Boho Lampshade

A quick little project that makes my Boho heart happy.

Catching up

The year has been flying by.  Here we are in September already. So what’s been going on.

I had a knee injury that sidelined a lot of my physical activity late last year.  I had been up to getting in a 3 mile half run in every morning and then could not even get to the end of the street.   It was addressed with surgery at the beginning of May, and I’m still working on getting back to being able put lots of steps in daily without having to use ice and anti-inflammatory meds at the end of the day.  It’s been slow going.   Despite what the brain says, the body likes to emphatically remind me I’m not as young as I used to be.

Back to school has been hectic and the routines had to adjust for that.  The day job has not let up either.

The office is still being put back together from the big repaint.  Mostly it’s a matter of organizing / finding things a new home.  There’s still one more curtain that needs finishing.

I did try my hand at knitting again.   Being a lefty, YouTube has been helpful as most written instructions simply cannot be reversed unlike crochet and most embroidery.

More recently I’ve begum playing with paint again.   The various pouring techniques are so much fun.   I have five canvases done from a couple of weeks ago and have plans, and supplies even, for more.

In the midst of it all, I’ve been part of a writing team for a TTRPG. They are a great community, and I’m excited to see it all come together.

Today is a federal holiday for those of us in the US, Labor Day.   My son and I spent some time cleaning up the yard.  I was able to put up the additional hummingbird feeder and the bug house.   Michaels had rod iron shepherd hooks on clearance for $5 each which gave me an easy way to hang them up.

Returning inside saw the Navajo art get properly hung, and my elephant herd redone, this time with the addition of a new Buddha.

Elephant figurines and a turquoise Buddha backed by plant life

More to come later.
