Scribe

Dates on calendar are closer than they appear.


Ug. It’s been a long time since I’ve had this kind of trouble with a scroll. I guess you could say that I’m just "not feeling the love." Probably indicative of the problems I’m going to continue to have on projects of this type in the new Life After Baby. In addition to sucking the energy out of me, she appears to also be sucking the creativity away also. Hopefully that too will change with time.

So. Text is done, gold is done, all base coats are down. Tonight I’ll start the whitework. I’d say that "tonight I’ll *do* the whitework" except that experience tells me that it always takes at least twice as long as I think it’s going to. Then I’ll just need to paint in the badge, and if I have time there’s a special detail that I want to add. I don’t know if that will be possible though. We’ll see.

Oh, and somewhere in there I need to sew the side seams of Charlotte’s chemise back up and make two meat pies for our lunch contribution. While still making it to two doctor’s appointments, a dentist appointment and a haircut appointment.

I didn’t plan this well, did I? Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose...
