a day

A day with an early start.

There are very few things that will get me out of bed before 7am. Even fewer things will get me out of bed before 6:30am. One of those things is my dad hosting the annual Back-to-the-50s registration breakfast at the restaurant.

So by 10am this morning I had already waitressed for 1 1/2 hours, taken almost 3 rolls of film full of photos of old cars, and gone shopping with my mom. Around 12:45 I made myself more coffee and a breakfast smoothie to try to trick my brain into believing I hadn’t been awake for that long…it didn’t work…

I did manage to create a new box for my book series, scanned in some film, uploaded a few photos to Flickr, applied to a film festival, finished a project for a friend, and got an image started for an epic screen printing workshop session tomorrow night. I am amazed at everything I managed to get done today! Really, I am amazed at this entire week. I feel better after doing this, and I have learned a lot about my distraction level and how I work best. I think this will help a lot this summer.

On we go! I’m very grateful for another good, productive day and I am very ready to head to bed and read. Goodnight world!
