I'm alright, I'm alright... It only hurts when I breathe...

The smoke cleared a tad yesterday... the sun actually cast shadows for the first time in about a week. (It's 'clear,' above the smoke, supposedly... certainly it's warm!) But today is as bad as it's been, visibility less than 1/2 mile, the disc of a sun hazy magenta when it shows at all.

It's very eerie and we're all going a little stir-crazy.

Got five Portraits up. (Three are under 'claim.') Have more to post, but I'm happy getting a few up everyday so there's freshness. Must plug away at more EMG entries now, instead. And yes, I did work, too... got the entire set of Allied Health drawings finished before lunch and finished the Christmas card design, too. Some EMG emails written. Have orders to mail (and put finishing touches on) tonight. And then I might just be caught up on all orders that I've been paid for... yay! Oh wait, no, there was a big t-shirt order that I still need to do.

I feel cuddly today.
