Been working on site stuff all this morning, after yesterday being immersed in accounting hell. I really can’t stand bookkeeping, and I’m not very good at it, but Elliott is even worse than me when it comes to the day to day stuff. He’s good when it comes to OTHER parts that I am bad at, namely getting taxes all filed and paid on time, reconciling bank accounts, and so on. I love how we balance each other out with what we can and can’t handle doing. He is an awesome partner to have, in all aspects of life.
I am looking forward to him finishing the evening class he’s been taking for the past two months. 3 nights a week, 3 hours a night. See, after that it gets to be MY turn to do something new. I’m trying to decide what. I was going to take a course in letterpress printing in Seattle, but it’s already started so now I need to wait for the next course. I might do some more metalsmithing classes. I took a week-long intensive metalsmithing course several years ago, and have wanted to continue things. OR I could take art classes again. I did watercolor a couple of years ago, but I’d love to do just basic figure drawing. My art obsession has mostly manifested in buying other people’s art for the past few years, but I’d like to start actually creating my own again.
It’s weird getting to this stage in life, where the girls are mostly independent and I actually have guilt-free time for myself again. Not quite sure what to do with it yet. :)
Anyhow, I’m out of here for the day – lunch with a friend, then time at my shop.
