Monday was a wonderful day.
I am so thankful for this journal! *glomps 'Shouts of Joy'* Yesterday I combed through my 2007 entries, and I was able to come up with a bunch of stuff for my job self-appraisal. For the first time in forever I got it handed in on the due-date! And that thanks in no small part for the memory-jog this journal provided.
My wonderful sister-in-law sent me a riding clip that would have had my hyarmi up on their feet and howling in approval, could they see it. I didn't want to hit your e-mail boxes with a big clip you may or may not appreciate, but I did find it hosted out on the web here. I should link it to my hyarmi essay, heh heh!
Thanks to the interest of a couple wonderful people who commented on my anniversary essays, I went ahead and started writing the Shado-essay yesterday. And this is the wonderful part--while I was digging in my picture file for the wacky pictures that go with the development of the Shado/Shado's-race--I both found my black-skinned 't'DoL-variant' picture I'd mentioned in my t'DoL-essay (and it's DATED!--it moves the estimate for t'DoL picture #2 to April '93 instead of May) AND I found the original drawing I derived my Hileko-face from for the cover of my hyarmi stories (and that's dated too!). I had NO IDEA I still had that! *dances*
Last but not least: Book 1 verbal editing is COMPLETE! Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah! I can start in on book 2 when I get back from my trip.
CONGRATULATIONS! on getting your verbal editing done! (How fares 'Nothing Gold' so far and how long do you have before your trip? Since I recall you wanting that finished before leaving for it. Or that could be this and my misremembering, but having both done would be absolutely terrific, I'd imagine.)
Glad to hear that you've been able to find the pictures and having found them dated too!
*points at movie* Pretty! Glad to hear your Monday was such a wonderful day! ^-^
Thank you! =D 'Nothing Gold' is coming along slowly but surely. Only three scenes left, really. I'm hoping between Tuesday evening, Wednesday evening, and Thursday evening, I can finish it. Then I can start on some much-needed editing on my plane flight Friday. (Yes, I really want to have both done before I leave, because being forcibly stopped in writing something for a week is the best way to get myself a nasty block.)
It was wonderful! As well as revisiting a bunch of the other wacky things I drew back then.
*beams* Glad you liked it! That horse is incredible--they both are.
Hope your week is going well!
Thanks! It feels really great (and odd) to have it finally done!
My problem is I've got stuff all over the place--what struck me on looking at them was the jumping around with media: marker, color pencil, pen on occasion.
(Indeed! I'd have loved to see it in person!)
Woohoo! I'm glad to hear your Shouts of Joy Journal was able to do that for you! Were your bosses surprised? ^_~
*gapes at video* Wow!! *blinks in awe* That is indeed amazing... Whew... and what a beautifull horse, too! Really amazing job that gal and her horse did...
Yay! Congrats on the completion of book 1 verbal editing!!
She seems to forget every year how late I was the prior year, for which I'm glad. ;)
That horse must be so in shape, because that routine looks exhausting! And now I'll have something to study as a great reference for bareback riding.
