time to breathe

i have to say its heavenly to onlywork 4 days a week. it's been a long time since i felt like i had time to breathe. We're also enjoying s little stretch of gorgeous not too hot not too humid weather so that helps immensely as well. I've been immersed in art paperwork off adn on over the last few weeks. I'm re-entering my work into Artworks. I had bought it a while back and then lost it when my computer crashed and finally have gotten it re-installed...THIS time I'm BACKING UP as i go! If you aren't familiar with it, check it out, it's a great program for keeping track of work. I used to keep binders with all the info on each quilt, and slides etc. but with no ability to have slides processed locally anymore i;ve all but quit doing them adn haven't kept up with the paperwork either. its not the most fun thing to do but necesssary adn will be well worth it in the end. it IS fun to be able to categorzie the work and pull up all of the fence pieces for example....
My catch up was hampered when i broke my glasses the other day!. Big OOPS! I was working in the yard, and they were covered in water drops that weren't evaporating (one of the usual high humidity days) so took them off adn set them on the walkway where i was standing for supposedly just a second... and of course, forgot, adn ran over them when i slid the trash can over..... i didnt know whehter to laugh or cry! they were a total wreck! l knew my dh was out runnign errands so i called him adn asked him to pick up some readers for me so i could make it through the weekend, and he just happened to be right in front on my eye doc's office and stopped in right as they were closing. they sent me a pair of readers.....(while laughing!!) that worked great. (for reading. nothign else) i went in this morning to see if there was any way they coudl be repaired and in 5 minutes they were back to normal (well almost .... i do have a crack on the lower edge of one side). now THAT was talent. i could not believe she could take that
little twisted pile of mess and make them back into usable glasses. it definatly paid to get the
*made for people who are rough on their stuff* frames.
so. not much art beign made. but i have played just a little bit with my new camera.....

My mind is doing a swiss cheese thing, but my son says that the Canada Council, who fund artists projects from time to time, no longer take slides. It all has to be digital. He is in art school and learning how to document everything.
Progress and all that.
I'm glad they could ressurect your glasses Clair. I'm so blind I never take mine off except to sleep. I did bend them rather dramatically when I was using an apple picker on the end of a very long pole to get the last apple from w-a-y up in the tree and it fell and hit me square in the eye. The glasses probably are why I didn't really injure the eye. It (the apple) made a huge pop noise.
