Getting a late start today, though I have washed a bunch of dishes. I’ve been slacking off — playing with my photographs over on Flickr. I’d forgotten how much I enjoyed that.
So, let’s get down to business. Going back to the die today. Library.
Three hours in the library will hopefully be very useful. We are at odds about what to do for bookcases on that newly cleared wall. I think I have a plan on where to start today, and the sooner I get started, the sooner I can get back to Flickr. 😉
UPDATE ONE: So things were going along swimmingly in the library. I had decided to focus on this area today:
Yikes, I know.
I was actually getting a lot of sorting done, some trash immediately tossed, some collectibles uncovered which may or may not stay a part of my collections…
And then disaster struck —
Psycho Kitty wanted to help. She was nosing around and jumped onto the windowsill and I hear a loud crash!
It isn’t as if the poor fellow hadn’t had bits snapped off before. He’s been missing the tip of his hat and the top and bottom of his staff/wand for years…but this is the biggest destruction yet. I immediately broke into gut-wrenching sobs…not sure why, except I’ve carried him around from place to place since I was in high school, lo so MANY years ago.
I picked up all the shards, and I think I can maybe glue the big pieces back together…but the heart went out of my cleaning for today. I will try to do the other hour and a half later today, but I make no guarantees.
At least I made some progress:
UPDATE TWO: Still haven’t gotten anything more done, but I read a great post over on Russell’s 365 Trinkets, and I am beginning to wonder if I am too attached to the old fellow…maybe I shouldn’t bother trying to fix him, but just be glad for the time we’ve had together and consign him to the Big Junk Room in the Sky. What do you guys think? (Realize that the consensus is non-binding, and I may do the opposite no matter what you say…) 😉
UPDATE THREE: Aside from doing some more dishes, I didn’t ever get back to the housework today… I did get some editing work done, but I feel a bit guilty about the cleaning. I was just restless and out of sorts for the rest of the day after the accident with the wizard. And tomorrow is shaping up for errands, so may not get much done then either… Ah, well. It is still better than where I started this year. And we may have a lead on some bookcases…
I too tend to hold on to things way tooooo long. However, when they break that badly I toss them with huge sniffles and a great big SNICKERS BAR.
The thing is, the part that broke is just the swirl of his cape…so is it really “that badly”? I have set him in the Studio for now. We’ll see if I make up my mind. 🙂
Then it must look worse in the pic, i thought it was his face/head broken up. Course, I gots old eyes and no glasses too LOL
