It’s been a hectic few days. Spent most of yesterday driving to and fro. I did what needed to be done, but with so much time spent in the car, I don’t feel as if I accomplished much of anything.

I don’t have a cold. Seems I managed to burn my throat somehow and the ear-ache is a result of the tender nerves in my hurt throat. I just have to wait until it clears up.

The guys are back to pounding in the kitchen again today. Listening to some of the comments they make when they find odd bits in the walls is keeping me amused.

So far we have the prescription medication pills bottle from 1962, a wooden toy soldier circa late 50s?, a bill of lading for a coffin dated 1951 and a half of a play money dollar for “200 Hunky Dory” bucks. Today the conversation is about the railroad spikes used to connect the studs to the support beam they are replacing.

I am doing my best to ignore the hammering and drilling and move forward with the art for my upcoming picture book deadline. I had no idea how much the noise from the other side of the house would distract me. I can’t wait to have my kitchen back up and running and quiet in my studio during working hours again!

I think I now have to run out and get a small space heater. I cannot for the life of me find where I stashed my old one last spring and my fingers are too cold to draw delicate facial features! Maybe this winter will be the one we finally get around to insulating the studio floor!
