November, November, WHERE Y’ALL AT? *shades eyes with hand* *looks around* Seriously, though, didn’t I just write October’s wrap-up post? *shakes head*
November was bad jokes and good stuffing. Fall leaves and journaling. Tea and reading. Taking family pictures of my cousins. (Who never look at the camera. In sketchy lighting. It’s okay. They love them.)
Me: anyone weird drink from my cup?
Mom: it’s just us here…
Me: that’s why I asked.
Me: there are a ton of paper cups, Junior, WHY are you drinking out of a glass?
Jr: it’s my preference to make you work harder.
Me: *does dishes while silently plotting against him*
this is what our great room looked like for Grandma’s party – more pictures here!
This month was mainly absorbed with getting ready for my Great Grandma’s 90th birthday party, and then Thanksgiving. Now that both of those are over I’m not sure what to do. Never mind the fact that it’s also slow season.
*buries self in books*
My dad has been redesigning his website (actually, moving it from CODE to WP, 😮) and this month I started working on graphic design stuff for him. Mainly just featured & banner images for his blog posts. It requires a LOT of staring at Photoshop for two hours wondering what button to click next. And hitting a lot of CTRL Z. I manage to average one blog post per hour. Hey, I even got to use Illustrator!
Needless to say, I have a headache every afternoon from scowling at the computer. (Did I mention I’m using computer screens that are side by side vertically?)
Oh yeah, and I WROTE A SHORT STORY. EEEP. It’s about farm life and summer and watermelon and cows and guess what – I’m going to release it next week. Stay tuned, folks!
I also figured out how to make digital clip art from my own art but I’m having problems with pages wrinkling from watercolor. *sighs*
Yeah, November was a pretty good month. We have a lot going on in December, and then of course there’s January.
Not ready for that yet, guys. (Except maybe I am since I’ve already been planning 2019’s reading list??)
(just look at the pictures and ignore this rambly post.)
HOW WAS YOUR MONTH? PLEASE TELL ME TOMORROW IS NOT DECEMBER. THAT IS ALL.
