But I am secretly delighted that he's gone back to work. The first semester of the university started on Monday and I've had 3 entire days all to myself. Now don't get me wrong. I've enjoyed having Peter around this summer. But, sheesh, three months?
Look at that table full of bronze pieces up there. I've gotten so much done. It feels good to be able to just work away in my studio with no distractions. It's almost like a guilty pleasure. It's almost as good as chocolate. OK, chocolate is much better.
I love the way these beads look like a small army marching away in a sort of confused disorganized way.
These beads look a little like ginger snaps to me. I'd like to have a ginger snap right now. But I've sworn off sugar and I am nearly certain that ginger snaps are full of sugar.
And then I had a bead cap binge today. There is no easily understood rationale for having a bead cap binge. Except maybe that swearing off sugar, which unfortunately includes chocolate and giner snaps, has forced me into binging in other ways.
I think maybe having all of this time to myself is making me delirious. Or seriously hungry. Or both.
