No wood working

Last night I attended our marquetry club’s annual Christmas potluck dinner.  It’s always great to get together to socialize and see what everyone is working on.

And that’s about as close as I’ve been to wood working this last week.  It’s moving into that busy time of year.  Both work and family gets a bit frantic with little time for anything else.  Also it’s been cold.  Well, California cold – 50’s in the day and high 30’s at night.

So with part of my shop being in the car port and the other taking an hour to heat up, I just lack the desire to go out there after work.  A hot cup of herb tea, a cat on my lap in a nice warm house is hard to pass up at this time of year.

I’ll get back out there soon, but I’ll be away from the woodworking until after the holidays.

After all, getting covered in sawdust is a summer hobby while writing is a winter sport.

But more about writing later,

  1. I think you’ve got it–write when it’s cold. I have a space heater, a cuppa tea, and my computer. Life is good.
