Fridaily, catching up after being ill.

I am recovered, mostly. I still have a bit of an upper chest tickle, and Guppy sounds like she's got a cotton balls in both nostrils when she talks, but we're both nearly up to full energy.

Plugging away at various pieces of artwork that aren't going as quickly as I'd like. I can't show you any of them yet! I'm disappointed to realize that today is the last day of the month already. Where did July GO? I haven't written a word in over a week now, largely because I cancelled my childcare so I didn't infect them... I am pleased that I have kept up on every order that's come in. It's particularly lovely getting orders I don't have to do a thing to fulfill. I wasn't sure how much I'd like Fulfilled by Amazon, but it's working well for me so far.

Went shopping today and am prepared for a weekend of fresh veggies and chili. Noms.

I have a new vacuum cleaner! I finally got fed up with my cheap Dirt Devil, which served me faithfully, but left me utterly deafened, for many years. I did some research and decided on a Shark, Rotator Pro. I went to Lowe's, but they were out, then swung by Fred Meyer's on a whim... where they had coupons for 20% off, bringing the price down to $40 less than Lowe's sale price. Woot! It is considerably quieter (and FAR shinier) than the old vacuum.

Okay, a little snack and it's back to sketching for me. Much to do, and I'm excited by what I'm working on.

I leave you a photo from earlier in the week:

You know you're really truly an adult when you get excited about a vaccuum cleaner!

I'm glad you're on the mend!

July just vanished, to my great dismay. I'm not done with that month -- bring it back!

Glad you're feeling better!

I got a Shark Pro on your recommendation, and although I was a bit nervous at first because it doesn't seem to have a good equivalent for the one attachment I used to do EVERYTHING with on my old Dirt Devil -- the really long tube thing for the attachment hose -- I like it a lot so far! Very weird having all these attachments and options; it feels (and looks!) so futuristic. Thanks for the tip!

(Orion has built our old Dirt Devil a pegleg for its broken wheel and insists it'll still be useful out in the shop, since everything works on it except for this teensy little "falling over constantly" problem. Better him than me, I guess.)

It CANNOT be the end of July; this is tragic. I've worn a (light) sweater all day -- it's not even proper T-shirt weather! noooooooo.
