YAWN - Slow Day Today

For some reason, I'm very tired today, so I've been resting up. There are a lot of things on my "to do" list these days. I've actually been quite busy, although today was no indication of what I've been up to. It's getting unseasonably hot in Austin again (summer tends to do that here) so I always look for interior things I can do to keep myself busy.

I've been meaning to clean out my studio and haven't really done that yet. I also want to work on the new computer, to start to setup the new RAID devices and all, and to start to move things over to the new setup. It's just that these things tend to take a lot of time, and I tend to procrastinate when it comes to working these kinds of things (rather than going out and taking pictures.) I'm much more inclined to be doing that kind of stuff if I'm being honest. (I tend to neglect routine things.)

I've been thinking about it a lot too and it seems that I really want to get a Fuji camera. I want one of those little walkabout cameras that shoots in square format. I've been thinking about all of the things I could do if I had one of those to play with a bit, so that's totally going on my list of things to get, once I start getting things again. (Might be a while for that, as I'm not in a hurry to run out and get a lot of new gear. At least not while it's been too hot to go out shooting a lot really.)

I need to start doing some copy work, so that you can see the wonderful pastels and encaustic paintings I've been working on over the course of the last year or so. I'm very behind in my copy work, so that's also on the list of things to do. I need to update my website. Man, there's a crap-load of stuff I could be doing instead of sitting here complaining about the heat.

When it doubt, there's always tomorrow, right?

Until next time...

Yes, down time is a good thing. At least I feel a bit more rested, and it's too hot to do any real shooting right now anyway.
