Pretty Cat

I’m not going to lie. Motivation is not coming easy in August. Dog days I guess.

I did manage to make a postcard that will be going out to Middle School Libraries. I intended to send it out to arrive on Labor Day, but that’s just not going to happen. It’s a bit harder to get stuff done when you don’t have a teacher or a boss as a motivator. I’m quite happy with the way it turned out and hopefully it’s eye-catching enough to intrigue some librarians. I’m considering addressing them to “The Head Book Wrangler” just to be different. I’m sure they all get tons of junk mail and anything to attract attention to East to Adonia is good.

Here’s the postcard:

This is how I felt when I started this blog. And whenever I’m doing something super fun, like Pennsic.

Of course, the novelty and excitement wears off and I’m stuck in this mode instead:

The same thing can be said about cleaning, working out, practicing instruments, writing, arting, and life in general. Yes it’s true, I have a short attention span…

Hey! I got a cat yesterday! Her name is Bella, and she’s a pretty little kitty. I got her from S.T.A.F.F. Animal Shelter in Laurie, MO. She’s about 6 years old and she’s super sweet. So far she’s acclimating to our house really well. She’s just checking everything out. She meows quite a bit, but I’m guessing that will pass. And she kept me up all night, but I don’t really blame her for that. She’s in a huge new place and there was a thunderstorm. I tried to get a pic of her using the camera on my computer, but no go. So that will have to wait.

The little cartoon of the dudette is from teh awesome blog Hyperbole and a Half if you don’t read you should. It Will make you laugh, and her posting habits make me feel better. 🙂

I promise I’ll post about Pennsic in the next couple of days. I should have done it a week ago, but like I said…

Ooh, Shiney!
