I skipped the usual Monday post because the Idea Fairy has not visited me in awhile, and because I have a weird, stuffy head-cold thing happening. It’s very glamorous. Today I feel much better, and am getting back into the swing of things. (I’m wearing actual pants. Not pajama pants, but pants with a zipper and a button.)
I woke up like dis.
I’ve been busy with Etsy things lately. The vintage shop is closed, and has been closed for about three weeks now. Not because I want it to be closed, but because my car is still broken. As in, she ain’t goin’ no place kind of broken. I’m too far from the post office to walk, there’s no one that can drive me, and having the mail carrier pick up any Priority packages would only work for about half the shop. The rest is too heavy.
So she’s closed, hopefully to reopen sometime before I turn 40. And I’m beginning to think a horse and chariot combo would be more reliable than an automobile.
I can totally see myself with one of those. Every girl needs a chariot.
The print shop, however, is getting all sorts of much-needed attention. Right now there is no international shipping (those packages need to be taken to the post office) but it will be brought back as soon as I have a set of wheels.
My printer is getting a workout.
The icing on the cake is that my camera is beginning its long, slow death march. The auto-focus is screwed up, it’s no longer reading the battery life correctly, and the lens likes to zoom in and out, erratically, all on its own. Yay! Fun times! I will continue to use the damn thing until it either dies or is unusable, because the cameras I’m looking at to replace it are mucho dinero and I’m a tightwad. That’s the second Canon camera I’ve had that’s started acting up after about 2 years of use.
It wouldn’t be a big deal, but this blog is kinda-sorta maybe a little bit PICTURE HEAVY. In case no one has noticed that.
So. That’s the news from here, where it’s cold and rainy and I’m stuck in the house. Not that I’m complaining, but the dog and I have run out of things to talk about.
See you later!
