spring has sprung, and with it a whole host of fun things to have on your radar as temps rise and the sun stays with us a little bit longer each day.
So I neglected to post last week. Don’t worry, I did not fall off the face of the blogging earth again. No, it was what you might call “a doozy of a week.” To be honest, Daylight Savings Time really messed with my sleep schedule the week prior (ergo, my schedule in general), so studio productivity was sleepy in tandem. At the start of last week, I felt a lot better and more rested, but with the bottleneck of work from the week before, shipping out my last custom design project for a while, and then a car break in…well, despite my best laid plans, everything remained off-kilter.
Yes, a car break in. After years of driving in big cities, our vehicle finally fell victim to a smash-and-grab. What’s worse is I am a nut about not leaving stuff in the car, or at minimum hiding it in the wheelwell of our SUV’s trunk area. Joe exists in a more trusting, “what could possibly happen” space, so when he drove him and an out-of-town friend to meet me for dinner, he was less adamant about the friend bringing or hiding his stuff. Yada yada yada; the rear passenger window is now made of cardboard and duct tape.
But as always, I’m your silver linings gal, so I guess if I have to find the good in this particular situation, it’s that I will never spend another second of my life negotiating where my husband should hide shopping bags/messenger bags/anything that looks remotely interesting when we are out and about in SF. He gets it now. Hide that shit!
The other silver lining is that I had a bunch of posts halfway prepped last week, but simply couldn’t finish them, so this week you get three posts! That’s right! You get a Monday post! And you get a Monday post! EVERYBODY GETS A MONDAY POST! And it’s a good one.
Here’s some stuff that’s been on my radar. All of it would be carried with me or hidden in the trunk of the car, were I ever driving around with any of it. View more
