Caution: Printer Low On Toner
Here we are. Another Friday. The end to a productive week.
It was going to be even more productive when I shared my Valentine's Day printable gift wrap set, but lo and behold, the toner is low on my printer so it was only printing very faded versions of the paper. This in turn made it impossible to shoot the paper 'in action' so to speak. So it will have to wait for next week. Good thing I was ahead of the Valentine's Day game.
Instead, a little glimpse into my world this week.
Today, it is holy-hannah-take-your-breath-away-freezing here. We are in the single digits and it feels anywhere from -5F to -15. Thankfully the woodstove is crankin'.
If you go outside, it's not for any length of time unless your keen on freezing your hot patootie right off. Getting more wood for the fire is a quick trip. The good news is, the sun is shinning against a pretty blue sky. Those aren't clouds.........just woodstove doing its thing. Like it has been all week.
Lucan dog has staked out his position daily. On the futon, doggie blankie in tow, right next to the woodstove.
Oh, the life of a dog.
I've been reading before I go to bed this week. I'm just about finished with To Kill A Mockingbird, again.
I started it in the fall (no kidding), but it's a beat up old pocket book with really, really small print and I need to get stronger readers to be able to read it in bed (which is where I do most of my reading). Finally got a pair and it's so much easier to read, so only have about 20 pages left. If you have never read this book, it is a must. If you have read it, read it again. Truly, every turn of the page has me shaking my head at the unbelievable writing and story telling. That's a feat for a book I've read before (and will read again). It's simply brilliant. Scout, Jem, Atticus, Dill, ....these characters stay with you forever. The movie? One of the few that you can say is as good as the book. Read the book, it's like watching the movie. Watch the movie, it's like reading the book.
Once I'm done with that, I'll be doing more of that 'goal' setting work I've been telling you about. My book from Danielle Laporte arrived and I can't wait to delve into it.
I've been working on a lot of logo designs this week. Creating new ones, revisions on others. Oh and corresponding with and talking to clients from all over (.....Texas, Illinois, North Carolina, Ohio, California, and throw in Kuala Lumpur for good measure), to get more insight into what they want their logo to represent and the tweaks they want to get it just right. Pretty much what the rest of my day looks like today. Great way to round out the week.
What has been happening in your corner of the world? Is it cold? Or are you swimming in the sunshine? Has it been a busy week with multiple projects, or a quieter one where you've been able to take some time for you? Tell me all about it.
Since it's so cold, I need a song that feels a little less frozen. The beat of this makes it feel sunny, never mind the location of the video shoot. So, here's some Mr. Mraz for you. Click here if you're reading via email.
No plans for the weekend at all. Well, other than some work at my desk so I'm ahead of the game come Monday. Oh, and hunkering down by the fire and maybe 'scooch a little closer' to the G man just to stay warm.. What are you up to?
Ciao for now,
