Far from it. I might actually have too much to write. I’ve been on quite the spree of, well all of it. Tons of writing, drawing, a bit of woodworking, and even gathering the goods for building honest to gods and goddesses buildings. We are still in sore need of a proper chicken coop, and I still want my bad-ass art shack of bad-ass artistry.
I don’t know if I mentioned it, but the teacher for the class I’ve been subbing in gave us a potter’s wheel. It has been picked up, and it needs some tinkering but we HAVE A FRIGGING POTTER’S WHEEL. This has easily been a dream of mine for thirty years. There is just something fun about pottery. And it’s difficult, don’t get me wrong. It takes some getting used to, but it’s just fun.
I’m still unhappy (to say the least) about losing my story, but I’ve pushed on with my game writings. I’ve got ideas for a base system relatively fleshed out and I’m hoping for a playtest soon.
The Boy’s party was a huge success, I think I mentioned that. What I didn’t mention was that in the picking up of materials for the pinata I also got some hairspray for fixing pastels in place. I’m looking forward to some nice days so I can bust out the easel and newsprint along with, you guessed it pastels and arting up a storm all over the place. Or off the front porch. Front porch sounds like a good place to art from.
My Eldest is hopefully going to be getting the proper attention on her focus issues. I don’t know what all it will entail, but all of these strategies we have tried and been told to try for years have done less than shit for it. If anything the problem has only grown, in some ways. But hopefully with some more attention, and not some measly half-hearted passing the buck notions, we will get something really going on it.
I’ve gotten a grip on even more guitar. I might even have a total of three songs figured out now! Considering that I mess with it when I can and it’s never involved actual lessons I think I’m doing great. I’m also not suffering from a delusion that I can hit the road and get some gigs and whatever else is involved in the Rock n’ Roll lifestyle. Hula hoops and devil worshiping, right? Is that still an ill conceived notion among the woefully and willfully ignorant? Anyway, it’s not likely to happen although I do have ambitions of adding songwriting and singing to my creative outlets. It’s worth a try.
We took the children to see Kung-Fu Panda 3, and it was fun. The girls loved it, the boy watched for a bit and then took off down the aisle. Considering that including us (5) there was a total of nine people in the theater I think we were alright with a wee bit of wandering. And he never got loud with it, so there was that as well.
