Currently kicking back with a mug of tea, a magic brownie (thanks, J!), and Taj Mahal singing "Freedom Ride" (which I felt the urge to play after listening to David Massengill's "Don Quixote's Lullaby (For Abbie Hoffman)": "When I went off the change the world / I never thought the world would dare change me") before shedding my madrigal-wear (my dressiest blouse and my one remaining long black skirt) for something more conducive to playing with ink. Or pentameter. Or snoozing. Or simply enjoying the latest "Wait! Wait!":
I think Elizabeth Bear's guilt gorilla has a cousin here. A grumpy gorilla-cousin, thwacking me with my metal triangle and litter-box scooper and deck-rail planters and - oh, stuff it, I have been busy.
[Roy Underhill: "Sometimes a dovetail is just a dovetail. . ."]
Yesterday: cat to/from the vet for her annual exam; a half-hour with an Inkberry exercise; four hours at the day job; twelve invoices at the other day job; a benefit for the local humane association (bid on Emmylou Harris's stage boots); dinner with the in-laws; elation and frustration over the posters intended for my church's wayside pulpit (they arrived much sooner than expected and looked terrific - until the ink started smearing off in spots. Gah!).
Today: guild meeting (elected treasurer; picked up five carpenter pencils and a fair amount of sign-production advice); rock band rehearsal (guest-singing one song and adding back-up to another); shopping (a roll of laminate for the posters; a sweater for an upcoming croquet tournament; two wedding presents and a shower giftie); madrigal dinner, at which we sang
Pipe Shepherds Pipe
(Hm. Maybe that should be my next free-writing exercise. "Take the titles of three madrigals and. . .")
On deck: at least one poetry packet; four paid writing/editing assignments (plus one freebie); a set of policy recommendations; two weddings, a shower, and an ordination; four calligraphy commissions; both pets to the groomers; continuing the search for a skirt or dress for the aforementioned croquet tournament. . .) - -
Oh, the heck with it, at least until tomorrow. Bath, book, and bed for me.
