(This photo? It has nothing to do with anything, really. But how could I not have a photo? And do you know how many macro shots I have taken in the past 24 hours? So there you have it.)
Thanks for indulging me in a little silliness this week. I promise I have no intention of busting in on the lovely Ani D and stealing her beautiful couch, nor do I plan to really hide in Canada with my rented lens. I am, however, feeling a bit punchy. This week - last week - the week to come - well, they're just a bit on the nutty side. A deadline approaches on which all my final edits and photography for book 2 will be due. And no matter how much work I've been doing on it for months, or how prepared I thought I was, deadline time is...well, Deadline Time. Or as Betz' children so eloquently named it, "Dead Lion". Love that.
For now, a few photo shoots linger which I'm very excited about. Then there's a backlog of photo editing that needs to be done. You've probably noticed I'm not big on photo editing - I have such respect for the wizards of PhotoShop, but I struggle to find the patience. So me editing a lot photos looks something like being locked in my studio (from the outside), chained to the computer, with plenty of chocolate and coffee as self-bribery. But then I get all jacked up on caffeine and try to escape. It's not pretty.
So for right now, I need to step away from the blog for a bit while I focus on all of the above. I am so happy to report, though, that after the long weekend, SoulePapa has happily volunteered to step in with entertainment in my absence. I'm wondering if me telling you that is like when I tell the kids that Papa is making lunch? Because around here that means nachos. And nachos for lunch is always a fun treat.
See you in a week, friends!
