There’s Always Something



Here is our sweetie, Paige, who appeared on my iPhone tonight, to wish her Grandpa a happy birthday. We had a low key birthday celebration today. Sunday night, we went out to dinner with the Barnes family and had a wonderful time. Tonight, I made Steve salmon roasted on a bed of potatoes and red onions. It was his last meal for a while. He is having a colonoscopy on Thursday so the liquid diet starts tomorrow.

I am so frustrated. I finally got my life in order and made it down to the studio today and took some photos and was committed to getting back to creating and blogging. But, my apple photo program is not working. It keeps crashing and I get an error message so I can’t retrieve any photos from the camera on my laptop. I will have to use my desk top tomorrow.

I am hoping to get a quilt done in a week for the SAQA Metaphors on Aging. I have had an idea of what I wanted to do since the call for entries was announced. More on that later.

I have been really busy trouble shooting some problems with the SDA registration. After a hour and a half skyping with the web manager, I think we have ironed out most of the problems. It something I really like to do. I find it challenging rather than troublesome. It makes me feel pretty good when I figure out what the software is doing. We have a brand new system so I am sort of test driving it.

I was able to scan my latest drawings. I have a Kindle book on sketching. He starts out by showing the difference between a drawing and a sketch. It made me feel much better. Sketches are not supposed to look like a finished product, ready for framing!! Basically, you are looking for lines and shapes which you render with pencil and paper.

So my next challenging thing is to figure out what happened to iPhoto. I think that is going to mean a trip to the Apple Store.

    Happy Birthday to Mr. C!!! Paige is so cute and I cannot get over how quickly she is growing. Your software program is why I always liked math, it was the elation after figuring out a vexing problem. Probably why I like good mysteries, too. Interesting distinction between a drawing and sketch. It made sense, once I thought about it. Hope you have a beautiful rest of the week.
