. Not even any screenshots of pretty pictures I colored in my app. The only thing I added to my photos was this meme I saved from somewhere, probably Facebook. Yes, it makes me giggle but still.
Tuesday, November 15: The balloon is still flying, but not for long. All the weights and ribbons are gone, removed gradually as the helium bled away. Some hours after I took this photo, the balloon got too close to the glass fireplace screen and one side of the outer balloon got all wrinkled. Sad.
Wednesday, November 16: What passes for a busy day here. I tested myself for COVID before going out since I had the sniffles. Had to do it twice because the first test didn’t give a strong control line. Both showed negative. Then Mr. K and I went to vote. Not a lot of inspiring choices on our ballot but giving up is not an option. After voting, we treated ourselves to pizza, happy to find the back for a limited time Detroit style was still on the menu. Then, grocery shopping.
Thursday, November 17: No more flying. The balloon didn’t just wrinkle its outer shell on the fireplace screen this time, it melted it right through. It had a good run.
Friday, November 18: Lots of activity in the sawmill next to the studio. Logs stacking up, a new building being built. Thus more dust in my space but I can’t complain given how little I pay for it compared to the hot market around here.
Saturday, November 19: Opening day of the 2022-23 ski season! Good to be back out there.
Sunday, November 20: State of the studio. I moved some things around so I could host a small group of friends. It’s not fancy but it’s functional.
