I see this rooster every time I go to the post office:
So I have this stupid cold and feel like crap. I've been having trouble sleeping. The trouble is that I wake up about 9784359873457 times per night because I'm all stuffed up and can't breathe. It's inconvenient. I'm loaded up on benadryl right now to try to alleviate that situation, and I'm starting to feel veeerrryyyy slleeeeepyyyyyyy so I have to write fast. Not that there's much to say.
I am supposed to be doing scrimshaw on a knife. But since I'm a little foggy in the head the last two days, I'm delaying that until I'm fully functional again, and instead driving myself crazy practicing metal engraving. This shouldn't be so difficult. But it is. I sharpened a bunch of different graver points recently (oh I need to talk about me new grinder, will do later) and have been experimenting with those and basically getting frustrated by the whole adventure, again. Must get through this stage! I decided to go ahead and engrave a keychain thingy instead of mindlessly poking at practice plates. It is a practice plate essentially, but I'm putting an image on it and it's a chance to try a few techniques in the hopes that it turns out at least halfway decent, I mean at least a key chain thingy is a useful item. I've already made lots of mistakes. I keep hoping for some sort of engraving epiphany, like one day I'll just magically be really good at it.
Uhhhhh time for sleep......
