« Part 927: Site Updated Part 928 of My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer series Part 929: Juggling Act »

Today will be a rather run-of-the-mill day, if there is such a thing for a designer. We finished the site update yesterday and everything new is posted and the newsletter is out and all is well. That always feels like a good accomplishment.

Now it is time to turn my attention to finishing up the stuff for the next magazine articles. I need to work on the instructions for the dragonfly tray and also sort through all the information that I have on applying patterns to the wood and compiling a nice and comprehensive article. I pretty much know what I want to say, but presenting my thoughts in an organized fashion will be the key. I’ll feel good when everything is done though and I can move on to my next drawings.

So for today, I am keeping this short and just stopping by to say ‘hi’ to you all.

Time to get to work!

Have a great day everyone! :)

Hi, everyone. :)

Good day today. I got a lot done. Mostly just mundane stuff, but I made good headway on my article. Sometimes it is hard to get the point across in a limited amount of space. (especially ME!!!) ;)

I’ll have to hear from my editor as to how long it can be. It is all laid out though so that is good.

I hope you all had a great day too.

Hi, Dennis! I hope you are doing well. Yes – without my coffee I would probably not accomplish much at all! (but only in the morning really!) My day was good but much more to do tomorrow. It makes a good reason to get up though! :) Have a great night and give Silke my best.

Besides your coffee, don’t forget to take a walk and breath. If you can’t walk outside, walk inside. Exercise is extremely important for mental and physical health.

Hi, Bernie!
Yes, we do try to do that. Keith and I both go to the gym three times a week. Even though we are ‘busy’ what seems like all the time, much of our time is spent sitting at the computer or the scroll saw. We started about a year and a half ago and have been pretty good about keeping up with it. There are days we miss, but we try really hard to stay on schedule.

One area we do need to improve on is walking. We used to walk on our days off of the gym so that we were doing something every day. But lately, things have been so busy that we haven’t taken the time to do so. Besides the physical activity, I miss those walks because we live in such a beautiful area. They used to give us time away from the computer and time to unplug. We really have to make an effort to make them happen again.

Take care and thanks for your thoughts. :)
