Picking up the torch and passing it along


Cauldron of GoldHeather notes that RJ claims that there's a lull in the Newfoundland Blogosphere. He believes that it's due to the nice weather we've been having. Heather iterates that it just ain't so; that in downtown St. John's they're living in a sea of mist and cold.

The weather out here (11 km away in Torbay) must be better, because while we've had one and a half no-so-great days (Monday and Tuesday afternoon), there was a spectacular sunset last night and today is just beautiful.

So perhaps RJ might have something, if he were talking about me and if I hadn't been posting. But I have, so he isn't and I'm pretty sure he doesn't even come by here much. That may change now that I've linked to him, though!

To sum up what I've been up to:

  • finishing the book
  • writing this, this, this and this
  • taking these, these and these.
  • my in-laws are back from Florida for the summer and we spent an afternoon with them. I get another such today.
  • training Moss
  • playing with Katherine and getting her outside
  • Craft Council meetings and stuff
  • working on several pieces for my October show and for the Annual Members' Exhibit of the Craft Council
  • gardening and taking stock of what should be done this year
  • laundry, housework and other mundane tasks
  • attempting to reduce the pile of stuff in our house somewhat. I'm losing this battle….

Have you been beguiled by the weather? What HAVE you been up to?

Other artists: Is it just me, or is it hard to stay focussed on work when the sun calls you outside?

    1. I am no artist, but I have been eyeing and craving the outdoors, and even rearranging work hours to spend more time enjoying it.
    2. Not from Newfoundland, but my internet is down so I am absentee until it’s fixed.
    3. What have I been up to? My hands and wrists hate my desk job so I’m not up to the usual hobbies (knitting, fiddling, etc). Instead: Paperwork. Reading books for fun. Making a “screen door” (more like a screen curtain) for my brother. Going for walks. Trying new things.

    Hope you and yours are well, Vicky!

    I have it on excellent authority that RJ does in fact visit your site, and that he admires your photography.
