Ahoy Maties

I'm still here. I haven't had much of an urge to blog this week, the heat is mind numbing and I'm trying to work in the studio every day. I'm able to work for a few hours, then the temps creep up to triple digits, I get a headache and I come in and plop on our cool leather sofa for the afternoon and read. Then I go back out in the evening for a few more hours. Also catching up on filing and paperwork that seems never ending and I moved a bunch of stuff to an external hard drive because my computer was down to less than 2g. I did manage to build some new shelves yesterday for my studio and also managed to get a huge headache from that, whine whine.....
I'm still reading Ahab's Wife and images of ships and the ocean are in my dreams every night. What a book this is! I have Wesley here for just two more weeks and then we take her off to college, and Gerry and I start our therapy sessions (just kidding). Wesley shot a lot of video in Maine and Gerry is trying to convince her to make a video to go with her song. We just got her the new Macbook pro and we pick up Final Cut pro software at UNC on Friday so she should be able to put together a kick ass video. Meanwhile, I'm using a computer that is older than dirt. One of these days, I'm going to be the one getting a new computer! Well. that's all I got, not much excitement around here, too hot to function properly!

Stay cool! I was just telling Sarah about Wesley's song and how great it was. She's going to rocket in college.

YES. Totally sick of the heat. I know its summer, and that is when its supposed to be hot but I AM DONE. I don't want to get in the car to run errands, or mow the lawn or step outside. UGH. We need some rain and a break in this weather and SOON. (I'm glad I don't live in TX.)

it is hard to stay motivated in this heat. we have a show in NH next week so we have to keep working. i am hoping the weather will be cooler there!
Wesley is going to love her macbook pro... when Jeff wants to get something done fast he borrows mine.

Lord girl it is hotter then....
I hate this weather it makes me want to hibernate like a bear in winter....
Give Wesley our best and wishes for an extremely great first year!
and you and Gerry- you will be like kids in the sand box! We were the first 5 years after ours left. I miss them more now then I did then...

Had to chuckle about Wesley, her new MAC and your (sorry) old one. We sent our boy off to college with a new one too... That was a couple of years (and computers) ago now! Hey, totally worth it. Not complaining.... Hope the therapy sessions go well. :)
