This week has been mostly about getting back into the swing of things at work after the holidays, so there aren't too many super fun pictures to share. But good things to talk about nonetheless, and the feel of life going forward.
1. I like podcasts! I mentioned this just a couple of weeks ago, and my great commenter Sally suggested the podcast Futility Closet. It's has short (~10-15 minute) segments about forgotten historical events coupled with lateral thinking puzzles. I've totally fallen in love- it's really fabulous (thanks Sally!!) and I've listened to almost three years of their episodes in the last three weeks. I've basically had it constantly playing whenever I'm not at work. I've almost caught up now, and I don't know what I'll do when I have to wait a week for a new episode. It's just fun!
2. I like nice (mild) surprises! I got my new SAQA journal last week and when I sat down last night to read it, I flipped through it and saw my photoreceptor quilt staring up at me! So cool! A few months back I'd received an inquiry from SAQA about doing a feature on the SAQA OK/KS/MO regional exhibition Our Changing Landscape (for which I did a catalog), but after replying to them, I never heard back, so I thought they must have decided not to feature it. I was thus pleasantly surprised to see my entry (among others) in the journal!
I hope everyone is having a good week and staying warm! Thanks to Lee Anna for keeping us positive!
