Sta-cation. Studio-cation. Garag-cation. Patio-cation. I am sunbathing and reading old magazines that I have let pile up for months. Getting brown ;) Brown fat looks so much better than white fat, you can agree with that.
Yesterday, I read my pile of old Vanity Fairs ... so now they are off the Senior Citizens Thrift store. Today - Entertainment Weekly - A Harry Potter special issue. Very interesting stuff about behind-the-scenes set design and prop makings. Read about Miraphora Mina, prop designer, who work on some of the props for Harry Potter. Like the The Half-Blood Prince’s Potions Book. What a fun job that would be!
Also found out there is a new Masterpiece coming in a couple of weeks - ZEN AND that my favorite childhood TV show, (I can almost hear the soundtrack just thinking about it ... please someone have the good sense to stick with the same soundtrack) - Dark Shadows is coming out in a movie in 2012. Trying not to pay attention to the Casey Anthony debacle on the news.
David and I are painting/distressing some book cases specially made to house his collection of vinyl albums that are currently taking over the family room floor.
Making my way to the studio to PAINT. Still wrapping up some website work. And adding to my Pinterest Rings and Things. But painting is on my list of things to do next!
I have to say, it does feel good to give myself permission to have a mental vacation, to not job hunt, and just relax and not worry about next week. I will wait until next week to worry about that ;)
