Thoughtful Thursday - Tension

All day she waited for the moment that was planned months ago. As the weather grew dark and stormy, she lifted her chin defiantly. Nothing was stopping her today.

She had an important package to retrieve. 

But first, there was a workshop on building tension. 

As the workshop started, she received a message from a friend, which contained a video. It was from his toddler. She wanted to play it right then, but the authors had begun speaking about tension.

For nearly two hours she listened to their suggestions and comments. They offered tricks and suggested ways to... 

But what did the young boy have to say to her?

Right... The workshop. Oh, a book recommendation that sounds interesting. She writes it down. 

It is question time and she challenges them to talk about positive ways to create tension that don't involve dramatic things like bombs. Mostly because she thinks they could all use some positivity.

Naturally, there's the obvious example involving two consensual adults. 

The meeting comes to a close and she plays the video. He would like her to go trick or treating with them on Monday. Her heart melts because he is supremely adorable and of course she will go trick or treating!

And finally. She gets her package of books that have stories she wrote in them. Immediately, she has to sign a copy. Her mind goes blank. What can she say? She figures it out.



Then she lugs the heavy bag of books to her car and sticks the key in the ignition. Something is off about it, but the car starts so she leaves. Snow pelts the windshield. She's on edge because it's hard to see between the snow and the gleam of the traffic and car lights on the wet roads.

She reaches home and her car key falls apart. After logging the books into her home, she realizes she forgot to address the signing to the person. 

Oops.

Ciao,

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

My DRAWING course is done. I was happy to be learning it, but I am looking forward to not having graded assignments. After this, I will continue another course I started, which is entirely self-paced. I'll continue sharing my drawings on my Instagram: @thewritebuttons   On the HOME front, I have made a lot of progress on my couch project. Really, it will be a loveseat. I finished the sewing portion of the seat section, the wood base, and have nearly finished the wood back for it. I've added wheels to it instead of legs because I want to be able to move it for easy cleaning. Today, I am working on the sewing of the back piece. I acquired all the hardware I needed for attaching everything. I will have a wood skirt to do, which will help everything stay in place. I also have the sofa cover for it, though I will still have to figure out the arms. I'm taking a break on the sewing until thimbles come later this week because I'm tired of pricking my fingers.  As far as MUSIC

Slumps

Image by Ulrike Mai For quite awhile, I was stuck in nearly every area of my life. I couldn't even think up ways to get unstuck. And I was sleeping terribly, so perhaps there is a connection there. Recently, I became unstuck. I don't know how or why, but lately I see a problem and can think up a work around in seconds. I may not have the energy to execute it, but at least I am getting the ideas for when I do have the energy. Maybe it's because I started a gratitude journal or because I'm beginning to see the light at the end of my renovation tunnel. It could be the hope I've felt since the inauguration happened. Who knows, maybe it's coffee. Speaking of renovations, there has been some slight progress on the bathroom front. They took measurements and will hopefully have materials soon. I don't know when, but hopefully soon. I had a look at the floor I was originally going to get and it wasn't available anymore. The one that was just like it had a pattern
