I'm trying to be better at remembering to post what I'm up to - even when it feels like I'm not up to all that much. Given my work schedule lately, there hasn't been much going on that's of any particular consequence. Still the past two weeks have included some crafting of new stuffed animals (photos to be posted at some point), a lucky find of a sale on felt at Joann's Fabrics, reading Ragtime by E.L. Doctorow (high-quality historical fiction for our current favorite era), watching Stranger than Fiction and falling in love with both Will Ferrell and Maggie Gyllenhall's characters, and finishing up my tattoo (again photo's forthcoming).
Had my tattoo appointment yesterday and while I'm totally ecstatic about how beautiful it came out in the end, I must admit to wondering why the heck I ever started in on this piece. Particularly at the point at which I was getting my elbow pit done, I thought that this was the dumbest endeavor I've taken yet. That said, once it's healed I'm sure I'll start thinking about the next one.
If you're anywhere near Boston this Saturday night, make sure that you go and see Ron's art opening. It's titled "In Between the Devil and Deep Blue Sea" and is filled with fantastic spit-shaded watercolors that echo traditional themes. It's from 5-7pm at Bodega. You'll have to find your own way to Bodega since it's not advertised, but once there you'll be in for a major treat - both in artwork and in shopping. Plus spend money and you'll be supporting both my boyfriend and an old, dear friend who co-owns the store.
