September Desktop

Yeah, the first of the month isn't until tomorrow. But tomorrow is Saturday. And on Saturday mornings I'll bet you've got stuff to do.  You're busy with the kids, or brunch, or yard sales, or the CNE, or the airshow, or rollerblading (do people still do that?) or bladerolling (that's not a thing) or WHATEVER it is you do on a Saturday of a Long Weekend.

So I thought I'd give this to you now, so while you're tidying up your desk and arranging papers so Tuesday's inglorious return to real life won't seem quite so harsh, you can just take this and pop it on your screen.  That way, when you boot up the ol' PC Mac on Tuesday you can go "ahh" cause it's already done.

Or, more likely, you've already left early cause you don't work from home so the hours don't weirdly blend into one another like one of those melted tri-colour popsicle things. In unrelated news, I've had three iced coffees this afternoon.

Have a wonderful long weekend!

Happy Birthday(s) Mom and Dad!

My parents' birthdays are one week apart (today and last Thursday).  They were on a kayak trip last week with my aunt and uncle - and the wind and waves were so rough that my Mom actually broke her kayak paddle!  They didn't have any spares, so Dad and my uncle Macgyvered it "by shoving bits of wood down the shaft and then [using] duct tape to hold it together - all while sitting in the middle of a windy lake" (all this in a text from Mom after they got home).

I thought it might be nice to remind them of their resourcefulness in this birthday card I made for them.  Aren't I a nice daughter?


Here's a little guy I drew for an upcoming project...I'm not sure if he's going to get used but I liked him enough to post. Wikipedia told me that the word "gopher" doesn't actually refer to a specific animal; instead, it's sort of general term applied to "field rodents." So, little guy - you may not get used and you certainly aren't a real animal.  That's two strikes against you. GOPHER!
