Another Long Day...

Long Day, originally uploaded by Cathy (Kate) Johnson.

...my recent trip was a bit of a blur. Still is, since getting home--I'm catching up with correspondence, packaging up the rest of the book orders that came in while I was gone (and since I got back!), double-checking the class roster, making sure everyone gets onto the Flickr pool (if they want to) and that they're on my class mailing list macro. I still need to find out about the forum format to see if it will work for us...

I redid the Watercolor Pencil Workshop CD master yesterday, as noted, and added the lightfastness article to it, so it will have even MORE that wasn't in Watercolor Pencil Magic, my North Light book that's now out of print. The research was interesting, if a bit confusing, given some of the conflicting claims!  This time I burned TWO masters, with two different programs, so surely one will work! I checked both, and both looked fine on my machine...but then so did the original one I sent out the 10th...

I've got a new mouse to install and a new keyboard to replace this one--can you believe I actually wore some of the letters off?  I think I've owned it less than a year...I may spend just a bit more time at the computer than the average... ;-)

My darling husband is still in California, where he tells me his mom actually got to go home from the hospital yesterday, to everyone's surprise! Hooray...much faster than they had feared!

The drawing above is my favorite of him, from the trip...a rare moment of relaxation and peace.




What a wonderful sketch Kate. your love just suffuses the drawing!

Re: Joseph

Thank you, Shirley, I think it does, doesn't it!



I've worn some letters off of my keyboard as well.

Good to have you back.

Re: Keyboard

Maybe they don't make them as well as they used to! (I used to have a keyboard "sleeve" of thin, flexible plastic that was just wonderful--no spills, no cat hair, no wearing off letters--but there are so many keyboards now, I haven't seen one of those that would fit in ages...

And thanks, Pablo...
As usual, you take my breath away with all that you have done, are doing, and will do! Good luck with everything, dear heart. This sketch of Joseph is so full of tenderness.
Manic, that's me, Miss Laura.*G* There's a REASON I called this blog the quicksilver workaholic! Babble babble...

And oh my yes, great amounts of tenderness...I wish he were here right now.
Peace and calm is goood ... and you two lovely people deserve a lot of it. Soon tranquility will surround you both. But you are right, even stress is easier handled together than alone!
Isn't that odd? I just don't even feel it as much when we're together...feel better mentally AND physically.

Thanks, girl...
