Right Now…

Right now, I am…

still tweaking the next design for the shop. I’d originally planned to unveil it today, but I’m not happy with it yet.

desperately in need of the paychecks I’m owed. I hate hate hate when clients take their sweet time getting the check in the mail to me.

really wanting to find some metallic screenprinting inks for use on paper. Printing with fabric inks on paper doesn’t turn out so well, I’ve found.

also really wanting to take Sienna to the beach for the first time this summer. She loves bath time, and I can’t wait to see what her reactions to the waves are! (her daddy dog was very skeptical of this big moving water thing when my sister and I first took him)

doing laundry and checking things off my bloggy to-do list.

still thrown off mentally by having that holiday yesterday, in the middle of the week. Today feels like a Monday, but is not. My productivity has sadly reflected this.

missing ice cream. I love it, but my lactose intolerance does not, most of the time. So I only have it rarely anymore.

doing some finance planning for the three trips I’m taking later this year: one at the end of August to see family up north, one for Thanksgiving to see family and go to my high school reunion up north, and one for Christmas to see Ian’s family in Colorado.

realizing I never actually replied to my last Lovely Letters letter from my penpal – oops! One of those times where I wrote it in my head and thought I had actually written/sent it. Remedying stat.

looking around at my office and thinking I really need to clean it.

plotting out more color combinations for shop things.

editing photos for the recipe I’m posting tomorrow, and it’s making me hungry.

listening to Sienna have little puppy dreams. Lots of yippy barks and tail wagging in whatever dream she’s having right now. 🙂
